Acom EVO digital dispatch solution can now run on a tablet PC can now operate over a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. This allows Acom EVO to be deployed quickly, providing command and control wherever and whenever remote or mobile dispatch operations are needed.
Acom EVO is compatible with any Windows 7/8 tablet with 32-bit or greater operating system and can be used with a Bluetooth connected headset or the tablet’s built-in speaker and microphone. Connection to a LTE network allows for full dispatching capability at remote or on-scene locations. Whether the need is to set up a temporary dispatch location or provide dispatchers capabilities during transition to a disaster recovery center, users will be able to connect to multiple radio channels simultaneously, make telephone calls and patch calls to radio users all from the palm of their hand.
Zetron's “next-generation” Advanced Communication (Acom) System—Acom EVO. Acom EVO offers the reliability, feature capabilities, intuitive operation, and flexible configuration for which Acom is known, but takes Acom’s IP connectivity to the next level by offering IP all the way to the desktop. It is also designed for use with emerging network technologies.
Acom EVO offers a host of features and functionality that make it easy to administer and use.
- The system’s Dispatch console software can run either at a position in standard mode, which requires only an IP-connected laptop and a headset for any mobile-command type application; or as a full-featured dispatch console, using a USB-connected Media Dock.
- The Media Dock provides dual-headset operation and up to four speaker connections. The Media Dock also includes local digital I/O capability, desk microphone, instant recall recorder, foot switch, local telephone and auxiliary audio interfacing.
- Console-audio routing is easy to set up in Acom EVO. Its Manager Configuration tool is used to build a routing matrix for a position. Any input audio source can be configured to appear at any output source.
- Acom EVO’s redundancy allows for failover operation, even in the most complex IP network environments.
- The system’s bandwidth requirements are considerably lower than most other IP console systems. Acom EVO uses a redundant media controller to control all selections, patching and monitoring. This provides a combined audio stream to the console rather than separate streams for each intended radio/telephony connection. This results in very efficient use of the IP network and makes a significant difference when using dispatch consoles at many different locations.
