Raytheon links P25 mobile radio with Zetron dispatch console system


Raytheon Company integrated and tested its P25net land
mobile radio with the Zetron Acom digital dispatch control system to demonstrate
the ease of delivering interoperable communications through the use of open


The test was written according to the Telecommunications
Industry Association (TIA) Project 25 (P25) Console Subsystem Interface (CSSI)
standard to provide customer assurance that these systems will integrate and
perform as required.


“The integration of Raytheon’s P25 and Zetron’s
dispatch control was seamless. And this is just one example of how our open
standards approach can connect to a variety of existing radios and
communications systems,” said Bill Iannacci, director of Civil
Communications Solutions for Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems business.


Raytheon offers an Association of Public-Safety
Communications Officials (APCO) P25 compliant digital radio system used by
first responders and critical infrastructure organizations to enable
interoperable communications.


By taking advantage of a carrier-grade commercial
Internet Protocol platform and a distributed architecture, Raytheon delivers an
affordable, compatible system that meets customers’ needs.


As a systems integrator, Raytheon
is committed to enabling interoperability with products that are built on open
architecture and industry standards, advancing communication capabilities for
first responders.


In today’s budget environment, this cost-effective and
flexible approach allows for customer choice while providing advanced


Raytheon’s open architecture support for systems other
than its own is underscored by these tests, especially considering that
Raytheon markets digital CommTalk dispatch consoles, produced in cooperation
with leading console manufacturer, Pantel International.
