Codan Stratus is the first P25/LTE hybrid solution that leverages the strengths of both technologies to provide secure mobile and fixed voice networks. With the power of P25 and LTE, Stratus integrates a VHF/UHF/700-800 MHz P25 repeater, Universal Interface Card (UIC) and LTE modem, linking instantaneously into established networks or creating a new communications network without requiring a hard wired Ethernet connection

Stratus is available as a rugged Tactical Repeater or a Fixed Site solution. Housed in a rugged Pelican™ case, the deployable Stratus Tactical Repeater has the mobility of a subscriber unit in a lightweight, easily transportable infrastructure solution, ensuring complete system and network coverage from any location, whenever you need it. The Stratus Fixed Site solution is a 2RU unit that seamlessly integrates into a fixed network to save on costly leased lines and T1 connections.

In just minutes you can deploy a Stratus network solution consisting of a Stratus Repeater, Power Center and Rapid Antenna. The Stratus network automatically establishes connections with P25 subscribers, Smartphones (with the Stratus app), the Stratus Controller and P25 DFSI consoles ensuring your teams are all kept in the loop.

Connect Stratus to a P25 DFSI Console

The Stratus repeater can be quickly connected to a P25 DFSI console without any setup required by the user. A Stratus will automatically connect into a Local Area Network over the 3G / 4G LTE connection and establish a link with the P25 DFSI dispatch console. The Sierra Wireless cellular modem within the Stratus connects to the network using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) over a cellular 3G or 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, through the Internet, back to the Local Area Network (LAN), where a P25 DFSI compliant console resides. The console ties into all radio communications on-scene at the Stratus repeater location, allowing a dispatcher to listen and talk to the tactical team at the remote site, virtually anywhere in the world.

Stratus Network with multiple repeaters and consoles

A Stratus Network that includes a Stratus Fixed Site or Tactical Controller allows for the routing of P25 digital audio, data, analog communications and control signals between multiple Stratus repeaters and DFSI consoles within the network. Through leveraging existing 3G/4G LTE cellular networks and Ethernet connections, a Stratus Network extends the coverage area for communications to virtually anywhere in the world.

Upgrade fixed radio systems to Stratus

Existing Codan MT-4E fixed site installations can be reconfigured and fully integrated into an existing Stratus Network. With the addition of a few control modules, an MT-4E fixed site will no longer require expensive leased lines or satellite connections; through the Stratus 3G/4G LTE connection, the fixed site can communicate directly into any established P25 network. With the addition of a Stratus Console Gateway, fixed endpoint devices, such as VoIP telephony devices, legacy tone remote consoles and other radio systems can communicate on the Stratus Network.
