About the Product¶
Sennheiser MobileConnect is an Assistive Listening solution. The system uses WiFi to stream live audio in superior quality to any mobile device. Following the Bring-Your-Own-Device concept, it is an easy-to-use and intuitive Assistive Listening system. As no additional receivers are needed, costs and maintenance effort for operators are kept at a minimum.
The MobileConnect system works in the following way: the MobileConnect Station is integrated into the existing campus network and distributes the audio content via WiFi to the MobileConnect App on the user’s personal smartphone. The MobileConnect system can be configured and administered in two modes of integration - Manager and Standalone Mode. Choose the mode more suitable for your premises.
Choosing Mode of Integration¶
In Manager Mode all MobileConnect Stations in the network can be conveniently administered and managed remotely by the MobileConnect Manager software.
This mode is suitable for using multiple MobileConnect Stations in venues with a professional IT infrastructure.
The MobileConnect Manager represents the single point of administration for all MobileConnect Stations.
It is a highly scalable solution: additional Stations can easily be added to the system.
It provides the full range of MobileConnect capabilities, e.g. receiving cloud software updates or using different user roles for accessing the MobileConnect Manager.
MobileConnect App users can easily view and access the streaming channels automatically or by scanning a QR code.
You can find a list of system requirements for using the Manager Mode here.
In Standalone Mode a single MobileConnect Station can be run and administered using its local web interface.
This mode is suitable for using one or few MobileConnect Stations in venues with a limited IT infrastructure.
Each MobileConnect Station has to be configured and managed separately via its local admin interface; there is no centralized configuration.
This mode is easier to install and integrate into the network and requires less IT support.
It offers a limited set of features, e.g. MobileConnect App users can only access a streaming channel by scanning a QR code.
Standalone Mode users can always upgrade their system to using the MobileConnect Manager.
This mode is only supported for MobileConnect Station v2.
You can find a list of system requirements for using the Standalone Mode here.
