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.

The XE500 started shipping last year with additional features. It has a channel knob and larger emergency button with embedded orange lighting.
