Customer-Story Frequentis

As cooperation partners, Frequentis and stashcat are jointly bringing the control center communication of the future into today.

Frequentis customers can also work with the High Secure Messenger stashcat directly from the user interface of their communication system. All safety-critical processes can thus be handled in a common, efficient system. This saves authorities and organizations with security tasks (Mission critical authorities) valuable time, which they can invest in fulfilling their actual tasks.


In order to ensure the safety of the population, police forces need to communicate with each other quickly. Radio network failures and system overloads in the case of the authorities’ own solutions make it difficult to exchange information without problems. In addition, photos cannot be sent via existing solutions. Digital voice radio alone is therefore no longer sufficient as a means of communication.


Police, fire departments, rescue services and disaster control require communication systems with high availability and special performance features. For example, this system must be reliable, stable and resilient, as well as having a high level of security for the transmission of information and data. Operational readiness must be guaranteed at all times, and the formation of networks of any size must be possible.

For lack of alternatives, civil servants then resort to public messengers from American companies, such as WhatsApp, which, however, turn out not to be tap-proof in crisis situations.

Use Cases
