Additionally, with the advancement of mobile technology, mission-critical communications are increasingly more fluid geographically. Traditional communications equipment and software (like recorders) usually need to be anchored in a communications center. This means that many of those communications out at remote locations are not recorded. Distributed recording addresses this problem by capturing recordings at the source and, where valuable, copying records to a central or more convenient access point.
Within the IP network infrastructure, it’s very easy to share records across networks. However, mission-critical communications are oftentimes hosted in isolation due to security concerns, or they are analog-only because of technical limitations. One of the benefits of Exacom’s logging recording ecosystem is that we can capture analog audio anywhere in the world and enable those records to be sent/uploaded to another recorder for easy, centralized access.
