A bridge technology enables commercial smartphones to communicate with existing land mobile radio systems

Raytheon INTEROP-7000 enables police, fire and rescue professionals to use commercial smartphones and tablets integrated with existing communications equipment, such as land mobile radios.

“Many in public safety already use cellphones on commercial cellular networks, but these devices are often not part of the broader emergency communications network;” Enabling commercial smartphones to communicate with existing land mobile radio systems will allow public safety officials to use the best device in any situation.”

Twisted Pair Solutions’ WAVE® Mobile Communicator app — which turns any Android™, Apple® iOS®, BlackBerry® and Windows Mobile® smartphone into a multi-channel land mobile radio handset for secure, on-demand push to talk communication — has been integrated into the INTEROP-7000. This provides public safety with an additional method of secure communication that goes beyond the boundaries of its current land mobile radio network.

The system provides customers an easily controlled, cost effective upgrade path to APCO P25 standard land mobile radio systems and broadband communications by providing links between existing and upgraded equipment. Customers can choose when they want to upgrade and what vendor equipment they want to upgrade to. With the cornerstone of interoperability, different departments can utilize different radio systems and be able to securely communicate with each other.

notes:

FirstNet is the nationwide public safety broadband network that was contained within the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012. P25net is fully compliant with the only currently recognized North American land mobile radio system standard, the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials P25 standard.
