JPS Interoperability Solutions’ RSP-Z2 Dual Channel Interoperability Gateway brings SIP, RTP, JPS RoIP, JPS VIA and radio communications together in a versatile and affordable unit built to meet the expectations of today’s rapidly evolving network-centric environment. As an enhancement over our ever-popular NXU-2A (Radio-RoIP) and ARA-1 (Radio-SIP) devices, the RSP-Z2 offers two radio interfaces and multiple protocols in a single package.
The RSP-Z2 is backed by JPS’ decades of experience with voice communications and a reputation for device simplicity and ease-of-use. In keeping with this tradition, a suite of sophisticated DSP algorithms operate at the RSP-Z2’s interface. With any connected communications device, custom interface cables covering over 300 radio makes and models simplify setup, and preloaded radio profiles save time during channel configuration.
Sophisticated capabilities are easy to access and employ via the browser-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) that can be used on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. An optional USB headset provides an operator/dispatcher with monitor or two-way communications with one or both configured channels. The RSP-Z2’s small form factor and its feature set make it a flexible, cost-effective interoperability solution.
Public safety agencies, school campuses, convention centers and festivals – from large to small, every venue requires communications. The RSP-Z2 supports SIP, RTP, RoIP, radio, dispatch, or audio connections from an easy-to-use interface.
Browse to the RSP-Z2 and choose between three straightforward configuration options: Cross-Connected, Cross-Connected with Backhaul, and Independent Passthrough. Simply click one of the three to set up the RSP-Z2 for control of that capability. The GUI makes configuration easy to understand.
An operator using the Z2 Controller can create interoperability nets by drag-and-drop operations on icons that represent each of the system endpoints that are interfaced by the RSP-Z2 units. A Z2 Controller operator can also perform dispatch operations on all endpoints; icons can be set for full two-way communications or monitor only.
College campuses are large and dynamic, with people coming and going all the time. In the scenario below, this college is using the JPS VIA PTToC smartphone application to facilitate communications. Campus Administration is using Talk Group 1, and Campus Security is using Talk Group 2. Members of each talk group can communicate with each other within their respective talk group, and the two talk groups can be patched together when requested.
In addition to the JPS VIA smartphone application, campus security also relies on radios (LMRs). The RSP-Z2 provides a convenient mechanism for patching JPS VIA Talk Group 2 and Campus Security radios; configure one of the RSP-Z2’s channels for radio with a JPS VIA backhaul linked to Talk Group 2 in the VIA server. Although the device types and protocols are disparate, the RSP-Z2 patches them together with ease.
When confronted with an emergency situation, all talk groups in this example can be connected with the area’s public safety services by utilizing the second radio interface on the RSP-Z2. This allows the otherwise disjointed groups to work together effectively.
