The Cisco Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Gateway solution employs standard, commercially available routers with LMR-specific software capabilities. These gateways link to existing LMR systems and make the critical adaptation of LMR audio and signaling to IP. The standards-based IP network that interconnects the LMR gateways provides the intelligent services necessary for real-time, point-to-multipoint traffic. The flexible, cost-effective solution joins multiple LMR systems temporarily or permanently, and the scalable, distributed architecture can support a few to thousands of users over unlimited distances across a public or private network.The LMR industry is moving to a packet-based network infrastructure to interconnect radio base stations. Solutions based on traditional technologies are expensive, vendor proprietary, not scalable, and unreliable during disaster scenarios, when radio communications are critical. The Cisco LMR-over-IP solution addresses this important market by enabling a scalable, robust, and secure network that integrates easily with commercially available radio systems. The core of the Cisco LMR solution consists of Cisco 2800 and 3800 Series integrated services routers, Cisco 2600XM multiservice routers, and Cisco 3700 Series multiservice access routers, which can transport LMR traffic over point-to-point or multicast voice-over-IP (VoIP) networks, enabling LMR systems to extend beyond their traditional geographic limitations imposed by transmitter signal strength.
