      What is OPSCAN?



 The Olympic Public Safety Communications
  Alliance Network (OPSCAN) is a consortium of
  42 public safety agencies working together to
  address the communications interoperability
  needs of the 6 counties of the Olympic
  Peninsula.
 Funding for Clallam and portions of Jefferson
  County.
       OPSCAN Phases

 OPS-CAN consists of three phases—

   – Phase I—Implementation of a microwave backbone
     around the entire Olympic Peninsula, implementation of a
     network of interoperability gateways and solutions, and
     development of policies, procedures, and training to
     ensure proper functionality and operations
   – Phase II—Implementation of mobile data systems
   – Phase III—Implementation of the long-range plan
     expanded and revised during Phase I
  What will the VoIP Network Do?

1. Communications and Interoperability
2. Utilizes existing state managed OC3
   Microwave and fiber networks
3. Provide expanded access to radio resources
   on the Peninsula.
4. Provide expanded capabilities and features
   for control of radios in individual agency
   networks.
5. Establish a platform for mobile data
   capabilities.
     What have we accomplished?

• Provided a network for local, state, federal, and tribal
  agency use
• Established a shared-maintenance and user fee structure –
  smallest to largest agency affordability
• Considered the largest VoIP network in the U.S.
• Homeland Security (letter to Gov. Gregoire) stated
  “OPSCAN has become recognized nationwide as the best
  example of a system providing interoperability in a rural
  jurisdiction”.
• Award nominations, Webinar participation nationwide,
  regional recognition.
• Ability to serve local agencies and provide a state OC3
  network that leverages state resources and is a platform for
  other systems.
               Next Steps


•   Continue to work with other cities, counties,
    transit, hospitals, etc. to assist with their
    deployment of interoperability solutions at the
    local level
•   Add OPSCAN members/partners
    (More users – less cost)
•   Prepare for PSIC grant application to expand
    OPSCAN to other rural state areas

     Definitions

• VoIP – Voice over Internet Protocol
  Carrying digitized voice over the same
  transport method as is used on the
  Internet. (OPSCAN is the same protocol
  as is used in most consumer Local Area
  Networks (LAN’s), but the network is
  SEPARATED for security reasons.)
     Definitions

• Cross-band Repeater: Interfaces the
  signal from UHF and VHF radios so that
  users can communicate directly between
  bands.

• Patching: Electronic connection between
  two or more communications channels.

 OPSCAN-A
    Interoperability with Crossband Repeaters


• Agencies program Interop channels in radios
• 6-”channels” required
• Always there, ready for use
• Easily identified – “OPSCAN A, B, C, D, E, F”
• OPSCAN F is simplex/direct/car-to-car/short
•      range. A-E are repeater pairs.
• Simple map and instructions for their use
• Can be monitored by Dispatchers
• Recorded at PenCom
• “Patchable” to other channel resources

     WAVE System Benefits


1. Interoperability as just demonstrated
2. Economical digital transport for member
   agencies.
3. Always in service, so always prepared for
   interoperability.
4. Can reduce circuit costs for particpating
   agencies.
5. Open standards VoIP – not a strictly
   proprietary solution.
6. Many network people already familiar with
   Cisco IOS.
     Potential for Expanded Services



1. Already have three server sites, one on
   WSP OC3 micro-wave ring, two on NOANet.
2. Server system has capacity to more than
   double the number of ports.
3. The network establishes an IP platform for
   mobile data capabilities in future.
4. Potential route and site expansions for
   mutual support of facilities in neighboring
   counties.
5. Member agencies can share in server costs
   for data systems (AVL, MDT, etc.)
    Additional Features

1. Support for Voting Systems
2. Supports Harris Simulcast Control System
   (Sequim FD3 rollout soon)
3. Phone Patches
4. Mobile Data Backbone
5. Secure VPN Internet Access for
   Communications (i.e., Hospitals, Federal Agencies, etc.)
   Administration & Maintenance
6. Usage Statistics
7. Site Security
   Intrusion detection & intermittent surveillance
   Equipment performance monitoring
