Wahsega Labs Exhibiting at ISTE 2017 Conference in San Antonio, Texas Next Week

Conference beginning June 25th in San Antonio, TX


ATLANTA, GA (June 22, 2017)Wahsega Labs will be exhibiting at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference beginning June 25th in San Antonio, TX.

Wahsega Labs will be located in booth number 547, in Exhibit Hall 2 of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. ISTE 2017 is the destination for educator-tested strategies and extraordinary resources for transforming learning and teaching. ISTE also touts thousands of ways to personalize your learning and create a professional development path that covers what’s important to you.

Wahsega Labs will be demonstrating many of their K-12 IP paging products and will focus on two recent additions to their lineup: Diet IP PBX and the SIP Alerter. The theme this year is integration, cost savings and the strategies Education IT Professionals can use to get the most out of their budgets.

Also in focus are the popular Wahsega 2x2 Ceiling Speakers. Installation costs can be one of the biggest hurdles that education IT pros face when working with tight budgets and Wahsega's revolutionary design can cut those costs significantly while also reducing IT equipment by 50%. This is achieved by only requiring one PoE cable run that can power speakers in two different classrooms.

Wahsega Labs welcomes everyone to stop by booth number 547 for a demonstration on how to lower installation and equipment costs while enjoying a higher quality IP paging system that is made in the USA.

IP PBX Unified System for Paging and Access Control


ATLANTA, GA (April 4, 2017) – Wahsega Labs, Inc. (Wahsega), the designer and manufacturer of the highest quality VoIP endpoints in the market, launched its Diet PBX today.

The Wahsega Diet PBX is an advanced paging IP PBX hardware appliance that allows Wahsega customers to easily create a full VoIP communication system with Wahsega’s intercoms, paging adapters, IP phones and IP ceiling speakers as well as with any third-party SIP compliant devices. The Diet PBX hardware appliance targets paging and access control intercom deployments in the education, correctional, healthcare, manufacturing, multi-tenant office and hospitality markets. It is a key component when combining all of Wahsega's VoIP endpoints to form a complete solution for paging and access control applications.

The Wahsega Diet PBX is powered via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE 802.3af) and supports up to 256 registered SIP devices with 16 concurrent local calls. The USA-manufactured internal circuitry has a rugged aluminum housing with three standard 35mm DIN Rail (top-hat) slots for easy mounting in any orientation on bottom or side and can withstand industrial operating temperatures from −40°C to +85°C. The Diet PBX also comes with a built-in DHCP server to enable customers to deploy full VoIP communication systems on isolated LANs with no router.

Creating and configuring a VoIP communication system using the Wahsega Diet PBX is incredibly simple through the use of the included Web interface. The built-in DHCP server webpage displays all of the devices that have received an IP address from the Diet PBX with clickable links to open each device's Web interface. IP paging is available by dialing a SIP extension from any IP phone and rebroadcasting the audio via multicast. Background music is supported through a line-in audio jack. The Diet PBX has the lowest power consumption of any IP PBX in the market while also employing an extensive fault tolerance monitoring/management system to ensure maximum device uptime.

Ruggedized Outdoor IP Intercom Bests the Competition


ATLANTA, GA (February 27, 2017) – In a story published recently on their corporate blog, Wahsega Labs elaborated on features of their best-selling product, the Wahsega Ruggedized Outdoor IP Intercom.

The company stated that they set out to engineer a product that truly fit the description "ruggedized". When their competition was researched, it was found that although there were many products that described themselves as more durable than regular products, the materials used to build them didn't live up to expectations. Often, only superficial parts of the device's structure were reinforced. That left significant weaknesses in structure that could compromise reliability and security.

As a consequence, Wahsega Labs chose materials that were considerably more robust than the competition's. In addition to true sheet steel casings, Wahsega employed advanced technologies to protect internal components from harm. Each factor was carefully considered and then the hardware designed to meet and beat specifications.

Finally, Wahsega's hallmark easy configuration ensures faster deployment times. To read the full article, visit Wahsega Labs Company Blog area.

