This client was located on a remote stretch of road that runs through Canada in South East Alaska. The city was in need of base stations and repeaters for their police, fire, and EMS to communicate in their locations.
Arcticom took a multiple system approach to solve the unique needs of the city. Utilizing both Zetron and Motorola Solutions Mototrbo systems, Arcticom supplied all-encompassing communications solutions for the city’s emergency service needs. Arcticom utilized the Zetron Dispatch Console along with remote location repeaters to reach the whole service area on a clean and efficient frequency spectrum with full duplex dispatch ability.
This new system gave the client greater coverage than their previous system, and complied with the FCC narrow banding mandate.
The system Arcticom provided includes CAD Computer Aided Dispatch, voice paging, multiple channel patch ability, IRR recording, multi-channel transmit ability for all calls, digital recorder and integrated intercoms, and door access through the Zetron dispatch console. Arcticom provided redundancy and DC power back-up for the repeater stations and base stations to ensure system integrity. In the event the repeaters go down, Arcticom utilizes standalone MTR base stations located within the public safety office to serve as a backup on simplex operation.
