When it comes to National Security, Disaster Response, or School Active-Shooter Incidents effective communications are critical for minimizing the loss of life and containing the threat. Typically, the first challenge that any soldier, first responder, or law enforcement official faces in these situations is overcoming the lack of interoperability of communications systems utilized by various organizations. The primary means of communications are push-to-talk radios. However, each agency has their own brand of radio system that meets their particular needs. The problem is, most radio networks of one brand will not interface with other radio networks of another brand. They are ‘partisan’ to their own brand. Therefore, when an urgent situation arises, communications are hampered, resulting in chaos.
What is needed is a communications bridge that enable mission critical systems that ensure the timely exchange of information and platform agnostic inter-operability of communications systems. In the current advent of ‘Bring Your Own’ communications equipment, first responders, interagency operators, and military units rely on encrypted private networks that connect radios of all makes; telephones; smartphones; and tablets, allowing secure communications to be shared across all devices that are joined to the mobile communications hub, in real time.
In complex and fluid environments JohnsTek is a key enabler in missions calling for adaptive technologies and secure communications. Our integrated communications platform and collaboration system consists of two major components, the Integration and Collaboration Suite, and the High-Bandwidth communications network. These two components create communications nodes that link the disparate communications modes into a single system that connects over wide areas. This system facilitates the sharing of voice, data, video and other IP based communications, and forms the backbone of our tailored solution, KOPIS.
