Hytera & Vernon Public Schools Safety First

In 2012, Vernon Public Schools in Connecticut, upgraded the district’s communications systems utilizing the DMR (1) standard. The system provided uses PD782 portable radios and linked RD982 repeaters. The investment in this
state-of-the-art digital platform has improved school communication efficiency and better secured the safety of the faculty, staff, and most of all, young students.

Vernon Public Schools is comprised of 7 separate school buildings and 1 administration building serving approximately 3000 students. As with any school district, administrators place the security of all individuals as their highest priority; a challenging task considering the number of people spread across eight different facilities. While active shooter scenarios make for terrifying headlines, they are indeed rare occurrences when compared to other school emergencies that also require rapid response. Fights between students, accidents on playgrounds or at gym, disastrous weather-related events (storms, tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes), fires, and health scares (allergic reactions, asthma attacks) are all incidences school administrators face regularly. Also, with hundreds of people passing through the campuses daily, effective crowd control is essential to maintaining order. Add to that large events, such as sporting competitions against rival teams, that pose additional challenges to administrators managing school operations.

North Star Casino North Star Casino depends on Hytera’s secure and rugged digital.

Background

The North Star Mohican Casino Resort, located on 20 acres of land in northern Wisconsin, features a Las Vegas-style casino and a full-service resort with 130 hotel rooms. Other amenities include a spa, several conference rooms, additional gaming space, as well as diverse dining and entertainment venues. The 600,000-square-foot facility employs a staff of over 400, and is committed to providing the highest level of service to its customers in a prompt and professional manner.


After incorporating a new property into its already extensive complex, North Star realized it would have to replace its VHF analog two-way radio system in order to broaden coverage. The analog system was unable to provide the coverage and signal strength needed to effectively handle the communication challenges of its expanding facility. In addition, each of the eleven departments within the organization had its own set of requirements to be considered, such as security and privacy issues. The new system would have to be a flexible, scalable solution that could take them from the present into any future expansion.

Background

St. Vincent's Hospital is one of five medical facilities that are part of the St. Vincent's Health System in Birmingham, Alabama.  Located on a sprawling campus surrounded by numerous multi-story buildings, the hospital faced new communications challenges when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated migration to Narrow banding in 2013. The radio system in place at that time was unable to adequately handle the change, resulting in coverage gaps, signal loss, and  interference between systems and frequencies caused by numerous separate repeaters.  In addition,  new HIPAA requirements regarding Patient Protective Information came into effect, addressing the  security of the use of radios in direct patient care roles. St. Vincent's was looking for a  cost-effective, scalable system that could be easily integrated into facilities that might be
acquired in the future.
