JPS Interoperability Products use Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms to resolve the various problems that can occur when different communications systems link to each other.
The heart of all JPS interoperability products and capabilities is our ACU Intelligent Interconnect Technology, which was first introduced in 1997. ACU Intelligent Interconnect Technology has been specifically designed to provide transparent and reliable communications interoperability between disparate radio systems, analog and digital telephony systems, cellular and satellite phones, dispatch consoles and other audio communication systems.
Today, over 8,800 ACU radio interoperability gateways, in standalone and large region-wide systems, have been deployed in public safety, government, military, and commercial environments around the world.
JPS Intelligent Interconnect Technology incorporates Radio-over-Internet Protocol in many of its product and system offerings. This protocol allows voice communications over non-proprietary TCP/IP networks from one JPS interoperability product device to another, over long distances, or over challenging environments. RoIP communication links settings can give a “relentless” mode that permanently connects with its peer device, and is self-healing. RoIP communications links can be malleable, and dynamically influenced by non-technical operators responsible for managing communication interoperability by using the JPS WAIS Controller software applications.
JPS Intelligent Interconnect Technology RoIP not only strives for reliability, but also employs customer-configurable VOCODERs that allow the link to fine-tune to fit requirements of bandwidth conservation (as low as 16kbps in one direction) or preservation of audio fidelity.
JPS Interoperability Products ACU Intelligent Interconnect Technology can deploy in small standalone interoperable domains that are not dependent upon networks, servers, or computers, and thereby give reliable and continuous communications interoperability. When communications need to manage interoperability over a vast area, ACU systems can use remote control with common local or wide area networks, or even the Internet by engaging standards-based TCP/IP network protocols. Usually these networks are already in place and in operation when ACU systems deploy in a region.
The SIP Digital Telephony Protocol exists in many of the JPS Intelligent Interconnect Technology products and systems. SIP, or Session Initiation Protocol, is a prevalent worldwide telephony protocol in use within many communication platforms, such as dispatch consoles, telephony enterprises, and even in many communication interoperability devices produced by other manufactures. The use of the SIP standards-based protocol in JPS Communication products strengthens our vendor neutrality philosophy towards system integration.
Additionally, all the JPS Interoperability products’ Intelligent Interconnect SIP interfaces follow the Department of Homeland Security Public Safety VoIP Working Group, BSI Core Profile standard. The “Bridging System Interface” (BSI) standard ensures that JPS communication interoperability gateways can share interoperable voice communications with other vendors’ interoperability gateways, bridging devices, and end user units (such as VoIP phones) in an expedient and reliable manner.
