Icom VE-PG4: Mission Critical Communications
October 17, 2019

Interoperability and coordinated communication between public safety response agencies is crucial. Since these agencies often utilize different radio equipment, invaluable time is lost while dispatchers relay emergency information between radio systems and protocols, severely inhibiting an immediate response. Just as an AM radio cannot pick up FM radio, public safety radios on one frequency cannot pick up transmissions from those operating in another band.

The VE-PG4 is Icom’s newest land mobile gatewayand is the backbone to the Icom Connect suite of devices. The VE-PG4’s sole task is to create one seamless, uninterrupted network bridging these incompatibilities.

The VE-PG4 is revolutionary. It can connect various agencies into a single communication path. The various built-in modules serve as translators between protocols, accommodating land mobile radios, LTE radios, IP communication terminals, IP phone systems (SIP), and even other VE-PG4s located anywhere in the country. Comparable systems would require additional equipment, further complicated installation, more time, and would be more costly.

The VE-PG4 can connect public address systems, sirens, warning lights, and other external devices.

Additional features of this multifunctional device include: call recording to a USB device, the ability to provide position and status information of select radios for use with outboard software, the use of optional Remote Communicator Software (RC-FS10), built-in SIP server for assigning IP phone numbers, router functions with VPN tunnel, and easy online firmware updates. On the physical side, the VE-PG4 is half the width of a 19-inch server rack.

The Icom Connect suite of interconnecting devices includes our newest Network radio, the IC-SAT100 satellite radio, P25 radios, and our own IDAS™ digital land mobile radio system using the NXDN™.

With seamless integration, Icom’s VE-PG4 allows you to keep the ‘first’ in First Responder.

The VE-PG4 is the comprehend solution for all of your interoperability needs, and is available now. For more information, please visit:  www.icomamerica.com/network
