Motorola solutions is launching WAVE PTX Government in Australia, a flexible communications service that extends the reach of mission-critical two-way radio systems and provides interoperable voice and video communications.
WAVE PTX Government includes the Critical Connect feature, which connects multiple public safety agencies to secure real-time voice communications and data over a single communications link.
The service also offers a wide range of features based on the 3GPP MCPTT standard, including video messaging, emergency calls and remote monitoring.
Secure network access
WAVE PTX Government is hosted at Microsoft's Azure Australia Center, which provides highly secure, flexible network access within the facilities of the Canberra Data Center Australia.
Con Balaskas, general manager of Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, said WAVE PTX Government has strengthened the collaboration and communication of emergency services to enable them to cope with increasingly complex events.
Balaskas said: "Public safety agencies need reliable voice and video communications to clearly depict what is happening on the ground in the event of a major emergency."
“WAVE PTX Government makes it easy for first-aiders working with different organizations to communicate, whether they use two-way radios, smartphones or other devices. This ability is critical to managing the management of major events.”
The Australian government can access the WAVE PTX Government through a flexible subscription, allowing them to choose the carrier network provider that best suits their needs. Future versions of the service will support real-time video communication.
Interoperability becomes easy
WAVE PTX services with critical connections can be interconnected with existing two-way radio networks, including ASTRO 25 or other P25 standard networks for Motorola solutions. Critical Connect provides simple, flexible and scalable inter-agency communication between multiple radio systems over a single communication link.
