Redmond, WA, U.S.A., July 17, 2014 – Zetron, RELM Wireless, and Spectra Engineering have completed successful joint testing of Zetron’s Advanced Communications (AcomEVO) console system utilizing the TIA Project 25 (P25) Digital Fixed Station Interface (DFSI) to connect to RELM Wireless and Spectra Engineering’s DFSI-based repeaters and base stations.
The extensive testing confirmed that these solutions working together through the DFSI deliver higher levels of subscriber-unit feature control, including Incoming Status Display, Radio Call Alert (with acknowledgments), Radio Check, Radio Status Check, Radio Monitor, and Radio Enable/Disable.
“Zetron is pleased that our partnerships with RELM Wireless and Spectra Engineering have yielded such positive results,” said Zetron Vice President of Product Management, Kathy Broadwell. “The success of these tests provides further proof that partnering with other manufacturers to create compatible, P25-based solutions offers great value to our respective companies as well as our customers. Everyone benefits when our products become more functional and interoperable and give customers more flexibility in their choice of equipment.”
