Cisco IPICS Phone Client ( v. 2.2 or later ) Product Details
Cisco IPICS provides flexible and scalable communications interoperability, enhancing the value of existing and new radios, telephony, and IP communications networks. It takes full advantage of open IP standards and the IP network infrastructure for greater resiliency, scaling, and security, and is part of a complete communications solution for organizations of all sizes.
Cisco IPICS Release 2.2 introduces the serial radio control feature, supporting remote control of EF Johnson radios and iDEN handsets (iDEN being the technology behind Sprint Nextel and other push-to-talk services). Users working from either the IPICS web-based administration console or the IPICS PC-based Dispatch Console Client (PMC) can remotely control radio functions such as secure transmit mode; scan, monitor, and change channels or talk groups; and initiate private (unit-to-unit) calls and dynamic group calls. With Cisco IPICS Release 2.2, the solution can also detect changes in radio state, including talker ID and emergency.
When combining these features with existing Cisco IPICS radio integration capabilities, the IPICS solution provides a flexible dispatch platform that enables dynamic push-to-talk communications between P25, SmartNet/SmartZone, and Sprint Nextel users, as well as any user joining from an IPICS PMC, IP phone, cell phone, wireline phone, or legacy LMR network. While many solutions deliver basic talk group and channel cross-connect capabilities, Cisco IPICS delivers true IP-based dispatch capabilities that are more flexible and cost effective than today's expensive legacy dispatch consoles.
Using IPICS serial radio control, dispatchers can initiate a Sprint Nextel dynamic group call, add a P25 talk group, and add telephony and PC users into a single ubiquitous push-to-talk channel, thereby eliminating traditional dispatch communication boundaries. These dispatch console features surpass even those found on many higher-priced legacy consoles.
As the overall solution director, the Cisco IPICS Server manages user security, user privileges, and radio assignments so that radio resources are available to the right people at the right time. The IPICS PMC provides the IP-based dispatch interface from which dispatchers gain access to the Sprint Nextel and EF Johnson serial radio control capabilities. The IP network provides the infrastructure that removes boundaries between the different radio networks, essentially creating a LMR push-to-talk system that supports P25, Sprint Nextel, SmartNet/SmartZone, and analog and digital radios (e.g., UHF, VHF, 700-800 MHz), as well as new nontraditional telephony users.
