Incorporate mission-critical data as part of your comms solution
Radio users are increasingly incorporating data into their critical communications solution, using existing proven secure networks to provide additional information to supervisors and control room staff.
This capability plays an important role in helping to ensure better situational awareness for team leaders, enabling smarter operational decisions to be made.
Sharing Mission Critical Data
Data can be shared from a variety of sources, dependent on an organisation’s operational procedures. Examples can include:
- Health data from attached devices, such as heart rate monitors.
- Location data, based on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connected geofences. Team leaders can see where operational staff are located and what their status is, and can assign tasks accordingly, improving efficiency.
- Telemetry data from equipment such as vehicles or process equipment.
- Job dispatch information, sent from the control room to specific individuals or teams. Radio users can quickly accept roles, or indicate if further resources are required.
Data can also be manually entered by the radio user and sent over the network. This can be used to confirm routine maintenance tasks have been completed and that specific messages have been received.
Benefits of Data Sharing
Organisations that share this key data over existing networks can reduce costs by maximising the use of their existing hardware, while improving efficiency by enabling improved situational awareness. It is also possible to improve staff safety.
Sepura’s SC Series of TETRA radios have the ability to connect to additional data sources via Bluetooth or secure Wi-Fi, to support an organisation’s operations.
