Ensures Cooperative Information Sharing Across Systems and Devices
Bridges Your Land Mobile Radio Systems
The VE-PG4 allows you to bridge almost any modern communications system to Icom’s universe of Network products and more. Interconnect a variety of radio protocols from Icom’s IDAS™ conventional/trunking systems, wireless LAN, analog, P25, DMR systems, and even SIP phones. Enhance and ensure communication for any operation.
All in One Package
The VE-PG4 includes built-in RoIP, SIP gateway, IP router, IP PBX and IP communication terminal controller functions, in one box. In comparison with a similar system combining several devices, installation and administration of the integrated VE-PG4 can be simpler, with less confliction of settings.
Call Recording to a USB Drive
Call Recording to a USB Drive Incoming/Outgoing calls can be recorded to an external USB device connected to the VE-PG4. Up to four recording settings are programmable. The recording call type is selectable from All, Group, and Individual calls. In addition, the Monitor function transfers the received audio data to an intended device.
Microphone Connection for Base Operation
Connect HM-241, optional speaker-microphone to the microphone connector on the VE-PG4’s front panel to enable simple base operation. Echo canceller and noise canceller functions are built-in for full-duplex communication with IP advanced radio system, like the IP100H, IP501H or IP501M.
Position and Status Information
GPS position and status information from the IP501H/IP501M LTE transceivers can be received and transferred to a PC to track the location of the radio users or a user in a vehicle.
*GPS mapping software is required for GPS data.
Remote Communicator Software, RC-FS10
The optional RC-FS10 remote communicator creates an IP-based virtual radio on a PC, and can communicate with land mobile radios, LTE radios, and IP communication terminals through the VE-PG4.
Serial Pass-through Function
The Serial Pass-through function enables you to connect a serial device to the VE-PG4 to extend the communication range between the connected device and a controller PC. The virtual serial port software for Windows® PC is supplied with the VE-PG4.
SIP Server and IP-PBX Functions
The built-in simple SIP server enables you to assign IP phone numbers with extension groups. The VE-PG4 can be connected to external SIP server as a client. The following IP-PBX settings are programmable.
- Voice Phonebook
- DID (Direct Inward Dialing)
- Used with Panasonic KX-UT and KX-HDV series IP phones
- Call log
- Extension presence
- Phone number routing
- Outside line regulations
- Caller prioritization
- External call limiting
- SIP conferencing
Router Functions with VPN Tunnel
The VE-PG4 supports LAN, DHCP client, Static IP or PPPoE connections. The VPN function creates a secure IP tunnel connection over the Internet.
Half-width 1U Form Design
The VE-PG4 occupies only half the width of a 19-inch rack. It can be functionally installed with repeaters, switching hubs and other equipment. LTE (4G)/3G antenna bases with 1.5 m (4.9 ft) of cable are supplied in case antennas need to be relocated for better reception.
Online Firmware Update
The VE-PG4 supports automatic and online firmware update functions, for remote maintenance. Settings can be saved to a backup file, and easily restored.

- Telnet and SSH
- Ping Test and Traceroute Test
- Abnormal condition monitoring, such as LAN port link-down and SIP server registration error
- Administrator password
- SNTP server
- Security slot
