Avtec Scout EX Dispatch Console

Avtec’s Scout™ EX dispatch console is the flagship product of the Scout Enterprise family of solutions. It is designed to meet the needs of customers who need a scalable, reliable solution for single and multi-site distribution. Connection to a variety of Land Mobile Radio (LMR) platforms through standards-based protocols and proprietary systems, as well as connectivity to Push-to-Talk over Cellular (POC), and telephony technologies, means your dispatch center is poised for optimal communications. A fully customizable and intuitive interface enables your dispatchers to set their screens up to meet their exact needs. The Avtec Scout system’s scalable architecture allows you to easily expand your system to meet the changing demands of your dispatching operations.

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 EX

2,000-Channel Dispatch Solution


Avtec’s Scout EX console delivers a reliable, scalable software dispatching solution that handles up to 50 audio streams and 2,000 channels on fixed or mobile consoles. Scout EX is secure, scalable, and redundant—and deliberately designed to integrate easily with leading radio, telephony, and broadband technologies.

Connect to the Right People, Every Time
Regardless of the type of communication system deployed, Scout EX 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 EX 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.

Dispersed or Centralized Dispatching—You Decide
The Avtec Scout EX console’s distributed architecture provides high scalability and load balancing for demanding environments. Whether you require centralized or decentralized dispatching, you can manage and configure your system from one or multiple locations.

Adheres to Security Standards for Your Peace of Mind
Cybersecurity breaches are more prevalent than ever. The Avtec 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.

Beyond Voice Communications
Seamless integration with non-voice platforms is another critical component of a Scout dispatch console system. Scout integrates with logging recorders from multiple partners, storing not only audio, but also metadata such as associated radio IDs and phone numbers, which makes recording retrieval easier. With Scout’s flexible API, you can control AUX I/O devices, SIP devices, and peripherals, and integrate web-based resources such as cameras, video feeds, and weather applications.

Migrate or Scale at Your Own Pace
Build the communication center you need now and protect your investment by adding capacity and capability as your needs grow and change. Since Scout Enterprise console components are fully interoperable with each other, you can build a system that meets your needs, even if your needs are diverse or may change over time.

Make the Screens What You Need Them to Be
Need to replicate a legacy console system to minimize training for maximum efficiency? You got it. Have a complicated workflow that requires a specific layout to minimize errors? No problem. As with all Scout Enterprise consoles, the Scout EX graphical user interface is fully customizable to your center’s workflows and dispatchers’ needs. Scout EX delivers the flexibility you need so your center can run at optimum efficiency.

Flexibility to Dispatch Where the Action Happens
A mobile license enables Avtec Scout EX 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 with ongoing incidents.
