VPGate Bundled with MOTOTRBO™ Software

Scout–MOTOTRBO™ Connect Plus, Multi-Site Capacity Plus, and Capacity Max systems require a variation of the base license (SFW-VPG-MTCP-XX). This VPGate bundled license includes the MOTOTRBO™ Connect Plus, Multi-Site Capacity Plus, and Capacity Max drivers with the option of including Frontier. These license bundles are available in four sizes: 24, 40, 80, or 160 endpoints. The following table lists the VPGate license options and the maximum number of endpoints of each type allowed with the license. The model numbers ending in -FTR are Frontier-enabled versions.

Licensing the KMF Feature of the VPGate Advanced Radio Support Application

To enable the KMF feature of the Advanced Radio Support Application, a KMF access license must be acquired. The Avtec Encryption Key Manager cannot connect to the KMF server without the KMF license (SFW-VPG-KMF and SFW-VPG-KMF-SK).

VPGate Drivers

VPGate drivers are licensed by specific categories. There are three license categories for supported protocol drivers: A, B, and not separately licensed.

The following table lists the maximum number of endpoints Category A drivers support per VPGate license.

(1) High Availability SIP endpoints require the High Availability driver. This HA driver requires a supplementary license (SFW-VPG-SIP-HA-XX and SFW-VPG-SIP-HA-XX-SK) to operate.

For both categories A and B, Level 3 is the maximum number of endpoints/drivers that one VPGate PC supports. Any number over the maximum requires additional VPGate PCs and licenses.

Chaining multiple drivers requires multiple licenses. For example, if you chain an Outpost endpoint with a MAP27 driver, it counts as two “A” licenses against the total maximum number allowed.

If you are using redundant drivers, they only consume the license(s) that has already been assigned to their redundant driver counterpart.

The following drivers are included with the VPGate software and do not require an individual license:

  • ANI Alias
  • Audio Forwarding
  • Call Voter
  • Cimarron ANI Decoder
  • Data Forwarding
  • MDC1200
  • Phone to Radio Adapter
  • Outpost Auxiliary Input
  • Outpost Auxiliary Output
  • Radio Function Driver
  • Signal Processing

The MDC1200 driver works with the Outpost device (OUTPOST-2R and SFW-MDC-1) to deliver native MDC1200 capability without external hardware.

Certain drivers require supplementary licenses. The Kodiak driver requires a supplemental Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) subscription license to interface with a Broadband PTT system. The supplementary licenses are sold and deployed in redundant pairs unless otherwise indicated. See “Accessory Model Numbers” for optional model number information on these supplementary licenses.

A 1U rackmounted industrial computer that has been extensively tested for compatibility is optionally available from Avtec. See “Accessory Model Numbers” for optional model number information. Alternatively, resellers or end users can provide their own computers under an existing purchase agreement or to meet a special requirement such as redundant power supplies. Minimum recommended computer specifications are listed in the following table.
