Your Attention Please… For The New LGfL VoIP PA Function!

In our ever continuing efforts to produce simple and cost-effective products designed specifically with school requirements in mind, we are delighted to announce the latest feature to complement the London Grid for Learning telephone VoIP service. Schools now have the option to add a PA integration feature to the system.

Authorised staff members will be able to call a dedicated phone number from their desk phone, which then connects through to the school PA system allowing for either live audio (spoken from the user’s own handset), or pre-recorded audio files such as spoken announcements or music, to be output.

Just plug in a small unobtrusive server than can be installed next to a PA system or other amplifier. The server outputs a mono analogue audio signal on a 3.5mm jack, so will typically integrate with any such school PA or audio system with an appropriate audio input.

The feature is easily managed via a dedicated webpage that affords schools the ability to configure and control their own settings, once plugged in you are ready to make or play announcements.

Full installation can be provided by Atomwide along with ongoing support.

The VoIP PA feature offers a smart, flexible and convenient alternative to how announcements are made at school, and is available for all LGfL VoIP schools as a highly competitive optional extra.

Further information and pricing on the VoIP PA Function please speak to one of our technical professionals by emailing or calling 01689 814700

Thank you for your time.

Atomwide offers a Fax to Email service

The Fax to Email Service allows establishments to send and receive faxes electronically without the need for an extra phone line or a physical fax machine. This secure service makes faxing convenient and simple to use and set up. Set-up charges apply, although schools already using the LGfL 2.0 IP Telephony system will not be charged any set-up fees to enable faxing.

  • Send faxes online via a secure management website
  • No need for an extra line or a fax machine
  • Save money on paper, toner and maintenance costs
  • Receive faxes conveniently by email
  • Access a full history of all faxes sent and received
  • Phonebook functionality for private and establishment-wide numbers
  • “Click-to-fax” integration with online phonebook

To enable this service for any establishment, there is a one-off set-up charge of £50. Annual subscription is priced at £200 plus the cost of calls, which are invoiced quarterly.

Establishments already using LGfL 2.0 IP Telephony will have no set-up fee and will be offered a reduced annual subscription charge of £100. Each subscription is allocated one fax number.

To purchase the service or for further information please email our sales team. All costs are quoted excluding VAT.

VoIP Telephony demonstrations are now available

For schools on the LGfL 2.0 network, a Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony service is available at a highly competitive price. The service is deployed through the use of an LGfL-licensed Cisco Unified Communications Server (formerly Call Manager system) so that schools wishing to make use of the service need only purchase the required number of Cisco IP handsets and select a service level needed by each handset. These can be obtained through LGfL/Atomwide.

The service has been available for several months and discounts of up to 20% on the originally published monthly subscription rates have recently been secured. Any schools investigating the possibility of a new phone system are welcome to visit Atomwide’s offices to see a fully configured suite of phones and discuss the school’s unique requirements to establish which phones and service levels may be needed.

To arrange a visit and demonstration please contact Atomwide on 01689 814700 or email
