John Hopkins University Chooses Tyto Athene’s ACUITY® Solution to Assist First Responders

ACUITY® by Tyto Athene is currently being supplied to the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory to assist with their department’s efforts in assisting the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enhancement of first-responder technologies.

The University chose Tyto Athene’s micro data center solution after ACUITY’s participation in the DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate’s Shaken Fury Operational Exercise in 2019. John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory used existing and emerging technologies such as ACUITY for research and standards to identify and address the needs of responders to improve their safety and effectiveness. A key priority of the exercise was to assess the integration of new technologies with the first responders’ existing infrastructure and networking systems.

Tyto Athene will be supplying the customer with an ACUITY hardware system that includes Voice over IP (VoIP) technology, a full suite of Unified Communications systems, and software-defined networking in a wide area network (SDWAN). ACUITY also comes equipped with its Unified User Interface (UUI), which is ACUITY’s built-in localized web service in which users can configure and see the health of the entire ACUITY ecosystem either locally or remotely through a network-connected browser.
