ROIP Availability - November 2014

Field testing of the STACS Generation 2 ROIP system has been completed and the product is now certified and available for general use.

The STACS ROIP system provides radio interoperability you can actually use in the field.  Radio bridges can be predefined allowing bridging between multiple radio systems and Windows or Android access with no configuration.  No network configuration is ever necessary and full administrative capabilities are provided via a web or Windows client based interface.

Windows and Android client software is provided free of charge for use with STACS ROIP adapters and can be used to monitor, transmit on and control radios from anywhere in the world an internet connection is available.

The second member of the STACS ROIP adapter family is currently undergoing testing.  This new adapter is half the size of the Gen 2 adapter and provides two independent ROIP interfaces allowing bridging of two radio systems from a single adapter.  We anticipate general release of this dual port adapter in March 2015.
