Avtec: Scout™ Dispatch Console System

Avtec's Scout™ Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) dispatch console system is aimed at helping railroad dispatchers protect lives and maintain train velocity targets.

Scout is a mission-critical voice dispatch solution with enterprise-wide capabilities that can improve railroad safety, reliability and overall operational efficiencies, according to Avtec.

Equipped with multiple redundancy features, automatic failure capabilities and voice recording functionality, Scout serves a core safety function by playing a key role in train movement, wayside crew and train coordination, rail yard communication, incident investigation and analysis.

The Scout system is used by both Class I railroads and transit agencies in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and Orlando. For more information, visit
