IP Connection Solution

Repeaters distributed in different areas are connected through an IP network, and different repeaters exchange voice, data and control signaling through the IP network to form a multi-repeater IP connection system. The IP connection expands the communication coverage of the repeater and realize long distance cross area communication. In the IP connection system, application software such as dispatch and network management can be used to improve the dispatch and remote management of repeaters.

Solution

The IP connection system includes master and slave, there is only one master in the system for maintaining and broadcasting the access management table information, and there could be multiple salves in one system. After the slave is powered on, it actively establishes a connection with the master, and establishes connections with other slaves based on the access management table information broadcast by the master.

The master and slave can be distributed in different areas. Most of IP connection system’s network topology is composed of local area network and wide area network. The typical network topology is given below.

Local Area Network





Wide Area Network





Wireless Access



Highlights

  • The IP connection expands the communication coverage of the repeater.

  • In the IP connection system, users of different repeaters can communicate to each other, and radios can roam between different repeaters.

  • In the IP connection system, users can use application software such as the dispatch  and network management to improve the dispatch and remote management to repeaters.

Functions

The IP connection system capacity, functions and related configurations are as follows:

  • Support up to 64 repeaters connection, including 1 master and 63 slaves. The master needs to be configured with a static IP address. The slave can dynamically obtain an IP address. The slave needs to be configured the IP address of the master to establish IP connection with the master.

  • Support IP connection services, roaming, IP access management, remote dispatch and management. IP connection services are those voice, data, alarm and supplementary services that radios get from IP connection. Remote dispatch means using the dispatch software to support voice, SMS, positioning, recording and other functions. Remote management means using the network management software to do the performance scanning, fault diagnosis and control to the repeater remotely.

  • The IP connected repeater must be configured in digital mode. The IP address, port, type (single site, master, slave) of the repeater, and IP access management are configured through CPS software.
