Cassidian Communications's VESTA(R)/Sentinel(R) 4 NG9-1-1 Call Taking System Enables Interoperability and Operational Efficiency for San Bernardino County PSAPs

Cassidian Communications, Inc. reported that Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in San Bernardino County, Calif. have increased operational efficiency and enhanced interoperability following the implementation of the latest release of its VESTA(R) /Sentinel(R) 4 system. The release of this next-generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) call taking system was tested during the last year in close collaboration with the communications managers for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department (SBCSD) and the consolidated fire dispatch center, CONFIRE. The PSAP operations at Valley Control Center (VCC), Desert Control Center (DCC) and at CONFIRE now have capabilities, including user role and agency selection at login as well as interoperability between PSAPs. The enhanced VESTA/Sentinel 4 system makes it possible to configure applications, displayed information and workflows for each user based on their role selected at login. This allows 9-1-1 supervisors to quickly and efficiently adapt to changing operational requirements, such as unusually high or low call volumes. In addition, the new multi-tenancy/multi-agency capability makes it possible to create virtual 'agencies' within a single VESTA/Sentinel 4 system, assigning specific resources (i.e. call detail records, lines groups, user roles and layouts) to specific agencies. The ability to select an agency at user login gives 9-1-1 budget managers the opportunity to maximize operational benefit from existing resources, enabling them to assist their fellow PSAPs when help is necessary or time allows. Because of its geo-diverse design, the VESTA/Sentinel 4 NG9-1-1 call taking system also allows the main PSAPs at VCC and DCC, along with the secondary PSAP at CONFIRE, to be connected via a wide area network with redundant links. Should one PSAP become unavailable, one of the other centers is capable of running the entire network, providing the county with sophisticated backup, disaster recovery and overflow operations. SBCSD has relied on Cassidian Communications' call taking technology for more than 15 years to serve approximately two million residents across 20,000 square miles. Together the three centers receive nearly 1.2 million calls annually.
