Innovation Everywhere from Catalyst at IWCE

Multiple Technologies on Display Show Advances in Land Mobile Radio Communications 


IWCE 2017, Las Vegas, NV – March 28, 2017 

Technology innovations in DMR, Hardware Platforms, and Panoptic Communications are being displayed and demonstrated this week in Catalyst booth #1445 at IWCE.  

Innovations in Digital Mobile Radio –DMR

Catalyst has made significant progress since last year’s IWCE, and an example of this is our partnership efforts with Simoco and our joint collaboration perfecting the Applications Interface Specification (AIS) Wireline Interface. In the Simoco Booth (#1646 – across the aisle from Catalyst) our Propulsion™ Console is featured with a Simoco radio infrastructure.  Using the AIS wireline interface, Catalyst provides Critical Communications grade dispatch including console pre-empt, non-blocking access to multiple simultaneous, independently managed talk groups, and spectrum efficiency.

Catalyst Demonstrates Next Generation of P25 Interoperability

Unit ID Transmission from Non-P25 to P25 Subscriber Units is an Industry First

APCO 2016, Orlando, FL – August 12, 2016

Described as a first for public safety radio technology, Catalyst Communications Technologies, Inc. will demonstrate routing the Unit ID from legacy and current subscriber radios to the P25 subscriber unit’s display.  This innovation leverages the messaging capabilities of the P25 Digital Fixed Station Interface (DFSI) standard to deliver Unit ID information to a device manufactured by RELM Wireless Corporation and then on to P25 subscriber radios using the P25 Common Air Interface (CAI) Standard. This is the first time legacy radio Unit IDs have been available to P25 subscriber radios without expensive, limiting infrastructure.
