Icom launches the VE-PG4 (radio gateway) in Australia
The VE-PG4 is a versatile RoIP (Radio over IP network) gateway unit, which seamlessly interconnects LMR radios, LTE radios, IP communication terminals, IP phone systems and external devices. In addition to the IP Network (LAN/WAN), the built-in LTE module provides a wide area network communication coverage.
The VE-PG4 comes with the following features:
All in One Package
The VE-PG4 includes built-in RoIP, SIP gateway, IP router, IP PBX and IP communication terminal controller functions, in one box. In comparison with similar systems combining several devices, installation and administration is simpler, with less confliction of settings.
Call Recording to a USB Drive
Incoming/Outgoing calls can be recorded to an external USB device connected to the VE-PG4. Up to four recording settings are programmable. The recording call type is selectable from All, Group, and Individual calls. In addition, the Monitor function transfers the received audio data to an intended device.
Microphone Connection for Base Operation
Connect HM-241, optional speaker-microphone to the microphone connector on the VE-PG4’s front panel to enable simple base operation. Echo canceller and noise canceller functions are built-in for full-duplex communication with IP advanced radio system, like the IP100H or IP503H / IP501M.
Position and Status Information
GPS position and status information from the IP503H/IP501M LTE transceivers can be received and transferred to a PC to track the location of the radio users or a user in a vehicle.
* GPS mapping software is required for GPS data
Remote Communicator Software, RC-FS10
The optional RC-FS10 remote communicator creates an IP-based virtual radio on a PC, and can communicate with land mobile radios, LTE radios, and IP communication terminals through the VE-PG4.
Serial Pass-through Function
The Serial Pass-through function enables you to connect a serial device to the VE-PG4 to extend the communication range between the connected device and a controller PC. The virtual serial port software for Windows® PC is supplied with the VE-PG4.
SIP Server and IP-PBX Functions
The built-in simple SIP server enables you to assign IP phone numbers with extension groups. The VE-PG4 can be connected to external SIP server as a client. The following IP-PBX settings are programmable.
- Voice Phonebook
- DID (Direct Inward Dialing)
- Used with Panasonic KX-UT and KX-HDV series IP phones
- Call log
- Extension presence
- Phone number routing
- Outside line regulations
- Caller prioritization
- External call limiting
- SIP conferencing
Router Functions with VPN Tunnel
The VE-PG4 supports LAN, DHCP client, Static IP or PPPoE connections. The VPN function creates a secure IP tunnel connection over the Internet.
Built-in Controller for the IP100H, IP Communication Terminal (Wireless LAN)
The VE-PG4 has a built-in IP100H IP communication terminal controller function that can control up to 50 IP100H IP Communication Terminals, and IP100FS Remote communicators. The IP100H can send and receive voice and preprogrammed text messages to the other units through the wireless LAN access points. The IP communication terminals are suitable for intra-building communication, which will communicate anywhere your network has Wireless LAN access.
Bridge Connection between Radio Systems
The VE-PG4 interconnects with two or more radio systems, even when the systems are using different bands and different categories. All received audio is bridged to opposing radio system, so a radio user can talk to all connected radio users. The built-in digital voice converter converts analog audio to IDAS™ compatible digital audio.
LTE Transceiver Gateway
By installing a custom SIM card to the built-in LTE module, the VE-PG4 can interconnect IP501H/IP501M LTE transceivers with conventional radio systems and IP100H IP communication terminals. GPS position information from the LTE transceivers can be received and transferred to a PC.
With a VE-PG4 RoIP gateway, the IC-SAT100 can interconnect with an IP phone, IP, LTE, IDAS digital (Type-D multi-site trunking and conventional systems) and analog transceivers.
Multi-site Connection between VE-PG4s
Two or more VE-PG4s can be connected through LAN or LTE (4G) and 3G networks. The communication area can be flexibly expanded, and dispersed radio sites can be connected, regardless of distance or radio system used.
