ASTRO 25 Conventional Network: Evolving ASTRO 25 Conventional Networks to IP Based Connectivity - Providing a Path to Additional IP Based Capabilities
As communications technology evolves to give end users ever more powerful operational capabilities, agencies perform a delicate balancing act between the costs and benefits of upgrading their networks. Many factors can change that balance. Today, leaders in the defense and public safety fields are taking action to evolve their networks toward Internet Protocol (IP) technology. Motorola has a conventional migration path that allows a gradual evolution to an ASTRO 25 Conventional network with IP connectivity. Agencies can gradually expand, upgrade, or replace RF sites, consoles and subscriber devices as funds allow. During the migration period, current system elements co-exist and work with newer IP elements. The result is a flexible hybrid network that continues to leverage prior investments while adding new capabilities.
