This application makes it possible to broadcast alerts using an IP phone which was earlier restricted to computers in corporate environment. If a system administrator, manager or other member of an organisation wishes to send a message to each person in a department, they can use "Broadcast Alert". The application allows a single message along with a priority to be sent to a number of registered IP phones. This application can be extended to include workgroups and store messages for later retrieval.

  • An IP phone can be registered with the Broadcast Alert application either by starting the application on the phone itself or by entering the details manually on the server.
  • A system administrator then enters the message and the priority via the application’s web portal.
  • When the message is submitted, each registered phone is pushed, informing it to retrieve the message from the server.
  • The message is then displayed on the IP phone's APM/DSM with a corresponding sound.
