Scout for Transit
Scout for Freight
Our pure IP platform links locomotive, yard, wayside, intermodal, transit and dispatch personnel for safe, efficient rail control. Manage railway dispatch and operational continuity with a single flexible communication console.
Railroad performance success can be measured in many ways—from ever-critical personnel and rail network safety metrics to major operational metrics, such as railcar velocity and dwell time, train speed and/or train length. They all require clear, reliable communications. That’s where Avtec® Scout™ dispatch consoles come in.
Providing no-fail, system-wide communications is one aspect of a dispatching solution. By using a COTS-based (commercial off-the-shelf) hardware platform in our pure IP console system, railroads can leverage non-proprietary PC, server, and IP networking equipment, which ensures business continuity, and provides a scalable system that delivers safe, efficient operations at significant savings over legacy technologies.
With failure-proof performance and profit-enhancing productivity, the Scout family improves operational efficiency and keeps workers, equipment, and railways safe. That’s why today, most railroad networks choose Scout dispatch consoles, including:
Safety is the top-priority of all freight and transit railroad operations, and clear communication is the key to achieving and maintaining safe operational environments. From a Scout console, your dispatchers can safely and efficiently manage:

Avtec Scout EX is our most robust solution and can monitor up to 250 audio streams and 2,000 channels. If your government agency needs a secure, scalable and redundant console solution to manage hundreds of resources daily, you can depend on Scout EX.
Avtec Scout E8 can monitor up to eight audio streams and eight channels at a time, providing maximum value for a minimal investment. And because it is compatible with all Scout Enterprise products, you can easily expand this system as your dispatch communications center grows.
The Avtec Scout E4 console manages up to four audio streams and eight channels at a time. This cost-effective solution is compatible with Scout EX and E8 consoles, so you can add additional software licenses when you need them.
Avtec Scout E1 is a purpose-built hardware device that delivers a compact, reliable and affordable dispatching solution for up to four radios. The E1 works as a stand-alone piece or can be combined with multiple E1 devices to create a larger system. Since Scout E1 is compatible with all Scout Enterprise products, it can be easily upgraded.
Avtec’s innovative VPGate platform and Outpost radio interface provides for an easy integration into CSX’s existing IP network, which will modernize our rail yard.
