Avtec Launches Three New Economical Dispatch Solutions

Source: The Critical Communications Review | Gert Jan Wolf editor

Avtec Inc. is launching a new portfolio of simplified Scout™ solutions that will be sold and supported through its network of authorized channel partners.

Powered by the same secure, scalable platform used in Avtec’s flagship Scout solution—now availableunder the rebranded name Scout Enterprise™—these economical packages are designed for dispatch centers that manage a finite number of radio, telephony, or Push-to-Talk over LTE lines.

“While Avtec has a proven track record of developing secure, reliable consoles for enterprise-level clients, one of the biggest requests from our channel partners has been for a tailored solution for smaller-scale dispatch environments,” said Avtec’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Alphonso Hamilton. “The new Scout family of solutions was designed by dealers for dealers, so it’s easier to sell, install, and support. The initial response we’ve received from our channel partners has been overwhelmingly positive. They appreciate being able to offer their clients a scalable console solution that provides a clear migration path for growth without the need for a forklift upgrade.”

The three new Scout packages are:

  • Scout 100, a four-button, hardware device that controls up to four radio channels or talkgroups.
  • Scout 400, an easy-to-expand, software-based solution to access up to four radio or telephony channels. Includes built-in mobility and redundancy features.
  • Scout 800, a scalable, software-based solution with built-in mobility and redundancy functionality. Designed to manage up to eight radio or telephony endpoints.

Demonstrations of the Scout 100, Scout 400, and Scout 800 console series will be available March 7-8 in booth 1325 during the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) in Orlando, Florida.
