Published on

Thanks to TALKBox you can now own a system that will keep your company or group completely in touch with all aspects of communication and data. Business Continuity is no longer a problem when your system includes a TALKBox. All of your networks and systems will now be able to work together.
Portable enough to carried by two people in its hardened, military-grade case. You can move the TALKBox® near the affected area/building to a location of close proximity and plug in services such as a power generator as well as phone and net connectivity via a local hardened infrastructure, nearby unaffected infrastructure, cellular data, microwave or satellite.
The TALKBox® will automatically connect over from legacy phone lines, to VoIP, to cellular in any order you choose. It can even route calls to radio frequencies.

Talkbox® (1)

  1. 1. Meridcom and Centrix LMR announce a majorbreakthrough in interoperable communications. Keep the lines of communication open and fully interoperable during the worst of times
  2. 2. Rumors and technology For the past ten years Talkbox has been something other companies and engineers have spoken quietly about. Each group that would gather whiffs of information that this unit existed and had preformed as promised in test after test. They all hoped that they could offer the same abilities and capacities that they heard this unit could carry. But most believed it was not possible and hard to believe at the prices they had heard.
  3. 3. What we need now The envisioned network would enable a firefighter to view a buildings blueprints on a mobile device, a police officer to stream surveillance video to their vehicle, or allow a hospital to conduct remote diagnostics on a patient from an EMS responder in the field. However, reality is that existing state and local systems are at varying levels of technological maturity. Many jurisdictions will continue to use their legacy networks for mission critical voice. This does not have to be that way.
  4. 4. Is something that works Some will not change because of cost, acquisition timing and existing policies. What is needed is a low cost solution that provides interoperability with systems currently in use around the nation.TalkBOX®Meets that need and more.
  5. 5. Presenting TalkBOX®
  6. 6. TalkBOX® working from thedock in Miami with a 1200 wattgenerator.
  7. 7. What is TalkBOX® TALKBox serves as a virtual switchboard, permitting intercommunication between the various modes and devices that the response team members now utilize. . The TALKBox does not require minutes or hours to establish the necessary intermodal networks. A few clicks of the mouse, or taps on the tablet, and law enforcement, EMS, and other personnel are interconnected to coordinate in the vital business of saving lives and property.Continuity of Communications The internal battery, sustaining one half hour or more of operation, ensures interoperability during those first critical minutes of an emergency. Drawing only 650 watts for operation, and 1200 watts for startup, TALKBox can be maintained indefinitely on a small portable generator.
  8. 8. When you need it or everydayuse TALKBox is the only product on the market that can be pre-programmed with networks necessary to each incident type so when the actual emergency occurs, the appropriate intermodal communities are instantaneously established, permitting multiple simultaneous conversations and alleviating the congestion of a single party line for response. An endless variety of configurations are possible, depending on local needs and practices. TALKBox unlike other emergency equipment is easily integrated into routine operations and rapidly becomes an integral part of daily operations. For example, one county uses the Talk Box on a daily basis in their E911 center to add additional capability including the ability to transfer a cell or phone call to a radio frequency and vice versa. This allows first responder on site to quickly access experts out of county via their radios directly.
