Multicom IP is also equipped with PCM and CAN bus connectors, allowing it to be used as a central unit controlling the interface cards of the Multikom 2 system.
In one 1U housing, it is possible to install a dual central unit and two additional expansion cards. If system expansion is needed, further slots for additional cards are installed and connected on top of each other.
All peripherals communicate with the Multikom IP system using the IP protocol, i.e. digital dispatch consoles, local and remote radiotelephone controllers, VoIP telephony network and the networks of digital radio systems (DMR, TETRA, NEXEDGE and others). If special codec or increased capacity is required, an additional expansion card is used. The entire voice commutation and control takes place at the central unit level.
Special Expansion Cards
Multicom IP expansion slots can be expanded for the purpose of adding two categories of cards:
Additional signal processor cards which increase system capacity.
specialized codec expansion cards: e.g. cards with built-in AMBE hardware codecs for Multikom IP communication with the DMR or NEXEDGE radio network infrastructure.
