A time and labor-saving solution for MCC 7500 Dispatch Console users

Solution Brief

GADI® — Genesis-Aided Dispatch Interface — enhances the standard features in the Motorola MCC 7500 Dispatch Console to improve dispatcher efficiency and increase officer safety. The GADI suite provides a valuable toolset to existing dispatch centers, or meets functional requirements during the design phase of a new ASTRO® 25 or Dimetra system. GADI client software resides on each console position and communicates with the Centralized GADI Server. A hot standby server is also available for demanding uptime requirements.

GADI Customization Features

Enhanced Emergency Handling

GADI maximizes efficiency by providing a centralized location to manage emergency alarms with just a few mouse clicks.

Unattended Emergencies

If an emergency call is initiated by a unit on an unmonitored talkgroup, it may go unanswered. GADI monitors every emergency call, even those on a talkgroup not currently monitored by a console position. Once an unattended emergency is identified, GADI notifies configured consoles, giving dispatchers the ability to acknowledge and dynamically assign the resource for handling.

Centralized Patching

Create up to 16 predefined, permanent patches on a Centralized Patch Server for lightning fast access. Patches can be accessed, edited, merged and unmerged from any console.

  • Allows defining a set of patches with the following configurable properties:
    • Permanent — automatically activated on startup and monitored to maintain active state if they are dropped for any reason.
    • Editable — determines whether dispatchers can add or remove members from the patch or if the members defined on the server are the only ones allowed in the patch.
    • Visible — on a client by client basis, the central patches can be configured to show up or not.
  • Central patches can be activated/deactivated/edited from any console position that has been given access to the patch, regardless of where the patch was initially activated.
  • Central Patching also provides the ability to merge multiple central patch groups quickly. This works by adding the members of one of the central patches to the group being merged to, and then deactivating the original patch. Upon deactivation, the original group is re-activated and its members are removed from the merged group. This all happens automatically with a single button press.
  • Central patches can be configured to all be set up/hosted on a single console or shared between any number of consoles as desired.

Enhanced Local Patching

  • Pre-define up to 16 patch groups for easy one-click activation of common patches.
  • Link a multi-select, and automatically have a matching multi-select group activated for patches.
  • Setup an emergency on All-Patch members with one click.

Active Patching

  • System-wide active patches are displayed in one centralized location.
  • Active patches are displayed regardless of whether or not GADI is running on the patch consoles.
  • Active Patch eliminates the need to hunt to find the console hosting a resource.
  • All patch information is readily available.
  • All patch member events are logged to Patch Event History for future reference.

Coordinated Call Alerts

Call Alerts are often used to notify fire stations of an emergency. If multiple dispatchers issue a Call Alert simultaneously, the instructions following the Call Alert will not be heard. Coordinated Call Alert manages the call alert, audio transmission, and associated notifications and delays to ensure instructions are delivered (or heard).

Extended Multi-Select Functionality

The MCC 7500 restricts users to three defined Multi-Select groups. GADI expands its capability, providing the ability to pre-define, configure, and manage unlimited Multi-Select groups, each enabled/disabled with a single click. Pre-7.15 systems are limited to three simultaneous Multi-Selects — 7.15 systems (and later) may do up to 16.

Visual Radio Status Indicators

The SideCore software can be configured to change background colors when the status of a radio changes. Each status can be assigned a specific color.

Volume and Tone Management

The Volume and Tone Management feature provides position-specific control of volume and tone in each dispatcher’s headset for selected and unselected emergencies.

Filtered Activity Log

The GADI Activity Log mirrors the features of the Elite console’s activity log, while adding the ability to pre-filter by Radio ID, or by selected activity on demand.

Programmable Footswitch

Need more functionality from the dispatch footswitch? GADI provides three programmable pedals: General TX, Instant TX, or Multi-Select actions. More actions are available.

Radio Activity Management

Get quick access to any radio. The GADI radio list shows the latest status and activity of any radio on the system and enables easy private calls and call alerting functionality.
