Communications Solution for Schools

Bogen’s Quantum Multicom IP is a hardware-based comprehensive communications network that connects administrative areas and staff locations in a single building, multiple building sites throughout a facility, or an entire campus. It is filled with a variety of quality features and functions you can rely on every day for routine communications as well as depend on should an emergency situation occur.


Programming and changes are securely accessed and conveniently configured over the facility’s network, or the internet. Authorized personnel may access Quantum using  a web browser on any computer on campus or off-site.

For new constructions and facilities or campuses that are expanding in size, Quantum uses the LAN connections for programming and sending of audio messages and pages so there is no need for dedicated control cables between buildings or across long distances. Zone paging and All-Call Emergency Mass Notification assures that messages sent from an Administrator location are distributed exactly and only to the desired locations.

Sophisticated emergency features and functions help you, your staff, and students in a crisis situation. Options and access can be customized for each station. System options include direct dial 911, re-routing of emergency calls to a different station type in the same location if busy, choice of four dedicated emergency alarm tones, and system-wide emergency All-Call.

District-wide Communications
Quantum allows entire school districts to be interconnected providing a way to make district-wide All-Call announcements,
All-Call announcements to a single school and point-to-point communications between schools, B.O.E. offices, etc. Up to 99 facilities total can be interconnected into a district.

Upgrade Your Existing Multicom 2000 to a Quantum System
Existing Bogen Multicom 2000 school intercom systems can be easily, and cost effectively upgraded with Quantum capabilities because it is backwards compatible. With this upgrade, the facility enjoys all the Quantum features, such as network- based control and district-wide interconnectivity.

Expansion of Existing Facilities
New building additions can take advantage of the distributed facility architecture of Quantum by locating hardware near the new classrooms to provide shorter wiring runs and then use the facility’s network infrastructure to link the existing and new sectors into one fully integrated school communications system.

Network Phone Connections
Network connected VoIP phones are also available for Quantum. These phones provide a convenient way of installing phones in areas that already have a network drop.

Network Connections to Remote Locations
Quantum hardware located in classroom trailers can easily connect to the main facility by means of the network drops feeding the trailers. If there are no existing drops, a wireless link can be used to make the network connections and carry the communications as well as the data to the remote classrooms

Quantum Commander
Quantum Commander is the web server-based configuration and control application for the Quantum system. The application is accessed through a browser so no special software is needed, allowing access from any computer. Functions relating to manual setup of tones, prerecorded messages, external equipment operation and schedule selection are easily accessed by authorized personnel through an intuitive user interface. Quantum can also allow equipment maintenance personnel remote access to the system reducing the need and cost of site visits.

Student Phones
Telephones can be designated as Student Phones. These phones have unique limitations, such as toll restrictions, length of
use and number of calls to the same number within a certain time period. This phone service is designed to allow students to make critical outgoing calls, but reduce abuse of the privilege.

Security Zone Alerts
Quantum has the ability to monitor and alert administrators of any activity in key areas of the facility, such as a computer lab
or media center. Security Zones can be installed and connected to appropriate sensors, such as motion or door position, so that any activity will be reported back to designated administrators’ display phones.

Zones, Schedules, and Events
Quantum provides a facility with up to 64 separate zones for time tones and paging, plus 32 schedules providing up to a total of 1024 separate tone events. These capacities allow facilities a large degree of scheduling detail that can be used for “school within a school” applications.

Prerecorded Messages
User-supplied audio files can be loaded and triggered for playback from either administrative telephones, Quantum Commander, or an external contact closure. These audio files are played back as an emergency level All-Call announcement.

Call-In Confirmation
The Call Assurance Call-In Switch provides visual confirmation that a call-in request has been logged with the Quantum system. Pushing the SC1’s momentary rocker switch initiates a request for service to the Quantum system. The Quantum system then acknowledges this request by signaling back to the initiating SC1, which then illuminates its LED annunciator. The LED will remain lit until the call-in is serviced. At the end of the call, the LED will extinguish.

VoIP Speakers | S1810QIP (Ceiling) / WBS810QIP (Wall Baffle)

There are times when a VoIP speaker is the absolute best tool for the job – for portable classrooms and other outbuildings and in areas where the user needs convenient, remote volume control. With analog systems, you need to either run buried copper wiring to connect trailer classrooms and other remote buildings – subjecting them to catastrophic system failure due to lightning strikes – or use IP audio encoders/decoders at a significant added expense. With VoIP speakers, you can use above-ground (or buried) fiber optic cable for greater safety, reliability and lower cost.

In areas where easy access to volume control is needed, such as in areas with variable ambient noise and those with hard-of-hearing staff and/or students, VoIP speakers provide convenient access to volume control. Using the Quantum Commander App*, administrators can easily switch among five volume levels. There’s never a need to climb a ladder to change a transformer tap or to install a dedicated manual volume control at additional cost and maintenance.

Bogen VoIP ceiling and wall baffle speakers provide great audio quality and seamless integration into the Quantum ecosystem.

There’s no need for external amplifiers, traditional intercom wiring or transformer taps to manually set or adjust. Simply connect them to the Quantum network via Cat5 to a PoE Switch or PoE Injector and they are ready to operate. Both speakers feature an eight-inch full-range driver and a MEMS microphone for superior intelligibility and effective two-way communication. Each speaker contains a four-Watt PoE amplifier with an output level that can be set remotely using Quantum’s software application. Combined with the high efficiency of their drivers, both models can achieve 102dB of clean, clear sound

With the optional analog call switch, the speakers can be configured as one of two Quantum station types: talkback speaker only or talkback speaker with call switch

The WBS810QIP wall baffle talkback speaker features an attractive and cleverly designed enclosure that allows forward-facing electrical box mount, corner mount, tilt-down mount, or 2×2 side-by-side wall mount without the need for additional mounting hardware.

Quantum Multicom IP systems must be upgraded to version 13.1 to support the use of these VoIP speakers.

Secure Call-in Switch | SC1

The Bogen SC1 is a Call Assurance Call-In Switch for use with Quantum Multicom IP systems, providing visual confirmation that a call-in request has been logged with the Quantum system. Pushing the SC1’s momentary rocker switch initiates a request for service to the Quantum system.The Quantum system then acknowledges this request by signaling back to the initiating SC1, which then illuminates its LED annunciator. The LED will remain lit until the call-in is serviced.At the end of the call, the LED will extinguish.The LED will also extinguish if the Quantum system’s call queue containing the station’s call request is cleared, or if the station’s call request is individually cleared by the administrative station without responding.
