Brevard County School Transport Dispatch Upgraded to Omnitronics RediTALK-Flex
The Brevard County School Transportation Department in Florida, USA is tasked with providing safe, reliable, efficient, and friendly rides to and from school, events, and other activities across the Florida-based county.
In the past they had been using RediTALK Dispatch at their central dispatch center to co-ordinate school buses and maintenance vehicles for over 80 elementary, middle, and high schools over an area of over 1,500 sqm.

A Seamless Transition

Minimal Operator Training
The operators at the central dispatch center required county-wide connectivity to four ICOM repeater sites, leveraging Omnitronics IPR100 RoIP (Radio over IP) Gateways.
By using these Gateways, the County could enjoy the benefits of a highly flexible network architecture that could easily grow with their future needs.
When the Transport Department made a decision to add additional ICOM IDAS Channels and Radio Linking (patching) they sought the best solution from their trusted Two Way Radio specialist Terrycomm, an Omnitronics Premium Partner.

Terrycomm, working in close partnership with Omnitronics, recommended the Department upgrade their End-of-Life (EOL) RediTALK Dispatch console to the newer, more versatile, RediTALK-Flex.
The upgrade was an easy process and allowed the Department’s four existing IPR100 RoIP Gateways to remain in place within the upgraded Dispatch system.
The Gateways were also eligible for a firmware upgrade as an inclusion under the omnicare Premium Support Plan. In addition to maintaining compatibility with third party systems, free firmware and software upgrades also help protect against possible cybersecurity attacks, add new functionality, improve system robustness, and may also provide additional diagnostic and useful reporting capability.
The Department now has 4 primary RediTALK-Flex dispatchers, one for each of their 4 bus lots. In addition, 5 Administrator dispatch systems and one Maintenance (Technical Support) Team system were also installed on new mobile laptop devices.
Five Administrators can use their portable license seats as a backup to the main Dispatchers from remote locations. The Brevard County School Transportation Department found the transition to the new RediTALK-Flex radio dispatch software to be “very easy with no downtime and minimal training, thanks to the outstanding support from both Terrycomm and Omnitronics”.
