TECHNICAL CONSULTING SERVICES

Radio Systems Marketing provides technical consulting services for interoperability requirement analysis and mobile radio system design. In addition to Interoperability, RSM specializes in conventional voice, trunked voice and advanced mobile data and mobile computing communications systems.

Voice Radio Systems

We specialize on the development of interfaces between different, dissimilar systems, and in gateways to connect systems to each other and to/from public and private telephone systems. Several years of experience at device level, sub-system and large system design involving non-conventional interfaces and multiple devices attached and operating concurrently over voice radio systems. For instance, public safety, public utilities and large railroad mobile radio applications where radios are often used to connect sensors and operate remote equipment as well as for voice traffic.

Mobile Computing and Mobile Data Systems

Experience in the design and commissioning of systems carrying wireless digital data at rates from 2.4 Kb/s to several Mb/s. Development of data systems that can also carry voice, for instance Voice Over IP for communications and interoperability. Design and development of open standards based wireless networks using several platforms and hardware from a handful of leading vendors. Design of low cost secure wireless communications using state of the art Triple-AES and Triple-DES encryption, Virtual Private Networks and Mobile Intranets and Internets. We can develop a system totally using only the customer infrastructure and networks, the public carrier networks or a combination of both.

Mobilcom Van - Interoperable Radio Laboratory on Wheels

A fully equipped mobile computing laboratory (Mobilcom Van) is used by Radio Systems Marketing to evaluate present systems, develop concepts and test potential interoperability solutions for compliance with needs and requirements. This mobile laboratory has several on-board radio systems, three Voice Over IP interoperable gateways and a sophisticated external communications system including three satellite terminals, SPRINT and Verizon 1xRTT high speed wireless Internet and industrial grade wireless Local Area Networks. An advanced and secure on-board computing network and several wireless computers are also part of the Mobilcom Van.

Radio Systems Marketing has the capability to provide working demonstrations of different interoperable radio systems right at a customer site or field location, and the Mobilcom Van can interconnect state of the art Interoperable technology with the existing systems in place to test and evaluate several potential courses of action to deploy new interoperable systems.
