Radio IP Integrates Radio, 3G and 4G Networks into Multi-Agency Public Safety Mobile VPN
A single MVPN supports 60 Snohomish County public safety agencies, providing each with independent management of network resources to respect unique agency policies
August 4, 2011
Montreal, Quebec (Canada) – August 4, 2011 -- Radio IP Software Inc., a leading developer of advanced Mobile Virtual Private Network (MVPN) software solutions, today announced the deployment of both its Radio IP MTG and Mult-IP systems in a county-wide MVPN solution supporting more than 1000 mobile devices from fire, police and EMS agencies serviced by the Snohomish County Police Auxiliary Services Center (SNOPAC) and Southwest Snohomish County Communications (SNOCOM) agency. Together, these organizations provide emergency dispatch, communications and technical services for more than 60 public safety agencies across Snohomish County in Washington State.
SNOPAC and SNOCOM implemented a hybrid solution leveraging established Radio IP MTG systems and Mult-IP next-generation MVPN software from Radio IP. “Radio IP was the only vendor that offered us a solution that extended the life of our existing narrowband data network - which remains a vital component of our public service response capabilities - while still providing a seamless path for advanced wireless technologies as we need them,” said Lt. Steve Dittoe, SCSO Project Manager, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. “As we continue to migrate our agencies to a next-generation mobile CAD platform, the Radio IP MPVN solution offers us the compression, API, application-steering and enhanced multi-agency support capabilities needed to cost-effectively extend services throughout the county,” he continued. “Mult-IP and Radio IP MTG easily support our large geographic footprint while respecting our modest budget and the Radio IP implementation team exceeded our support expectations. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Radio IP as we continue to evolve our MVPN services.”
“The Radio IP solution allows SNOCOM and our member agencies to continue to realize a return on our investment in our private wireless network while at the same time take advantage of the newest technologies as they become available,” said Terry Peterson, Technology Manager, SNOCOM. “The Mult-IP platform has proven successful in our high-demand, multi-agency environment allowing customized configurations by each agency. I am excited about the features that make our required scalability and increased reliability more easily within our grasp.”
“The Radio IP, SNOPAC and SNOCOM teams have clearly set a new standard in the design and implementation of mobile VPN connectivity,” said Frank Draper, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Radio IP Software. “This project clearly demonstrates not only the intelligence and sophistication of the SNOPAC & SNOCOM networking teams, but also clearly positions them as trail blazers redefining what is possible with mobile technologies,” he continued. “Our teams worked together closely throughout the entire project, challenging accepted networking principals and considering all new possibilities to deliver users a mobile experience that is always seamless and secure.”
