Powertrunk Successfully Tests Project 25 Land Mobile Radio Interoperability Over ISSI
Test proves PowerTrunk25 is interoperable with other vendors’ P25 LMR systems at advanced functionality levels
New York City, NY —March 11, 2010 – PowerTrunk™ Inc. a global leader in Land Mobile Radio (LMR) design, manufacture and implementation successfully completed a multi-vendor interoperability test. The test demonstrates that the PowerTrunk25 land mobile radio system interoperates with other vendors’ P25 equipment at advanced functionality levels while maintaining a high-quality audio connection.
Project 25 Inter-RF Subsystem Interface (P25 ISSI) wireline interoperability was achieved using each manufacturer’s P25 ISSI gateways. An IP connection was established via a virtual private network (VPN) between PowerTrunk’s parent company in Zaragoza, Spain and Motorola offices in Schaumburg, IL. The systems communicated over ISSI interfaces to execute group calls and emergency calls from P25 handhelds in each of the two locations. The connection was easily established with clear and crisp audio quality in both directions. Other vendors participating in the ISSI interoperability test event included: EADS, Etherstack, Harris, Motorola, Raytheon and Tait.
“To ensure interoperability, the PowerTrunk25 LMR system is 100% adherent to P25 standards,” said Jose Martin, COO of PowerTrunk. “The success of the recent ISSI test clearly demonstrates our support of the standards and the system’s reliable interconnectivity with other vendors’ equipment.”
The PowerTrunk25 ISSI implementation is simple and cost effective. The Ethernet IP architecture requires no conversion or transcoding; nor do agencies need to purchase or install the ISSI gateways required by non-100% Ethernet IP networks. For PowerTrunk25 users this represents higher reliability, easier scalability and lower hardware costs.
P25 ISSI enables a superior level of public safety communications by providing a common standardized interface connecting multiple disparate trunked P25 networks at the network layer. Radios and networks from different manufacturers can safely transmit digitally encrypted voice over the ISSI interface. Users will be able to roam beyond their coverage area across unconnected networks without losing connection with their home network and dispatchers – a significant improvement in wireline interoperability. Now dispatchers can monitor and maintain communications with users even while they are roaming.
