Hartford, CT (May 29, 2014) – The Connecticut Convention Center has completed the installment of a multimedia communications system with the assistance of Mutualink, Inc. – a Wallingford-based company. The system provides an interoperable communications platform that enables multimedia sharing of radio, voice, text, video, data files and telephone communications in a secure environment – all in real-time. The emergency communications network will allow the Convention Center to share critical information with law enforcement and emergency personnel, further enhancing the community policing effort.
The invitation-only system gives the Connecticut Convention Center the ability to link other users in the system to see and talk in real time to help make critical decisions. Each participant has control over their radio and other communication resources, allowing them to accept or reject invitations and exit incidents at their discretion. This level of control makes participants such as police departments receptive to other entities being on the Network because all parties choose with whom, when and through which resources they communicate.
“We are excited to have the Mutualink system fully installed at the Center,” states Michael Costelli, General Manager for the Connecticut Convention Center. “With almost 200 events and nearly 400,000 visitors to our building each year, safety is of paramount importance.”
