Zetron Wins 'Hot Product' Award for Innovation in Public-Safety

January 17, 2015  | 

Zetron, provider of mission-critical communications solutions worldwide, announced that it has won Public Safety Communications (PSC) magazine's Hot Product Award for 2014. The award recognizes the year's most innovative public-safety communications products. The award selection was based on recommendations provided by PSC's team of experts at the 2014 APCO International Conference in New Orleans, LA. Zetron has won the award six times over the last seven years.

The award-winning solution includes Zetron's Advanced Communications (AcomEVO) system utilizing the Console Subsystem Interface (CSSI) to integrate with an APCO P25 Phase-II network. It was implemented at the Monmouth County, New Jersey, Sheriff's Department in their Public Safety Center. It is the first deployment in the industry to connect a radio dispatch console system to a P25 Phase-II infrastructure. It is also the first implementation of a non-Motorola dispatch system using the CSSI to interoperate with a Motorola network.

In its announcement of the award, Public Safety Magazine noted that "Zetron has long been an advocate of P25 and a leader in implementing multi-vendor solutions to ensure customers have the freedom and flexibility to take advantage of the benefits open standards offer. Our judges particularly liked the [solution's] customizable graphical interface, updated functionality, and interoperable capabilities."

"We're very pleased to have again been recognized for the innovation of our products," said Zetron V.P. of Product Management, Kathy Broadwell. "The award this year shines a light on the importance of open standards and the critical role they play in helping us deliver the solutions that best meet our customers' needs."
