C4I launches new Advanced Multi-Interface Interoperable Communications System product

RESTON, Va., 3 May 2012. C4i recently released the latest product in its SwitchplusIP communications suite. The Advanced Multi-Interface Interoperable Communications Systems (AMICS).

The product is a communications hub designed for rapid deployment with a wide range of communication assets, such as tactical Air Defense Systems, Military Air Traffic Control and homeland security tactical response.

The AMICS provides a VoIP based communications system allowing numerous disparate communications systems to be linked together at a particular location, supporting both manned and unmanned operations.

The system helps remove boundaries between differing communication types with features such as Press-to-Talk and conferences available from telephone handsets to both conventional and two-way radios. This product, which comes in a 10RU transit case, is an evolution of C4i's Mobile Incident Response Trailer (MIRT), released at the end of 2011, which provides similar communications system packaged in a towable 6x9 trailer format.

The AMICS format offers flexibility for transportation in vehicles or aircraft and adds redundancy with all core components duplicated for mission critical applications.  The system is can connect hundreds of communications assets at a single site as well as be networked with other similar nodes to provide a distributed system of systems solution.

C4i has delivered its SwitchplusIP VoIP technology to markets such as Air Defense and Air Traffic Control for over six years.
