The popular JPS NXU-2A network extension unit has been improved and will begin shipping next month as the NXU-2B. It uses the same cabinet and is fully functional in systems with the older NXU-2A. The new model no longer uses potentiometers so level setting can be accomplished remotely using a browser. This eliminates a costly service call to the transmitter site.
Another big change is the 15-pin audio interface connector has been redesigned to allow any of the standard JPS radio cables to be connected directly to the unit. The NXU-2A required the included crossover adapter to work but half the time it was left in the box.
In addition to solid state keying, the NXU-2B will have a PTT relay and the ability to interface to transmitters via 600 ohm balanced audio.
Below is a video showing the capabilities of the NXU network extension unit.

The RSP-Z2 dual-channel gateway from JPS Interoperability Solutions located in Raleigh, NC allows a pair of 2-way radios, IP connections, or a radio and IP connection to be patched together. There are no recurring costs and the RSP-Z2 supports 2/4-wire interfaces, SIP, RTP, and RoIP protocols. JPS offers factory-built cables with connectors for almost every analog and digital radio model ever manufactured.
Easy Solution to Connect Your Existing Radios with WAVE TLK 100 LTE Devices
Users with a large number of existing on-site radios can easily interface with Motorola WAVE OnCloud TLK 100 LTE devices that provide nationwide coverage. All you need is the RSP-Z2 and interface cables for the TLK 100 and your on-site radio.
The TLK 100 and your radio would be dedicated and can not be used for dispatch. Interoperability is automatic on the channels selected on each dedicated radio. Coverage for the on-site donor radio would be limited by the antenna system or repeater.

JPS Interoperability Solutions has a long history of mission critical radio communications connectivity. The JPS ACU-M interoperability gateway console is an excellent tool to quickly improve in-building coverage for first responders. It is compatible with the JPS ACU-1000 and the ACU-T.
The JPS ACU-M provides interconnection with up to four different 2-way radios, optional 2 VoIP channels, and a local operator handset. Plug-in cables are available for virtually every 2-way radio, satellite, and cell phone in use. The ACU-M can be networked and managed remotely using a computer with the included graphical user interface software.
Set up ACU-M as a Portable Repeater for Communications in Basements
The JPS ACU-M can be installed in a first-arriving command vehicle or waterproof carry case. Below grade basements that prevent RF penetration can be improved using long radio interface cables connected with the ACU-M gateway repeater. By attaching a portable radio to the end of a very long radio interface cable, the radio can be lowered into a tunnel or RF-blocked structure to provide a means of routing the signal in and out of the structure.
Use WiFi Network with ACU-M for Long Distance Radio Interoperability
Using the ACU-M’s VoIP’s option, a radio can be connected using WiFi or an ethernet bridge and a NXU-2A radio interface. The JPS NXU-2A is a device that converts VoIP/RoIP into audio signals compatible with the remote radio. It uses the same plug-in radio-specific cable as the ACU-M.
ACU-M Easy to Deploy – Simple User Interface
The ACU-M is pre-programmed with factory optimized settings for most radio models and manufacturers. Just connect up to four radios with the proper cables and you will be operational in minutes. Touch controls and indicator lights make it easy to patch nets quickly. Remote control software is included too and can be installed on a connected laptop if you prefer.
6/1/16 Update: Raytheon closed the JPS division on 1/29/16 after many years of providing interoperbility solutions. In April, the assets were purchased by Don Scott, one of the original founders of JPS. Key staff and support personnel returned and operations are returning to normal.
