?Link Communications unveils the IPR5000, a rugged, water resistant mobile radio providing secure Push-To-Talk (PTT) communications over any IP network. It utilizes cellular 3G/4G, satellite, WiFi and wired IP networks for truly global coverage with seamless operation even between carriers. Provides real-timecommunications to a wide spectrum of people such as oil field workers, delivery drivers, law enforcement, tactical response teams, etc.
The IPR5000 is a revolutionary new radio system with familiar PTT operation. Includes a handheld microphone,internal and external speakers for clear audio, LCD display, a roof mounted antenna, and a bracket for mounting under the dash. Housed in a rugged case, it is sand, dust and water resistant to IP-65.
The IPR5000 automatically selects the least cost IP network available. For example, it will utilize 3G/4G whenpossible and revert to satellite when necessary (least-cost routing), providing secure PTT coverage while minimizing data costs. When wide-area coverage is not needed, Wi-Fi and wired connections enable communications with lower recurring costs. Talk groups can include members located anywhere on the globe using any internet service provider; there are no geographic limitations. Leveraging the public IP infrastructure, the IP radio saves you money by eliminating the need to build and maintain radio sites. It also completely avoids the hassle of dealing with radio frequency licenses and it’s the perfect solution to the FCC’s narrow banding mandate.
In addition to providing PTT communications, the IPR5000 provides GPS-based Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL). You can access AVL data through an interactive mapping web site or even from a iPhone, Blackberry or Android smartphone. The LinkTDS dispatch software integrates mapping with the ability to select and PTT any IPRadio. The IPRadio display indicates the distance and direction to whoever is heard talking.
Cellular 3G/4G models are available for various carriers and protocols (CDMA, GSM, LTE, etc.) and require a cellulardata plan for operation. Satellite communications require a BGAN or similar satellite IP terminal and data plan.
