The Benefits of Unified Critical Communications: Tait Radio Academy

Unified Critical Communications have a lot to offer you and your organization. It is an approach that is both radical, and deceptively simple. In the fourth lesson of the Introduction to Unified Critical Communications course, we take a look at the benefits of a unified communications strategy, beginning with high level benefits.

Unlike traditional reliance on a single communications technology, Unified Critical Communications combines the strengths of a diverse range of technologies, while mitigating their individual weaknesses. It can:

  • Replace traditional single-technology solutions with multiple communications bearers,
  • Open up the choice of a much wider range of equipment types and vendors,
  • Integrate different networks so that they are managed as one,
  • Deliver communications dynamically via multiple networks, ensuring that communications always get through,
  • Future-proof systems by enabling new bearers and technologies to be adding as and when required.

Unified Critical Communications is not a new technology, but an innovative integration platform.

The basic idea is that various different bearers, devices, and applications can be integrated at the network level to present a consistent, unified user interface and experience. This allows voice, data, video, mobility, and services to be seamlessly unified across a multi-bearer network acing as though it was a uniform managed system.
