Customer Case Study: City of Boston, MA

During the ten days in April, 2013, following the terrorist attacks in Boston, the City of Boston and its surrounding areas leaned on a strong foundation of pre-planning, training and coordination to provide communications to hundreds of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies through extraordinary measures.

Using Genesis’ performance management solutions, it was determined that during the hour following the bombings, there were 50,000 PTTs on the statewide system. Only 21 total busies were experienced during this time; and only 2 of these were long with an average duration 2.1 seconds. None of these busies occurred on the incident’s command and control channel. During the ten days in April after the terrorist attacks, Greater Boston leaned on a strong foundation of pre-planning, training and coordination to provide communications to hundreds of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies through extraordinary measures. We, at Genesis, are proud to have been a part of these efforts.

"We continually use the Genesis system and product suite to manage our system in real time as well as for forensic analysis."
