Online, July 14, 2010 (Newswire.com) - RMS-Net is a new digital radio management system from Icom UK that provides organisations with efficient communication within the workforce and improved management of health and safety. The system is designed to be fully interactive, ensuring dispatchers/supervisors are able to monitor and respond to incidents as they occur as well assist in the management of prevention of potential incidents. When used in conjunction with other modern security systems, RMS-NET provides a detailed view of activity and staff deployment in or around buildings, the high street, docks or almost any other workplace, whether local or remote.
RMS-Net integrates desktop PC's, Icom handportables, base stations and talk-through repeaters into a comprehensive yet easy to use management system. A central computer logs all radio traffic onto a central database whilst desktop users stay in touch via their own computer. RMS-Net incorporates IDAS digital technology (as well as analogue or a combination of analogue/ digital) allowing organisations to benefit from the 6.25kHz channel spacing, digitally modulated clear voice and secure conversation.
Based on your requirements RMS-Net offers essential safety features such as Mandown alerts, Loneworker functions and panic buttons. RMS-Net can also integrate with other Icom analogue security systems such as the i-LOC Security Management System or i-READ Guard Tour Management System.
i-READ (Guard Tour Management System)
The I-READ Guard Tour Management System uses a specially adapted Icom radio to scan waypoint badges laid on a predetermined route. This information acts as a time date stamp/proof of patrolling and is sent back to a central radio base station and stored on a PC. In addition voice, text and status messages are recorded at the base PC for audit purposes. i-READ is an ideal tool for managing security rounds, asset control and maintenance, or even to verify personnel performance.
i-LOC (Security Management System)
The i-LOC Security Management System is similar to I-Read but is zonal, covering a wide area rather than a specific location. i-LOC uses strategically placed low power beacons around a building, which periodically transmit their identity. A receiver fitted inside an Icom handportable receives transmissions from the beacons when the user of the portable passes in their vicinity. Then the identity received by the radio is, according to the mode chosen, transmitted automatically or by manual action to the base radio placed in the security office, updating the users position. As with i-READ, the i-LOC radio is capable of voice, text and status messaging.
Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK Ltd said, 'A major benefit RMS-Net is its reporting features. All radio traffic is logged and stored on a central database, making it ideal for real time management control and future resource planning including personnel database management. With the addition of the i-LOC/i-READ software product, the reporting features can provide a real-time view of staff resources deployed in or around an area, providing a vital audit trail for Health & Safety purposes.'
