IDAS trunking provides an affordable multi-channel digital radio system. Icom offers the new and advanced way of communication across all barriers. Features of IDAS Multi-Site Trunking include;
Distributed control channel
The IDAS trunking uses a distributed logic system which does not use a dedicated control channel. All trunked channels can be used for voice traffic channels to be shared more effectively with a large number of users.
Up to 48 IDAS trunked sites connection over an IP network
The IDAS multi-site trunking can have up to 30 repeaters (RF units) per site and up to 48 trunked sites can be interlinked over the IP network. An IDAS terminal radio user can communicate with other IDAS terminal radio users working under the interlinked trunked sites.
Up to 60,000 Individual ID and 60,000 group ID numbers
In the IDAS multi-site trunking, the combination of prefix ID and individual ID or group ID codes is used as a unique identifier. The IDAS multi-site trunking can have up to 30 prefix ID codes per system and up to 2,000 individual ID codes and 2,000 group ID codes per prefix ID. In total, up to 60,000 individual IDs and 60,000 group ID numbers can be used in a system.
Automatic site roaming
When a user turns on a radio, or moves from site to another site, the radio automatically starts the hunt scan and registers the own ID information to the repeater site. No user interaction required.
The fleet management allows the system manager to control a user group in a fleet. Users can be assorted into up to 5,000 fleets and the system manager can enable or disable the use of the system for any fleet.
Integrated system for clean and simple installation
The IDAS multi-site trunking requires only the UC-FR5000 trunking controller which can be installed into the IC-FR5000 series repeater – no external server and no extra rack space is required.
IDAS multi-site trunking can reject to register an unauthorized terminal radio to the repeater site by using the electronic serial number or individual ID of the radio.
Over the air update
IDAS repeater sites can update terminal radios programmed content with new system information like added channels and new sites over the air without interrupting use of the radio.
Terminal radios can listen to a call of higher priority even in the middle of lower priority on-going calls in the order below. (1) Emergency Call (2) Individual Call (3) Group Call.
SNMP system monitoring
When used with a third party SNMP manager software, the MIB (Management Information Base) of the trunked site can be remotely monitored. The system manager can efficiently manage the multi-site trunked sites over the network.
RC-FS10 Remote Communicator for multi-site trunking
The remote communicator creates an IP-based virtual radio on a PC and works as a simple dispatch. IDAS communication features can be used with the remote communicator software.
- Load-leveling for trunked-out channels
- Restriction control can limit use from the terminal radios in case there is too much traffic.
