VIDA Console Exchange - VCE

Specialized Dispatch Switching Center

The Harris VCE enhances the flexibility, efficiency and economy of the VIDA dispatch solutions. The VCE can operate as a stand-alone switch for conventional systems or as an extension to a VIDA network. The main VCE connects between 2 and 12 conventional channels, while optional remote gateway units can expand the capacity to 24 conventional channels.


VCE Components1

  • The VCE is comprised of a Network Switching Server (NSS), Standard LAN/Wan networking equipment, an Interoperability Gateway and a Regional VIDA Manager (RVM).
  • The Network Switching Server (NSS) routes calls to and from each voice group or mobile data user on a real-time basis.
  • An Interoperability Gateway which provides connection points to analog devices can be centrally located with the VCE equipment.
  • Network Management
  • Each VCE is managed by the Regional VIDA Manager (RVM) which is composed of two software applications: the Regional Network Manager (RNM) and the Unified Administration Server (UAS). The RNM provides management support for the various hardware and software components that make up the network and the UAS provides the capability to define and structure the systems, sites, talkgroups, users and other resources.
