Avtec Inc. announced its latest software release, ScoutTM
2.4, is now in controlled deployment to six customer sites. Scout
2.4 is a Project 25 (P25)-compliant solution that incorporates several
elements that enhance connectivity capabilities, reporting, and the
dispatchers' experience. With this release, Avtec introduces Scout with
FrontierTM technology, a new software application that
simplifies network deployment by eliminating multicast Internet Protocol
(IP) traffic across wide area networks.
Two-thirds of the participants in the Avtec Scout
2.4 controlled deployment program are public safety customers. “We
understand the public safety market. We installed our first console
solution in a public safety call center in 1991. Now, we have more than
safety customers who rely on our technology to dispatch emergency
services in mission-critical situations,” said Avtec’s Director of
Product Marketing, Michael Ridge.
The Scout with Frontier
will be demonstrated in Avtec’s booth #413 during the 2012
Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) conference
in Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 19-22.
Scout ReportsTM is an optional tool that monitors voice
traffic, call load, and channel use; and based on that data, allows call
center managers to effectively allocate resources. Also available is the
optional Scout Console API Software Development Kit (SDK) that
includes tools, documentation, and samples that can be used to write,
build, test and deploy Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) applications to
communicate with the Avtec Scout product suite.
