Radio over IP

The Wi-Fi Standard 802.11 has grown massively with popularity over the years and coverage is becoming more pronounced. For businesses that operate within a Wi-Fi area, radio over IP is a great solution where traditional point to point radio communications are limited by building structures that attenuate radio propagation.

Radio over IP uses an Internet Protocol to transfer packets of voice around a network, fairly similar to cell phones as the access points/routers act as masts. Due to the nature of Wi-Fi, RoIP devices require less power to transmit and therefore can be smaller while still having great lasting battery capacity.

The IP100H has some great features:

For expanding and reinforcing coverage integrity throughout the Wi-Fi network, the AP90M access point router will ensure the handset will work in those wireless black-spots. The access point is just like any other router but with one difference - equipped with high gain antennae, the Wi-Fi signals will stretch to further places when paired with the longer aerial on the handset.

Once the wireless setup is complete, for the entire system to function the controller unit (IP1000C) is required. The controller unit connects all the access points to a single point where the voice traffic is automatically controlled. Plus, third-party access points can also be used with the controller. The communicator also acts as a bridge where a dispatchers computer can be interconnected. The Radio over IP network is capable of so much more when linked with the multi-connection controller (VE-PG3).

Remote Communicator

The desktop microphone (SM-25) and desktop PTT microphone adapter (CT-23) are required to talk to RoIP users.

For dispatchers, the remote communicator (IP100FS) software package allows users to use a virtual radio to speak with other users, as a group or by making individual calls, as well as having the ability to send text messages. The software package also enables users to see what radio stations are connected to each access point once a map has been setup.
