TFT, Alerting Solutions Prepared for CAP
Martinez and San Jose, CA - Sep 30, 2010 - Alerting Solutions and TFT have been providing emergency management agencies and EAS participants with CAP- EAS protocol equipment for a number of years. Equipment already deployed will be capable of upgrade to the new standards and provides a solution for EAS participants to achieve full CAP compliance required by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
In particular, the CAP-to-EAS Model 3320 and the (older) Model 2008 receive CAP-encoded messages from a CAP source and translate it to EAS protocol as audio that can be directly connected to existing EAS decoders. Optionally, it can directly broadcast the alert over the program channel (pending FCC type approval). These units also are capable of reporting back to a CAP server of the broadcast of a CAP generated message. Both can be upgraded by means of the Internet connection to the CAP server.
