- Aug 16, 2016
Motorola released new Mototrbo System R 2.6. This latest system release covers all currently shipping MOTOTRBO portables, mobiles and repeaters as well as the CPS and other software tools. The release includes several enhancements, including:
Next generation trunking with DMR Tier III compliant mode, plus much more.
MOTOTRBO Capacity Max is Motorola’s next-generation DMR trunking solution. It is a Control Channel-based trunking system (infrastructure and subscriber) with both proprietary and standards-based (ETSI DMR Tier III) over the air signaling protocols. The single system Server hardware platform, the Capacity Max System Server (CMSS) is used to host the system-level Trunk Controller, System Advisor server, and the MNIS Voice & Radio Command (VRC) Gateway.
The Trunk Controller handles system wide Resource Management, Call Control, Registration and Authentication. The System Advisor (client/server architecture) provides centralized system and fault management, including call monitoring functionality.
Wi-Fi Programming and Upgrade
This feature uses the Wi-Fi interface on the latest generation of radios to enhance Over-the-Air Programming. Users can now send large files to your radios – for example new radio firmware, voice announcement files and splash screen images.
Indoor location tracking
The Indoor Location Tracking feature scope provides the ability for tracking a radio user inside of a building or indoor conditions. The use case is supported with the Beacon technology and Application Developer Partner tools – which accurately tracks the indoor location data points and applies it to mapping application software

The Radio Management application is used to configure all MOTOTRBO system products including Trunking Controller, Repeaters, Mobiles and Portables. Radio Management can be installed on any computer, which meets the minimum hardware and software requirements, with a direct IP connection to the system.
