  NX-5000 SERIES FEATURES
 ONE-RADIO, MULTI-PROTOCOL SUPPORT
The NX-5000 Series offers unsurpassed interoperability for a wide variety of users as it supports three digital CAIs — NXDN, DMR and P25 (Phase
1 & 2) — plus FM analog in a single radio. Best of all, a desired CAI can be selected at will, giving you the freedom to migrate at your own pace — whether you are intent on going fully digital, undecided about which digital system to pick, or just wanting to maintain both digital and analog for a while. An NX-5000 radio can simultaneously support two digital protocols plus analog, offering the following combinations: FM/DMR/ NXDN, FM/NXDN/P25, and FM/DMR/P25.
NXDN
FM
P25 DMR
                                                                                                                                                                                   NXDN: The NXDN air interface can fit into the very narrow 6.25 kHz bandwidth using FDMA technology.
Ensuring spectrum efficiency, wide coverage and virtually unlimited scalability, it provides for nationwide expansion: Type-C Trunking Gen2 offers enhanced features, flexibility and performance, linking up to 1,000 sites or 24 networks.
DMR: For simple conventional communications, making use of existing infrastructure, DMR is an excellent, cost-effective solution. Being energy-efficient, it offers longer battery life. And thanks to 2-slot TDMA, it is possible to obtain
2 talk paths within an analog 12.5 kHz bandwidth, thus doubling the capacity. The NX-5000 Series supports
Tier II conventional mode.
P25: This digital CAI ensures interoperability among public safety agencies in North America, Australia and New Zealand. The NX-5000 Series is compatible with Phase 1 (conventional and trunked), and Phase 2 (trunked).
        AUTOMATIC CALL SIGNAL IDENTIFICATION
An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s NXDN, DMR, P25, or FM analog – and transmits in the same mode received. Setting your radio to Mixed Mode allows the radio to wait for a call in both digital and analog modes in a digital/analog environment. Moreover, the new Geographical Zone function allows these radios to operate in any mode – conventional or trunked – in the same zone.
