The ACU-2000 IP Interoperability Gateway adds to the ACU-2000 feature set the ability to digitally converge:
Existing radio systems
VoIP telephone systems.
All of the advantages of the open-standards SIP telephony protocol are brought to your to radio systems and radio connectivity added to your VoIP network.
The ACU-2000 IP Interoperability Gateway is:
The system joins disparate voice communications systems, allowing them to be flexibly connected together, monitored, and controlled over an IP network via an intuitive graphical user interface (ACU Controller software, included).
All of the features of the ACU- 1000, plus the ability to interface with SIP devices and networks
Connect SIP VoIP devices to radios
Two-way radio users have access to features that have traditionally been available only to telephone users, including the ability to directly call telephone extensions, call forwarding, call logging, and call recording
Control a large interoperability system via IP
Connect radio systems at multiple sites across an IP network
Remotely change radio channel or frequency over IP
When used as part of a Wide Area Interoperability System (WAIS), the distributed design ensures continuity of local operations in the event of network failure

The ACU-2000 IP Interoperability Gateway offers a full suite of network capabilities including:
Linking of radios over an IP network,
Control of large interoperability systems via IP,
Remote channel change over IP,
Ability to interface radios via SIP.
These systems can be linked, monitored and controlled over an IP network, and the SIP capabilities allow SIP-based systems or individual SIP endpoints (such as SIP phones or softphones) to be included in the conferences. Customers can employ the SIP communication capabilities in either of two versions, depending on their requirements.
