ACU-Z1 – Available 2nd Quarter 2019

The next generation ACU-Z1 Interoperability Gateway maintains the modular nature of the company’s signature ACU product, but:

  • Boasts a smaller form factor,
  • Requires less power,
  • Can interface more types of communications systems
  • Operable from any web browser.

Modular, just 2U high, fully IP centric, and loaded with the capable radio interface features you have come to expect from JPS.  Where Tradition Meets Innovation.

The ACU-Z1 Interoperability Gateway hosts a highly scalable and adaptable audio engine that expands the size, type, and number of interoperability nets that can be created.

This  allows exchange of metadata between various communications formats:

  • SIP
  • RTP
  • JPS RoIP

The unit is modular, including an optional backup controller module; highly flexible, with connection capability to all types of voice communications devices, including Smartphones. The ACU-Z1 Interoperability Gateway is fully IP-centric, and possesses significant headroom – ready for the enhancements already loaded into its product roadmap, not to mention the innovative ideas that its users will supply.

Another key improvement is the increase in processing power and the advanced capabilities this enables for this initial release and for future updates.

Truly Network-Centric Gateway:

The ACU-Z1 Interoperability Gateway has an intuitive browser-based GUI for control and monitoring of the system. Operators can even employ their browsers as mini-dispatch stations, using their computer’s sound card to send and receive audio from selected interoperability system endpoints.

This IP-centric nature also allows the companion RSP-Z2 dual channel radio interface unit, as well as additional ACU-Z1 Interoperability Gateways, to be integrated via IP into large interoperability systems, controlled by the highly scalable web-based browser.

Creating these wide area systems does not tie up any modules on the controlling ACU-Z1 Interoperability Gateway, with all input from these many communications devices coming in via IP to the CPM module through an external Ethernet switch. All sources are interfaced via this external switch, including those of the modules installed in the ACU-Z1 chassis itself, rather than duplicating the Ethernet switch function within the chassis.
