InterLoc™ – Personal Location Services from Standards Based LMR Systems
May 17, 2018

Many Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems rely on proprietary devices that are mounted in a vehicle and use commercial cellular networks to retrieve location. The InterLoc™ system from Catalyst is unique because it does not use expensive map licensing or cellular data charges, making the system very cost effective compared to typical AVL solutions. InterLoc™ is intimately tied to Catalyst’s Dispatch and Interoperability solutions, and Dispatchers can initiate text and voice communications directly from the map. Maps can display subscriber status (such as Emergency, Unit ID, Talk Group, etc.) and Dispatchers can center the map on any resource with the click of a mouse. Multiple maps, and multiple types of maps, can be simultaneously displayed, and a robust map toolkit helps Dispatchers to customize maps helping manage their unique and immediate needs.
The user interface of InterLoc™ is intuitive and integrated into Catalyst’s IP|Console™ and Propulsion™ Dispatch solutions. When a radio user declares an emergency, the icon of the radio that declared the Emergency turns red and stays red until the Emergency is acknowledged by one of the Consoles. The Dispatcher can select an individual or group and initiate a text message or voice call from the map screen.

The map interface is infinitely flexible. Multiple maps, and multiple map types, may be inserted anywhere within the Catalyst console user interface, including behind a tab or on a separate monitor, and can be any size, including full screen. The Dispatcher can simultaneously view the big picture and zoom in to see precise movements. The system administrator can customize maps, adding buildings, towers, and other assets, and can temporarily add “push pins” to indicate fixed, event-based locations. No internet connection is required for map services, and maps can be downloaded and cache- saved.