Wahsega Labs VoIP and IP Products Made in the USA


ATLANTA, GA (February 24, 2017)Wahsega Labs recently explained in more detail why it made the choice to manufacture in the United States instead of China. Company officials stated that the decision is a pragmatic one designed to benefit their customer base. Wahsega Labs insists that while pride in American ingenuity and productivity played a factor, their firm commitment to their customers and strict quality control requirements were the primary motivation.

Although traditionally US companies have gravitated toward offshoring their manufacturing in China, Wahsega Labs found that they needed much quicker change cycles and higher quality than they could find in Asia. By using strong domestic business relationships fostered over years of experience in the industry, Wahsega created a home-grown manufacturing complex that sources materials, labor and manufacturing efficiency expertise to produce products more cost-effectively than they could by offshoring. Their success reinforces their belief that labor costs are not too high in the US and the benefits far outweigh the risks.

As one official remarked, "You can have your cake and eat it too."

Wahsega Labs' Two-Classroom Solution Saves School District and Integrators' Time and Money in Tampa Bay Area School Renovations

Large school district embraces new, award-winning audio and security technology.


ATLANTA, GA (August 12, 2016) – Wahsega Labs, Inc. (Wahsega), the designer and manufacturer of the highest quality VoIP endpoints in the market, celebrates the first day of school in the Tampa Bay area, where Wahsega's InformaCast-enabled speakers and zone controllers were installed in the extensive renovations of several schools over the summer.

The school district was pleased with the significant cost savings achieved thanks to award-winning Wahsega technology which allows installers to reduce wire runs by half in most instances. This savings plus the ability to seamlessly integrate with Singlewire Software LLC's InformaCast Advanced Notification System made Wahsega's products the perfect solution for the school district's needs.

A revolutionary development in classroom audio and security, Wahsega's Two-Classroom 2x2 Ceiling Speaker with InformaCast and SIP provides multiple safety features at a high performance and low cost. A two-way intercom with the ability to broadcast emergency alerts and control door locks from InformaCast, just one Power-over-Ethernet run is needed to support Wahsega speakers in two separate classrooms. This helped installers conserve both equipment and labor costs on the projects while also reducing the amount of equipment for the school district's IT department to manage.

The Wahsega speaker's ability to integrate with standard panic buttons both enhances security and reduces false alarm calls thanks to its advanced button functionality. Easily integrated with schools' Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CallManager) phone system, the speakers allow classroom occupants to communicate with a front office or quickly initiate a two-way emergency call if needed.

With InformaCast and SIP dual registration, integrated microphone, door lock relays for classroom safety, sound reinforcement, and advanced panic button functionality, the Two-Classroom Wahsega 2x2 Ceiling Speaker with InformaCast and SIP provided multiple safety and audio features in a single-product solution.

Also included in the Tampa Bay area school district projects, the Wahsega IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast and SIP boasts two line-level outputs which can operate independently, broadcasting alerts and announcements to amplifiers in two different audio zones. Each output can play up to three simultaneous InformaCast audio broadcasts, allowing emergency alert messages to play out over music streams or school announcements.

Configuration of the Wahsega products in each school was incredibly simple thanks to the InformaCast server software provided by Singlewire. Once the Wahsega devices were connected to the local network, the InformaCast server automatically recognized and registered them, enabling immediate access for broadcasts and announcements. In addition, installers were able to configure and customize the Wahsega products through their own included Web interface.

With simple setup, lowered equipment and labor costs, and innovative safety features, Wahsega's InformaCast-enabled products provided the ideal solution for this Tampa Bay area school district. Learn more about Wahsega's award-winning InformaCast solutions for K-12 schools at www.wahsega.com.

Wahsega Labs Debuts Latest IP Speakers at the 2016 BrainStorm Conference

Information about BrainStorm can be found at www.brainstormk20.com


ATLANTA, GA (March 4, 2016) – Wahsega Labs, Inc. (Wahsega), the designer and manufacturer of the highest quality VoIP endpoints in the market, debuted the Wahsega IP 2x2 Ceiling Speaker with InformaCast and SIP at the BrainStorm Conference in Wisconsin earlier this week.

