WAVE has numerous client applications for PCs, desktop IP phones and smartphones to meet the needs of all types of users. WAVE server components are installed on standard off-the-shelf PC hardware and become an integral part of your IP infrastructure.. And since you may likely have specific deployment specifications, or require programming interfaces unique to how your organization operates, we offer a WAVE SDK to support custom client development and integration.
WAVE Client Applications
WAVE Dispatch Communicator is the industry-leading software-based, VoIP Dispatch Console used in some of the most critical and demanding dispatch scenarios in public safety, defense, and commercial markets. Because its software, WAVE Dispatch Communicator provides organizations with advanced dispatch capabilities at a fraction of the cost of traditional hardware bases systems, requiring only an industry-standard PC on which to operate.
WAVE Desktop Communicator puts extensive communications capability on the desk of every authorized user. Users can gain instant access to mobile workers on two-way radios or PTT services and participate in wide-ranging communications activity by accessing re-configured communications channels and patches assigned by the system administrator.
WAVE Mobile Communicator augments and extends critical communications by enabling smartphones and other specialty purpose devices to securely communicate with any other communication system. With the WAVE Mobile Communicator, smartphone users can simply and inexpensively communicate securely; in real-time, with individuals or groups on other smartphones, two-way radio networks and devices, and not be isolated because of proprietary systems or incompatible processes.
WAVE Connections is our cloud service for secure PTT using smartphones. New users sign-up for an account, create their own private Talk Group, and then invite others to join. Once invited, Talk Group members complete their part of the registration process and install the WAVE Connections smartphone application. PTT capability is then immediately available to all members of the Talk Group, regardless of individual user’s device or wireless provider.
WAVE Communicator for Microsoft Lync extends Microsoft’s Lync unified communications platform by adding direct voice and data communications with two-way radio and smartphone users as they would anyone else in their Lync network – making interactions easier and more accessible. WAVE Communicator for Microsoft Lync appears as a panel within the Lync client and shows what communication channels are available as well as the users location and presence.
WAVE Server Components
WAVE Management Server is used to configure a WAVE system. A collection of WAVE components controlled by a single WAVE Management Server is called a WAVE Domain. As well as providing configuration services for a WAVE system, the Management Server also provides administrative and security services to the WAVE Domain and every attached client application.
WAVE Media Server acts as a processing gateway for streaming audio. Its primary function is to allow non-IP devices, such as two-way radios and analog telephones, to communicate over a WAVE domain by converting their non-IP audio streams into IP and back, as required. In addition to audio processing, the Media Server can provide encryption services when audio is to be sent over public networks such as the Internet.
WAVE Application Development
WAVE Software Development Kit (SDK) is a software toolkit for developers that helps our solution developer partners and customers to build advanced communications solutions that are tailored to meet their specific needs. See the partner solutions section for examples of partner applications developed on the WAVE SDK
