Integrated Fixed Dispatching System (IFDS)

The all-connecting command control communications solution

Public safety, energy, transportation and security organizations – all these entities are facing the challenge of managing their operational fleets at the highest level of security, reliability and effectiveness, regardless of the network technology used. However, meeting this challenge is possible only when a state-of-the-art control center is used which enables these highly-complex operations.

Siemens Convergence Creators IFDS is a comprehensive, feature-rich, highly reliable and scalable command, control, communications solution. It is also customizable for all industries with critical communication tasks, as for instance the public sector, transportation and industrial environments.

A control center has to provide a vast number of features to make the dispatching process as efficient as possible, give the operator intuitive access to all the necessary information and functionalities and be easy to operate.
Communication between the control center and field staff has to be reliable and always guarantee the required level of security.

Siemens’ Integrated Fixed Dispatching System (IFDS) is a cutting-edge multi-network C3 (command, control, communication) platform. It easily integrates all network technologies and combines them with a fully integrated Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS) as well as user-friendly geo-fencing features. 
With IFDS, calls to different networks, such as TETRA, GSM-R, PBX, VHF, UHF or analog networks, can be easily initiated in one step. And in just one more step users can be joined together in a conference call by means of a graphical user interface that supports modern touch screens.

Single seamless interface to all communication systems

IFDS is scalable and can be adapted to suit any control environment no matter what the size. It offers a simple, yet powerful interface that focuses on delivering maximum functionality in minimum time.
