When technology officials at Tampa International Airport wanted to upgrade the Communications Center and Incident Command Center, they chose Kramer. Described as “the Communication Center for the future,” the 2,100-square-foot facility is the heart of the airport.
The Communication Center’s duties include dispatching police, fire, and emergency medical, 911 and airport operations, and monitoring fire alarms, access control systems, and closed caption television (CCTV). The Center also monitors and controls the airport’s automated transportation systems, comprised of monorails, shuttles, elevators, and escalators. Its dispatchers are trained to handle incoming calls and to provide the best possible customer service operations for the 19 million passengers utilizing the airport annually. Throughout the Communications Center, Kramer products distribute and manage video between various computers and television monitors, giving dispatchers clear views of all airport areas. Joe Gambrell, Communications Center Systems Coordinator at Tampa International Airport, chose Kramer products for their flexibility and reliability. “The Kramer products met the different needs we had as we upgraded the facility. I found them to be simple to use and program right out of the box,” Gambrell noted.
At Tampa International Airport, Kramer products keep the communications signals soaring.
