Avtec supports mission critical industries


Scout is a true VoIP console system; all its components may be distributed over a LAN/WAN infrastructure using standard Ethernet. There is no backroom TDM switch.

Users said they want a console that does every-thing a traditional console does, yet operates on a network. Scout delivers this functionality today, and through active product development and customer feedback, new enhancements are continually incorporated into the feature set.

Scout is Avtec’s 4th Generation console product, and was designed for a 10+ year lifecycle in mission-critical environments. Scout provides a dedicated media workstation with its own Ethernet connection and rugged peripherals. This allows customers the option to operate on standard PCs and benefit from reduced life-cycle support costs.

Radio, Telephony, and I/O integration are supported via VPGate; multiple technologies such as MPT1327, MOTOTRBO, P25 (DFSI and CSSI), iDEN, NXDN, and SIP can connect simultaneously. Furthermore, VPGate is N+1 redundant so there are no single points of failure to your critical communications assets. Non-VoIP capable radios can be connected with Avtec’s Outpost, which allows advanced control of many radios through a serial port.

Scout supports the P25 Console Sub-System Interface (CSSI) for direct IP connections from VPGate to P25 trunked radio systems. This new release offers an interface that allows integration of console positions with third-party Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems, along with many other enhancements.
