Redmond, WA, U.S.A., August 10, 2015 – Zetron, a leading provider of mission-critical communications solutions worldwide, and Airbus DS Communications announced the successful integration of Zetron’s AcomNOVUS with the Airbus VESTA™ Radio P25 infrastructure. Live demonstrations of two systems running together will be offered in both the Zetron and Airbus DS Communications booths at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) Conference being held in Washington D.C., August 16-19, 2015. The demonstrations will highlight the seamlessness with which AcomNOVUS and the VESTA Radio 25 solution utilizing the Console Subsystem Interface (CSSI) are able to interoperate.
The AcomNOVUS system is based on an enterprise-class server architecture that supports the full use of IP technology. It also delivers feature capabilities that are ideal for the P25 community, such as true, end-to-end encryption, super grouping, and automatic radio-alias updating. AcomNOVUS is the most flexible console system in the industry, offering countless options for designing screens and routing audio. In addition, it provides the unified and seamless integration of telephone and radio technologies that many mission-critical operations require and that other console solutions are unable to offer.
“We are excited that Airbus DS Communications will be featuring our new AcomNOVUS system operating with their VESTA Radio solution in their booth at APCO,” said Zetron Product Manager, Daniel Oliphant. “It will give conference attendees the opportunity to see for themselves how they benefit when vendors work together with two powerful systems to create a combined solution based on an open standard such as the CSSI.”
“By merging our technical capabilities, Airbus DS Communications and Zetron are expanding on the promise of P25,” said John Szpak, General Manager of LMR Systems Product Line at Airbus DS Communications. “Our team is eager to offer these expanded features to our VESTA Radio customers so they have even smarter ways to keep their communities safe. This solution offers customers a completely open-standards-compliant system that puts choice and control in their hands.”
