WAVE 5000

Interoperable, Secure Group Communication

WAVE 5000 enables interoperable push-to-talk (PTT) communication across broadband and radio networks and devices so that critical, time-sensitive information flows quickly and securely between mobile workers and teams. Whether on a smartphone, radio, computer or landline, your personnel can connect instantly and securely with WAVE 5000.

Use Right Device For The Job

Perhaps you’re an executive traveling for a conference but you want to stay connected to your radio system. Or use your radio for operational purposes and do not need to carry a ruggedized radio with you all of the time. Maybe you’re a government agent working undercover. Your smartphone and ear buds would be ideal to connect to other tactical units while keeping you inconspicuous. For every police officer on the beat, agent on a job or worker on shift, there are many other personnel who can provide support, often life-saving assistance, with PTT communications using smartphones, tablets or PCs from any location. WAVE 5000 makes it possible.

Bridge Two-Way Radio With Broadband Networks

With WAVE 5000 you can experience functionality that lets you build and operate secure, highly scalable solutions for today’s most demanding communications environments:

Extend Radio to Broadband
Extend workforce communications beyond radio to include modern devices and broadband networks for seamless communications in any location.

Embrace Broadband
Secure, ‘over-the-top’ PTT connecting smart devices over 3/4G LTE and Wi-Fi networks delivers greater choice and flexibility when choosing a non-radio, carrier-independent communications solution.

Connect Radio to Radio
Connect multiple, disparate two-way radio systems and remove barriers to communication interoperability and workforce collaboration.
