Siemens Enterprise Communications and Tiburon, Inc. Partner to Provide Integrated Public Safety Systems
Announcing plans to partner in their solution offerings to provide customers with best of breed solutions in the area of public safety
Siemens Enterprise Communications and Tiburon, Inc. announced today they have entered into a strategic partnership where together they can better serve their customers with a more holistic, end-to-end solution for emergency response and public safety. The combination of Siemens Command and Control solution with Tiburon’s Computer Aided Dispatch system delivers improved communications and more efficient dispatch, helping to reduce response times and improve resource utilization.
Siemens provides public safety organizations their Command and Control Open Communications solution with features including radio caller ID and emergency alerts, as well as better control of vital information and improved situational awareness. All information is channeled to a single central point, where it can be recorded, evaluated and processed with increased speed and efficiency – all in real time. It also leverages the power of fixed mobile convergence – bringing IT, wired and wireless voice and data together over an IP network – facilitating enhanced continuity of operations, improved information gathering and processing, and optimized real-time decision-making.
Serving some of the largest most complex agencies in the world, Tiburon is one of the country’s leading providers of integrated public safety and justice solutions. Tiburon’s suite of products includes computer aided dispatch, records management, court and probation software systems for law enforcement, fire and rescue, corrections and justice agencies. With a reliable, distributed peer-to-peer architecture, Tiburon’s Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system supports dispatching and incident control for law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services.
By combining Siemens Command and Control Communications solution with Tiburon’s CAD system, customers are better able to get the right information to the right people, and the right people to the incident – wherever they are – more quickly and reliably for more effective incident management.
“With Siemens’ focus on emergency communications and Tiburon’s focus on rapid dispatch of relevant resources, combining efforts gives public safety and first response organizations the best of both worlds,” said Dana Rasmussen, President of Siemens Enterprise Communications in North America.
