First Responders no longer kept silent in the wake of natural disasters!

Posted by jhadmin

Fort Worth, TX – The OuterLink IRIS Push-To-Talk (PTT) VOIP Radio usage is growing exponentially in day-to-day operations and unaffected when natural disasters wipe out infrastructure. When Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas gulf coast, any communications not devastated by the storm were overloaded with usage by first responders and civilians trying to use their cell phones and 900MHz radio networks. First responders such as Acadian Ambulance had clear and uncluttered voice communications with their dispatch using the IRIS PTT VOIP Radio. When Acadian needed a temporary dispatch center set up on the heels of Harvey, IRIS allowed them to maintain a seamless communications link to their entire aircraft fleet amidst the chaos. "We had to set up a table, computer and video screen on a moment's notice,” recalled Metro Aviation Flight Data Integration Manager Tom Diviney. “Traditional cellular, VHF, and 900 MHz radio networks were either out of service or overcrowded with radio traffic. The IRIS satellite PTT radio gave us clear and consistent communications with our aircraft. It was truly effortless"
