Intelligibility Flexibility
NEXEDGE supports both NXDN digital and analog
modes via a common transceiver technology, which creating a self-paced migration path to accommodate budgetary, administrative, organization and timeline requirements.
®
Conventional Mixed Mode
Current analog and NXDN digital fleets can share the same frequency in Conventional Mixed Mode, continuing service to aging analog fleet radios as new digital radios are deployed. NEXEDGE radios, capable of both conventional analog and digital operation, can talk to both old and new radios. The Mixed Mode operation is available in base, repeat and direct modes in the following bandwidth combinations: 25, 20*or 12.5 kHz analog with 12.5 or 6.25 kHz NXDN (25 kHz mode capable equipment is only available where permitted by government regulations).
Additionally, all NXDN digital modes use the same Class-C power amplifiers and site management equipment used for current analog stations, ensuring high ROI and a wide range of supplier choices. *Europe
Trunked Channel Shared Mode
NEXEDGE trunked system traffic channels can be shared with existing external analog conventional or analog trunked logic controllers, extending service to analog fleets as they transition to NXDN trunking.
Telephone Interconnect System
The Interconnect Adapter (KTI-4), connected to a NEXEDGE Trunked System, converts analog telephone voice to/from digital, enabling two-way communication between a telephone and a radio.
It connects to an analog PABX/PSTN system through analog telephone patch equipment such as the ZetronM30 and M735*. *Availability varies by region.
OAA: Over-The-Air-Alias
A calling unit’s User ID (UID) alphanumeric alias is sent over the air and displayed on the receiving unit’s LCD, so there is no need to program every fleet alias in every radio.
OTAP: Over-The-Air-Programming
The NEXEDGE OTAP Manager software (KPG-150AP/180AP) provides wireless programming for subscriber units in the field. Over-the-air changes to large fleets will result in huge savings by cutting down on extensive travel, labor and fuel costs as well as in lost productivity caused by radio downtime.
OTAP features include:
• Programs Subscribers Over-the-Air • Full & Partial Programming
• OTAP Session Scheduling
• Auto Retries & Pass / Fail Logging • Fail Safe
• Works with all NEXEDGE Subscribers
• Adds Savings for Operators and Customers
