Intercom Communications

Intercoms are a convenient way for teachers and staff to communicate with one another in a school setting. Intercoms allow for quick and easy communication between one or more persons at a time. They can be used in the event of an emergency where other methods of communication could fail. Intercom systems typically have the ability to call into all areas so administrators can talk to the entire school at once, whether for morning announcements or for an emergency. Thompson Engineering can design and install a Rauland intercom system designed to meet the needs of your school site or provide you with a district wide solution.



VoIP

VoIP (Voice over IP) and IP (Internet Protocol) telephony are becoming increasingly popular with large corporations and consumers alike. For many people, IP is more than just a way to transport data; it's also a tool that simplifies and streamlines a wide range of business applications. Telephony is the most obvious example. VoIP is also the foundation for more advanced unified communications applications, including Web and video conferencing that can transform the way you do business.
