Learn the difference Avtec can make within your VA Hospital. No matter the size of your campus or which radios or phone systems you use, the Avtec Scout family of dispatch consoles has a solution for you.


Avtec dispatch consoles have been the top choice for many critical communication dispatch centers for more than 40 years.

The Avtec Scout family of dispatch consoles provides a pure VoIP solution to meet your VA hospital’s specific dispatch requirements. Innately scalable, its components can be distributed over a LAN/WAN using standard Ethernet technology. The flexible design of Scout’s platform allows it to easily adjust and grow in capacity and capabilities as your requirements change.


With Avtec Scout at the core of communications, you can connect team members instantaneously with exceptional audio quality. If situations, such as weather or power outages, impact your primary dispatch center, your communications can automatically failover to another facility for operational continuity.

Why Choose Avtec Scout?

Mission-Critical Reliability

The large number of people who enter your doors every day requires a higher level of care and concern to ensure the safety and security of all. Our mission-critical dispatch consoles connect your resources to put plans into action. Whether you’re dispatching staff for a pandemic response, managing an active-shooter situation, or coordinating an emergency surgery, Avtec Scout consoles have the capabilities you need, including:

  • Built-in redundancies and automatic failover for ‘always on’ availability
  • One-touch access to critical resources for streamlined communications and operational efficiencies
  • The ability to view camera footage directly at the console

Your security team may use another radio system than your facilities staff, and the hospitals within your system may have varying phone systems. With Avtec Scout, it’s possible to connect them all. Built on open standards, Avtec’s Scout Enterprise solutions help you create a uniform approach to communications while protecting your organization’s investments, such as:

  • Your choice of chosen communications tools—legacy and next-generation radio telephony and broadband/LTE technologies—in both fixed and mobile dispatch environments
  • Communication within and across buildings and campuses to expedite response and ensure operational continuity
  • Air-to-ground communications and coordination with area first responders (e.g., connecting EMS personnel using radios with emergency doctors on phones)
