MACS - the Mobile Asset Control System

DOWNLOAD THE FACT SHEET

Providing comprehensive control of mobile assets, the MACS (Mobile Asset Control System) is a fully digital, VoIP, distributed touch screen system. Operators can be deployed simply and quickly as connection and log on to MACS is all done via a suitable web browser. It is both simple to use and elegant in its design. The MACS is about making contact with people and teams using the concept of named individuals and groups regardless of the method used. By considering the user first and their devices as secondary the system can manage multiple devices of mixed technology and so give interoperability. The MACS manages all communications and provides the operator with situation awareness through a unified voice, messaging and tracking solution. Messaging can include text, status and location and is not only from workforce devices but can also be from news and social media feeds.

Modules

MACS Radio Gateway
The MACS uses gateways to connect to real world physical systems. Distributed modular radio gateways provide a resilient, scalable and reliable means of remotely controlling radio base stations or fixed mobiles. A gateway capacity is only limited by the physical connections possible on a given platform. Use of more than one gateway platform may be chosen for capacity, location or for resilience.

MACS for TETRA
Each Modular Radio Gateway can be licensed for connection to 4 TETRA radios to give over air access to TETRA networks. Unlimited number of gateways can be controlled by a MACS Communicator system. This means MACS Communicator systems are able to take advantage of an array of TETRA digital functionality through friendly control panel without a land-line ground based network connection. This provides users with cost effective access to private and group calls, TMO and DMO operation, talk-group selection and text messaging.

MACS for DMR
Each Modular Radio Gateway can be licensed for connection to DMR radios to give over air access to DMR radio networks. Unlimited number of gateways can be controlled by a MACS Communicator system. This means MACS Communicator systems are able to take advantage of an array of DMR digital functionality through friendly control panel without a land-line ground based network connection. This provides users with cost effective access to private and group calls, TMO and DMO operation, talk-group selection and text messaging.

MACS for Telephony
The MACS controls telephony from a number of different sources including the PSTN and PABX both in digital, analogue and VoIP formats. It does this by means of telephony gateway devices. Telephone call handling in the MACS Communicator is by providing a SIP compliant multi-line gateway interface. A feature rich soft-switch and integrated touch screen 'phone system handles multiple calls from SIP, analogue or ISDN lines.

Mobile and Handset GPS Tracking
The MACS has built in asset tracking and mapping. Mobile and Handset GPS tracking by the MACS system is able to take advantage of an array of GPS enabled radios. The MACS allows operators to monitor workforce location and gives map-based dispatching providing users with touch to talk call control directly from the map display.
