C4i brought its Communications-On The Move (C-OTM) field communication system to the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) show.
The C-OTM, which was initially introduced at the APCO show in August, is "a flyaway kit, which is the core dispatch unit condensed into a lightweight case that does everything the desktop does," said Brad Kay, C4i's president.
The case provides a quick, stand-alone command center by using existing communications equipment to connect or dial into the C-OTM, which is run on either battery or cable power.
The C-OTM utilizes C4i's newly enhanced SwitchPlusIP system and like the LTE Picocell CIU fits in the overhead bin of a commercial plane. One of the C-OTM's key features is the simple, intuitive interface that allow an officer to run it from a portable PC.
