New Antwerp police command truck relies on Draco tera KVM system
In summer 2015, the Antwerp police put their new mobile command vehicle into use. This high-tech command truck came about by Cofely Fabricom and Antwerp IP service provider Digipolis, in cooperation with AV specialist Crosspoint and connectivity expert and IHSE partner Intronics. Since the system is being used by the police, stability and reliability were the key requirement in this mission-critical installation.
A Draco tera KVM switch distributes a multitude of live video camera images, computer data and videoconferencing services around the two cabins of the vehicle to local controller positions, to aid them in assessing an incident situation and helping them decide on the best and most immediate response.
