Airbus introduces latest release of Tactilon Agnet for flexible multimedia group communication over LTE
App's new version incorporates geolocalisation and sophisticated functions for commanding officers of public safety and various industries(PresseBox) (Elancourt, )
Generally, Tactilon Agnet facilitates operations of public safety agencies with standard functions, e.g. exchange of pictures and videos, mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT), messaging functions and voice communication.
“We have introduced a special Tactilon Agnet application variant. It runs on a tablet for field commanders of public safety who want to get the full picture of a situation. Tactilon Agnet allows them to follow each ongoing group communication,” explains Eric Davalo, Head of Strategy, Solution Portfolio and Engineering of Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “As a result, Tactilon Agnet enables missions to be carried out more efficiently.” Tactilon Agnet users have all the essential information at their fingertips: they can immediately and securely send photos, data and videos at the push of a button to a control room or colleagues. Apart from public safety, industrial, energy or transportation companies can easily incorporate this app into their Tetra or Tetrapol networks to enhance their secure group communications.
Tactilon Agnet offers full critical connectivity for smartphones. It is also evolving with the introduction of the LTE quality of service (QoS) management. Its mission-critical voice capabilities, such as group or individual calls, are aligned with the release of the international telecommunications standards of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), dealing with MCPTT functions of future PMR networks. The application’s multimedia functions, such as mission-critical data and video over LTE, are based on the principles of 3GPP’s release 14.
Tactilon Agnet’s new capabilities will be presented during the Critical Communications World exhibition at the Airbus stand C5, AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong from 16 to 18 May 2017.
