  • Implements the DMR AIS standard to support wireline interfacing (direct IP) between C-Soft and DMR repeaters

  • Supports FIPS 140-2 encryption for P25 DFSI conventional wireline interface (direct IP)

  • Provides API/SDK option for enhanced integration with third-party developers (e.g. partners and support customers)

  • Provides enhanced network security and SNMP v3 for IP-224

  • Simplifies ordering of interfaces for IP-224

  • Stocking a full function IP-224 spare requires only one interface part number

  • Provides additional enhancements for serial interfaces
Burnsville, MN, December 2017: Telex is pleased to announce the next generation of its flagship C-Soft dispatch control software and IP-224 radio gateway interface platforms. C-Soft v7.3 and IP-224 firmware v2.3 significantly extend the optional capabilities of the current platforms while retaining their proven reliability, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and user-friendliness.

The DMR AIS interface option utilizes the AIS standard as specified by the DMR Association and provides a direct IP connection between the dispatch system and the radio system infrastructure. A wide range of functions are supported, including alert call, broadcast call, emergency call, GPS, group call, radio check, radio enable/disable, remote monitor, status, text messaging, and more. Supported repeaters include Tait DMR trunking and Hytera conventional. The DMR AIS interface doesn’t lock customers into a single vendor radio solution and enhances throughput of the radio system.

Encryption capability is becoming a requirement of more and more dispatch systems. C-Soft v7.3 supports DES and AES 256-bit encryption utilizing FIPS 140-2 validated encryption module for P25 DFSI conventional wireline interfacing (Direct IP) between C-Soft and P25 repeaters. Users can rest assured their critical communications are secure from end-to-end. No other dispatch software on the market offers this level of secure communications at this price point.

The platform provides an API/SDK option for enhanced integration with third-party developers such as partners and support customers. This allows developers to write interfaces for systems of varying size and/or complexity that allow C-Soft dispatch software to talk with other applications such as that for Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), and other systems. Additional features include main PTT, per-line PTT, talkgroup/channel selection, paging, crosspatch, and more. The encrypted connection supports user authentication and ensures data reliability. With the inclusion of an API/SDK option, customers can enjoy enhanced productivity through linked applications.

The new release of IP-224 Firmware v2.3 changes how our advanced serial interfaces work. Now our standard IP-224 units come with MDC and FleetSync included. All other serial interface options are bundled into a single Advanced Interface Option. This simplifies ordering and enables dealers to keep a single IP-224 on the shelf to cover any interface needed. In addition, the new firmware release supports SNMP v3, ANI for Kenwood NX-5x00 DMR radios, and adds enhancements to network security and improvements to the serial API.

C-Soft v7.3 and IP-224 firmware v2.3 are available now.
