RALEIGH, N.C., March 19 (UPI) -- U.S. company Raytheon has unveiled new software that provides first responders with immediate alerts of radio-network problems.
Raytheon unveiled its P25 Network Management Software for use with the P25net digital land mobile radio network, an Internet protocol-based radio system. Officials said the new P25net NMS would enable first responders using P25net to monitor the system and ensure optimal performance.
P25net NMS, unveiled at the International Wireless Communications Expo taking place in Las Vegas through Friday, is designed to notify first-responder radio-system managers of any P25net network component failures so that the network can be appropriately restored.
"The P25net NMS provides our customers with control of their entire P25 network from a centralized location," Bill Iannacci, Raytheon Network Centric Systems director of civil communications solutions, said in a statement.
"Customers can remotely monitor the status of each site and effectively manage maintenance resources to ensure operational continuity."
