Harris Adds P25 Trunking Capabilities to its Unity XG-100P Multiband Portable
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has added P25 (Project 25) trunking capabilities to its Unity® XG-100P Multiband Portable Radio. Trunking increases the efficiency of a radio system by assigning voice and data communications to unused radio channels, allowing for more voice and data traffic on the same number of channels.
- Capability extends across Unity XG-100 product family, including the Unity XG-100 portable and mobile radios.
- Current Unity XG-100P users can utilize trunking capabilities through a simple software upgrade.
- Multiband Unity XG-100P enables interoperable communications for users on public safety radio bands — trunked or conventional — on any manufacturer's P25-compliant system.
Current Unity portable users can take advantage of the Unity XG-100P trunking capabilities through a software upgrade. The Unity XG-100 family of radios, including the XG-100 portable radio and the XG-100 mobile radio, is fully P25-compliant and enables federal, state and local public safety users to achieve radio-level interoperable communications for day-to-day tasks or the coordination of large-scale emergency response.
"The combination of the Unity's multiband connectivity, trunking capabilities and its suite of advanced communications features makes the Unity XG-100 portable radio a powerful tool for public safety users," said George Helm, vice president and general manager — LMR Operations, Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. "The Unity XG-100 allows first responders to use a single radio to communicate across VHF, UHF, 700 and 800 MHz radio frequencies, on trunking or conventional systems, giving them unprecedented connectivity."
