Imagine this. Your network has just been attacked by a destructive Trojan virus. Or perhaps your network has always been suffering from downtime but lately these cracks are becoming more pronounced.
When your network is not responsive, it is easy to assume the worst. You may fear that your network can no longer support your demands, or perhaps facing some obsolescence issues. While these are possible explanations, a host of other, more dramatic reasons could account for the network shutdown. We see the realities of network infiltration, cyber attacks, and phishing hitting the media constantly from organisations small and large who thought “we will be fine; it’s not going to happen to us”.
Take, for example a Fire and Rescue service who receives a call when a massive fire has broken out at an industrial estate somewhere. About 25 firefighters are dispatched and they need to communicate effortlessly to save lives. While they tackle the fire, dependency on the network to communicate amongst team members, is critical. Consider how you want your network to perform in this situation, especially given the potentially dire consequences of your firefighters not being able to communicate with their team leader or incident commander?
In another example we take a look at a Utility Oil and Gas organisation who found out that two of their staff had just fainted due to a poisonous gas leak in their facility. What if your network is down at the same time when you have just sent out 10 rescue workers to save them? Communication and coordination within the team for providing an effective rescue can be foiled. It could be catastrophic for organisations yet this could happen.
While these scenarios are fictional, they do demonstrate that network performance really does matter during critical moments. For many organisations, the network has become the lifeblood for safe and effective operations. The issues raised here are not small problems; they literally are the tip of the iceberg when you are facing sub-standard network performance. They also can intensify rapidly, especially when your need to communicate is as urgent as saving a life.
The best solution to determine what may be affecting your network performance is to identify what you can do to ensure that it is always working around the clock. There is no one-size that fits all, and for this reason we are offering Essential, Advanced and Premier Packages for Dimetra TETRA and ASTRO 25 systems so that our customers can easily select the solution that is designed to best meet their requirements.

Join us at PMRExpo 2016, Kölnmesse, Köln, Germany, 22-24 November, stand C12
The PMRExpo Exhibition and Conference is widely recognised as being one of the biggest and most important events in the calendar for everyone involved in Professional Mobile Radio and Control Rooms.
We will be contributing to both the conference and the exhibition (stand C12) this year.
Be sure not to miss Christoph Thomas in the conference:
And in the exhibition? The operational landscape of public safety organisations is changing. Narrow-band technologies are being paired with mobile broadband, bringing unprecedented capabilities to the edge of the public safety network. Powerful data analytics help law enforcement officials uncover actionable insights from massive volumes of structured and unstructured data; advancements in sensors and in personal area networking are bringing contextual awareness to Public Safety applications, helping to ensure that users are not overwhelmed by information.
In this year’s exhibition we will be showing a set of solutions that are optimised for Public Safety and are critical elements of our new mobile intelligence framework: a set of software and services, platforms and devices that span multiple networks and enable communication interoperability, seamless information sharing and collaboration. Here are some highlights:
