DSC Tech Library
This section of our technical library presents information and documentation relating to Emergency Broadcasting Systems and Disaster Recovery Applications.
Should an emergency arise in your community, our 911 broadcast service can deliver large volumes of calls quickly using thousands of phone lines simultaneously. In the event of a blizzard, wild fire or devastating flood, your community can be notified quickly given specific instructions if an evacuation is required using our emergency broadcasting service. If a dangerous chemical spill occurs in your community, you can target specific areas to call. If a severe snow storm hits your area, your community can be notified of school closings or event cancellations.
Emergency Broadcast Network Call Distribution System
Host and server names reflect the defaults that show up in the login screens (Figs. 1 & 2). The DscACS Data Files Location are where the Passwords & Associates files are located (ACSPasswordsFile & ACSAssociatesFile), as well as a data file used internally to manage Blast distribution calculations and attributes (ACSBlastDataFile).
The number of minutes in which an emergency distribution should be completed is used to calculate the appropriate destination of distributed lists. Also, a maximum number of seconds for acknowledgements from Associates can be configured here.
