P25 Trunking Capability Guide

Scout's Wireline Interface to a P25 Trunked Radio System
(CSSI and Privileged, Phases 1 and 2)

Introduction

Avtec recognizes the importance of public safety communication as demonstrated by Scout's support for Project 25 standards. Developed as a suite of standards for digital communications, Project 25 is an important component for most public safety and government agency communication.

Project 25, also known as P25, recognizes the current state of public safety communications and the necessary future direction. The standards couple requirements that meet today's public safety needs with tomorrow's needs by setting a mutually agreeable migration path for multi-vendor, interoperable communication. Scout, Avtec's true VoIP console system, supports P25 Standards with interfaces that provide connectivity to conventional and trunked P25 radio systems, available in both Phase 1's Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) operation (12.5 kHz) and Phase 2's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) trunked operation (6.25 kHz).

Scout’s P25 CSSI interface is qualified with the following radio manufacturers:

  • Etherstack P25 Phase 1
  • Codan P25 Phase 1
  • Motorola P25 Phase 1 & 2
  • TaitNET P25 Phase 1 & 2
  • Airbus P25 Phase 1
  • Airbus Privileged Mode Phase 1 & 2
  • Harris P25 Phase 1 & 2
  • Harris EDACS
  • Harris OpenSky

NOTES

  • A Harris EDACS radio system requires a VIDA Core with CSSI gateway and an EDACS Migration Gateway (EMG) when interfacing to a Scout console via CSSI.
  • A Harris OpenSky radio system requires a VIDA Core with CSSI gateway when interfacing to a Scout console via CSSI.
  • A Motorola ASTRO radio system requires a CSSI gateway when interfacing to a Scout console with CSSI.

This capability guide describes Scout's capabilities in a trunked P25 radio system. For all capabilities common to the Scout system, see the Avtec Scout Consoles Capability Guide.
