A front row seat to vehicle performance.
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) is an emerging technology that has recently begun to see applications within the transit industry over recent years. VOIP replaces the standard radio communications with press-to-talk (PTT) capabilities that provides clearer, more direct channels to speak with dispatch without a message share across multiple vehicles. The technology leverages the cellular service used by the installed ITS to manage connections with home base.
SPOT’s VOIP solution represents a clear advantage to transit agencies who seek to improve connectivity and situational awareness between vehicle and dispatch, enhance the clarity and quality of communications, and deliver faster, more precise responses to field-generated concerns.
Easily connect between 2 and 300 operators on a single call with recording and selective muting.
Protect your system with secure authentication protocols to precent access to all logical channels.
Loop in key stakeholders like administrators into calls for improved communication, collaboration, and decision-making.
Assign calls by category (e.g. passenger incident, maintenance issue, traffic accident, etc.) for action and future review..
Streamlined voice communication
Use VOIP to connect with drivers via a vehicle’s cellular connection
Top 10 reasons to adopt the SPOT™ VOIP solution:
- Support for one-way and two-way communication between
drivers and dispatch
- Easy request for talk via RTT or PRTT buttons and throuhgh MDT
- One-to-one and one-to-many voice connection capable
- Route calls to driver headset or interior/exterior vehicle speakers
- Secure connection
- Audio and visual incoming call notifications
- Priorty-based alert and queueing system
- Support for talkgroup patching, multi-selection, caller ID
cross-muting, instant recall recording, passive listening, and more
- Supports group calls of up to 300 simultaneous users
- Seamless integration with CAD/AVL system for multi-group call

Biggest. Best. Number one. These are all words you’ll hear when exploring your options for intelligent transit systems (ITS). While these words may sound impressive, they offer nothing when it comes to solving the specific needs of your transit operation.
SPOT™ is an open architecture system that utilized commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware. This design delivers the foundation for simplified expansion and compatibility with hardware and software systems.
