New Wireless Phone Offers Full Vocera Functionality

February 26, 2008 — Vocera Communications Inc. unveiled its new T1000 Vocera Phone at HIMSS this week, a 802.11b/g wireless phone designed to provide the flexibility and form factor some workers desire with the intelligent calling and workflow capabilities offered by the Vocera Voice Badge.

This shareable communicator complements the wireless, wearable Vocera Communications Badge used in more than 400 hospitals worldwide.

The new T1000 Vocera Phone is designed to give mobile workers the instant communication benefits of the Vocera platform on a familiar phone form factor. The device is said to deliver Vocera’s intelligent, one-button communication features and will be compatible with existing Vocera deployments.

Instead of being designated for a specific user, the T1000 Vocera Phone is dynamically assigned when a user logs in for their shift. Each time a user logs into the Vocera System with the T1000 Vocera Phone, a phone number associated with the user’s profile will be assigned to that T1000, allowing each device to be shared across a number of users and shifts. All voicemail and text messages are delivered to the user, not the device.

All features and benefits of the Vocera Communications System are available on the T1000. Operating over a facility’s 802.11b/g wireless network, it is said to seamlessly leverages the capabilities of the Vocera Communications System and features a dedicated Vocera call button, allowing users to use all of Vocera’s innovative voice command functionalities, including call by name, call by group, and broadcast. In addition, users can dial using the phone keypad. The T1000 Vocera Phone ensures network and device security thanks to a full security suite that includes WPA-2 security protocol. To ensure call clarity and reception, the T1000 supports WiFi Multimedia (WMM), an industry standard for Voice Quality of Service (QoS) that prioritizes voice packets over an 802.11b/g wireless network.

The T1000 Vocera Phone’s outer surfaces incorporate the BioCote antimicrobial agent that inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mold on the surface. The phone will be available to new and existing Vocera customers in the fourth quarter of 2008.
