Country Fire Authority (CFA) is a volunteer fire and emergency services organization that protects millions of people and homes across the state of Victoria, Australia.
The Corryong Fire Brigades Group, required access to two P25 radio repeater sites that provided voice communications at a command level for their area. However, the local command operations facility is located within the footprint of one radio repeater but the other radio repeater was not accessible.
A DRG100-P25 Digital Radio Gateway was connected to the Tait TB9100 radio repeaters at each site. These DRG’s were then able to link the audio of the two radio sites together enabling the Corryong Group to access both site simultaneously.
Since the DRG100’s use an IP connection both to the radio and to the data network, they are able to be located at either the radio site or another network location.
