The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Staten Island
Railway selected Emcom Systems’ voice over Internet protocol-based (VoIP) Em
Vista Central solution, with its IP6000 hands-free phones, to improve
communications throughout the rail system.
Twenty-two hands-free, ADA compliant phones will be installed at each stop and communicate with the
EmVista Central system at St. George via an IP network, enabling operators to
initiate, receive and monitor calls for any type of situation.
The IP6000 phones incorporate Digital Signal Processing
technology that can correct noise or echoing. When a call button is pressed, EmVista Central
alerts video control and provides an IP audio feed to archive the audio/video
The system also provides comprehensive drag-and-drop
features that can allow agents to answer quickly, place outgoing calls to any
phone or even connect calls to other resources such as emergency responders.
Future expansions can provide public address and radio connection
The MTA Staten Island Railway carries more than 15,000 passengers each day.
