The Radio Dispatch Solution

Best Suitable Dispatch Option

Essential features that Lea County Electric required to optimize their operation included radio linking/patching, geo fencing and historical tracking from within their 2 radio dispatch consoles, communicating across 6 channels. The solution not only needed to be simple to install but also small enough to fit snugly into their office.

RediTALK-Flex has now been installed on the existing PC at their Dispatch Facility and provides enhanced dispatch functions across the 6 channels. Using DRG200i gateways into the Tait repeaters, voice and GPS data is sent out to repair, home and new installation teams and allows emergencies to be reported and responded to quickly.
