Entry Level Software Engineer

Motorola Solutions - Chicago, IL (30+ days ago)4.1

The Dispatch Consoles team focuses on a set of products built for mission-critical operation over public safety communication networks. Dispatch Consoles provide a view into the communications system, with ability to monitor multiple communications channels simultaneously. Radio Dispatch operators and 911 call-takers use the Dispatch Console to communicate with first responders in the field and coordinate incident management among police, fire, emergency medical and other agencies.

Motorola Dispatch Consoles interoperate with a wide array of communications technologies including analog and digital radio channels, tone paging, telephone; and also supports auxiliary connections for sensors, I/O controls and additional peripherals devices such as speakers, microphones, and headsets. Dispatch Consoles bring these elements together in a single product designed to present information from these sources in efficient workflows to help first responders perform their duties quickly and accurately.

Motorola IP-based Dispatch Consoles enable effective, secure communication over public safety communication networks to keep responders connected and informed when it matters most.

Motorola Dispatch Consoles offer public safety and utility agencies integration capabilities to reach across multiple applications and resources for enhanced response coordination. A highly intuitive interface increases ease of use for organizing resources, coordinating a response and communicating valuable information.

Audio processing, encryption, and switching intelligence for dispatch is performed within each software-based operator position, without additional centralized electronics. MCC 7500 consoles function as integrated components of the entire radio system, enabling full participation in system level features such as end-to-end encryption and agency partitioning. A Motorola dispatch console is able to monitor up to 180 communications channels simultaneously.
