Unifying Critical Communications

Your mission depends on critical communications that extend beyond voice to integrated systems and data applications.

Public Safety agencies, Utilities and other critical infrastructure organizations must have reliable critical communication systems that will not fail them when it matters most. But they also need smart applications that increase their situational awareness and reduce the time it takes to do repetitive tasks.  

Long Term Evolution (LTE) broadband enables first responders and front line staff to use smart devices for data, video, mapping, text and other applications, all of which help improve the quality, speed and usefulness of their communications. In turn, these improve their operational efficiency and inter-agency cooperation. When these next generation tools are seamlessly combined with secure, interoperable P25 and DMR for mission critical voice, an end-to-end, unified communications solution is created.

Unlike other critical communications companies, we're not focused on a closed approach which limits applications, devices and flexibility. Rather, Tait is creating a platform where our clients can use any device they want, and we will seamlessly connect them to the information they need through the best method available.

Bruce Mazza, Marketing Solutions Manager, Tait Communications

Unifying diverse communications platforms and tools into a seamless solution is the key to giving front line staff immediate access to information, experts and other jurisdictions for dramatically improved outcomes.

Communications solutions must leverage the latest, best of breed technologies and standards available to help transform the way their first responders communicate. At Tait, we are Unifying Critical Communications that provide increased situational awareness through visibility of people, assets and context. Our solutions are turning voice, video and data information into seamlessly accessible and actionable wisdom, allowing the front-line to focus on their mission—not the technology.

The wealth of operational benefits for Unifying Critical Communications start with providing access to real-time, accurate information that will provide:

Agency interoperability

Enabling communication over open standards IP-based channels provides a common platform for public safety agencies and critical infrastructure companies to communicate when required.

Simplified ICT

Using open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allows web-based integration methods to connect disparate applications. This allows your mission critical communications to operate with any device you have chosen for your staff, or to complement your BYOD strategies.

Introducing Unified Critical Communications for Public Safety

Learn how a unified critical communications approach can work, and how it can increase end user productivity, improve resilience and reduce costs.

Improved workforce efficiency

Mobile devices can significantly improve the capabilities of frontline workers. By enabling specialists to remotely examine situations, mobile devices can extend the reach of your often centralized resources. Unified communications devices can also significantly reduce administration time of front line workers with automated reporting applications.  

Cost reductions

Architectural flexibility and an open approach will allow you to implement BYOD policies and add a range of applications and services over time that will, in turn, provide OPEX and CAPEX reductions. Unified communications enables you to customize your environment for your needs, such as carrying low-speed data over narrowband pipes e.g. telemetry data and voice over the same platform.  

Improved situational awareness

Unified communications will help you to know where your team, fleet and devices are anytime, every time. By connecting all of your devices, you can use video, voice and text to increase awareness and improve remote decision making.

Increased accountability

Capturing real-time events and rich-media, and then storing it for later review improves your post-incident review processes and accuracy.

Improved safety

Location based technology on any device can make your workforce visible and traceable. Body sensors can capture vital health statics and transmit the information to command and control for decision making to keep people out of dangerous situations, or respond immediately when the need arises.

Improved customer service

Unified Critical Communications keeps your first responders and front line staff on patrol and fixing outages, not in the office.
