Record Radio - Analog or RoIP (Radio over Internet Protocol)

Record DISPATCH Radio – Analog Or RoIP
(Radio Over Internet Protocol)

With Versadial Call Recorder

Radio communications can be recorded by Versadial as either:

  • A 2-wire analog audio line/connection (e.g. analog Speaker or audio output line wired to the recorder as 2-wire analog line).
              OR
  • An RTP/RoIP (Radio Over IP) stream sent directly to the recorder (unicast)  or to multicast address where recorder collects it. For example, analog output in a remote location can be converted to  RTP/(Radio Over IP) stream by using BARIX INSTREAMER (see scenario 8 section below) and sent to a centralized recorder.

Radio system configuration on the customer side is a “black box” to the Versadial team. To issue a recommendation or quotation all we need to know is the type of recorded inputs to be configured on the recorder.

Versadial can record emergency radio lines, dispatch radio lines, police, ambulance, or other security or emergency radio lines. As long as there is a proper base station that we can connect to, we can configure and record all radio traffic.

Recording from the analog outputs of the radio stations or radio adapters – See scenario 7 – Radio recording from the analog outputs
Versadial is connected to the analog output of the base station or radio adapter. Proper software configuration and an analog card are required in the recording server. (see diagrams below)

Recording  RTP/RoIP (Radio over IP) streams sent by supported radio stations or adapters – See scenario 8 – Radio recording via RoIP
Versadial Radio over IP recording (IPCAST) channels can be configured for active recording. With this configuration, Versadial software records from the devices which can stream digital audio (e.g. RTP) direct to the recorder or to multicast address. Also, similar to VoIP, the recorder can capture data via a SPAN/MIRROR port on a switch. (see diagrams below)

Our customers  are successfully recording the following devices:

  • Telex IP-223 and Telex IP-224 Radio Adapters: IP Unicast or IP multicast options. For example, Telex IP-224 supports radios from many manufacturers (Kenwood Radios: x80 Series x90 Series x150 Seriesx180 Series 5 x 10 P25 SeriesNEXEDGE, Motorola, iCOM Radios, iDEN, Sprint Direct connect, Sepura Radios─SRM2000 TETRA and more.)
  • BARIX INSTREAMER: Analog audio to RoIP Unicast converter. Allows passing of audio from an analog output in a remote location to the centralized recorder as RoIP Unicast.
  • Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration System (IPICS) Server: Radio channels recorded from  IP multicast addresses
  • AVtec Scout Console: Radio channels recorded from  IP unicast or IP multicast addresses.

Attention: Many other RoIP devices which provide similar access to communication via IP unicast or IP multicast streams are compatible and can be tested with Versadial VSLogger upon request. If your device supports RTP/RoIP steaming but not listed above, please contact us today at sales@versadial.com or (949) 457-0650 schedule testing and custom configuration.
