Connections

Scout provides access to a variety of IDAS Multi-Site Trunking communication system configurations consisting of handheld radios, mobile units, and repeaters.


Single-Site Trunked

The following diagram shows a single site trunked setup for a Scout Console System with endpoints providing connectivity to IDAS radios.

The Scout Console connects through VPGate, which communicates with an IDAS trunking site over a network that VPGate can access. One repeater functions as the master when communicating with the Scout system. VPGate communicates with the master and is not aware of the other repeaters.



Multi-Site Trunked

Scout supports trunked IDAS Multi-Site Trunking radio systems across multiple sites. The following diagram shows a typical multi-site trunked setup for a Scout Console System with endpoints providing connectivity to IDAS radios.

The Scout Console connects through VPGate, which connects to multiple IDAS trunking sites over a network that VPGate can access. When endpoints are registered through VPGate, the audio can also be forwarded to an IP-capable logging recorder. This applies to endpoints used for group calls as well as endpoints used for private calls to individual subscribers through the console.



Intersystem Trunked

To enable regional communication, Scout supports the linking of multiple IDAS Multi-Site Trunking systems over wide geographic areas.

Each trunked system is linked to the others through IP-interconnected WANs.
