Omnitronics, the provider of mission critical dispatch and radio management systems, has announced the completion of tests for its new dispatch interface for P25 radio networks.
The DRG100 P25 DFSI interface has now been successfully tested with three different radios including, the Tait TB9100, Spectra MX800 and RF Technology Eclipse 2.
These tests have shown the capability of the DRG100 to transmit voice and data back to Omnitronics’ DX-Altus and RediTALK dispatch solutions. This not only enables greater dispatch capabilities but also interoperability across protocols, including the capability for phased migration from analogue to P25.
Emergency and blast tones have also successfully been implemented across a P25 network for Anglo American’s Capcoal coal mining operation in the Queensland Bowen Basin using a DX-Altus digital radio management system.
Using the tone encoding technology that forms part of the P25 Phase-II standard, Omnitronics has been able to overcome the difficulties typically associated with sending tones over P25 in digital mode. The resultant tone signal can be reproduced by most P25 radios.
‘We are very pleased to be expanding our compatibility with more P25 vendors and to be enhancing the functionality available to end users. By conducting comprehensive testing and working closely with customers, Omnitronics continues to show commitment to offering robust and interoperable solutions,’ said John Florenca CEO of Omnitronics.
