What is a dispatch workstation?
Dispatch workstations, more commonly known as dispatch "consoles", are specialized furniture or desks made specifically for the needs of 911 emergency communication centers. Dispatch workstations are designed to handle multiple CPU monitors to support the work of 911 dispatchers who need to see their CAD software. GIS maps, and other data when assisting callers during emergencies. Dispatch workstations are made of highly resistant materials such as high-pressure laminated work surfaces and reinforced steel/aluminum structures to resist the wear and tear caused by 24/7 use. More often than not, dispatch consoles include ergonomic features such as height-adjustable surfaces for a sit/stand workflow, a personal climate control system, and integrated cable management systems to power the equipment used by operators (CPUs, radios, monitors, task lights).
