Best-of-Breed MCX Ecosystem Showcasing at IWCE 2023

All Softil technology enabled, all interoperable, all compliant with 3GPP Release 17; the MCX revolution started at Softil and is accelerating in public safety agencies and utilities

Tel Aviv, 28 March 2023 — The world’s leading enabler of mission-critical communications (MCX) solutions Softil today announces that several MCX interoperable products developed using its unique BEEHD MCX enabling technology will be showcased on its booth #1867 at the upcoming IWCE 2023 show in Las Vegas (March 29/30).

“MCX solutions are now vital tools for public safety agencies and utilities,” says Sagi Subocki, Softil’s Vice-President, Products & Marketing. “Equipped with the latest MCX tools and used in demanding environments where every second counts, blue-light agencies have become far more productive and are saving more lives each day simply by being able to communicate better.”

Subocki adds: “Vital data, critical-incident videos and much more can now be shared by first responders and between public safety agencies at the push of a button thanks to MCX technology.”

Throughout the show, Softil will give live demonstrations in its booth of a range of blue-chip BEEHD-enabled vendor products all of which have 3GPP open standards-based mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) group communications capabilities:

Specifically, these include:

  • Dual-mode LMR/MCX radios from L3Harris Technologies, a US defense contractor known for its ability to deliver innovative solutions that only a disruptive prime vendor can deliver;
  • LMR/MCX gateways and MCX dispatch capabilities from Catalyst Communications Technologies, a market leader in providing Radio Control over IP solutions to Critical Communications agencies serving public safety, government, utility, education and other markets using Push-to-Talk voice communications;
  • In-vehicle MCPTT communications solutions from AdvanceTec Industries Inc, whose tireless commitment to first-rate design, workmanship and innovation has led it to become the manufacturer-of-choice for many public safety agencies.

All demonstrations will be live over the Southern Linc MCPTT network and will also include Critical Linc MCPTT applications on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) smartphones for public safety agencies and utilities.

Softil’s Subocki summarizes: “These demonstrations show the sheer power of MCPTT communications on global networks and represent the future of broadband public safety communications.”

During IWCE 2023, Softil’s Director of Products & Standards, Anatoli Levine, will present at the morning conference session (March 28) on the subject of “Interoperability as a Key Factor of Successful Delivery of MCPTX Service.” He will then participate in the afternoon panel discussion “Public-Safety Broadband Around the World,” taking place also on March 28.
