ASTRO 25 Systems At A Glance Brochure




3 ALWAYS AVAILABLE COMMUNICATIONS Reliable communication, everywhere you operate, is crucial for an effective operations and for the safety of your personnel. Responding to a natural disaster, routine traffic stop or ensuring safety at a parade, they all ® need reliable, mission-critical voice and data communications, regardless of the conditions. With ASTRO 25 you can change the outcome. RESILIENT AGAINST SERVICE DISRUPTIONS CAPACITY WHEN YOU NEED IT Built with multiple levels of redundancy and fallback modes, ASTRO 25 Large scale incidents and disasters can put increased demands on your systems maintain wide-area communications under the harsh conditions, communication system. With advanced channel management technology even in the event of multiple points of failure. and system engineering, ASTRO 25 can handle the load and ensure the most urgent communications will get through. UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS SECURE YOUR COMMUNICATIONS COVERAGE EVERYWHERE Mission-critical systems are a primary target for eavesdroppers and Because nobody knows where the next incident will occur, you need hackers. ASTRO 25 authentication and encryption technology blocks a communication system with superior coverage. With best in class unauthorized access. And if one of your devices is lost or stolen, ASTRO 25 prediction tools, system designs and radio performance, you know can disable the unit and track its location to assist in the recovery.

5 CONVERGENCE SUITE SHARE MORE INFORMATION WITH MORE USERS Simplify the ability for multiple applications to come together for seamless communications. Whether in ASTRO 25 or broadband environments, multiple applications can subscribe to key services for a common view. Information such as talkgroups, location and presence is available to any application and any network. This reduces network traffic by eliminating the need for each application to ping each device individually. Different mapping applications can now each plot the same location of P25 and LTE devices, providing a common operating view regardless of the application or network. Likewise, shared presence, identity and talkgroup data can be used to send text messaging to groups of users on radios, laptops and smartphones. | 5 BROCHURE ASTRO 25 SYSTEM AT-A-GLANCE
