Our ACU technology provides an interface for your radio system to other communication systems without having to replace existing equipment.
Day-to-day operations and emergency situations on college or school campuses require various audio devices to connect in real time. The lack of interoperability has plagued public safety for years. The inability to connect disparate audio devices is not just a problem for first responders anymore. Campus and school security professionals may also be unable to communicate during sporting events, concerts, campus events and emergency situations due to diverse communication devices.
College campuses are large and dynamic, with people coming and going all the time. In the scenario below, this college is using the JPS VIA PTToC smartphone application to facilitate communications. Campus Administration is using Talk Group 1, and Campus Security is using Talk Group 2. Members of each talk group can communicate with each other within their respective talk group, and the two talk groups can be patched together when requested.
In addition to the JPS VIA smartphone application, campus security also relies on radios (LMRs). The RSP-Z2 provides a convenient mechanism for patching JPS VIA Talk Group 2 and Campus Security radios; configure one of the RSP-Z2’s channels for radio with a JPS VIA backhaul linked to Talk Group 2 in the VIA server. Although the device types and protocols are disparate, the RSP-Z2 patches them together with ease.
When confronted with an emergency situation, all talk groups in this example can be connected with the area’s public safety services by utilizing the second radio interface on the RSP-Z2. This allows the otherwise disjointed groups to work together effectively.
