Analogue - Xfin Blade

Xfin technology represents a fundamental shift in PMR design from hardware to software solutions. Traditional trunked radio systems rely on separate hardware components: basestations, trunk controllers, switches and telephone interfaces. Xfin takes a radically different approach, combining basestation RF components with IP soft switching to enable an integrated trunked radio solution within a single 1U wall or rack mounted Xfin Blade unit.
Each Xfin Blade with 25W, 50W or 100W power output contains all the required hardware for single site or multi site software variants, creating a complete range of MPT1327, soft switch enabled Base Stations, expandable through straightforward Ethernet IP connection at one or many sites.
IP Connectivity & Resilience
With the exception of the analogue air interface, Xfin is fully digital and IP, utilising VoIP to carry voice traffic. Each Xfin Blade is an IP device; networking by the same IP rules as standard IT equipment; each Xfin voice or data call just additional IP data stream in the same format as, say, your company email. So now for the first time PMR can be integrated into a single corporate IP network utilising cost effective IP connectivity options such as WIMAX and ADSL, dramatically reducing inter-site networking costs whilst providing inherent, distributive, network resilience.
Engineering procedure revolutionised
Deployment, integration and maintenance costs are slashed by five factors:
- Integrated basestation and soft switch functionality eliminate the cost and complication of integrating component hardware
- Plug and play technology reduces Blade deployment to a simple software wizard
- Remote Maintenance enables constant system monitoring and fault isolation
- 'Hot Swap' Blade replacement enables one step fast fault resolution
- Spares holding reduced to redundant Blade Units
Most industry players have diverted investment away from MPT in favour of Tetra and P25 leaving many MPT solutions five or ten years behind equivalent digital functionality. Whilst competitors terminated their MPT developments Team Simoco raised standards to new levels by creating Xfin digital IP based solutions. Quite simply Xfin is the only MPT1327 technology designed for the IP application networking challenges of the next decade and beyond.
