The RIOS Client Software Application for Windows enables system users to remotely control the RIOS Gateway over an IP connection. RIOS allows for multiple RIOS Clients to log in to the RIOS Gateway for permissioned access to pooled radio and IP resources. The resulting configuration offers console-like functionality without the high-dollar cost of dedicated consoles.
The picture above illustrates a RIOS Multi-User Enivornment with RIOS Client Workstation. For this arrangement, RIOS Client Workstations connect via LAN to the RIOS Gateway to and access sixteen onboard radios.
When a patch is created, all RIOS Clients see the patch represented on each individual screen. Permissioned RIOS Clients can monitor, transmit, chat, recall, edit and control the corresponding assets and groups. Moreover, each RIOS Client has the ability to individually select which assets to monitor and where to place the gprahically represented group or element. The resulting arrangement creates a common operating ideal for incident management and multi-agency emergency response. Logon rights and permissions are based on User ID and are configured by the RIOS System Administrator.
RIOS Clients with Multi-User Login requires available RIOS Computer Port Connections for log in access. In the graphic above, a RIOS GUI with six available computer connections is displayed. This particular RIOS Gateway allows for six concurrent computers running the RIOS Client Application to log in to the shared RIOS GUI.
RIOS Multi-User Access is priced based on the number of required seats. The number of seats is determined by the number of required simultaneous users logged into the RIOS GUI. SyTech can offer package licensing for systems requiring several RIOS Computer Connection Ports.
SyTech recommends LAN connections for critical communications; however, secure Wifi can be utilized. Multi-User Access can be accomplished with RIOS Client Workstations, For a diagram of a standard RIOS Radio Interoperability System with RIOS Multi-User Access click RIOS Radio Interoperability System with Multi-User Login.
