Professional mobile radio specialist Simoco will be exhibiting its latest P25 and DMR technology at this year’s APCO Conference & Expo in Anaheim, California, USA.

At the show, Simoco will be displaying its latest range of P25 voting and simulcast infrastructure and terminals, featuring the SB2025NT Simulcast base station, which offers market-leading P25 performance in a robust, reliable yet compact 2U form. With its enhanced resilience and full remote management of base station networks, the SB2025NT integrated simulcast and voting base station is a cost effective system that is both spectrum specific and well suited for a wide area of coverage.

Simoco will also be exhibiting Simoco Xd, its complete end-to-end DMR system that offers high quality, robust communication and advanced functionality with features such as man down and GPS tracking.

The Simoco Xd range consists of base stations/repeaters, mobiles and portables all built around an IP backbone which makes the system an ideal solution for public safety users working in mission critical or hostile environments. It offers DMR Tier II as standard, with a software upgrade option to the Tier III (trunked radio) standard.

Jonathan Bunce, group marketing director for Simoco, said: “APCO is the largest gathering of its kind for the public safety communications community and provides us with an opportunity to reaffirm our position as a leading innovator in DMR and P25 within the US market. We are looking forward to showcasing our latest products at the event and demonstrating how our solutions can assist in mission-critical environments.”

Simoco’s sister company, affini, a systems integrator, will also feature on stand 314 and will demonstrate its unified business critical communications solution, affini Real-Time Connect (aRTC) featuring WAVE.

affini Real-Time Connect is a unified business critical communications solution with a focus on connecting technology which means; connecting  people, devices & systems ; connecting people together; connecting systems and platforms.

WAVE is a Radio over IP (RoIP) software platform that enables radio communications to be transmitted over an IP network, extending communication capabilities beyond conventional land mobile radio (LMR) network boundaries to include smartphones, tablets and desktop PCs connected to wide area networks.

As a complementary ‘next generation’ public safety solution, WAVE provides performance, security and privacy, to mission, business and process critical communications.

Delivering real-time communications capability, WAVE improves the flow of information between users, increasing situational awareness and extending communications reach to assist real-time decision making. WAVE is a tried and tested global defence solution – already transporting millions of secure push-to-talk PTT conversations in the most demanding and life threatening situations.

Commenting on affini’s attendance, CEO Jason Colombo said: “APCO is a great forum for us to be able to provide a hands-on demonstration of WAVE. As a public safety solution, WAVE delivers real-time information to users, enhancing situational awareness. The ability to deliver more information to users across a range of devices, means that more informed decisions can be taken and appropriate responses formulated. WAVE is a tried and tested platform offering an innovative approach to enhance performance and reduce cost.
