Intelligible Voice MNS Leader, ATI Systems, Releases New Intelligent Control Gateway (ICG) Product


Acoustic Technology, Inc. (ATI Systems), a world leader in providing intelligible voice for Mass Notification Systems (MNS) and Emergency Communication Systems (ECS), is proud to announce the release of its new product the Intelligent Control Gateway (ICG). The ICG provides new features and capabilities which enhance the entire ATI product line of voice notification systems.

The ICG replaces the existing Advanced Communication Board (ACB) to provide more processing power, additional interfaces, and enhanced protocol support. It easily integrates into ATI’s proven High Power Speaker Station (HPSS), Indoor Speaker Unit (ISU) and other ATI Systems interface units, such as the fire alarm and PA interface Remote Terminal Units (RTU).

One of the key features of the ICG is an ultrafast CPU with increased memory. It includes the support for IPv6 and the enhanced security over IP by integrating SSL/TLS security standards including RSA, 3DES, AES, ARC4, SHA1, SHA2, MD2, MD4 and MD5. Another key feature is added network and communication ports including Ethernet, USB, CANbus, RS232, RS485, analog radio and telephone line.

Extremely reliable remote diagnostics are available with the ICG including support for SNMP traps and a secure web-based interface using the HTTPS protocol to make configuration and diagnostic changes. The ICG minimizes the electrical load for longer run times during power outages.

“The major improvements available in this new ICG combined with ATI Systems’ proven ability to use multiple diverse communication paths in parallel provides almost unlimited flexibility to meet the most robust customer requirements.”, Antonio Cracchiolo, VP of Operations, said.
