Avtec and EF Johnson Demonstrate Interoperability

August 09, 2016 | by Tiffany Rushton

LEXINGTON, SC – August 9, 2016 – Avtec, Inc., the nation’s leading independent provider of mission-critical, standards-based Radio over Internet Protocol (RoIP) dispatch console systems, demonstrates interoperability with EF Johnson Technologies’ ATLAS® P25 system solution. Existing and new ATLAS P25 system users will enjoy the option of deploying Avtec’s Scout™ console in their next-generation dispatch communications center with the assurance that it operates with a wide variety of P25-compatible radios.

“We continue to invest in Scout to ensure its interoperability with the leading radio technology platforms,” said Mike Ridge, director of strategic partnerships for Avtec. “This is another example of why Scout should be the first technology chosen for a next-generation communications center, because we leverage the power of standards to assure compatibility, today and into the future.”

“EF Johnson is excited to announce the integration of our ATLAS P25 system solutions with Avtec Scout dispatch consoles via the P25 CSSI standard interface,” said Karthik Rangarajan, senior vice president of strategy and products, EF Johnson. “This integration expands a growing ecosystem of standards-based, vendor solution offerings. It strengthens the viability and capability of using standards-based interfaces to enhance P25 system capabilities for radio users and dispatch operators.”

The interoperability between these two systems illustrates the benefits of selecting standards-based equipment which enable system designers to make flexible decisions about the radios, interfaces, and networking equipment that are best suited for their particular application.

“We’re empowering public safety and utility organizations with greater flexibility when designing and implementing their P25 systems,” said Rangarajan. “They can choose industry-leading solutions from different vendors that best fit their needs rather than being locked into any one vendor’s proprietary architecture.”

Demonstrations will be conducted during the upcoming APCO 2016 Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida at the JVCKENWOOD booth, No. 1027.

  • Monday, Aug. 15, 4:30 p.m. EDT
  • Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2:00 p.m. EDT
