SBRPCA Deploys Avtec Scout System with P25 CSSI for Agency Interoperability

August 01, 2018 | by Julie Tullys

LEXINGTON, S.C. – July 31, 2018 – Avtec, Inc., the nation’s leading independent provider of mission-critical, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) dispatch console systems, has deployed a new 17-position Scout console system utilizing the P25 Console Subsystem Interface (CSSI) for the South Bay Regional Public Communications Authority in Hawthorne, California.


The project, completed with Avtec certified channel partner Commline Inc. in Gardena, California, provided SBRPCA with a migration strategy from their current conventional system to a regional Scout/Motorola Solutions Astro P25 trunked system that provides dispatching for six cities and interoperability for multiple public safety and government agencies throughout Los Angeles County. SBRPCA is one of the first joint power of authority-owned regional dispatch centers in California.


“Whether the incident involves a single agency or mutual aid across multiple jurisdictions, the interoperability we will have across our region gives us more depth and responsiveness,” remarked John Krok, administration manager of SBRPCA. “Our needs from agency to agency aren’t the same. With Scout and the P25 CSSI, we have a dynamic system that is flexible and customizable. Any South Bay agency will be able to roll into an area outside of its immediate locality with confidence in the consistent reliability of our regional communications system.”


Jeff Fukasawa, sales director of Commline, explained that Avtec’s Scout system with the P25 CSSI integration was the right solution to support convergence of SBRPCA’s differing analog and digital technologies. “South Bay’s new system is a huge showcase for our region,” he said. “The communication quality and consistency across the region ensures South Bay’s first responders have the timely, reliable information they need when handling emergency situations in our communities.”


“Avtec applauds SBRPCA for its success in achieving expanded interoperability within the South Bay region,” said Avtec’s director of North American channel sales, Steve Woodrow. “We continue to work closely with our channel partners and public safety clients to develop the broadest range of technology interfaces and interoperability options so they can rely on secure, reliable communications across multiple networks and between diverse agencies.”
