BEAVERTON, OR--Biamp Systems announced Vocia has earned the EN 54-16 accreditation, a qualification that brings the Vocia system recognition of adhering to one of the most stringent voice evacuation and fire alarm standards in the world. Vocia is a critical paging and mass notification system that delivers the scalability, flexibility and intelligibility required to meet the global life safety standards and requirements. Vocia was built from the ground up to deliver a networked, decentralized, no-single point of failure voice evacuation. This standard is aimed specifically at ensuring that voice alarm control and indicating equipment provides the best possible communication within public facilities.

“When Biamp considered entering the life safety market, we knew compliance with the European Union’s life safety codes would be necessary to meet the requirements of buildings of the future,” said Graeme Harrison, vice president of International sales for Biamp Systems. “Coupled with our internal research, as well as today’s market demand for Vocia, we knew Vocia would be flexible enough to fit any project requirements. Vocia’s decentralized, networked approach to voice evacuation makes it the solution for university campuses, transportation facilities and other venues, today and tomorrow.”

The new Control Interface (CI-1) device helped pave the way for Vocia earning the EN 54-16 voice evacuation safety standard approval. The CI-1 works with the Life Safety Interface (LSI-16), an emergency interface between the Vocia critical paging system and emergency and fire alarm systems.
