Flexible system deployment
The Hytera SmartXPT application is not a single module, but a group of components that can be built up to a system, based on subscriber size, topology and coverage requirements. It can be configured as a small single-site system, up to a large multi-site, cross-country network system. All configurations can easily be managed through a remote configuration tool.
Benefits of Hytera SmartXPT
- ALL TYPES OF VOICE CALL
Voice calls that meet various dispatching operational needs including: private call, group call and all call. Every client console is able to send up to 8 voice dispatching channels. Through these dispatching channels, the system can receive all types of calls, as well as trigger any type of call through a user-friendly and easy-to-operate interface.
- VOICE RECORDING & PLAYBACK
All incoming / outgoing calls will be recorded and stored on the Hytera SmartXPT server. This includes all types of DMR voice calls and PSTN interconnected voice calls. Users can retrieve recorded voice calls and play them back at any time so that important conversations are not missed. All recorded voice calls can be searched via time of call, caller ID or callee ID.
- PHONE INTERCONNECT
Enabled with SIP standard protocol to integrate with standard IP-PBX for voice interconnection between radios and PSTN public phone network. This allows the dispatcher make or receive calls through the dispatcher client console and for the radios to make calls to telephones and vice versa.
- REMOTE MONITORING
By un-muting the microphone of a radio, the Hytera SmartXPT System will be able to monitor voice activities remotely without the PTT button having to be pressed. This can be useful when the control centre wants to listen to remote voice activities without pressing the PTT button, such as in emergency situations.
- VISUALISED DISPATCHING
The dispatcher calls terminals displayed on the map, measuring the distance and space and also saving the map interface. When logging in the system, the GPS can automatically open the previously saved map interface.
- DISPATCHER INTERCOM
Supports direct communication between client consoles through the Hytera SmartXPT System. Users can choose either one-to-one intercom or broadcasting intercom from the client interface.
Allows users to patch talk groups, channels, sites and systems together so there is seamless communication between all radio users. Once the communication link is established all radios operate together regardless of frequency or mode (analogue or digital). All these configurations can be easily configured through the Hytera SmartXPT System dispatcher console.
- TEXT MESSAGING
Dispatchers are able to send and receive DMR standard text messages. A text message can be sent to a radio, or a group message can be sent to a group of radios identified by group ID. Using a chat-based GUI to send and receive text messages. All incoming and outgoing text messages are stored in the database for later retrieval.
- AUTOMATIC GPS SUBSCRIPTION BY CLIENT
When Hytera SmartXPT System clients logout, clients will remember the status of radios such as check online and tracking. Once the clients log in again, it will automatically recover the status of radios from when the client last logged out.
- LOCATION HISTORY & ROUTE PLAYBACK
All location information of radios will be kept in the systems database for later retrieval and history location checking. Users are allowed to query history location information of a radio as well as playing back the location route of a radio within a specified time interval.
- REGIONS & GEOFENCING
Users can define regions on the map as working regions or restricted regions for a predefined set of radios. This can also be enabled in each region. Once the geofencing rule is infringed (based on whether the region is a working region or restricted region) by any of the predefined set of radios, a geofencing alarm will be activated in the control centre and optionally a message will be sent to the subscriber unit.
- REAL-TIME TRACKING
This tracks the location of any radio in real time. Users have the option to display the location route on the map. The tracking interval depends on the location update interval configured in each radio and the channel loading of DMR system. The total number of location tracking activities can be activated at one time and will depend on the mapping system and limitations of system resources.
- IMPORT/EXPORT IN BATCH
When there is a number of mobile radios or work groups to add, an Excel file can be generated by inputting all information about the mobile terminals or work groups and then imported into the system to improve efficiency. The user can also export information about the existing mobile terminals or work groups as Excel files from the system.
- EMERGENCY ALARM
When an emergency is activated by a subscriber radio, the Hytera SmartXPT System will trigger an alarm. Optionally, the location information of the radio that triggers the emergency will be shown on the map depending on the validity of the location information of the radio by the time the emergency is triggered.
- MULTIPLE MAPPING SUPPORT
Provides multiple mapping options for a user to select based on their own usage requirement. These mapping engines support both on-line mapping, such as Google Maps, and off-line mapping too.
- “HANDLE” PROCESS FOR EMERGENCY ALARM
Hytera SmartXPT System will automatically receive emergency alarms from radios. By clicking “Take” it means the dispatcher is informed of the emergency; and clicking “Handle” indicates the dispatcher has handled the emergency.
- AUTOMATIC GPS POLLING
The server receives GPS automatically regardless of the client's GPS subscription.
- WIDE-AREA NETWORKING
The server, gateway and terminal can all be deployed through the wide area network.
- ENQUIRY BY KEYWORD
You can search the recorded messages by keywords.
- ENABLE/DISABLE UNKNOWN RADIOS
Enable / disable unknown radios by Radio ID.
- RADIO STUN/ACTIVATION
A Radio can be stunned remotely when it is being used illegally or has been stolen. The stunned radio is able to power on but not able to transmit or receive transmissions. The radio can be activated again when necessary by the administrator.
- ON-LINE/OFF-LINE STATUS REPORTING
When the radio is powered on / off it will send a status report to the dispatcher. They will also be able to check the status of any radio with status query command. This allows the dispatcher to monitor the status of all the radios in the system.
- REPEATER ACCESS
The utilisation of a repeater can reduce the amount of gateway required, lower operational costs and expand communication range. The Hytera SmartXPT System can support single station mode and IP connection mode with the repeater.
- REPORTING AND STATISTICS
The Hytera SmartXPT System can generate various types of reports, such as calling report, radio status report, location tracking report, etc.
- GPS POSITIONING
This feature is only available for subscriber radios which are fitted with GPS. Each subscriber radio is able to obtain its location coordinate information from this built-in GPS module. The Hytera SmartXPT System can retrieve the location information of any radio either by requesting on demand the current position of the radio or by sending a Start Tracking Command, setting up a radio to update the location information from the radio to Hytera SmartXPT periodically with a configurable time interval.
Versatile SmartXPT functions
In addition to linking mobile radios, repeaters can also be added via IP in order to use the system as a radio dispatcher. This delivers an IP dispatching system, enabling network-wide voice recording and direct control of the repeater time slots.
MULTIPLE MAPPING ENGINE
Users have the option to choose their own preferable mapping engines based on their specific usage requirements. These mapping engines include; Google Maps, MapInfo, Google Offline Map, etc.
VARIOUS ACCESS PRIVILEGES
Multiple levels of access privileges can be defined by users for careful access control. Based on each customer’s needs, each access level can be assigned to selected radio units, or the entire fleet, and can also be assigned to specific sites or any site in the system.
MULTIPLE AND SEPARATE SCREEN SUPPORT
The Hytera Smart XPT System console supports multiple views and screen splitting across displays so that all the information you require can be seen at a glance. This feature avoids dispatcher users having to switch between different views during their operation.
Hytera Smart XPT System is ideal for global customers as the application supports multiple languages. The display language can be switched easily from the dispatcher console interface without needing to reboot the application.
NO RECURRING MONTHLY INVESTMENT
Compared to most GPRS-based solutions, Hytera Smart XPT relies on the DMR communication network for GPS location instead of the GPRS protocol. That means there is no recurring monthly fee for data.
