“The Carina system is a faster and more reliable solution that fit within our limited budget.”

Robert Clemmer, IT Administrator

Problem

Justice Schools (PreK-8) (Wewoka, Oklahoma) needed to address technology communication issues across their 16-square mile campus with limited budget and resources.

Their existing PBX system could not broadcast announcements from a front office phone. They tried communicating via walkie-talkies, but found walkie-talkies extremely unreliable across their vast campus, especially during emergencies.

Updating firmware on the few legacy speakers on campus required taking a device offline in the middle of the day with the IT Department. Additionally, school clocks were always out of sync and required someone to set the clocks to the correct time indivdually.

Would Robert Clemmer, Justice School’s IT Administrator, be able to find a mass communication solution that worked with their budget, legacy equipment, and Cisco cloud phone system?

Solution

Justice School started by purchasing a small number of Wahsega speakers and found the speakers to be top quality and reliable. (Note: all Wahsega products are made in the USA.) From there, Clemmer installed the Carina platform, a faster and more reliable solution that actually fit within their limited budget.

With Carina, Justice Schools created a complete multicast solution with Wahsega IP Displays, IP speakers, and PBX. Once the Carina PBX was installed on their existing Cisco cloud phone system, school administrators could use their desk phones for broadcasting and paging. All school clocks are now perfectly in sync and update automatically for Daylight Savings Time.
