Bogen Announces Release 2.0 of E7000 IP-based, Education-focused Paging and Intercom System
Software-centric system leverages company's Nyquist technology platform
May 14, 2018, Mahwah, NJ – Today, Bogen Communications, Inc., announced the
introduction of version 2.0 of its award-winning education-focused E7000 IP-based paging
and intercom system that debuted at InfoComm 2017. The E7000 leverages Bogen’s Nyquist
software platform that provides users with unparalleled flexibility and scalability.
Version 2.0 adds to the E7000’s original core features, which include its easy to use webbased
graphical user interface; 24/7 accessibility via PCs, tablets, and mobile devices;
virtually unlimited scalability; interoperability with third-party devices; and easy software
upgradability. New 2.0 features include map-based paging and intercom with hierarchical
drill-down views, station monitoring with alerts, analog telephone support via 24-port VoIP
gateways, and text-to-speech functionality for scripted announcements.
A new hardware appliance complements the 2.0 software release. The multi-function NQGA10P
is a PoE powered, plenum rated, 10-Watt VoIP intercom module that enables any
standard analog speaker to be transformed into a VoIP intercom speaker. It includes
support for legacy analog as well as state-of-the-art digital call switches, an AV override
output relay, push-to-talk mic input, and an ambient noise sensing mic input. A forthcoming variant of this incredibly flexible appliance – the NQ-GA10PV– includes an HDMI video
output for future clock and messaging support using off-the-shelf LCD monitors.
“The E7000 IP-based school intercom system we introduced last year has been a big
success. Dealers and end users have been delighted with the system's scalability, ease of use,
web-based accessibility, and design flexibility,” explained Bogen’s product manager Ken
Venuti. “Over the past year, we've been listening to our dealers and end user customers and
used their needs and aspirations to guide our product development efforts. Over the past
several months, we have released several V1.0 maintenance updates to address bugs and
improve system usability. With V2.0 and the new hardware, we addressed several major
feature enhancements that our customers have asked for, and we’ll continue to use their
feedback to guide the E7000 feature roadmap.”
E7000 is sold exclusively through authorized Bogen Education Systems specialist dealers.
E7000 release 2.0 software and the new NQ-GA10P VoIP intercom module are expected to
be available early in the third quarter of 2018.
