The ACU-2000 IP Interoperability Gateway with twelve ports provides true convergence of Local Interoperability, IP communications and control, and SIP.
You can bring all the advantages of the open-standards SIP protocol to your radio systems and add radio functionality to your network.
The ACU-2000 IP Interoperability Gateway adds to the ACU-2000 feature set the ability to digitally converge:
- Existing radio systems
- VoIP telephones,
- 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:
- Completely scalable,
- Field configurable.
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.
