Swift IP Gateway A001
- CORE FEATURES
- DETAILED INFORMATION
This is the right solution if you want to connect one or more remote control (donor) radios located far from the control room.
Most analog radios can be connected to your MOTOTRBO system via IP Gateways (Agents) for smoother migration from analog to digital radios.
You can connect your MOTOTRBO network to other analog or digital platforms using gateways. Each gateway works in conjunction with a control radio and gives you one radio channel. You can then patch these channels to create a seamless integrated environment.
Normally, your radio network must comply with the 60 or 90 ms delay requirement. However, it is not always achievable. If the latency on your network exceeds 90 ms, you can consider using IP Gateways, which allows you to work on higher latencies (up to 300 ms).
The A001 IP Gateway fits in standard 19'' racks, with the control radio embedded in the gateway case.
The hardware has been developed, tested and assembled in our workshop. It means that we are fully responsible for its performance, and can assist you if you have any problem setting it up. It also means that we have these products in stock and are able to fulfill any order at any time, and ensure the fastest possible delivery.

A Game Changing Solution
When you build or expand your radio network, you may face quite a few obstacles that can hinder the deployment. For instance, you may want to add a control radio to the radio network, but this radio should be installed in a neighboring town, which makes it impossible for you to connect it directly to your existing server. Or, you may have non-MOTOTRBO radios on your system, and you need to provide seamless integration. There are many different scenarios where the most appropriate solution is TRBOnet IP Gateway aka Agent.This is a product designed to work with control or donor radios. There are numerous scenarios where Swift IP Gateways can be implemented.
Scenario 1: Remote Control RadioYou may have a local system and a remote control radio that you want to monitor. This remote radio can be hundreds of kilometres away from the dispatcher seat. Unfortunately, it is not possible to connect the remote radio to the server with a USB cable that long. The IP gateway makes it possible to use a LAN connection rather than USB. You can just put it nearby your mobile radio and connect it to your IP network. Each IP Gateway is able to work with one channel (voice or data).
Scenario 2: High Latency EnvironmentThe IP gateway can work with latencies up to 300 ms, which does compare to 60/90 ms recommended by the MOTOTRBO System Planner. If part of your MOTOTRBO radio network is located in such a challenging environment, it can be connected to your server using IP Gateways, one per channel.
Scenario 3: Radio System on Control RadiosIf your MOTOTRBO radio network is based on control radios, you may run into a few problems. First of all, you may not have enough USB ports in your PC to plug all of them into it. On the other hand, a USB cable per se cannot be considered as a very reliable means of connection. This is why the more control stations the more potential points of failure there are in your system. Finally, donor radios for voice channels must be connected to sound cards, each radio to the respective sound card. It is becoming increasingly difficult if you have to plug three or more control stations. Swift IP Gateways do not require USB ports, nor do they need sound cards. The LAN connection is by far more reliable and resilient.
Scenario 4: Analog-to-Digital MigrationLast, but not least. If you decided to migrate from analog to digital, it may take a few years to purchase and install MOTOTRBO infrastructure and effectively replace all the components of the legacy radio network. This means that you can have both analog and digital radio subscribers on your network for quite awhile. At the same time, you want both types of radio users to communicate with each other during the migration period. In this case you can use our gateways to interface your MOTOTRBO radio network to the legacy system. You will require one analog control radio per each analog channel you want to monitor (note that your analog donor radio must be compatible with Swift IP Gateway). The essence of the solution is that you can use cross patch to automatically link digital and analog channels to provide seamless communication across different radio networks.
