Paging and ceiling broadcast devices are essential to a multitude of environments. With a large gap left by older (often analogue) technologies going end of life, Grandstream’s GSC range is filling this hole. The GSC range enables easy 1 or 2-way handsfree communication which is great for loud environments requiring clear audio announcements. While paging has modernised away from older analogue horn systems, they are still an essential device for a wide range of industry verticals.


Grandstream’s paging speaker range is a set of SIP enabled paging speakers that can connect to modern day PBX systems such as 3CX. They support PoE, WiFi and Bluetooth for easy deployment, without needing expensive wiring. They also feature both alert and multicast-based paging and are fully supported by 3CX for easy provisioning. The GSC range also has a 2 pin multipurpose port that can support a call button.


The modern-day office can benefit from the GSC range for important announcements and are a fantastic fit for both single and multifloored office buildings. They can grant a receptionist a simple way of lifting a handset, dialling a paging group and making a broadcast to an entire office with 3CX. They are also fully compliant with the Grandstream GDS door phone series for screening visitors, guests and employees wishing to enter the facility.


The hospitality sector with its bars, restaurants and hotels are a perfect marriage for paging speakers. The dual band 802.11a/c/g/n WiFi allow for simple installations as WiFi is typically deployed with coverage for the entire site. They facilitate a means to make emergency announcements, as well as provide background music for common areas. The GSC devices provide a simple method of hands-free communication for both staff and visitors.


Academic institutions with the likes of schools and universities can take advantage of an easy means for urgent mass announcements. Hallways, cafeterias and libraries can embrace this method of notices around period changes, emergencies and general campus wide transmissions. This can save on expensive paging systems and wiring, by connecting via WiFi. Teachers can link their devices via Bluetooth to the speakers as an effective means of playing audio, and making calls. The range has a multichannel microphone array design with 3 directional mics for a wide voice pickup range, untethering teachers from their desks.


Warehousing environments can be a challenge when it comes to phones. The back of a forklift moves at 3 times the speed of the front of the vehicle, which can result in a regularly smashed phone. The GSC range gives warehouse staff the ability to call out incoming deliveries and communicate with other staff, without having to track down a phone. This is brilliant for pick and packers busy completing orders, with the paging speakers’ clear and loud audio. The ability to tether and broadcast streaming music is an extra bonus.


Medical facilities are an excellent candidate for paging. The ability to give crystal clear announcements is critical for large medical centres. This gives paging for both staff and doctors, and the Grandstream range supports prioritised paging. For example, if a receptionist is making a paging announcement, a doctor can take priority for a more urgent page across the system.
