Zetron is offering a new DMR-based console interface for its Acom and MAX Dispatch systems. Engineered in conjunction with Tait Communications, the new interface further extends the ability of Zetron products to interoperate with open-standards-based networks and equipment.
Redmond, WA, U.S.A., September 17, 2012― Zetron, a leading provider of mission-critical communications solutions worldwide, announced that its new, DMR-based interface is now available. This is the first multi-vendor console interface able to connect to a standards-based DMR Tier-III trunked network. It was engineered in conjunction with Tait Communications, and is designed to work with Zetron's Advanced Communication (Acom) and MAX Dispatch systems.
Zetron products already support Project 25 (P25) and Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) standards. Thus, the new DMR-based interface extends even further Zetron's support for open standards-based networks and equipment.
As Category 1 DMR Association members, Zetron and Tait are both working on the Applications Interface Specification (AIS) that defines the standard for interfacing to conventional and trunked networks that are DMR-standards based.
"Zetron's joint effort with Tait to create a DMR-based interface is yet another demonstration of our commitment to open standards and the development products that offer our customers interoperability, cost-effectiveness, and choice," said Zetron President and CEO, Ellen O'Hara.
For over 30 years, Zetron has been providing mission-critical communications solutions to customers in public safety, transportation, utilities, manufacturing, healthcare and business. With offices in the U.S.A., U.K., Australia and numerous field locations, Zetron supports a worldwide network of resellers, system integrators and distributors. This gives Zetron a global reach as well as a local presence in the regions it serves. Zetron is a wholly owned subsidiary of JVC Kenwood Corporation. For more information, visit: www.zetron.com.
