Clear-Com Gateway CG-X4

ALAMEDA, CALIF. — Clear-Com recently announced the launch of its new Gateway family. The modular CG-X1 and CG-X4 devices are designed to link and bridge disparate communication systems such as IP networks, telephone networks, radios and intercom systems. Clear-Com Gateway is a good solution for on-site communication across different frequencies for government, military, public safety agencies and many other applications.

Clear-Com Gateway combines radio interface technology for analog and digital radios with a suite of programmable features to meet demanding radio and Land Mobile Radio applications. Gateway bridges radio channels across different radio platforms, port-to-port, port-to-multi-port and Radio-over-IP, enabling cross-communication between different frequencies. In addition, as the radio market continues to move to digital radios and 4G LTE, Gateway devices can link to these digital radio networks via SIP and the Digital Radio Module to allow analog-to-digital and digital-to-digital bridging and conferencing on one platform.

Clear-Com Gateway devices also have built-in SIP interface capability. Standards-based IP interfacing for Voice-over-IP, Radio-over-IP, Unicast, Multicast and SIP applications are supported for connectivity and interoperability. When connected to Clear-Com intercom systems, the four-wire port signalling capability can activate features and trigger radios, and SIP telephone access becomes available within Clear-Com systems. The CG-X1 is the two-port option for remote sites and single-channel bridging. The CG-X4 carries a higher port density of eight ports in a small form factor, with the possibility of up to 16 ports in total in a 1RU space.
