As public sector services seek to modernise their operations to improve efficiency in the face of modern demands, police, fire and rescue, and ambulance services require robust and dependable ICT systems to aid the critical services they provide.
To show how emergency services can address the increasing impact of technology on their operations, Telent will exhibit at the British Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (BAPCO)’s Newcastle conference, showcasing how its solutions are helping emergency services teams up and down the country.
Taking place on November 13 and 14 at St. James’ Park, Telent will join figures from the public safety sector, as well as the supplier community and independent consultants, for the event.
Critical comms collaboration
At BAPCO Newcastle, Telent will showcase its Managed Services offering, which is specifically designed to help emergency services successfully modernise their ICT infrastructures and transition to the new Home Office’s new Emergency Services Network (ESN) critical communications system.
Telent will also show its digital evidence management solution, which provides police forces with a single point of access to collate, store, analyse, manage and share digital assets including CCTV, mobile data and photographs, among other technologies. This can help police forces around the country save valuable time and money while providing better investigative services as the use of public, business and personal CCTV increases, along with the ever-present use of smartphones and dash cams.
“Our decades-long experience in critical communications informs our work with the UK’s public sector agencies, and we look forward to discussing our mission-critical solutions at BAPCO Newcastle and sharing how Telent can transform the communications technology of the country’s valued police, fire and rescue, and ambulance services,” said Shani Latif, Sales Director at Telent.
Telent’s services have proven their value across a range of operational instances, such as control rooms and emergency services vehicle communication systems. Telent has deployed integrated mobilising solutions to enable more efficient communication, faster dissemination of critical information and quicker response of crews to emergency incidents.
The sky’s the limit
The potential risk of drones will also be addressed by Telent and its Drone Threat Management System, developed in conjunction with Digital Global Systems (DGS) CLEARSKY. This solution can protect stadiums, large public venues, airports and utilities from the unpredictable threat of unauthorised and malicious drone usage.
Detecting drone activity from up to two kilometres away, the solution will identify the drone’s type as well as locate the drone operator and monitor the drone’s flight path. Any rogue wireless signals are also captured, interpreted and located, detecting unauthorised users and signal sources that may disrupt radio communications.
“Usage of drones is showing no signs of letting up so organisations and businesses must be ready to combat unauthorised drone use,” said Latif. “We’re delighted to present this solution at BAPCO and help business avoid the significant repercussions of an unexpected drone attack.”
Telent will exhibit at BAPCO Newcastle 2019 from 13-14 November at stands 12 and 13.