A gathering of over 1,100 IT professionals in the K-12 industry, the BrainStorm Conference connects Ed Tech peers and vendors from around the country. Wahsega was pleased to introduce these education technology professionals to the latest in a line of smart IP and InformaCast speakers. The newest speaker, which debuted at the Wahsega booth, is a 2x2 ceiling speaker which simultaneously supports both InformaCast and SIP communication protocols. With the Wahsega engineering team’s technological advancements on this 2x2 ceiling speaker, K-12 customers can cut their per-classroom total installation costs by almost half while utilizing the most advanced smart IP speaker on the market today.

The next Wahsega product shown at the BrainStorm Conference was the IP Audio Encoder/Decoder, which sends high quality audio over networks with very low latency for a fluid and enjoyable experience. To demonstrate the Encoder, Wahsega fed a TV source into the device, which then sent the signal over the network to a mobile application that played the audio in real-time on a user’s phone. This type of application is perfect for deployments in large school classrooms and auditoriums where students in the room cannot hear the TV audio. With the Wahsega IP Audio Encoder/Decoder, each student can clearly hear the audio feed through a simple application on his or her mobile device or smart phone. This solution is also used in assisted listening deployments, avoiding the need for expensive proprietary transmitters that require special RF receivers.

William Schmidt, VP of Business Development for Wahsega, was at the conference and said, “I frequently hear from school professionals about poor sounding bells and PA systems or about expensive systems requiring proprietary hardware and software. Wahsega Labs changes the game by using open SIP standards and developing all endpoints with the capability of providing two independent, bi-directional channels of audio—cutting the per-classroom total installation cost nearly in half. The overwhelming positive reception from our customers at BrainStorm and around the country shows a need in the market for our latest next gen IP ceiling speaker solution.”

Wahsega Labs Launches Line of 2-way IP Intercoms with InformaCast and SIP

Indoor and vandal resistant outdoor models available now at www.wahsega.com


ATLANTA, GA (November 9, 2015) – Wahsega Labs, Inc. (Wahsega), the designer and manufacturer of the highest quality VoIP endpoints in the market, launched its line of IP Intercoms with InformaCast and SIP today.

The Wahsega line of IP Intercoms with InformaCast and SIP consists of IP speakers that seamlessly integrate with Singlewire Software LLC’s InformaCast Advanced Notification System.

With support for InformaCast’s high-quality audio (44.1kHz), broadcasts are loud and crystal clear.

In addition to InformaCast support, each of the new Wahsega 2-way IP Intercoms with InformaCast can also register with a SIP PBX such as the Cisco CallManager, giving users the ability to make and receive SIP phone calls. This is a perfect solution for K-12 schools with the Cisco CallManager and InformaCast both installed on site, and it allows each Wahsega IP Intercom to act as a panic button when the main button is pushed. The panic button initiates a 2-way, full-duplex call to the desired recipient configured within the Cisco CallManager and the intercom.

Configuration of all Wahsega 2-way IP Intercoms with InformaCast and SIP is incredibly simple thanks to the InformaCast server software provided by Singlewire. Once the Wahsega intercoms are connected to the local network where the InformaCast server resides, they will automatically be recognized and registered. In addition, the IP Intercoms may also be configured for SIP through an included Web interface, accessible via any browser on any device in the local network.

ATLANTA, GA (June 15, 2015) – Wahsega Labs (Wahsega), the designer and manufacturer of the highest quality VoIP endpoints in the market, launched its IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast today.

The Wahsega IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast is an IP endpoint which seamlessly integrates with Singlewire Software LLC’s InformaCast Advanced Notification System.

The Wahsega IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast is powered via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE 802.3af) and supports live, pre-recorded or ad hoc broadcasts of high-quality (44.1kHz) and low-quality (8kHz) InformaCast audio.

Configuration of the Wahsega IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast is incredibly simple thanks to the InformaCast server software provided by Singlewire. Once integrators and installers connect the Wahsega device to the local network where the InformaCast server resides, it will automatically be recognized and registered. In addition, the IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast may also be configured through an included Web interface, accessible via any browser on any device in the local network.

The Wahsega IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast may be purchased directly from Wahsega at www.wahsega.com.
