Interoperability means being able to communicate during an emergency. With anyone. Anywhere. No matter what device you’re using. It means being able to share live streaming video so the team is well informed. True interoperability means being able to make better decisions at a time when good decisions can be the difference between life and death.

Mutualink’s solution comprises two components: the user interface (IWS) and media gateways (NICs). Our drag-and-drop interface is remarkably intuitive and easy to use. The gateways enable media (voice – radio, telephone, push-to-talk – communications, video, data) to be shared with other partners on the network via the user interface.

Mutualink’s interoperability solutions go with you anywhere, anytime with Edge IWS clients for Windows and mac OS computers,  iOS and Android phones, and iPads.

Edge IWS for Windows and mac OS provides mobile interoperability with the same full set of features as our Interoperable Workstation appliance. On the go, use the Edge IWS application for your iOS or Android smartphone. For classic talk group functionality with the added benefit of PTT video use Edge@Team on your smartphone.

Video and telephone calls can also be shared using Mutualink’s VNaaS and TNaaS – downloadable clients that enable you to bring your Windows computer video into an incident or bridge a telephone call with your or other partners’ radio communication.

Mutualink Edge IWS – for the way you work today.

Interoperable WorkStation (IWS)

Our Interoperable WorkStation (IWS) serves two primary functions: to be the point of communication between entities on the Interoperable Response and Preparedness Platform (IRAPP) network for voice, text and sharing of data files, and to be a control point by which resources may be contributed to incidents. The IWS is available in a variety of form factors, including the IWS Application thick client for those looking to establish, enhance, or improve interoperable communications using existing resources and previously deployed hardware.  No additional hardware is required – the application loads onto your Windows computer.
