Licensing

The direct IP interface between the Scout VoIP Console system and an IDAS™ Multi-Site Trunking system is controlled by software licensing in the Scout system. Review the following information to learn more about the type and quantity of licenses required in the Scout VoIP Console System for an IDAS trunked interface.

Although not controlled by Avtec, FCC licensing for the IDAS trunked radio system frequencies is required in addition to the VPGate endpoint licensing for the Scout system.

A Scout–IDAS Multi-Site Trunking system requires a VPGate license and a separate supplemental license for IDAS trunked endpoints. The following tables list the VPGate and IDAS Multi-Site Trunking endpoint license options and the maximum number of endpoints allowed with each type of license.

  • Base VPGate License — The base VPGate license size represents the maximum number of endpoints that can be active at any one time on a single VPGate. The base license is available in several sizes: 24, 40, 80, or 160 endpoints. To use more endpoints, you need additional VPGate licenses.
