Release 5.91 of IP|Console extends the advanced features of earlier Catalyst products and provides new capabilities that better meet the needs of large and small critical communications agencies for both primary and secondary missions. IP|Console can display the identity of the field radio as either a numeric Unit ID or an alias, as provided from a centralized database, and supports a variety of trunked and conventional systems like SmartNet, EDACS, Project 25, and MDC 1200. The product can decode Emergency or Man Down messages and store the identification of the radio that declared it. From a single console, dispatchers can select from hundreds of talk groups and channels on different proprietary radio systems and patch them together. In addition to the custom screens, administrators can customize settings such as how the transmitted audio changes or stays the same as the dispatcher’s voice gets louder or softer. Administrators can configure single button paging scenarios to steer the tones to a particular talk group or channel even when the scenarios need the tones to be stacked and have different destinations. Bexar County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Coordinator Robert Adelman calls these advanced features “critical in these unpredictable times.”
This advanced messaging with a variety of land mobile radio systems and cellular push-to-talk systems combined with unique networking technology make the Catalyst solutions superior to ordinary Radio over IP (RoIP) approaches. The IP|Console solution with integrated IntelliLink™ Patching and Interoperability is immediately available from Catalyst.
