Gathering accurate information and communicating that information reliably, quickly and securely between key teams and personnel have long been vital aspects of providing effective security services. Communication is often the key to responding appropriately to a broad range of threats in potentially dangerous and harmful situations. The security industry has traditionally relied on two-way radios for their vital communication needs, specifically using land mobile radio services for voice communication. While this has served the security industry well in the past, communications technology has advanced significantly and continues to evolve as do the customers.
The Hydra network uses the all Australian Intelligent Radio Protocol (IRP®) technology to provide instant ‘push-to-talk’ solutions over high-speed broadband networks. Cost effectively deployed, Hydra provides those responsible for guarding the security of property, of individuals and of the wider public more opportunities to deliver better informed security and, ultimately achieve safer environments for all involved.
The Hydra network is at the cutting edge of these advances and continues to help our customers stay at the forefront of the newest developments easily and cost-effectively.
Instant voice communication between command centres and multiple security personnel in the field, either one-to-one or across multiple team members is a basic requirement for the security industry.
Beyond this, the Hydra network communication technology operates over a broadband network to provide reliable, secure, high-speed, high quality communications across voice calls, group messaging, picture messaging and data transfer. This enhanced quality and functionality allows security service providers to utilise the most advanced technology available in this area and maintain safety more effectively and more efficiently. It is now possible, for instance, to easily send and receive critical information instantly in a variety of formats including files and attachments such as plans, images and key documents relating to the particular security scenario at hand. For the overview and central management of security situations, Hydra provides mapping, location based services and monitoring of units and personnel with multiple views and overlays available to enhance the effectiveness and safety of control centre operations.
At the centre of the Hydra network is the all Australian owned, Intelligent Radio Protocol®. In a security setting this provides an ‘always on’ system of communication, allowing for all team members in a group of any size and location to constantly receive and send communications within the group. This is particularly critical to security operations where speed of communication and any subsequent action is vital.
The security landscape is constantly changing, as is the associated communications technology. The Hydra solution is fast and easy to implement and can be customised to integrate with the software in your existing systems. What’s more, the Hydra network is designed to be constantly updated and enhanced as the technology continues to develop in speed, capacity and function. This allows you to futureproof your investment in cutting edge communications and avoids the risk of today’s ‘top of the line’ systems become outdated all too soon.
