Synway’s Call Recording Product Family Has been Used in Emergency Services in France and Other European Countries


Caen is a commune in northwestern France. It is the prefecture of the Calvados department. Caen fire brigade(also known as a fire and rescue service or simply fire service) is a public  organization that provides predominantly emergency firefighting and rescue services for a Caen area.


In the sensitive world of fire safety, the ability to record calls made to Caen Fire Brigade Call Center was a necessity for emergency fire call. In the past few decades, the Caen Fire Brigade used its recording solution provided by local operator. However, the Caen Fire Brigade’s decided to implement a migration of its telephony infrastructure to expand its system.

One issue was the need to find a solution that could assure the quality of voice in high-density call traffic and maintain 24*7*365 recording monitoring ability in extreme environment. Moreover, implementing and expanding a recording system have to feature better cost effectiveness and high interoperability. It seemed very hard to find a call recording system with high balance between interoperability, quality and economy.



Via France-based system integrator, Caen Fire Brigade decided to adopt Synway’s call recording family products.
