All IP & the Digital World



March 10, 2021 12:11 pm

Max Stevens, Key Accounts Manager – M2M at CSL, believes that service providers and manufacturers can work together to overcome the challenges and opportunities that the All IP project presents to the Telecare Sector.

During the ITEC Conference at the end of this month, Headline Sponsors, CSL, will set the scene with All IP and what the transition means for service users and providers. With the impending upgrade of our national telecoms infrastructure, it is paramount that the TECS Sector fully embrace the transition from analogue to digital.

CSL are heavily invested in supporting the upgrade of the TECS Sector from analogue to Mobile IP and are now offering the highest level of data security. CSL’s Private APN and IPSec VPN ecosystem creates a private network for all data sessions between TECS devices and the Monitoring Centre. CSL are providing end-to-end private networks for delivering Social Care Alarm Internet Protocol (SCAIP) over Mobile IP. Their Machine-to-Machine (M2M) SIMs provide both static and portable Dispersed Alarms with the highest level of roaming capabilities to maximise uptime and send an alarm without delay.

Additionally, CSL can provide security and reliability for Warden Call Schemes. Their CSL Router provides a reliable 4G back-up, as well as upgrading any existing broadband service to a private network. This ensures that the Scheme can always communicate securely with the Monitoring Centre. CSL are North Hertfordshire Council’s sole provider of secure connectivity for any traffic sent through their Jontek Answerlink system. The partnership with CSL has supported the Council in their digital switchover from older analogue connections to the new Mobile IP connectivity. Consequently, they have been able to embrace the change and take advantage of the benefits that enable them to provide a better service to vulnerable people.

After outlining how the existing digital solutions work within their presentation during the ITEC Conference, Max will expand on the benefits of digital when compared with analogue. Some of these benefits include the faster speed at which calls can be connected to a Monitoring Centre, the ability to upgrade a unit remotely, as well as the flexibility that ‘over the air’ upgrades will bring with a digital service.

The presentation will finish with a look to the future and the exciting and transformative opportunities switching to digital presents us.

CSL be presenting at the ITEC conference March 24 at 14:30 – 15:30, during Parallel Session 3 in the Breakout Theatre. They will also be holding a session in Room 2 within the Networking Hub on Thursday 25th between 11:45 – 12:15.
