IDAS™ is Icom's digital land mobile radio system using the NXDN common air interface and offers a complete system of handheld radios, mobile radios, repeaters, network interface/trunking controller, IP-based virtual radio, various accessories and a complete system solution.
Use IP to transport radio traffic between sites adjacent to each other or across the country. With IDAS multi-site, IP networking can connect trunked sites or conventional repeaters to create a communication system unbounded by geography.
A significant advantage of the IDAS radio is their ability to operate in mixed analog/digital mode. There are a number of configurations available that enable the radio to hear both analog and digital but respond only in one or the other.
Icom brings a proven approach to digital trunking by providing the benefits of familiarity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness with the complete line of IDAS trunking digital radios.
We learned from our long-distance telephone carriers that digital circuits allowed us to "hear a pin drop"— something the analog lines could never do. Now the clarity of digital technology has found it's way into two-way radios with IDAS.
IDAS allows your company to experience the benefits of digital radio while using your analog channels where they remain. IDAS bridges the systems together so all radios, analog or digital, can talk to one another — a no-compromise, seamless migration.
Digital technology is more efficient than analog, meaning more information can be transmitted in a given bandwidth. The time to switch to digital is here for your TV and your radio system. Icom can help you transition to digital radio now.
