WAVES Mass Notification

Protect, alert and inform, your most critical resources, your people, with Eaton's end-to-end IP communications network for site-wide and multi-site mass notification.


Eaton features a new line of integrated, IP network-based Mass Notification Systems (MNS).  WAVES, part of the ALERiTY platform, offers a one-click solution that can launch critical messages simultaneously across in-building and wide-area MNS. The advanced IP technology provides unmatched reliability, ease-of-use, and interoperability for organizations seeking the utmost in emergency communications.

Supporting the highest standards of network security, the latest ALERiTY solution features both wired and wireless IP solutions.  The WAVES mass notification network is comprised of a collection of secure, robust and reliable Ethernet communication devices, IP Communicators (IPC).  This enterprise system solution allows organizations to leverage their Local Area Network (LAN) or utilize the private network of the IPC to send audible, visual and data messages via a Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) multicast stream. Through Ethernet radios, a wireless solution is also available for agnostic communications.
