The responsibility for serving and protecting Canada's vast Niagara Region falls on the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS). When NPRS outgrew its previous solution, it looked for a solution with great regional coverage, fast and reliable push-to-talk for first responders and other members of the NRPS whether on a waterway, rural road, or the floor of a busy casino, and the ability to quickly implement real-time administrative change requests.
After evaluating the Bell PTT offering, as well as other major PTT providers in Canada, the NRPS evaluation team selected Bell Canada PTT service powered by Kodiak as the right solution for its members based on:
- the Bell network, Canada's fastest and largest, with coverage throughout the Niagara Region
- the Bell administrative portal that provides the NRPS Communication team flexibility and control, allowing them to make changes to user contacts, group assignments, and communication controls and push these instantly to PTT users
- the Kodiak solution supporting Bell's Broadband PTT, with geo-redundancy, high availability components, AES encryption, and tight integration with the Bell network that delivers the level of security and reliability necessary for mission critical and secured communications
- the wide variety of devices and accessories available with Bell PTT service, making possible the right device and accessory for each NRPS role.
For the Niagara Regional Police Service, the switch to the next-generation PTT service provided by Bell and Kodiak has meant that is officers have instantaneous push-to-talk communications they can depend on, today and well into the future.
