News : NICE and Harris Corporation Complete Interoperability Testing of Next Generation Public Safety Solutions
Paramus, NJ, USA, Aug 16, 2016 – NICE has completed interoperability testing of its NRX and NICE Inform public safety solutions with Harris’ VIDA(R) system release SR10A.1 which supports Phase 1 and Phase 2 P25 trunked radio systems as well as OpenSky(R) trunking. The certification testing was performed at the Harris certification lab in Lynchburg, VA. The integrated NICE-Harris solutions have also been successfully implemented and field-proven at the Lakewood (CO) Police Department and the Parma Regional Dispatch Center (Parma, Ohio).
NRX is NICE’s capture platform for radio, telephony, and 9-1-1 texts. NICE Inform and another part of the NICE NG9-1-1 suite, helps PSAPs (Public Safety Answering Points) manage and synchronize these multi-channel interactions between citizens, PSAPs and first responders, to provide a complete, true record of incidents.
"NICE and Harris have partnered on technology integrations since 2008," said John Rennie, General Manager, Public Safety, NICE. "As a result of our most recent successful interoperability testing, PSAPs can have complete confidence that in addition to reliably recording their P25 and OpenSky radio communications, they can easily retrieve and reconstruct them as well, using enhanced metadata including radio IDs, talkgroup IDs, talkgroup aliases, dates, times and more."
"We’ve relied on NICE for radio recording solutions for our shared regional radio network for four years now," said Richard Rudy, Radio Communications Engineer for the City of Lakewood Police Department Radio Communications Division. "NICE has made the transition to P25 IP-based recording seamless for us, and with this latest upgrade, continues to serve our needs with reliable future-proof recording solutions that make it easy to access and retrieve vital communications when needed."
