WAVES IP Communicators

The WAVES Mass Notification System (MNS), part of the ALERiTY integrated platform, is comprised of a collection of secure, robust and reliable Ethernet communication devices, IP Communicators (IPC). 

Wired directly to a LAN or through its own private network, the IPC sends audible, visual and data messages via an RTP multicast stream. It provides wired connections between IPCs and/or wirelessly through Eaton approved radios (RADIO-500G and RADIO-900M).
