Avtec Scout E8 Dispatch Console

Powered by the same proven technology used in Avtec’s flagship Scout™ EX solution, the Scout E8 dispatch console meets the needs of customers who need a scalable, reliable solution for single and multi-site distribution. It provides connections to a variety of conventional and trunked Land Mobile Radio (LMR) platforms through standards-based protocols and proprietary systems, as well as connectivity to broadband Push to Talk over Cellular (POC), LTE, and telephony technologies. A fully customizable and intuitive interface enables your dispatchers to set their screens up to meet their exact needs.

Scout Enterprise dispatch consoles are available in four different models that can be mixed and matched across your network, allowing each of your dispatchers to be equipped with the right size console for their job. You can upgrade your console seat license at any time to easily increase capacity whenever your requirements change.

Scout E8

Dispatch Solution


Avtec’s Scout E8 console delivers a reliable, scalable software dispatching solution that allows up to eight radio or telephony channels at a time on fixed or mobile consoles, giving you maximum value for a minimal investment. Scout E8 is secure, scalable, and redundant—and designed to integrate easily with leading radio, telephony, broadband technologies, the Scout E8 console provides full capabilities for dispatch centers that require fewer communication channels

Connect to the Right People, Every Time
Regardless of the type of communication system deployed, Scout E8 can connect to it. Avtec supports conventional and trunked radios with standards-based or proprietary interfaces, as well as broadband POC and telephony technologies.

Need a Reliable System?
Scout E8 is built on Avtec’s flagship platform, Scout Enterprise, which is used by six major U.S. airlines, 70% of North America’s Class I railroads, 60 global utilities, and dozens of Fortune 500 companies. Scout Enterprise is also the radio dispatch console thousands of first responders depend on. The system is fully redundant, supports geographically dispersed architecture, and is designed to maintain operations in every situation.

Adherence to Security Standards for Your Peace of Mind
Cybersecurity breaches are more prevalent than ever. The Scout family of solutions are NERC-CIP/NIST special publication 800-53 compliant to help ensure your control room dispatch console system meets corporate and regulatory security requirements. For continuous security management, each software release completes security vulnerability scans to help keep your networks protected from threat actors.

Make the Screens What You Need Them to Be
Need to replicate a legacy console system to minimize training time and increase efficiency? You got it. Have a complicated workflow that requires a specific screen layout to minimize errors? No problem. The Scout E8 graphical user interface is fully customizable to your center’s workflows and dispatchers’ needs. Scout delivers the flexibility you need so your center can run at optimum efficiency.

Just the Right Size, Now and Later
The Avtec Scout E8 console is designed for commercial operations, energy, and public safety clients who require up to eight radio, telephony, broadband POC, or LTE channels. You can protect your investment by adding capacity and capability as your dispatch center’s needs grow and change because the Scout Enterprise console family is fully interoperable. Adding the Resource Pro Tool to the Scout E8 allows the dispatcher to choose which eight endpoints will be in use, providing a focused use of the system’s resources for concentrated situational response.

Flexibility to Dispatch Where the Action Happens
A mobile license enables Avtec Scout E4 consoles to be deployed on a laptop or a tablet—on-premise or in the field—which allows users to monitor and control operations while away from central dispatch and stay in touch during ongoing incidents for enhanced situational awareness.
