New Vocera Communications Badge Offers antigerm Coating, Covers

November 5, 2007 - Vocera Communications’ new voice-activated communications Badge, the B2000, has enhanced 802.11b/g wireless support and a new vivid display, and offers a new set of colorful antigerm protective sleeves.

While the colorful sleeves allow departments to distinguish themselves, B2000’s outer surfaces of the Badge and the sleeves have been treated with an antimicrobial agent from BioCote, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungus, and algae.

The Vocera Communications Badge is a wearable, hands-free instant voice communication system. It combines WiFi, voice over IP (VoIP), and speech recognition technologies for rapid communication in a lightweight device that enables the user to communicate with colleagues over a wireless LAN.

System upgrades include an improved wireless radio, which will support WiFi Multimedia (WMM). This means the B2000’s voice packets can be prioritized over an 802.11b or 802.11g wireless network, reportedly boosting Vocera’s speech quality and reducing unclear calls. A high-performance patch antenna extends the reach of the wireless signal, reducing the chances of dropped calls in areas with poor wireless coverage. The design of the new Badge, based on a Linux platform, has also been improved to provide better durability.

Vocera Communications Badge B2000 will be available for general release in the U.S. in December 2007.
