Tennessee County’s Consolidated Center Selects Telex Consoles
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 | Comments

The Sumner County (Tennessee) Emergency Communications Center (SCECC) consolidated all of the public-safety dispatch centers in Sumner County into a single facility in Gallatin. Nashville-based Communications Group (CommTech) handled the design and integration of the radio hardware and software.

CommTech selected the Telex C-Soft console as the backbone of the system. The networked-based console connects the facility’s 29 radios to 13 dispatch positions via radio over IP (RoIP) interface gateways. The gateways have the capability of interfacing with a wide variety of radios across multiple platforms, and the facility uses radios on analog, Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) and Project 25 (P25) radio systems to meet the communications needs for all of the agencies dispatched by the SCECC.

Each of the system’s 16 gateways is capable of interfacing two physical radios, accessed via the facility’s IP network. The system is capable of handling up to 32 radios, but currently using only 29. This provides room for growth, as well as having “hot standby” spares.

In addition, the site uses a Telex network I/O device used to add building access control along with visual alarms to operator screens. The device also monitors the lighting system on the facility’s 150-foot radio tower.
