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.
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.
The NIC is a proprietary edge device that enables ad hoc integration of communication devices including: radio resources, public switched telephone networks, video feeds, IP-Sensory/Video/Telephone Systems, as well as university and K-12 school communications.
The public safety communication tool that’s easy to use, with full voice, video and data sharing in a secure mobile platform.
This Panic Button from Rave Mobile Safety uniquely integrates with Mutualink’s interoperability platform to automatically create incidents with the push of a button. Radio and video resources are shared into the incident based on the customer’s installation criteria. Available for K-12 schools, malls, hospitals and corporate campuses.
The Mutualink VCD-1 converts HDMI to USB to allow any HDMI video feed to be shared into a Mutualink incident on an Edge IWS on Windows or Mac.
The VCD-1 presents itself as a standard video input allowing the user to connect to a drone or any external HDMI video source for sharing into an incident.

We are extremely pleased that Valencia College has fully invested in Mutualink technologies enabling us to view and share critical video/audio intelligence with our law enforcement partners. As a result, real-time decisions can be made on real-time activity.
With the availability of Mutualink college-wide, we were able to immediately observe and hear the audio and video transmissions in real time. Not only could we observe our normal camera feeds, but we were also able to view up-close video feeds from a drone flying near the suspect. These capabilities provided the most clear, real-time video that I have seen in over 30 years of service.
We are extremely pleased that Valencia College has fully invested in Mutualink technologies and were able to share critical video/audio intelligence with our law enforcement partners, so that real-time decisions could be made based on real-time activity. In my experience, Mutualink has proven to be an invaluable instrumental tool for the success of any tactical operation or full scale training exercise.
"Mutualink's personnel and equipment provided interoperability between the public and private sector communication systems involved in the National Governors’ Conference. Secure communications, data and video access greatly contributed to a safe and secure conference. Mutualink's platform served as a force multiplier and worked as promised to enhance our capabilities during the event."
“This is an innovative collaboration tool that spans the entire community. Our schools benefit from the experience our first responders have on the platform. Our goal is to connect with law enforcement more quickly, creating better situational awareness before they even reach the school. We’re also seeing a better way to work between schools.”
“The Mutualink solution has emerged as an essential component to solving public safety interoperability challenges on a national basis. Mutualink is a superior and affordable platform that works. And the proof is in the states and localities that use it.”
