Raise Safety And Service While Lowering Costs With Mission-Critical Communications Solutions

A Perfect Storm Of Pressing Concerns

Utility companies are heading into a perfect storm. They must keep the power on and the water flowing while keeping their employees and the public safe. While demand is growing and the industry is changing, they are being pressed to cut costs without compromising safety.

And with the rise in cyber attacks and regular threats to network security, the potential for disruption is high. The reality is, utilities must be more responsive to customers, prepare for emergencies and disasters, comply with changing regulations and secure their assets. All while ensuring safety in the field, at facilities, and throughout the community.

Overcome Challenges With Mission-Critical Communications

Utility companies are feeling the heat of another set of challenges. Energy provisioning is being consumerized as customers embrace green technologies, from solar panels to electric cars. Beyond renewables, customers are so comfortable with the online experience, they can switch energy providers with a click.

Environmental mandates to monitor greenhouse gas emissions mount. In less than five years, 20 percent of electric energy must be renewable for U.S. government agencies, the country’s largest consumer. Utilities that don’t comply pay serious fines. Then there’s the frequency and severity of droughts, heat waves, storms and natural disasters.

That’s why mission-critical communications are imperative. Reliable, resilient and secure, an ASTRO® 25 radio network handles the full scope of daily operations and unimaginable disasters. It empowers utilities with greater safety and efficiency, while delivering the continuity of service their customers expect.

ASTRO 25 Mission-Critical Network

The P25 Platform First Responders Trust

ASTRO 25 is the robust, resilient, always available communication network relied on by public safety agencies worldwide. The leading mission-critical platform in over 90 countries and 34 U.S. states, it streamlines interoperability among agencies and neighboring communities.

Because ASTRO 25 is a dedicated system, it helps ensure voice and data is available during emergencies and peak demand. It enables safety-focused applications like geofencing, GPS location tracking and siren alerting. And it minimizes response times with intuitive dispatch solutions and accurate record-keeping of critical communications. ASTRO 25 also paves the way for LMR and LTE convergence with a common platform that reduces complexity and cost.

For daily operations and disaster response, ASTRO 25 provides the interoperability you need to communicate directly with other agencies. If a broken water main requires police to close a road or a power outage needs public safety support, crews can respond more safely and efficiently.

APX™ P25 Portable And Mobile Radios Rely On Serious Safety To Withstand It All

APX P25 two-way radios redefine safety in communication. Every innovative feature and function is designed with input from real users. From its rugged, easy-to-operate design to the loudest, clearest audio, your crews can hear and be heard distinctly above road noise, diesel engines and severe weather. APX stands up to the toughest conditions and most extreme environments to help your personnel and community stay safe.

Keep Service Levels High With Real-Time Voice And Data

Utilities face a complex balancing act. You must meet growing consumer demand, comply with regulatory requirements, while simultaneously controlling costs. How can you be more responsive to customers, prepare for emergencies and disasters, keep track of assets and ensure safety isn’t compromised?

Next-generation communications adapted for your needs can help your operation respond rapidly, manage assets efficiently and ensure safety is a constant – in the field, at the plant, for the community.

Enhance Safety In Harsh Environments And Dispersed Sites

Utilities are critical infrastructure and are key to enabling disaster response. Technicians must make sure electric and gas lines are secured before first responders step in, and restoring power is a race against the clock to maintain order and empower emergency response.

Our solutions are adapted for your needs. You can connect mobile crews and assets to help respond quickly, manage power delivery effectively, achieve regulatory compliance, and bring your community safety back on the grid.
