TIM Alerting provides the ability to trigger an evacuation alarm from any Cisco phone or Jabber within a TIM group or IP subnet. This can trigger precise evacuations.

TIM Alerting allows to trigger an evacuation alarm from any phone or jabber within a TIM group or IP subnet. The order criterion can be e.g. locations, buildings or floors. The alarm can be triggered on the phones by a text message, attention sound or announcement. Any calls that take place at this time are overlapped. Only text messages are displayed in Jabber. The exact distinction of which phones/jabber are to be alerted enables precise notification and evacuation of groups. Collateral damage and outbreak of panic are thus reduced to a minimum. The displayed text message can contain further information e.g. of the meeting point. Furthermore, any number of evacuation groups can be defined. The silent alarm, which is also possible, is an alerting possibility in all imaginable threat situations. It is triggered by an XML service. This service is used to establish a multicast connection with a previously defined group of phones (target devices) at the touch of a button on the Cisco IP phone (source device). The target devices show a message on the display that can be defined as desired. The service activates the loudspeaker on the target device and plays back live what is spoken close to the source device. It is suitable for all environments with potential threats from direct party traffic (e.g. offices, institutes, insurance companies, citizens' offices, banks). This ensures that adequate action can be taken in an emergency situation at any time. This function can also be used for announcements to a defined group of telephones and can alternatively be triggered via an Actigy. Licensing is based on the number of objects in the alarm groups (no multiple counting).
