Rapidly Deployable Communications Powered By ICS and Cisco on Display at IACP
Incident Communication Solutions, LLC (ICS) will showcase several innovative products powered by Cisco at the 115th Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference and Exposition. The capabilities of ICS' signature Tactical Incident Communication System (TICS(TM)) and Comms-ONE(R) rapidly deployable communication system will both be demonstrated at this year's exposition in San Diego, CA.
The Tactical Incident Communication System (TICS) is a rapidly deployable communication solution that allows First Responders to establish a Forward Base of Operations or Command Post at a moments notice. Powered by Cisco technology and built with convenience and portability in mind, TICS provides access to phones, data systems, and video teleconferencing over a satellite connection regardless of location or access to traditional infrastructure.
Built in partnership with fire rescue vehicle manufacturer E-ONE, the Comms-ONE is an SUV-based command vehicle with fully converged Internet Protocol (IP)-based communication system allowing transmission of real-time data, voice and video. Developed in-part using Cisco technology, the Comms- ONE provides a "first-to-arrive" comprehensive communications platform, providing interoperability at any level and continuity of operations.
Both the Comms-ONE and TICS utilize ICS' Tactical-IP(SM) Broadband Satellite Service. With Tactical-IP responders can access critical information from the incident scene or provide valuable situational awareness back to command staff. Tactical-IP provides up to 3Mb/s downlink and 1 Mb/s uplink from the system anywhere in the Continental United States (CONUS).
ICS solutions will provide a cornerstone in the foundation of Cisco's 'Innovation Transforming Public Safety' display at IACP. Cisco will be demonstrating several open platform solutions for Incident Command and Response including rapidly deployable communications; satellite communications as well as National Incident Management System incident command, governance, and operations solutions. See these innovative systems and solutions in Booth # 5105.
The IACP Conference and Exposition is the principle event for the law enforcement community. More then 15,000 law enforcement professionals are expected to attend IACP, which will take place November 8-12, 2008.
