Raytheon's JPS Communications will collaborate with Cisco in an agreement to market an integrated local and wide-area communications solution. The effort combines the best of JPS and Cisco technology to dramatically improve interoperability for both military and civil customers. During emergency or normal operations, first responders, security professionals and military personnel require diverse communication devices, located at multiple sites, to operate together to share information.

The integrated JPS ACU-2000 IP and Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration System (IPICS) further extend traditional interoperable communications across agencies, suppliers and technology by taking advantage of an open-standards platform.

This collaborative approach will allow a senior official, using his internet protocol (IP) desk phone, to communicate with personnel in multiple locations accessing a hand-held radio, IP device, telephone, cellular phone or personal computer. This scalable technology will provide public sector agencies and enterprises the highest level of efficiency so appropriate resources can be applied to streamline operations and rapidly respond to any incident.

"With the ACU-2000 IP and Cisco IPICS, customers can benefit from JPS' best-in-class radio interface capability and Cisco's proven networking expertise in an open-standards platform," said Keith McDonald, vice president, Sales and Marketing, Raytheon JPS Communications. "This helps enable seamless communications with many devices that have previously not been able to interface with one another, ensuring reliable, real-time, local and wide-area interoperable communications and enhancing operational effectiveness."
