Radio Communications 101

Slide 3

ObJectives: A general prologue to 2-way radio interchanges frameworks Specifics of the MetroSafe 800 MHz, Regional Communications Systems (RCS) 3

Slide 4

Our Current System Very High Frequency (VHF) One recurrence for each channel. Manual control of towers from the Dispatch Center. May experience Repeater or Direct Radio to Radio May be "voted" - Many destinations get yet just a single transmits. You have to choose the best possible "Tone" to converse with the dispatcher!

Slide 5

Very High Frequency (VHF) Ultra High Frequency (UHF) May experience Repeater or Direct Radio to Radio

Slide 7

Pros & Cons of Simplex  " Simplex" alludes to routine 'radio-to-radio' capacity where two radios are tuned to an indistinguishable frequency.  From long as the radios are inside scope of each other and tuned to a similar recurrence the client will have the capacity to push to talk and discharge to tune in at all circumstances. Expert – The utilization of simplex guarantees that radio clients inside range (for the most part two miles or less) and tuned to a similar channel will hear each other. Con– Simplex devotes the full-time utilization of a recurrence; at the end of the day, the asset is submitted, notwithstanding when nobody is talking.

Slide 8

The New System 800 Megahertz Digital Trunked Simulcast

Slide 9

Digital versus Analog Digital Analog Not as helpless to impediments in way of radio wave travel Receiving radio has circuits that attempt to right things hindered amid radio wave travel All or nothing while accepting interchanges Radio wave can be debased by hindrances and separation Analog can't right and you just get "a few" of the transmission when radio wave is discouraged

Slide 10

Trunked Multiple Voice Channels and One Control Channel Control Channel precludes "stroll over" Control Channel permits crisis messages to end up need – Emergency catch gives client most elevated need MetroSafe will have 23 Voice Channels and 1 Control Channel

Slide 11

Trunked The control channel is utilized by the framework to naturally switch each radio on an offered talkgroup to a similar voice channel. A voice channel is the place the genuine discussions happen. Trunking is a strategy to make the most productive utilization of voice channels.

Slide 12

Trunked Radio Systems share a little pool of frequencies among an extensive number of clients. They can do this since interchanges are for the most part short (commonly under 5 seconds in length,) and a specific channel may be occupied under 5% of the time. Framework clients are appointed to "talkgroups" which work as virtual channels.

Slide 13

Trunked When a client makes a call, the radio transmits its present gathering ID and a demand for a radio channel (recurrence combine) to the PC which controls the trunking framework. The PC then conveys a "channel allow" determining which radio channel to utilize, and telling each other radio in that client's gathering to likewise go to that radio channel and screen for activity.

Slide 14

Trunked When the client quits transmitting, the recurrence is discharged with the goal that it is accessible for the following gathering to utilize, which can be whatever other clients of the framework. On a trunking radio, a "channel" is not the recurrence being used, but rather will be fairly the code (Talk Group ID) allocated to a specific gathering of clients on the framework to distinguish them to that PC.

Slide 15

Trunked The advantage of this innovation to the offices is that numerous more virtual channels are accessible for specific activity than there are frequencies. For instance, the Fort Worth trunked framework has just 20 frequencies, yet benefits more than 400 talkgroups. Every single radio divert in a trunking framework are repeaters, so framework activity can be broadly listened.

Slide 16

Trunked Priorities: In uncommon circumstances there might be more demands to utilize the radio framework - for our situation 24 yearnings to chat can't be obliged by 23 voice channels. Ought to this happen, a need framework is set up. This gives individuals with a more basic capacity, for example, crisis responders, speedier access to the framework than the waste vehicle driver.

Slide 17

Encryption The MetroSafe radio frameworks utilizes two levels of encryption so that delicate interchanges stay secret. Low level encryption is utilized on Medical Channels so that private therapeutic data identifying with a patient can't be heard by people in general having scanners. However these discussions can be heard by MetroSafe radios.

Slide 18

Encryption High Level Encryption is a more unpredictable framework. It is utilized for discussions requiring a more noteworthy measure of protection, for example, amid police SWATT operations, or for illegal conflagration while leading a reconnaissance operation. Just those MetroSafe radios particularly designed can get abnormal state encryption (the main 3 order officers for every division). It could be utilized by flame summon to talk about a harmed firefighter's condition without it being heard by undesired audience members, for example, the firefighter's family checking the occurrence on a scanner.

Slide 20

Pros and Cons of Trunking Pro – Trunked radios permit an expansive number of radio clients to have individual talkgroups (channels) while sharing a pool of frequencies over a vast topographical territory. Professional – Talkgroups(channels) can be combined for interoperability. Con – The capacity to impart is reliant on the radio client's availability with a repeater.  If the radio can't achieve a repeater, the client won't have the capacity to convey

Slide 21

Simulcast Allows a client to be communicate from all transmitters at the same time Greatly lessens, does not kill, dead spots inside the administration range

Slide 22

Topology of 2-way Communications Simplex-AKA direct or talk-around. – Your transmit and get frequencies are the same. You don't "experience" a repeater. Repeater-Your transmit and get frequencies are distinctive and are directed through a remote radio site. Simulcast-Broadcasting a message over different transmitters all through a geological district at unequivocally a similar time 22

Slide 25

Why are we evolving? There are a set number of radio frequencies accessible with our present VHF/UHF radio frameworks. One radio can't speak with all open wellbeing groups - you would need to convey 10 isolate radios to speak with every one of them. The new framework gives the capacity of two unique offices to speak with each other, on request, and progressively. The 800 MHz band has the capacity of giving about 150 frequencies to the metro zone to work on a solitary radio framework.

Slide 26

800 MHz – The FDNY Questions In the result of September eleventh, many inquiries have emerged about correspondences troubles that were experienced. Perusing a significant number of the articles the term correspondences was not constrained to radio innovation. Numerous correspondences were procedural and operational. Since we are amidst an expansive scale radio framework change, the correspondences issues experienced in NYC were taken a gander at from a radio innovation point of view. In March 2001, the Fire Department of New York made an endeavor to change to fresher advanced innovation. While these radios were advanced, they were not trunked. The division stayed on their old frequencies yet changed to advanced radios. This can be compared to changing from simple PDA administration to computerized. The office did insignificant preparing, and the radios acted uniquely in contrast to the old simple radios. Since the clients had insignificant preparing, they didn't know about a portion of the working qualities of the new radios. Clients soon griped of poor interchanges. Following one week in the field, the advanced radios were pulled from administration. The New York Fire Department surrendered that they had moved too quick with an end goal to get the radios under the control of the firefighters. The chief expressed that the center issue was the disappointment of the fire office to appropriately prepare the firefighters about the qualities of the new computerized innovation. These radios were reinvented back to the simple mode. The computerized mode has not been used since March 2001.

Slide 27

800 MHz – The FDNY Questions It was additionally revealed that interchanges were poor to the point that when a city design said the structures were at danger of up and coming breakdown, a runner must be sent to tell the positioning flame boss. What was not said is that the central who got the report was Chief Peruggia of the EMS Bu
