The large geographic footprint of your operation relies on uncompromised voice and data communications and superior coverage, at every moment of every shift.
Agencies often manage multiple fleets of radios and traditional radio configurators are not adequate to the task. Modern P25 trunked communication systems can support thousands to tens of thousands of radios and programming and updating radios one-by-one demands a significant amount of time, resources, and manpower that public safety agencies simply do not have to spare.
In the most critical moments, you rely on your P25 radio as your lifeline. Whether you’re entering a burning building or responding to a 911 call, your radio just needs to work. During a 12 hour shift, you should be able to focus on the one thing that matters – protecting and saving lives – and have confidence that your radio battery is as resilient as you are when you need it most.
Our P25 Compliance Assessment Program (CAP) conventional interoperability testing kicked off last month as four different vendors tested their equipment with the ATLAS® P25 infrastructure system.
Preparing a successful grant application can be a daunting task. Like many agencies you are probably wondering where to start, what grants are best for you, and how to craft the perfect grant application to set your agency up for success.
In 2013, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a narrowbanding mandate that prompted many agencies to consider making the transition from analog to digital P25. While the mandate did not require this transition, it did require existing wideband systems to be modified or replaced to comply. Agencies were forced to reconsider their communication requirements and seek alternative solutions and many found that the transition to digital made sense.
First responders often work in noisy environments and having radio communications with clear audio can be a matter of life or death. It is critical that emergency radio dispatchers can understand first responders even in the most challenging noise environments.
The JVCKENWOOD team had another exciting year at the Fire Department Instructor’s Conference in Indianapolis, IN last week. Over 34,000 firefighters gathered at the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium for a full week of training and exhibition.
First responders rely on radio communications as their lifeline and require enhanced communication awareness to protect themselves and their teams. Firefighters have a unique challenge and require radio communications which thrive in a dynamic fire scene environment.
First responders need reliable communication with dispatch and each other. Whether it’s handling a traffic stop, working inside a building, or managing an incident, they need peace of mind — the assurance that their communications aren’t impacted by lack of coverage. In networks designed for mobile coverage, working inside buildings or over rough terrain makes communication challenging for portable users.
