Trends in next-gen control room solutions
At the recent Australasian Critical Communications Forum (ACCF) Workshop held as part of Comms Connect in Melbourne, Ranjan Bhagat, Vice President and General Manager, Zetron Australasia, made a presentation about next-gen control room solutions.
His presentation highlighted global trends in control room solutions — standards, market forces and operational requirements driving convergence of voice and data.
Bhagat said the focus was on a customer- and solutions-focused approach while ensuring interoperability and bridging for end users as they gradually transition from LMR to an LTE world.
“In Australia there is no one-size-fits-all communication solution due to the size and population distribution of our country,” Bhagat said. “We have an opportunity to do what makes sense for us here so that our first responders and our community get practical affordable solutions that provide them actionable information to ensure optimum situational awareness and emergency response times.”
