MAX Dispatch delivers fully functional, affordable mobile operations

Redmond, WA, U.S.A., July 29, 2013― Zetron, a leading providerof mission-critical communications solutions worldwide,announced that its MAX Dispatch system now delivers ona tablet PC or laptop the full functionality and innovative features it provides at operator positions inthe control room. This gives customers the flexibility to deploy temporary, backup or mobile dispatchoperations quickly, securely and affordably, when the need arises.

As a result, MAX Dispatch now supports a number of scenarios that are common to many command-and-controlcenters and public-safety agencies.

For example, if a communication center must be evacuated due to a storm, flood or other natural disaster,dispatch operations can quickly be transferred to a backup center that is utilizing MAX Dispatch on tabletPCs or laptops. That same center can be ready and waiting to provide additional dispatching support overtablet PCs or laptops,if a large-scale event overwhelms the main center’s dispatch operations. And,insidethe communication center, MAX Dispatch operating on a tablet PC or laptop allows a supervisor to keep intouch with dispatch operations while moving throughout the building.

“We’ve had customers bring us many situations where they would benefit from having operatorsuntethered from their desks,” said Kathy Broadwell, Zetron’s vice president of product management. “This mightinvolve planning for a dispatcher to be on site at an air show or NASCAR event,so they can dispatch helpimmediately,if there’s an accident. Or,they might want the flexibility to allow personnel to do other tasksin the building while still handling their dispatch duties. Zetron’s MAX Dispatch remote capability not onlygives customers the freedom to respond to these types of situations much more quickly and fluidly, but itmakes a whole new range of mobile dispatch operations possible and affordable.”
