Unified Network Services (UNS) is the invisible glue that holds critical communications together – this application platform might not be visible to the user but the benefits will be noticeable. This underlying technology produces a more dynamic work group communications environment that can be leveraged by applications running on your LMR and broadband networks. You can use UNS to bring together the best elements of radio and broadband in order to accomplish four things:
• Centralize group creation and create standards around messaging. Groups are crucial to the way your organization works, and by ensuring that group definitions are centralized means UNS can connect teams across networks,devices and applications.
• Offer the capability for applications to send a message to any user or any group, regardless of device or network.
• Create a single definition of presence and location. UNS provides a central database for the status of all users and their location, regardless of device. This centralized data can then be queried by any application.
• Develop single sign-on and application authentication. No matter how many different applications an individual uses on their device, they sign in only once and are authorized to use your enterprise definitions.
