- Mobilize emergency personnel in fire departments, rescue and emergency services (also in conjunction with external command and control computers
- Initiate targeted evacuation of industrial sites and buildings (e.g. hotels, department stores) in the event of fire and other emergencies
- Simultaneously notify police, hospitals,schools, media etc.
- Exchange information between headquarters and branch offices
- Connect calls to care staff via DECT/WLAN phones (in conjunction with paging systems and callback to patient rooms)
- Conduct emergency calls and locate casualties, also in combination with socalled Patient Monitoring Systems

- Important information can be distributed fast and reliably. Staff are more mobile and no longer have to perform time-consuming,routine tasks where there is a high risk of error.
