, AccessoriesThe 4-STAR is a modern IP alternative to T1 channel banks and terminal servers. The 4-STAR is a Radio over IP (RoIP) device connecting up to 4 analog radios via an IP (SIP) network. E&M signaling on each port supports Push-to-talk (PTT) keying and includes a standard 4-wire full-duplex audio interface. The 4-STAR provides reliable and secure radio control in remote areas.

The 4-STAR provides additional common interface functions such as triggering door locks, lighting indicators, and issuing alarms. The same interfaces can be utilized to read signals or conditions from remote locations. A handset connector can be enabled for talk capability on any of the four audio channels (with or without PTT).

The 4-STAR can be used as a standalone device, but it can also provide enhanced capabilities when used in conjunction with the Compunetix Mission Voice Platform (MVP). Each port also includes an RS232/422 serial port and discrete input/output for enhanced radio control (e.g. frequency, mode, squelch, power) as supported by the MVP software. Audio and control data are transported to/from the MVP central switch over an encrypted redundant IP link.
