ESChat将公共安全用户升级到Amazon AWS GovCloud,以增强安全性和互操作性

ESChat本周宣布,该公司已将其推送通话应用程序的公共安全客户迁移到Amazon AWS GovCloud平台,此举旨提高安全性,并实现与客户陆地移动无线电系统的更大互操作性

ESChat本周宣布,该公司已将其推送通话(push-to-talk-over-cellular,PoC)应用程序的公共安全客户迁移到Amazon AWS GovCloud平台,此举旨提高安全性,并实现与客户陆地移动无线电(LMR)系统的更大互操作性

“这是令人兴奋的……它看起来很有技术含量,但从客户角度来看,它所能实现的是非常大的。然后,当我们进入第2代产品时https://urgentcom.com/2020/05/15/eschat-josh-lober-highlights-features-in-uncoming-release-of-application/“>ESChat软件升级定于下月发布],这是一笔更大的交易。”

Lober说:“一个用户进入他们的管理门户,必须转到另一个不同的门户网站,一个不同的网址,这是很小的事情。”。“从最终用户的角度来看,这是完全透明的

他说:“我们一直都有GovCloud。“所以,如果有人来找我们说,‘我们需要你的服务,但必须GovCloud上,’这一直是一个选择

Lober说,由于所有公共安全客户都使用AWS GovCloud,可以利用ESChat互通功能(IWF)实现ESChat客户之间以及ESChat用户与传统LMR系统之间的可互操作通信

“它不符合标准,因为我们不是MCPTT,”洛伯说。“但它的功能是一样的,而且它兼容许多接口,如ISSI、AIS和ROIP。它以同样的方式启用了某些功能,但它并没有按照规范[3GPP规范]中的定义来实现这些功能。”

洛伯说:“这种互操作性将未来几年内不断发展。“我们收到了很多请求,不仅来自当前的客户,还来自那些计划未来成为客户的人,他们正准备就他们预计将成为摩托罗拉的新系统进行投标。他们打电话来询问,当他们预先购买了与我们连接的系统时,他们需要从摩托罗拉购买什么

Lober说:“2012年恰好是亚马逊创建GovCloud的一年,但它并没有商业(产品)所具备的所有功能,而且国内只有一个GovCloud数据中心。”。“亚马逊花了几年时间才把GovCloud环境构建到可以做我们需要它做的一切的地方

“与此同时,我们有一些军事客户需要GovCloud上,但他们无法获得所有相同的功能。现,亚马逊已经把他们的产品做出来了,我们也可以做我们的事情了。”

ESChat this week announced that the company has migrated public-safety customers of its push-to-talk-over-cellular (PoC) application to the Amazon AWS GovCloud platform in a move that is designed to improve security and enable greater interoperability with customers’ land-mobile-radio (LMR) systems.IWCE’s Urgent Communications

“It is exciting … It seems pretty techie, but what it enables from a customer perspective is very big. And then, when we springboard into the Gen 2 product [the ESChat software upgrade slated for release next month], that is even a much bigger deal.”

“A user going into their administrative portal has to go to a different portal, a different URL—it’s small stuff,” Lober said. “From an end user’s point of view, it was completely transparent.

By having all ESChat public-safety customers—military, federal, state, local and even some commercial entities in the sector—use the AWS GovCloud platform, ESChat can more simply enable interoperable communications between agencies using ESChat, according to Lober.

“What hasn’t been there is, if they came back and said, ‘Can we interoperate with this other agency who is an ESChat customer?’ the answer was ‘Maybe’ because it only worked if [the interoperating agency also] was in GovCloud. If they were on our commercial environment, which was the bigger, the answer was ‘No.’”

Although ESChat is using the IWF moniker that the 3GPP standard body uses to describe the interoperability feature within the mission-critical-push-to-talk (MCPTT) standard, Lober said the ESChat IWF is different.

With its IWF offering, ESChat provides a cost-effective method for public-safety agencies to let their PoC users interoperate with users of any LMR system, Lober said. Of course, each agency is responsible for signing a licensing agreement with its LMR vendor—something that is becoming an increasingly common aspect of negotiations, he said.

“Because they’ve heard the horror stories, and they don’t want to circle back to their county commissioners and say, ‘Hey, we need another [price figure] to buy an ISSI license, because we didn’t know.’ They want to purchase it up front.”

“2012 happens to be the year that Amazon created GovCloud, but it didn’t have all of the features that the commercial [offering] had, and there was only one GovCloud data center in the country,” Lober said. “It really took a few years for Amazon to build out the GovCloud environment to where it could do everything we needed it to do.
