Scalability and Ease of Migration
Build the dispatch communication system you need now knowing your investment is safe for the long run. The solutions of the Scout Enterprise family are fully interoperable, allowing you to add capacity and capabilities as your needs grow and change while minimizing the scope of, or even removing the need for, migration.
Need to replicate a legacy console system to ease the transition to a new system? Have a complicated workflow that requires a specific layout to minimize errors and maximize efficiency? No matter the need, the graphical user interface of Scout Enterprise consoles is fully customizable to your team’s preferences to minimize training and enhance operations.
Monitor and manage operations while away from central dispatch and stay current on ongoing incidents. A mobile license enables the deployment of Avtec Scout E8 consoles on a laptop or a tablet—on-premises or in the field—to deliver the flexibility you need to keep your center running at optimum efficiency, no matter your location.
Rest assured, regardless of the type of communication system deployed, Scout E8 can connect to it. Avtec’s Scout Enterprise solutions support conventional and trunked radios with standards-based or proprietary interfaces, as well as broadband push-to-talk over cellular (PoC) and telephony technologies, to not only honor, but also maximize, your investments in all systems.
Dispersed or Centralized
Discover the reliability and ease of the distributed architecture of Scout. The Enterprise family of solutions not only provide high scalability and load balancing for the most demanding communications environments, but also simplifies system management and configuration from one or multiple locations, whether you require centralized or decentralized dispatching.
Achieve seamless integration with non-voice platforms, including logging recorders from various vendors to store audio and its metadata (e.g., radio IDs and phone numbers), which eases recording retrieval. With our flexible API, control AUX I/O devices, SIP devices and peripherals, and access web-based resources such as cameras, video feeds and weather applications from the console.
Your dispatch communications consoles sit at the core of your organization’s communications, helping connect people to the resources they need. There are many factors that play into the selection of such a system, and your existing applications and tools should never disqualify the right dispatch communications system.
That’s why Avtec designed their Scout Enterprise platform with a single-source code that enables seamless integration of leading third-party technologies. In other words, you have freedom to connect any of your chosen communications solutions, including conventional and trunked radios, push-to-talk over cellular, SIP and analog telephony, logging recorders and more. This freedom not only simplifies your upgrade and migration strategies but also protects your previous investments.
All Scout consoles come with the following capabilities:
