The Recording of a Trunked Radio ID System can be summed up in one sentence:
“Trunked Radio ID Integration is the process of synchronizing Audio Traffic (radio traffic) and Radio Control Data.”
It is that simple. The tricky part is receiving that data. Outlined below are the four industry standards on receiving this Data/Traffic along with Revcord’s radio solutions.
Motorola uses an AIS server which acts as a gateway for the Control Data and a router for the Audio Traffic. The Control Data is sent to the logger via network TCP and the Audio Data is sent via network UDP. Revcord has a program that resides on the AIS server to perform this functionality and has the Revcord Data Synchronization Program residing on the Logger. Revcord has multiple reference sites.
This open standard is provided as an alternative by both Motorola and Harris. It is also the standard for many other radio companies such as EF Johnson. However, both Motorola and Harris do not provide full functionality to the open standard. The Control Data and Audio Traffic is sent via UDP through a network switch on the Radio Network.
Most third party console manufacturers that tie into the various Cores of Motorola, Harris, EF Johnson and others that have performed the integration necessary to provide for the Radio ID information. Revcord has integrations with the most compatible third party console manufacturers to display \ Radio IDs.
Revcord relies on Control Data, either through a tower and a Control Channel Receiver, or through an ATIA data feed for when multiple sites are involved. Revcord is dependent on having analog channel audio feeds. With the advent of the VPM interface of the MCC7500, this cost has come way down compared to buying a radio resource for each analog channel. This is by far the most economical solution in the marketplace today.
Avoid the purchase the AIS hardware or other wire line hardware, a separate computer in addition to the logger.
Avoid the costly Motorola imposed AIS license fee or other manufacturer connection fees.
Avoid the high yearly maintenance costs charged by Motorola, other trunked radio manufacturers, and the logger competition.
Avoid the hassle of coordinating with outside agencies.
Avoid the constant upgrade cycle.
Gain a simple to understand solution that doesn’t need a high priced technician to maintain.
Gain integration between your radio loggings, your 911 phone loggings and your admin phone line loggings. One logger does it all.
Supports P25 (any vendor) phase 1 and phase 2 (Talkgroup Logging Only). Also supports Motorola 3600 baud trunking systems.
Supports any configuration of trunking, system including standalone sites, cores, SmartZone and simulcast.
Supports secure (encrypted) talkgroups.
Supports the logging of private calls.
Logs every talkgroup call for every talkgroup using the trunking site. New talkgroups added to the trunking site are automatically logged at no additional cost.
Guaranteed to log all calls for monitored talkgroups. Logger logs EXACTLY what radio users hear. Single site and multi-site implementations.
Provides local control of the loggings since all equipment is owned by you and is in your building which means no dependency or connections to outside agencies and no fees/ hassles.
No networking bandwidth, leased line charges or agency coordination issues.
