Mission-critical Reliability
Many of the largest utilities in the United States rely on Avtec’s dependable Scout console systems to manage 24/7/365 dispatch operations in command and control centers.

To build a perfect-fit communications solution, Scout consoles integrate seamlessly with radio and telephony technologies, including hardware from Avaya®, NEC®, and Cisco®. Replace analog or IP trade turret systems and other dedicated hardware to build a unified dispatch communications center. Standards-based integration architecture enables interoperability between communications equipment from various manufacturers that is often unavailable with proprietary, “single source” console solutions.

In the event of connectivity loss or hardware failure, redundant system architecture ensures controlled failover resulting in maximum uptime and minimal stress for your workforce.

User Friendly Interface
Scout is a flexible, IT-friendly command center solution providing unified views of system diagnostics, alarms, and reports that allow for faster resolution times and incident tracking. The system’s intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) can be customized to match legacy screens for fast adoption and minimal training. Permission based administration roles and remote system administration tools enable operational efficiency while limiting employee frustrations.
