ErvoCom has received the contract to outfit the fire brigades in the regions of Höfe and March with ErvoComs newest modernized radio communications workstations.  The deployment will include the fire brigades of Wangen SZ and Schübelbach, as well as the The Emergency Services Commission for the region Höfe (Sicherheitskomission Höfe) which consists of the fire brigades of Pfäffikon SZ, Wollerau and Feusisberg-Schindeleggi as well as SEE Höfe.  The complete system consists of the Intelligent Radio Base Station (IRBS), the Intelligent Communication Soft Switch (ICSS) as well as the modern Dispatcher Console (DISCO2157).  The system enables users, via the Dispatcher Console, to communicate using multiple radio technologies (Analog, DMR, Tetra, Polycom) as well as fixed and mobile telephones.  ErvoCom is also the first company in Switzerland to integrate Polycom into a Dispatcher Console, eliminating the need for a separate Polycom dispatcher device.  Being built specially for Police and Fire Brigades and thanks to its intuitive and simplified touch interface, the system delivers increased reliability in the communication and coordination of emergency services.

The fire deparment in the municipality of Wangen put into opration the first of our new generation dipatcher working stations, DISCO. This device is specifically developed for optimized communication at fire departments. In order to facilitate handling for the individual firefighter, we paid lots of attention to develp a simple user interface with an ergonomic design. The Intelligent Communication Soft Switch ICSS integrates all different services, such as analog radio, DMR or TETRA, Polycom and the complete telephone switchboard into the dispatcher console. Our primary goal was to control the interdisciplinary communication of different services with one single device. Thereby, we placed high value in designing a self-explanatory, simple as well as a clear display and control interface.

During a recent presentation we received positive feedback from regional fire departments, power stations and municipalities.  Affirmation that we were successful in hitting our design targets.
