New NetBoss XT Public Safety Solution is being deployed for the Hillsborough County Florida Sheriff’s Office.

The NetBoss XT Public Safety Solution is designed specifically to meet the needs of critical communications networks and private mobile radio operators to do more with less.

NetBoss Technologies, Inc., (NTI) working in conjunction with Communications International (Ci) is increasing the reliability and uptime of public safety networks by offering a new proactive management solution based on NetBoss XT and designed to fit into limited budgets that are expected to deliver more services for less capital outlay. The solution is being put into operation by the Hillsborough County Florida Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).

HCSO’s secure private network is used by its law enforcement team connecting the hand-held and vehicle radios they use for voice communications to a central computer where NetBoss XT monitors the health and status and generates alerts when a problem is detected so the problem can be addressed before it impacts services the sheriff’s office provides.

Public safety networks can save more lives with end-to-end device management that assures networks perform when they are needed most.

NetBoss XT delivers visibility down to the minute details necessary to ensure that communications systems are working in emergency situations. Problems are identified and fixed in a fraction of the time it took using manual operations. In an industry where minutes save lives and protect property, this is a game changer.

NTI is an established supplier of network management and service assurance solutions to network operators around the world including law enforcement and other public safety and private communications networks. The company’s direct involvement with finding solutions to customer challenges for over two decades helped identify a need in the public safety sector that the NetBoss XT network management software can readily fill.

The NetBoss XT Public Safety Solution is designed specifically to meet the needs of critical communications networks and private mobile radio operators to do more with less. From a single system, HCSO will be able to monitor and manage its communications network, including contact closures, remote terminal units (RTUs), and microwave radio alarms from multiple vendors. The NetBoss XT system will communicate directly with HCSO’s legacy and new microwave radios and provide automatic notifications to technicians, thereby minimizing network outage repair times.

Being vendor independent allows NTI customers to manage a wide mix of equipment from a single platform remotely. In addition, the NetBoss XT Policy Manager provides a constant watch for particular events or alarm durations to automatically notify operations staff of service-impacting conditions.

“We understand how important reliable communications systems and equipment are to public safety and that one call can make a life or death difference. We built our Public Safety Solution to help public safety providers assure citizens and property are protected,” said Jim Odom, President and CEO of NetBoss Technologies “Our engineers looked at the business, services, and physical aspects of Hillsborough County’s law enforcement needs so we could design an optimum solution that fits budget guidelines.”

In concurrence, Mark Stanley, VP Operations at Communications International, said “Our two companies have been able to work as one team with HCSO to design and install a system in which results in savings and efficiency will be measurable in a short timeframe. That’s what we know the public wants and expects.”
