Deploying the GSC3510
The GSC3510 SIP intercom offers two primary benefits to networks that it is deployed into, added security and intercom-paging capabilities. Schools, commercial spaces, and hospitals are great examples where the paging features of the device can allow for quick and straight-forward mass announcements. Desktop endpoints can be configured to quickly page through all GSC intercoms. Example use-cases for this is to request additional cashiers in a commercial business, page a specific doctor in a healthcare deployment, or make announcements throughout event spaces. The ability for the device to work as a 2-way intercom allows for quick conversations when paging/calling specific GSC units within a communications network. For example, calling a classroom to request a student to be sent to a main-office. Lastly, Grandstream’s proprietary Push-to-Talk capable devices can be configured to directly PTT through a specific or series of GSC3510 devices.
The GSC3510 also comes equipped with a 2-pin multi-purpose input that supports multitudes of peripherals. The most commonly used peripheral is a call-button or panic-button that would enable the GSC3510 to initiate a call to a predetermined endpoint, such as a security office phone or reception phone. When used with a call-button peripheral, the GSC can function as a security device to protect both in-network users and out-of-network users. Access through a facility can be controlled through an individual initiating a call through the GSC3510, or a panic-button can connect a user with security staff in the case of an emergency. Lastly, when deployed in senior-care or healthcare industries, the GSC3510 can provide an easy way for mobility-impaired users to connect with nursing and healthcare staff.
A SIP intercom isn’t always a necessary part of a unified communications deployment. However, in situations that they are needed they are almost always an integral part of the solution. The GSC3510 has an affordable price-point and a focus on powerful features. Two way audio, large pick-up distance, advanced echo cancellation and beamforming array, and integrated WiFi for light-infrastructure deployments sets this device above from the competition.
