Australia’s Vertel Partners on Virtual Training for Emergency Services
Wednesday, June 12, 2019 | Comments

Vertel, Australia’s largest privately owned telecommunications carrier, is partnering with Beaconsim, a Finnish-based operative field communications simulator provider, to bring its solution to Australia.

Beaconsim offers solutions for critical communications training and planning for professional mobile radio (PMR) networks. The radio command-and-control dispatcher simulators are reality based, easily controlled by the trainer and measure learning.

“Beaconsim has a unique offering that is in demand with Vertel customers,” said Tony Hudson, Vertel commercial director. “The virtual training solution is attractive to large fleets, particularly in emergency services, that require consistent training for staff on how to use their in-house communications devices. Having a consistent and reliable outcome, and properly trained staff, in all operational circumstances is especially critical for emergency services in assisting with life-threatening situations, and to avoid unnecessary risk.

“While Vertel’s initial target audience for this offering is emergency services, we also hope to address other industries, such as security and surveillance and transport and logistics as the platform is valuable in training people in the use of any device. Beaconsim is complementary to Vertel’s overall offerings and consistent with our strategy of looking around the world for best-of-breed technology partners, who fit with our strategic direction to enhance our customers’ experience.”
