Communication link for distant locations

An IDAS™ conventional IP network can extend your communication coverage. It lets you connect dispersed sites and allows you to communicate like a single site.

Up to 16 IDAS™ repeaters connection over IP network

With the optional UC-FR5000 and CF-FR5000MC, up to 16 IDAS™ repeaters can be interlinked with each other*. An IDAS terminal radio user can communicate with other IDAS™ terminal radio users within the reach of each repeater site and/or a virtual dispatch station on the network.

The IDAS™ conventional IP network cannot relay voice traffic over the IP network if the uplink is analog.

Low bandwidth requirement

By using the AMBE+2™ vocoder compression, the voice payload size of the multi-site conventional system is only about 13kbps* per voice path in 6.25kHz spacing.

Required network bandwidth: 40kbps × (number of UC-FR5000 + number of RC-FS10) or Minimum 100kbps required.

RC-FS10 Remote Communicator

The remote communicator creates an IP-based virtual radio on a PC and works as a simple dispatch. IDAS™ communication features can be used with the remote communicator software.

Application example

CASE1Crossband repeater

Image Zoom

Different agencies might use different bands. For example, a police department might be using UHF while a fire department uses VHF.
An IDAS conventional IP network establishes a crossband repeater system so everyone can communicate with each other.

CASE2Remote base station over IP network

Image Zoom

In base mode operation with an IDAS onventional IP network system, the uplinked voice from IDAS radios will not be repeated to other IDAS terminal radios, but only sent to the assigned virtual radio/dispatcher via IP. The uplink from the virtual radio / dispatcher will be down-linked from the IDAS repeaters. This mode may be used in case communications between terminals is not intended or may be used in a simplex channel system.

CASE3Receiver voting operation

Image Zoom

IDAS receiver voting improves the talk back capability of IDAS handheld and mobile radios. The IDAS networked receivers (where IDAS repeaters’ transmission is inhibited and used as receivers) are distributed to the communication area. Each receiver receives a signal from a terminal radio and transfers it to the repeater site, and the repeater relays the best signal or transfers it to the remote dispatch. The UC-FR5000 has a built-in voting function, so an external voter device is not required.
