ORLANDO, Fla., Oct 25, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ — IACP – The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced a significant advancement in the PremierOne(TM) product portfolio by providing multi-agency dispatch and response capabilities to Metropolitan Nashville & Davidson County, supporting its Police, Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Office of Emergency Management (OEM) agencies. The successful transition of the Metro Nashville Emergency Communications Center (ECC) to PremierOne Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) R2.0 was upgraded without disruption to emergency dispatch operations.

  • The deployment in Nashville includes a user interface uniquely designed for mission critical ECC operations, advanced law, fire and EMS recommendations, nearly 20 interfaces to external systems, and a fully replicated disaster recovery backup environment.
  • Additional time-saving features and advanced functionality includes:
    • An integrated work assist area for an enhanced view to vital information
    • Reduced keystrokes to perform critical functions such as updating the status of all units on an incident with a single command
    • A unique client design that allows for 6 independent work areas along with a consolidated view of current activities
    • A more powerful command-line with context sensitive help and agency configurable command definitions
  • Through integration with a Motorola Radio System, PremierOne CAD streamlines field communications with Push-To-Talk (PTT) notifications and unit status updates.
  • With a newly architected interface to Deccan International’s LiveMUM software, PremierOne CAD R2.0 unit updates are now transmitted within seconds versus minutes, allowing real-time guidance for unit move-ups.
  • To date, Nashville’s PremierOne CAD R2.0 has processed more than 100,000 incidents.

PremierOne is among the Motorola Next Generation Public Safety solutions being featured in Motorola Booth #2947 at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference through Oct. 26 in Orlando.
