Simulcast P25: Reality and Myth

The benefits of Simulcast technology are well proven, delivering cost effective wide area coverage, efficient use of frequencies and ease of use for both mobile users and controllers. At the same time, Simulcast has been associated with complexity and a degree of "black art." With the arrival of IP, Simoco has removed much of the confusion surrounding the configuration and management of both analogue and digital Simulcast systems.

However, it seems that, since the shift to P25 digital, some options for Simulcast have introduced new levels of complexity and additional cost that cannot be justified and overlook the opportunity to exploit IP as a means of simplifying Simulcast solutions. In this paper, Andrew Wozencroft, Product Manager and Brian Overton, Bid Engineer, examine the real issues in getting the best performance from Simulcast systems and exploiting the full benefits of an IP infrastructure.
