The Port Authority of NSW has installed an Omnitronics Dispatch Management System at its operations at Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay.

The challenge presented to Omnitronics was to work with the Port Authority and develop a system that required a highly configurable, yet simple to use dispatch solution, for managing communications across the many vessels that come into Sydney Harbour and Port Botany on a daily basis. This including cruise ships, bulk goods, container shipping, tugboats and smaller vessels..

Due to the customizability of the Dispatch Console, the system is able to easily and efficiently manage the heavy amount of vessel traffic.

The Solution

A Smooth Installation

The DX-Altus Radio Management System was installed at the central command centre and interconnected via fibre to IPR RoIP Gateways at 5 repeater sites across a wide geographical area.

Key to the success of the system was the customizability of the Alto dispatch console which enabled supervisors to set up the screen to suit their specific requirements and minimize operator error. Additionally, features like simple foreground and background control and Rapid Recall increased operator efficiency.
