Australian Lifeguard Company Selects Omnitronics Dispatch System
Tuesday, September 07, 2021 | Comments

The Omnitronics omnicore enterprise dispatch system was selected by Surf Life Saving New South Wales (SLSNSW) in Australia to manage radio communications for 129 clubs and more than 60 lifeguard services as part of a range of upgrades that are critical for delivering frontline lifesaving services.

omnicore enterprise dispatch will be installed at the SLSNSW State Operations Centre (SOC) at the SLSNSW Headquarters at Belrose in Northern Sydney.

This vital piece of mission-critical technology will include floating radio dispatch console licenses for 12 dispatch operators who manage communications on 22 radio channels across the state. The SOC and 65 repeater sites along more than 2,000-kilometers of Pacific Ocean coastline, from the Queensland border in the North to Eden on the South Coast, are connected using an existing Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 2 Network. Around 20,000 volunteer patrol members, as well as paid lifeguards at 80 locations along the NSW coastline, are tasked with protecting 8.5 million beach goers annually, including at popular Byron Bay, Manly and the iconic Bondi beaches.

As an omnicore beta user, the state's peak water safety and rescue organization has had the opportunity to try and test the radio dispatch system on two-times fixed and two-times mobile dispatch operator stations before committing to buy, and, in addition, the organization was able to directly feedback suggestions for possible future enhancements to the system’s feature-set.
