JPS Communications, the Raleigh-based subsidiary of Raytheon Company, and Cisco Systems are teaming up to market an integrated communications solution for first responders, military and other customers.

The companies have enabled radio and network devices to exchange information over Internet Protocol-based technology. The solution is designed to help various agencies work together utilizing different devices and networks across multiple solutions.

“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,” the companies said in a statement. “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.”

The joint solution is being demonstrated this week at the International Chief of Police conference in New Orleans.
