Educating students comes with responsibilities that extend well beyond reading, writing, and arithmetic. Parents, teachers, administrators, and students expect education to take place in a safe and secure learning environment.

When schools are struck by natural disasters, bad weather, or manmade tragedies, it’s critical that lines of communication remain open between educators, parents, and students. Clear communications lead to actions and initiate responses when students and parents are alerted to upcoming exams, low lunch account balances, fire alarms, or pending report cards. To achieve this level of communication, educators are turning to Olympus by Netsync.

Olympus integrates schools’ legacy security platform, video surveillance cameras, and access control systems with collaboration and unified communications tools into a hybrid-cloud architecture. That’s peace of mind for students, educators, and parents.

Netsync developed Olympus by first conducting in-depth research with educators and community leaders to learn the scope of the challenge. Netsync then designed a cohesive network to link disparate systems together and selected solutions from Cisco and Singlewire Software to complete a specialized platform that ensures technology works together and automates workflows. Olympus integrated Cisco Unified Communications (UC) with Singlewire InformaCast, combining the industry’s best collaboration and VoIP solution with the leading mass emergency notification system.

And when those components work in concert with surveillance cameras, gunshot detection, access control systems, and automation, you have a solution that students, educators, and parents have been expecting.
