Transportation Solutions

To offer efficient, comfortable, safe and secure passenger journeys is the goal of any Transportation provider. Zenitel’s native IP, intelligent, unified PA and Intercoms solutions enable you to enhance the safety of both passengers and staff by ensuring that they can hear, be heard, and be understood with every message or call.

Alongside the scalability and installation benefits of IP systems Intelligent features – such as voice activity detection – and easy integration with other security subsystems; like CCTV, allow for a more holistic approach to safety and security. Even in highly regulated transport environments.

Distributed PA Assets with Centralized or Route-Based Servers.

  • IP system architecture allows for the control equipment to be centralized at a main Operational Control Center, with Zenitel’s IP amplifiers and remote call panels installed at each stop along a Train or Tram route reporting directly to the servers over the Data Network.
  • Redundancy and Local survivability is designed in. Control equipment can be installed at secondary control center, or even at tertiary sites such as local stations and terminus level. Zenitel’s IP amplifiers offer up to 6+1 redundancy when paired with a local Exigo controller.
  • Existing server assets can be leveraged by the virtualization of Zenitel’s control servers onto any suitable existing hardware.

Control Room Workstations and Public Address (PA) Panels

  • Zenitel can offer GUI-based operator panels to allow quick and easy call routing.
  • Desktop stations and PC client, so the operator can answer and forward calls.
  • Zenitel Mobile app, so calls can be handled even if the reception is unattended.
  • Wired IP panels can be used to make live and pre-configured PA calls if one an Integrated Workstation or main PAS workstations fail.

Visitor Management at Car-Park Entrances, Ticket Barriers, & Secure Gates

  • Turbine IP intercom stations placed at car-park barriers and ticket barriers to welcome, identify, and let people in.
  • Vandal, water and dust resistant intercom stations that can be placed anywhere without worrying about wear and tear.
  • Where there are secure or automatic doors; for instance in progression through airport customs areas, Turbine stations can be used to call for aid in the event of a door malfunction or similar problem. 
  • Built-in tamper-proof relays to open doors and gates.

Seamless Integrations with Leading Building Security Systems

Direct integrations with leading building security platforms ensures:

  • Improved security, as Zenitel’s solutions provide audio in addition to CCTV.
  • Simple use of the system, as operators handle everything from the same dashboard.
  • Easier administration and system management, with lower cost of ownership.
  • Voice activity detection on Zenitel’s Intercom outstations can trigger a local CCTV camera to visually monitor the situation.
  • Passive listen Features can be configured for Turbine stations allowing constant audio monitoring of  the local area.
  • Integration with 3rd-Party recording services via SIP-Rec protocol can allow all calls to be stored for playback in the event of a security incident.

Public Address for General Information and Emergencies

  • Unified PA and Intercom system allowing one for all audio call cases.
  • IP amplifiers can be distributed in different areas across the Terminal. 
  • Alongside traditional PA equipment Turbine stations have built-in powerful speakers, which means they can act as PA in smaller areas.
  • IP speakers for easy and cost-effective coverage of micro-zones such as toilet areas, small platforms, or emergency shelters. 
  • Turbine kits can be used as a cost effective way to integrate legacy analog amplifiers into Zenitel’s IP system.
  • Market-leading Automatic Volume Control on board each amplifier captures data directly from Zenitel’s stand-alone sensors, or as a secondary function of the Turbine help points. 
  • Zenitel’s amplifiers and ancillary devices can be configured in proprietary modes, or open-protocol (SIP) mode allowing integration with existing SIP equipment, such as 3rd-Party PAS and system management servers.

Information and Emergency Help Points, Terminal-Wide

  • Small footprint stations made for indoor installation.
  • Open Duplex communication to allow clear conversation flow between passengers and staff.
  • Market-leading audio DSP and noise cancelling to automatically optimize input and output gains even in busy, high noise environments.
  • Stations can be configured in either proprietary ICX-AlphaCom modes, or in SIP mode ready for use with 3rd-party IPBX.
  • Stations can be configured to allow enhanced PA and security features when not in an active call, such as noise sensing, passive listening, and voice activity detection.
