German Center for Forensic Psychiatry Relies on Intelligent Ascom Technology

GOTHENBURG, Sweden --(Business Wire)--

The Ascom Deutschland GmbH was awarded the contract for the implementation of a mobile alarm communications solution based on IP-DECT (News - Alert) in one of the largest forensics centers in Europe. The modern communications and personal emergency signal system meets the highest safety standards.

The use of the Ascom (News - Alert) app servers and individually tailored system architecture provide additional protection to the employees of the Lippstadt center. To this purpose, the flexible, scalable system is adapted to the conditions step-by-step and can simultaneously manage up to 1,000 terminal devices following a possible planned final expansion. Reliable localization and rapid alarm in serious cases is always assured.

The Westphalia-Lippe regional Association (LWL) was already the first customer in Germany to rely on the at-that-time new IP-DECT system from Ascom at its Benninghausen location in 2006. The good experiences with the system now logically led to equipping the ZFP location at Eickelborn with the most upto-date technology. At the same time, the solution encompasses the connection of the previously separately functioning alarm systems in the two facilities.

Jörg Gebauer, managing director of Ascom Wireless Solutions DACH states emphatically about the prestige project: "We are proud that one of the largest forensics facilities in Europe has trusted in the proven, highly efficient communications solutions from Ascom. This order strengthens our large market share in the German forensics and psychiatric segments."
