JPS Interoperability Launches Next Gen. ACU gateway - and a New Secure PTT Over Cellular For Its Radio Gateway Users

JPS Interoperability Solutions, Inc., an industry leader in communications interoperability, announces its new ACU-Z1 radio gateway.  The next generation ACU-Z1 gateway maintains the modular nature of the company’s signature ACU product, but boasts a smaller form factor, requires less power, can interface more types of communications systems and is operable from any web browser.

The ACU-Z1 gateway hosts a highly scalable and adaptable audio engine that expands the size, type, and number of interoperability nets that can be created, while also allowing exchange of metadata between various communications formats. Another key improvement is the increase in processing power and the advanced capabilities this enables for this initial release and for future updates.

In addition, the company has also announced the integration of Enterprise Secure Chat (ESChat) with its ACU technology. The combined solution, named JPS VIA, delivers secure voice and data links between mobile devices and JPS gateways. Using the solution, system operators and the individual users of the gateways’ various communications systems can now also communicate via Smartphones and tablets.

JPS VIA is offered as a hosted service running on commercial 3G/LTE/WiFi networks. Customers simply purchase the service through JPS, download the application to their Smartphones from the JPS Android or Apple App Store, and are charged a monthly service fee per mobile device used. This solution is an inexpensive option for users seeking to extend their radio communications capability with lower cost cellular devices, regardless of carrier.

ESChat has also recently added the proprietary JPS RoIP protocol into their platform to allow ESChat servers to communicate directly with new and existing JPS interoperability equipment. The addition of JPS’s RoIP will allow the many ESChat-enabled products currently offered to directly connect with JPS gateways and use JPS NXU radio interface units – both for new deployments or with the large installed base of JPS products.
