Smart Applications

The APX Next XN is a Smart Radio because it’s loaded with a plethora of Smart Applications  – SmartMessaging, SmartLocate, SmartMapping, SmartConnect, and ViQi Virtual Partner. This suite of advanced software features extend the capabilities of the device, enhancing its utility for public safety professionals. These Smart applications are designed to streamline operations, improve situational awareness, and provide innovative tools for first responders.

This feature leverages cellular broadband technology to enable first responders to connect back to their P25 radio system even when they are outside of P25 coverage. SmartConnect maintains a P25 voice and data communications by automatically switching between P25 and broadband for uninterrupted communication.

It’s a secure and convenient way to share text, images, videos and voice notes across an extended team. If an officer needs to stay quiet or needs information about a call, they can send a message directly from the radio without having to speak aloud. If they need to recognize the suspect or visuals of a structure fire, dispatch can send an image. It’s all quickly and easily accessible via the touchscreen interface, using the on-screen virtual keyboard. With everything securely stored for future reference.

SmartLocate and SmartMapping:
First responders can’t lose track of the big picture: their safety depends on it. But in the heat of an incident, it’s easy to get disoriented or lose sight of the team. That’s where SmartLocate and SmartMapping can help. SmartLocate delivers officers GPS location information every few seconds for accurate tracking. From simple location to detailed situational awareness, SmartMapping is essential for mission critical operations. First responders can switch between street map, terrain, and satellite views for details of their surroundings. They can see the position of other personnel or vehicles arriving on scene – or even locate a fellow first responder in distress. And enabling easy communication with nearby officers is made simple by tapping the map to send an alert or voice call.

ViQi Virtual Assistant:
With ViQi’s assistance, it’s faster and easier for first responders to run routine database queries. Dispatchers can focus on responding to the most critical situations. ViQi’s job is to give first responders rapid responses to keep them safe and effective, all while keeping their eyes focused on the mission at hand.

Combining SmartProgramming with RadioCentral allows radios to be prepared before they arrive and kept up-to-date remotely with zero touch and zero downtime. This integration streamlines the programming process and ensures that your radio fleet can be updated at a moment’s notice.
