Codan Radio         Cascade  Repeater

   Cascade is a next-generation P25 base station/repeater that offers the only integrated system-in-a-box solution on the market.  This all-inclusive package features two 100W P25 repeaters mounted inside a 4RU subrack complete with network interface and power supply. 

   The Cascade repeater brings to the market simulcast and voting systems, P25 trunking systems (Phase 1 and Phase 2) as well as a wide range of networked repeater solutions.

   Each repeater includes a network interface controller capable of providing voting, simulcast, and P25 trunked network control. By having a built-in simulcast/voting controller in every repeater, the ability to build networks in an affordable manner has never been easier. Simple and intuitive user interfaces allow for easy initial set up and system maintenance.

JPS Interoperability   ACU-Z1 Gateway

   JPS Interoperability Solutions, Inc., the industry leader in communications interoperability, announces its new ACU-Z1 radio gateway.  The next generation ACU-Z1 gateway maintains the modular nature of the company’s signature ACU product, but boasts a smaller form factor, requires less power, can interface more types of communications systems and is operable from any web browser.

   The ACU-Z1 gateway hosts a highly scalable and adaptable audio engine that expands the size, type, and number of interoperability nets that can be created, while also allowing exchange of metadata between various communications formats.

   Another key improvement is the increase in processing power and the advanced capabilities this enables for this initial release and for future updates.
