Harris to Resell Avtec Consoles in North America
Thursday, March 23, 2017 | Comments

Avtec and Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications (PSPC) signed an agreement giving Harris the ability to resell Avtec Scout consoles in North America.

The Harris EnableLocation application, powered by Tait, builds on Avtec’s Scout console technology to deliver radio over IP (RoIP) connectivity through Harris trunked networks.

“This strategic alliance with Harris allows Avtec to respond to increased market demand for Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) technology and gives our client base more choices,” said Avtec President Kevin Williams. “This agreement formalizes our commitment to provide clients with a proven end-to-end communications solution.”

In addition to being the first console company to join the Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Association, Avtec is also an active member of the P25 Technology Interest Group (PTIG). Leveraging open standards allows Avtec to integrate other technologies such as GPS data, AVL, mapping and texting into its Scout dispatch console system.

“Investing in dispatch solutions built on open standards such as DMR and P25 provides customers with the freedom to choose the best communications solution for their organization,” said Michael Ridge, Avtec’s director of strategic partnerships. “Clients with an Avtec Scout console system can operate legacy analog and digital mobile radios on the same network. This allows them to migrate at their own pace based on budget or timing.”
