Protecting students and staff so learning can flourish

Schools have a legal duty to ensure, as far as is reasonably possible, the health, safety and welfare of all students and staff. They are sensitive places and may be soft targets for terrorist attacks, making the security of pupils and staff paramount.

Vertex Standard understands your communication challenges and offers a range of two-way radios that help school administrators and security personnel protect your students and school.
Communication Challenges
Campus Size
Read more
The size of a campus not only affects the class size, amenities but also the choice of communication devices to deploy to ensure superior and reliable one-to-one or one-to-many communications when necessary.
Privacy/ Group Communication
Read more
A common desire amongst analog radio users is to control who receives a message and avoid broadcasting messages to a wide group of listeners to avoid miscommunication. Digital two-way radio technology not only faciliates individual and group communication but also addresses problem of overcrowded frequencies that can impact call quality and reliability, putting safety and productivity at risk.
Noise Level
Read more
A school environment is constantly filled with different types of noise - from environment to physical. To cut through the hustle and bustle, the communication network must be capable of cancelling out unnecessary noise for effective communication during times of need.
Safety and Emergency Response
Read more
Campus terror attacks are becoming more common. The ability to respond promptly to security alerts, emergencies such natural diaster, fire and accidents, as well as operational demands is critical.
Voluminous School Population
Read more
A school population is made up of both students and staff and may range from small (under 5,000 population) to huge (more than 15,000 in population). In times of emergency or during a school event such as a sports meet, the ability to transmit messages fast and reliably, and coordinate all staff quickly is key to safeguarding everyone's interest and enhancing efficiency in mobilising the entire school population.

The number of terrorist attacks against soft target like schools and universities have soared over the decade. The University of Maryland's Global Terrorism Database, which lists more than 125,000 terrorist attacks around the world since 1970, has recorded a sharp uptick in terror attacks on schools since 2004, when a massacre at a school in Beslan in southern Russia claimed the lives of 334 people, 186 children among them. 1

How Vertex Standard Radios Can Help

More Security, Less Disruptions

Schools, colleges and universities are sensitive places where the security of pupils and staff is paramount. Accidents, assaults, emergencies including fire and flooding, even the actions of intruders, make those working in educational establishments potentially vulnerable.

Being able to quickly identify incidents, report threats and take immediate action keeps people safe, disruptions down and reputations intact.

The secret is to connect staff across the campus with reliable voice and text communications, whether they’re working in the classroom, office or out in the grounds. With two-way radios, teachers and receptionists can track down missing students, caretakers can report electrical faults before they become serious and groundsmen spot suspicious activity. A well connected establishment preserves learning and keeps costs down – an essential combination.
