Zetron, the mission-critical communications solutions provider, has announced that its Advanced Communications (Acom EVO) digital dispatch solution running on a tablet PC can now operate over a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.
This allows Acom EVO to be deployed quickly, providing command and control wherever and whenever remote or mobile dispatch operations are needed, the company said.
Acom EVO is compatible with any Windows 7/8 tablet with 32-bit or greater operating system and can be used with a Bluetooth connected headset or the tablet’s built-in speaker and microphone. Connection to a LTE network allows for full dispatching capability at remote or on-scene locations.
Whether the need is to set up a temporary dispatch location or provide dispatchers capabilities during transition to a disaster recovery centre, users will be able to connect to multiple radio channels simultaneously, make telephone calls and patch calls to radio users all from the palm of their hand.
‘Zetron’s tablet dispatch capability on 4G LTE networks allows you to position a dispatcher at the scene of an incident for increased situational awareness,’ said Zetron VP of Product Management, Kathy Broadwell. ‘Combine that with the ability to quickly and safely connect the remote dispatcher with the communication centre or directly to response personnel at 4G speeds and the end result is improved responsiveness.’
