“Being a corporate resident of California and a leader in public safety communications for well over 40 years, the CALNENA event is important to our team,” said Bob Freinberg, CEO of Cassidian Communications. “With nearby San Diego as the venue, we have a special opportunity to spend time with many in-state customers, potential customers and technology partners.

Visitors to Cassidian Communications’ booth #205 will see the highly configurable and vastly intuitive user interfaces (UIs) of these critical systems, considered to be a primary building block within the company’s next generation public safety communications platform. This platform is a foundational component of Cassidian Communications’ next generation public safety communications ecosystem, which encompasses 9-1-1 call routing and call processing, mapping, MIS and analytics, emergency notification, P25 land mobile radio and LTE, and managed services, including real-time monitoring and response and disaster recovery.
“The VESTA 4.0 and Sentinel 4.0 NG9-1-1 systems enable public safety answering points (PSAPs) to take a crucial first step on the path toward integrated, geospatial multimedia communications,” said Jeff Wittek, Cassidian Communications’ Chief Strategic Officer. “They also provide our customers invaluable investment protection during this time of rapid technological change.”
In addition to the VESTA 4.0 and Sentinel 4.0 systems, Cassidian Communications plans to demonstrate its Aurora® management information system (MIS) solution, the ORION™ Vela® geospatial application and The Communicator!® NXT™ and GeoCast® Web™ emergency notification products. Representatives will also be on hand to discuss the company’s CORP25 land mobile radio solution, most recently adopted by the city of Montréal, Canada, as well as its long term evolution (LTE) devices and applications.
