Product Release: Kenwood NEXEDGE Products and Expanded GPS/AVL Utilities

(Suwanee, GA) New NEXEDGE® System firmware Version 2.8 enhances the GPS/AVL utility, the KGP-149RM Repeater Monitor Software enables continuous monitoring of repeaters on an NXDN trunked or conventional IP network and the new NEXEDGE NX-200S/300S non-LCD platform portables, NXR-700E/800E 25 Watt Repeaters and NEXEDGE 900 MHz products are among the latest developments in the digital NEXEDGE line-up from Kenwood.

The 2.8 firmware update provides operators with expanded capabilities specifically related to the GPS/AVL function for both repeaters and subscriber units including additional ID and reporting, power on/off status and remote updating.  

The KGP-149RM Repeater Monitor Software can be used with NXDN single-site and multi-site trunked networks or NXDN® conventional IP networks and allows 24/7 monitoring and alerts to problems with any repeater within the system, with custom alarm and notification features.

New NX-200S/300S, non-LCD portables are ideal for users on a NEXEDGE system that do not require full operating capabilities.  New NXR-700E/800E Repeaters, at 25 Watts of output power, are designed for users who require lower power capabilities, and the NXR-710/810 Repeaters include the updated Version 1/5 firmware update to allow conventional voting operation for expanded capabilities.  Users who require 900 MHz operation now have NEXEDGE capabilities in a full line of subscriber and infrastructure products.
