Every year, the International Wireless Communications Expo hosts one of the largest meetings of communications technology professionals, and this year was no exception. The 2015 IWCE conference came and went with a flurry of events, exhibitors, and keynote speeches, each as informative as the next and each showcasing the newest and the best. With thousands of attendees and hundreds of exhibitors, the IWCE provided a chance to network with communications professionals from around the world.
ModUcom was a proud exhibitor at the 2015 IWCE, showcasing the state-of-the-art Ultra-Com IP system and its advanced capabilities. The new Ultra-Com IP was developed by ModUcom’s engineers who kept usability, cost, and intuitiveness in mind when constructing the console. NENA i3 compliant, the Ultra-Com integrates E9-1-1/NG9-1-1, radio dispatch, and also incorporates interoperability/VoIP, telephone, and mapping in a single software application, making it the most reliable and convenient console on the market. The system is also P25 CFSI compatible, allowing communication with equipment developed by different vendors. With free upgrades and technical support for the life of the product, the Ultra-Com IP is easily the most cost effective system that any PSAP can utilize.
ModUcom is a member of the P 25 Technology Interest Group (PTIG), committed to developing products that maintain digital interoperability for voice and data communications with other P25 compliant products. ModUcom’s Ultra-Com IP was one of multiple vendors involved in the DHS Science and Technology’s live demonstrations of Radio Internet-Protocol Communications Module (RIC-M) and was defined as a RIC-M compatible product. The RIC-M is a stand-alone P25 interface that enables PSAPs to upgrade their older legacy consoles without spending thousands of dollars. The RIC-M is capable of bridging communications equipment regardless of brand, over the Internet or Private Internet Protocol Network, thereby facilitating seamless interoperable communication. The RIC-M’s capacity for interoperability can tremendously cut costs by negating the need to replace legacy equipment, and allowing older base station equipment to be used for another 10 to 20 years, potentially saving PSAPs nationwide millions of dollars.
Thanks to the IWCE, ModUcom was able to reconnect with clients and friends from the past as well as meet new ones. The ModUcom team wants to thank everyone for dropping by our booth to learn about the Ultra-Com IP and for participating in our annual money jar contest. Attendees participated in the giveaway by providing contact information through badge scanning and were also prompted to engage with ModUcom through social media. ModUcom has a Facebook and Twitter through which we keep in contact with our followers, posting updates such as the money jar winner. We were proud to announce that this year’s winner was Alan Clark, who guessed the exact amount of the jar’s contents at $477. Alan is the Systems Technician and Design Engineer of Clark Communications Inc., and has over 35 years of experience in remote radio site work. He focuses on public safety communications and is certified for E9-1-1 systems installation and support. Thank you so much Alan for participating!
Once again, we want to thank IWCE as well as Urgent Communications for the mobile updates and for putting on a wonderful show! We hope that the IWCE’s success continues so as to encourage communications professionals worldwide to spread ideas and share knowledge. See you next year IWCE.
