The VE-PG3 has built-in RoIP, SIP gateway, IP router and IP PBX functions all in one box. As shown in the figure below, the VE-PG3 integrates digital/analog radio sites into SIP and analog phone systems and interconnects calls between the connected users. The CT-24 digital voice converter converts analog audio and G.711μ IP phone codec to the AMBE+2TM codec for the IDASTM radio system. The CT-24 is required to connect an IDASTM radio site with other system users.
A radio user (both IDASTM and analog* radio user) can initiate phone calls using DTMF code and can connect to other users via an IP phone or PSTN line**. Phone users can make individual calling and group calling to the IDASTM radio site. In the analog radio site, called users are subject to the fixed calling configuration of the connected radio.
* Limited to radios with DTMF encoder/decoder capability. **Connection maintained by VOX.
Remote Communicator Software, RC-FS10 (Common to converter and bridge mode)
The optional RC-FS10 remote communi-cator creates an IP-based virtual radio on a PC and works as simple dispatch station. The RC-FS10 can be used with an IDASTM NXDNTM system and analog radio system via the VE-PG3.
External Equipment Connection(Common to converter and bridge mode)
The VE-PG3 has two external equipment connectors for audio input/output and other switching. Public address system, siren, warning light and other external equipment can be connected to the VE-PG3.
