Trunked Radio System
The Codan P25 Trunked Radio System provides a compact, low power trunked radio system for customers requiring P25 digital communications to a large number of users from a single site.
The Codan P25 Trunked Radio System is a complete radio system that can be quickly deployed on a temporary or permanent basis without necessitating complex network or console interfaces. The Codan P25 Trunked Radio System builds on the existing MT-4E P25 conventional hardware platform offering a migration path from conventional P25 to Trunked P25 operation.
Facilitates channel sharing dynamically to users instead of dedicated channel assignments
Enables large numbers of users to communicate over limited RF channels
Low power compact solution
The radios are compatible with LTR trunked radio controllers
Each Codan 19” subrack can hold up to five receiver or transmitter modules to minimize the amount of space required
Optional power amplifiers and additional channels can be added for extended coverage
Codan radios are renowned for their low current consumption making them ideal for installations where the availability of power is limited
Small Size – 5 Traffic Channels
There is a market need for a small trunked system capable of offering up to 5 traffic channels to address single site applications for rural regions. The Codan P25 Trunked Radio System is housed in a compact configuration that provides capacity for ~500 users. This is adequate for a small police or fire department in most small cities or to serve any industrial plant (oil & gas, utility) that needs P25. Dependent on antenna location, a single site could serve a community 20 kms in radius.
Codan has a well established and respected reputation in the industry for providing low current products. The ability to extend this into trunked applications is unique to Codan. Since the 5 channel radio uses the same conventional hardware and one channel is always active the Codan trunked radio would consume ~ 25 A @ 12V based on a 30 Watt RF output. This is significantly lower then the competitive trunked offerings and a benefit for rural sites (highways) or temporary deployments where power is an issue.
The small rack space required by the Codan P25 Trunked Radio System enables the entire trunked system to be packaged in a transportable case (Radio, Power Amplifiers, Combining Equipment) allowing for rapid field deployment.
Common Hardware Platform
The Codan P25 Trunked Radio System uses the identically same MT-4E hardware as Codan currently offers for P25 conventional applications. The Codan P25 Trunked Radio System is offered in the VHF, 380-520 MHz, and 700 / 800 MHz bands.
Rural Public Safety Agencies
Rural police, fire and EMS agencies can benefit from a standalone trunked system to provide a cost effective solution to their agency’s need for fixed radio infrastructure. The trunked site can be optimally sized to meet the needs of a small agency, yet have the capacity to easily expand in the future. It can also operate in either a standalone mode or with an IP interface to a dispatch console.
Rural Public Safety Agencies in a State-wide trunked network
For rural police, fire and EMS agencies, the Codan standalone trunked system can provide seamless operation for all users at the remote standalone site without the need for expensive backbone connectivity to the statewide core network. The remote trunked site can be optimally sized to meet the needs of a small agency, yet have the capacity to easily expand in the future. It can also operate in either a standalone mode or with an IP interface to a dispatch console. The system can be configured to support any radio operating on the state-wide network without the backbone network to support roaming.
Rapid Deployment Trunked Site in a State-wide trunked network
For Public Safety Agencies (Police, Fire, Ambulance and other First Responders) a Codan P25 Trunked Radio System configured in a Transportable package offers a Rapid Deployment solution for large scale responses in an emergency. The Codan transportable trunked system can be rapidly deployed anywhere in response to an emergency in an unserved region or in response to the loss of fixed infrastructure due to natural disasters. The system can be preconfigured and tuned to assigned frequencies for deployment at a moment’s notice and is capable of supporting any radio configured for operation on the state-wide network.
Power plants, oil refineries and ports can benefit from a standalone P25 trunked system permanently deployed at their facility to serve a large number of radio users and provide interoperability with local public safety agencies in the event of an emergency.
