SOPFEU the Wildfire Protection Society for the Province of Quebec, Canada installs the ETC CS-64 mini-SIP-Consoles for their Emergency Operations Teams to access their Land Mobile Radio Systems when positioned at a temporary Emergency Support Center location.
SOPFEU purchased 8 ETC CS-64 VoIP mini-SIP-Consoles for use in the EOC at various incident locations when a wildfire emergency occurs in the Quebec province.
Mr. Laurent Aubray Telecommunication coordinator at SOPFEU stated we need to remote radio communications to operators desks and the CS-64 devices gives us just the flexibility and operator friendliness that we need.
Mr. Aubray’s team determined that a wireless solution would give them the flexibility needed for a temporary solution when using the ETC CS-64 mini-LMR-Consoles when temporary telecommunication trailers or mobile command posts are deployed.
The Team attached a small wireless access point to the ETC CS-64 to provide them with the wireless flexibility they required. Wireless routers are then used to link the CS-64 to the main IT frame of the temporary setup, which houses the gateway and radios that provides the required communication with the firefighters. The small access point operates on 5 VDC with its power source connected to the house system 120VAC mains. The small access point provides the necessary POE power to operate the CS-64 station.
The SOPFEU team houses the now wireless CS units in foam lined carrying cases for easy yet safe transport.
Using the SOPFEU IT infrastructure the CS-64s are now able to access the remote Radio System(s) over the multicast network.
This unique solution is another example of the flexibility of the ETC CS-64 mini-LMR-Console System for increased interoperability in critical applications.
