In today’s complex world educational facilities need to provide clear and concise announcements for several different situations to all areas of a campus, group of campuses or an entire school district.

This is essential for the safety of school staff, students, and parents.  Many of these announcements should be pre-program as sequences, which can be recalled at a moment’s notice.  Lock downs, Evacuations, Fire Drills, Shelter in place, Class Change, Earthquake, Weather alerts, are just a few situations where a preprogrammed notification can help ensure the safety of people at the facility. The response should be quick and easy for administrators to implement. When seconds matter – appropriate, immediate notifications can make the difference and save lives.

The Rauland Telecenter U (TCU) system is the leading critical communication system on the market.  It is an easy to use, flexible communications network for your school and the entire district. The system is based upon the latest Voice over IP technology (VoIP) that is integrated into your existing data network for a pure IP solution.  Alternatively, in many cases, it can be implemented using your existing intercom wiring and room devices.  The TCU can also be implemented as a hybrid network using a combination of existing intercom infrastructure and VoIP technology. This system was designed specifically for educational facilities by Rauland, the leader in K-12 critical communication technology.

The Rauland TCU empowers regular office staff to easily handle emergency notifications, everyday Bell scheduling, Two way communications, Paging, Visual messaging, and clock displays.
