In the event of a crisis, public safety personnel and first responders require reliable emergency responder radio coverage. Being able to communicate with their public safety two-way radio systems in buildings is crucial for first responders to execute time-sensitive and mission-critical tasks to protect themselves, and the public. Emergency Responder Communications Enhancement Systems (ERCES) are often installed to provide these necessary means of communication.
Over the years, public safety communications have evolved from simple ﬁre call boxes to analog land mobile radios (LMR), to digital LMRs and trunked radio systems. Today the evolution continues with a shift to multi-mode communications combining LTE, data communications such as email, apps, and VoIP, and IoT, enabling new technical appliances such as sensors, infrared, location mapping, and drones. These new technologies can provide signiﬁcant value for ﬁrst responders yet without the right communications network in place, they are simply not available.
Avari® Wireless public safety digital Distributed Antenna System (DAS), the Avari VL™ Series, provides a reliable, high-performance, and high-availability system designed to support both current and future public safety communication requirements.
Avari's systems are enabling emergency communications indoors, which helps keep first responders, public safety personnel, and the public alike safe.
