Tata Motors deploys 2N® NetSpeaker together with 3CX and Fanvil IP Phones

We encounter IP systems for audio distribution every day in many places, without even realising the fact. Every time we enter a department store or bank, when waiting for a train or travelling by metro, we can hear music, advertising messages and information about train arrivals and departures played over various audio systems. You can see all the places 2N IP audio systems can be used in the descriptions of the following verticals.

What was the main idea of using Public Address System?

Tata Motors were looking for an IP public address system with possibility to deliver audio content to various destinations on vehicle assembly line. The system should have been able to connect to PBX with 3rd party software. Also, employees should be able to set priorities of what will be streamed based on the importance of the announcements.

Solution benefits:

  • Possibility to have public announcement in selected zones or all areas at once
  • 3rd Party integration via Sound Card input enables streaming customized audio from local system
  • Music streamed and played in selected areas for recreation purposes
  • Playlists creation and its streaming according to required schedule
  • Using phone for internal communication and announcements over the PA system

Why did the customer choose 2N® NetSpeaker system?

Having reviewed several IP solutions and some disappointing demonstrations that failed to work with our system, we were made aware of 2N via 3CX and Fanvil Partner Ank Technologies Pvt Ltd and they swiftly arranged a demonstration at our offices in forms of a mini version of our requirements. Impressively the system was integrated and working with the IP Phone System and demonstrated to representatives from various Tata Motors departments who were all impressed at the flexibility and ease of use of the system.
