IoPST® Solutions
Making Mission Critical Sensors Actionable

WHAT’S A SENSOR?

Any device, person or system that provides real-time accurate information which requires action.

TURNKEY

Mutualink is a turnkey service with installation, training and maintenance included.

Sensor Triggered Integrated


The Mutualink interoperability platform enables seamless, automatic real-time communications and multimedia collaboration within your enterprise and beyond. In times of emergency or business urgency, the ability to respond quickly and effectively depends on up-to-the- moment situational awareness and coordination with the right parties.

Mutualink’s Internet of Public Safety Things – IoPST – solutions provide a powerful intelligent extension to Mutualink’s interoperability platform. Our IoPST solutions integrate with IoT devices, sensors and systems.

The IoPST capability provides awareness that something is wrong. And it instantly connects those who need to know. IoPST provides invaluable “eyes-on” information for assessment, rapid coordination and effective response.

NO NEED FOR NEW EQUIPMENT

Mutualink works with virtually any two-way radio system, PTT applications, telephone systems and analog and digital video systems. This is important because everyday use communication tools are the ones to use in times of crisis.

LEVERAGE LEGACY INVESTMENTS FOR EVEN GREATER RETURNS

Mutualink can inject IoT into any legacy system of sensors, alarms or other devices. Moving beyond extending capital investment, it transforms legacy infrastructure yielding greater returns on investment.

What Can We Connect?


Pretty much anything you can imagine or need connected

  • Hardwired, Wireless and Mobile Panic Buttons
  • Door Alarms, Access Control Systems
  • Gunshot Detection Systems
  • Pressure and Temperature Sensors
  • Chemical and Biological Sensors
  • Wearable Biological Sensors
  • Location Sensors
  • Flood Sensors
  • Radiological Detectors
  • Weather & Emergency Alerting
  • Network Alerts

Connectable to IP & Analog Sensors and Systems

Our IoPST solutions, like our interoperability platform, are designed to connect to any message-enabled or event-triggered system via any standards-based or proprietary interface (.CAP, MODBUS®, MQTT, XMPP, AMPQ, DDS, CoaP).

Failsafe Connectivity & Monitoring

Mutualink understands the importance of reliable connectivity and active monitoring. The IEG is designed to monitor links with the sensor systems with which it connects. When a system is down, an alert can be sent to administrators.

False Alarms – Acknowledgement/ Error Catching

The IEG is capable of receiving more advanced status and alarm messaging, including sending and receiving receipt and acknowledgement messages to validate alerts.

Security & Spoofing

Mutualink through its IP gateways can insulate alarm system messages from spoofing and injections. All messaging can be captured locally and then transformed into a secure, encrypted message path along with encrypted-key endpoint authentication, validating message source and message content integrity.

SMART ACTION

Sensors are only as good as the action that follows. Connecting with the right people to seamlessly communicate,  see and share relevant data in real time allows for informed assessment, accelerated decision-making, and coordinated action. It increases success rates, reduces failures and speeds resolution.

ALARM TESTING IS ONLY 50% OF THE EQUATION. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS THE REST

Desktop exercises are excellent tools to practice for emergencies and other operational contingencies while minimizing disruption. These exercises are virtual and use communications tools with key personnel.

DESKTOP EXERCISES ARE EXCELLENT FOR SENSITIVE ENVIRONMENTS

Desktop exercises are excellent tools to practice for emergencies while minimizing disruption and undue alarm and fear. These exercises are virtual and use communications tools with key personnel. They are especially useful in schools, hospitals and other environments where heightening fear is a concern.

IoT is About Actionable Data


Making Sensors Smart (Analog to IP)

Many enterprises have an array of electrically driven contact sensors. These include access control systems, motion detection, pressure plate and other sensors. Mutualink can affordably transform these sensors into intelligent IP based devices without replacement, upgrading their utility while saving money. By adding critical additional data such as location, sensor type, time, you gain more information and share it in useful ways with your team and beyond.

Making Smart Sensors Smarter (IP to Actionable)

Mutualink’s IoPST system transforms sensors into actionable collaboration and instant critical information sharing tools. By connecting sensors, we transform them from often dead-ended siloes into shareable data events with powerful communications. The Mutualink platform also enables different sensors across separate systems to be shared in a meaningful way, delivering a more complete, real-time picture.

How Can we Help You?

The digital revolution is only as good as its real-world interface. Mutualink is about breaking down barriers and connecting people to people, and information to people. Another siloed IoT system or sensor system only means another manned screen to be monitored. We think IoT is more than that. It’s about getting the right people talking and communicating and acting.

Critical Infrastructure Monitoring and Response. Connect field sensor and monitoring systems for automated communications and a coordinated response. Bring in experts from anywhere in the world with eyes on the situation.

Environmental Health & Safety. Connect environmental and biological sensors to coordinate andresponsetodangerous,unsafeorundesirableconditions. Whetherhuman,foodstocks, temperature sensitive materials, or the like, a quick response often means coordinating with resources and experts to resolve or restore conditions as soon as possible.

Security & Loss Prevention. Connecting local alarms and cameras with global or regional security offices that provide instant assessment, control and coordination to maximize effective response. Extending real-time situational awareness to other locations and peers to increase overall vigilance and readiness.

More Value. More Capability. More Effective.


Helping You Achieve Objectives

Save Money & Time. Operating more efficiently and effectively means manpower and assets saved. Enterprises experience enormous disruption and costs from false alarms.

Calibrated Responses. Mutualink understands the importance of reliable connectivity and active monitoring of connections. Our IoPST solutions are designed to monitor links with sensor systems. When a system is down, an alert can be sent to administrators.

False Alarms. IoPST is capable of receiving more advanced status and alarm messaging, including sending and receiving receipt and acknowledgement messages to validate alerts.

Real World Field Proven

Mutualink gets things that can have a real-world impact done for you. We work with the world’s premier public safety and infrastructure partners who don’t see failure as an option. If it’s mission critical, you can rely on us.

In 2018, our solution was selected with six other technologies from over 400 entrants by the US Department of Homeland Security’s Science & Technology (DHS S&T) Division to demonstrate and prove out smart building capabilities. Mutualink was further selected to conduct a second large-scale, live exercise with George Mason University, the City of Arlington, VA and the State of Virginia, resulting a major success.
