Zetron's consoles ready for FirstNet

Zetron has announced that its MAX Dispatch and ACOM command and control systems are ‘FirstNet-ready’.

Both systems support network-integrated, broadband PTT interoperability with three of the four largest US cellular carriers, as well as interoperability with over-the-top PTT solutions such as ESChat. The consoles are also ready for IOC-1, pre-MCPTT integration with FirstNet, and are field upgradable for future 3GPP Mission Critical PTT (MC-PTT) interworking.

In addition, Zetron’s consoles can serve as an LMR-to-LTE and LTE-to-LTE interoperability gateway, enabling cross-carrier PTT operation, with preservation of traffic priority, regardless of solutions used on those carriers.

“Now that all states have opted in to FirstNet, subscribing agencies will be planning for the necessary integration of their PSAP systems with the NPSBN,” said Randy Richmond, Zetron’s standards and regulatory specialist.

“What we are offering is particularly important for multiagency dispatch centres whose agencies may be split between using FirstNet and other carriers, because dispatchers can now control cross-carrier LTE-to-LTE PTT interoperability, as well as LTE-to-LMR interworking.”

“The FirstNet aspects as related to broadband integration have global application, including here” in Australia, added Zetron Australasia Vice President and General Manager Ranjan Bhagat.
