  • Priority Monitor: allows a radio currently receiving a Talkgroup call to join a higher priority Talkgroup call
  • Status Call: user can send a short status message without allocating a traffic channel (unlike text messaging)
  • Multi Talkgroup Affiliation: allows a user to affiliate up to seven talkgroups, thereby increasing the probability of receiving a TG scan call
  • Centralised Distribution Sites: means customers will be able to accommodate a Capacity Max site that may not meet the minimum IP bandwidth requirements
  • Radio Kill and Wireless Console Initiated Stun/Revive: allows system operators to remotely kill or stun/revive radios on their network

– Other Features and Enhancements

  • Extended Range Direct Mode: extends the range of direct mode subscribers by enabling SLR 5000 and SLR 8000 repeaters to receive and transmit on the same frequency, but different time slots
  • Restricted Access To System as Standard (RAS): improves security for radio systems by enabling RAS by default
  • Received Audio Levelling: works to normalise all received audio to a target value
  • Mute Mode: provides a quick way for a user to mute the radio, either via a programmable button or by placing the radio face down (radios with an integrated accelerometer only).
  • Option to use Fixed Privacy Key Decryption: configures the radio to use only a single key for
    decryption (versus a keylist)
  • Indoor Location On: turning Indoor Location on now also turns Bluetooth on. Additionally, the Indoor Location option can be removed from the radio menu to prevent the user from disabling the feature
