This incredibly versatile gateway allows a pair of radios, a pair of IP connections, or a radio and IP connection to be patched together and/or remotely interfaced to other devices.

Incorporating the JPS suite of radio interface algorithms and the ability to use JPS’ large catalog of radio interface cables, the RSP-Z2™ embodies all of the customer-friendly features and benefits you’ve come to expect from JPS.

For Any Gateway: from Simple to Complex

Multiple RSP-Z2 Gateways can connect to a single Z-Series Controller to create a wide area interoperability system. This is a relatively small system with different endpoints interfaced using RSP-Z2s. However, as many as 80 endpoints may be interfaced through a Z-Series Controller, depending on resource demands.

IP-based resources and backhauls from RSP-Z2 Gateways easily integrate into wide area interoperability communications streaming through a Z-Series Controller or ACU-Z1 modular interoperability gateway. These devices allow an operator to create interoperability nets, perform one- or two-way dispatch operations, or monitor resources easily.

Optional HC-128 and AES-256 encryption can be licensed on JPS Z-Series devices for JPS Bridge and JPS RoIP audio.

Access from Anywhere

The dynamic patching capability of the RSP-Z2 can be controlled and its audio monitored via the unit’s web-based graphical user interface. Audio from a local patch can also be connected to additional radios or other devices interfaced by additional RSP-22 units or by another JPS radio interoperability gateway.

Convenient net presets and context-sensitive help text provide setup and configuration guidance. Since the user interface is browser-based, it can be accessed from anywhere using a computer, smartphone, or tablet.

Independent Passthrough or Cross-Connected

In Independent Passthrough Mode, the RSP-Z2 acts as a pair of independent IP data streams. A variety of resource types can be interfaced, but most commonly this configuration transfers LMR radio audio plus PTT & COR signals to a remote device over the IP network. In this mode, the unit behaves similarly to a two-channel version of the popular JPS NXU-2B, but with many additional features, and with room for expansion to include many more.

In Cross-Connected Mode, the RSP-Z2 can create a local patch between its two local interfaces (radio-to-radio, radio-to-IP, or IP-to-IP). This simple cross-connected patch between local resources can be expanded with the Cross-Connected with Backhaul configuration. The backhaul links to a remote IP-based resource, such as a SIP phone, a JPS RoIP connection, or a Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) application.
