Plain old telephone service (POTS) is no longer the most reliable communication path and in many cases, no longer functions at all. Now is a great time to begin transitioning POTS communication to cellular, like elevator phone lines.

WH International Response Center (WHIRC) has partnered with Bongo Technologies, a manufacturer of cellular communicators. All Bongo devices communicate on FirstNet, a prioritized network, that will keep the users safe and connected. Bongo’s P2C (phone to cell) communicator is an easy way to move your equipment off unreliable copper POTS lines and onto FirstNet. Connect the existing line directly into Bongo without needing to reprogram your panel. Some of the Bongo features include:

  • Priority cellular service to communicate with emergency responders.
  • Already embedded, certified, and approved on the FirstNet Network.
  • Emergency cellular voice plan.
  • Authorized FirstNet TMA certified central call center monitoring.
  • Easy to install.

All of Bongo P2C communicators are monitored 24/7 by WHIRC who will quickly respond and properly route the calls. Learn more at or call Ashley Raisanen from WHIRC at 763-477-3122.
