Police forces face a unique set of communication challenges. Communications must remain clear and audible throughout unusual environmental challenges – police officers may find themselves venturing underground or deep into buildings, for example – and on the move at potentially very high speeds. Data is increasingly part of the picture too, whether to enable officers on the move to run license plate checks, or to process pictures and video information.
A wide variety of technologies are available to support these data-rich communications, but a single police force also requires a single unified network to manage them.
What is our approach?
Simoco’s consultative approach means that emergency services and public safety agencies across the world benefit from radio systems that work according to their operational requirements rather than an off the shelf solution. As a manufacturer, Simoco can produce bespoke hardware that meets the precise needs of customers. Extending coverage quickly in emergency situations is critical and Simoco offers products, such as portable repeaters, that enhance communications in key operational areas.
Using an IP backbone delivers interoperability across multiple user groups, systems and platforms. The delivery of standards based systems mean that organisations aren’t locked into proprietary solutions that restrict growth and operations. Simoco’s switchless product offering means that public safety organisations benefit from flexible low cost systems.
Simoco offers future proof services that can integrate data and connectivity to support the wide range of functions required by today’s public service agencies, going beyond voice to encompass features such as high level encryption, telemetry, data applications and GPS. With global industry experience and legislative knowledge Simoco is relied upon by the public safety sector to provide and manage best in class critical communications.
What are the results?
Police forces that work with Simoco Wireless Solutions enjoy data-rich communications that remain secure and reliable even in the most restrictive environments, across wide geographical areas and when travelling at high speeds.
In turn, this enables officers to share information more rapidly and on the move, leading to more intelligent and strategic policing. Officers on the beat are empowered with data from background checks to license plates, enabling them to serve the public more efficiently and with more information at their fingertips.
