Connecting Radio Communications with Data, Analytics, and Mapping The scenario:
- A widespread use of Motorola® 2-way radio by state and local government departments, including public safety and public works, Departments of Transportation (DOTs), utilities and others. The ASTRO® 25 Network has provided a level of crispness and interoperability that is enjoyed across departments and agencies.
- A state or local government that has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars investing in GIS technology to provide mapping capability and better serve the public.
- Public safety departments who have budgeted for cellular service and who have learned that it can tie into the GIS system to allow for an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) program, providing fleet management that saves money and time. This leads to tension.
AVL pays for itself quickly and leverages the already hefty expenditure in GIS, but the Radio users, who don’t have the easy connection that the wireless cellular or internet connection has with the GIS analytics software, are left out. They do not have to be. In fact, there is a solution to integrating radio communications with data, analytics, and mapping to bring the Motorola users into the AVL program and reap the benefits of a good fleet management program. The purpose of this paper is to show that in order to access AVL, you can use your current infrastructure. You do not have to build a new one. You do not have to leave 2-way radio behind!
