Missouri County Deploys Avtec Consoles with NEXEDGE Radio System
Friday, June 14, 2019 | Comments

Jasper County (Missouri) Emergency Services completed an upgrade of the county’s emergency communications system in Carthage.

The new communications system includes 10 Avtec dispatch console positions and two additional console positions that are configured for operation as a backup dispatch center or for mobile operation. The system also includes radio interfaces including a direct IP integration to the county’s JVCKENWOOD NEXEDGE multisite trunked radio system and interfaces to about 20 other radio systems via Avtec radio gateways. An application programming interface (API) integrates with the county’s CAD system to provide dispatchers with the information needed to quickly and reliably make decisions.

Jasper County Emergency Services Executive Director April Ford said dispatchers have been using the same radio consoles to coordinate with first responders for 12 years.

“Our old system was antiquated and lacked the ability to easily adapt as our business practices changed,” said Ford. “Migrating from a hardware-based system to a software-based console solution provides us with communications that are crystal clear, which helps improve officer safety and reduce response times.”
