RoIP Gateway Module
The VE-PG4 is a versatile RoIP (Radio over IP network) gateway unit, which seamlessly interconnects LMR radios, LTE radios, IP communication terminals, IP phone systems and external devices. In addition to the IP Network (LAN/WAN), the built-in LTE module (network coverage provided by a custom SIM card) provides virtually nationwide communication coverage.
All in One Package
The VE-PG4 includes built-in RoIP, SIP gateway, IP router, IP PBX and IP communication terminal controller functions, in one box. In comparison with a similar system combining several devices, installation and administration of the integrated VE-PG4 is much simpler.
Call Recording to a USB Drive
Incoming/Outgoing calls can be recorded to an external USB device connected to the VE-PG4. Up to four recording settings are programmable. In addition, the 'Monitor' function transfers the received audio data to an intended device.
Position and Status Information
GPS position and status information from the IP501H/IP501M LTE transceivers can be received and transferred to a PC to track the location of the radio users or a user in a vehicle. * GPS mapping software is required for GPS data.
Serial Pass-Through Function
The Serial Pass-through function enables you to connect a serial device to the VE-PG4 to extend the communication range between the connected device and a controller PC. The virtual serial port software for Windows® PC is supplied with the VE-PG4.
SIP Server and IP-PBX Functions
The built-in simple SIP server enables you to assign IP phone numbers with extension groups. The VE-PG4 can be connected to external SIP server as a client. The following IP-PBX settings are programmable:
• Voice Phonebook
• DID (Direct Inward Dialing)
• Used with Panasonic KX-UT and KX-HDV series IP phones
• Call log
• Extension presence
• Phone number routing
• Outside line regulations
• Caller prioritisation
• External call limiting
• SIP conferencing
Router Functions with VPN Tunnel
The VE-PG4 supports LAN, DHCP client, Static IP or PPPoE connections. The VPN function creates a secure IP tunnel connection over the Internet.
Half-width 1U Form Design
The VE-PG4 occupies only half the width of a 19-inch rack. It can be functionally installed with repeaters, switching hubs and other equipment. LTE (4G)/3G antenna bases with 1.5 m (4.9 ft) of cable are supplied in case antennas need to be relocated for better reception.
Online Firmware Update
The VE-PG4 supports automatic and online firmware update functions, for remote maintenance. Settings can be saved to a backup file, and easily restored.
• SYSLOG and SNMP
• Telnet and SSH
• Ping Test and Traceroute Test
• Abnormal condition monitoring, such as LAN port link-down and SIP server registration error
• Administrator password
• SNTP server
• Security slot
Built-in Controller for the IP100H, IP Communication Terminal (Wireless LAN)
The VE-PG4 has a built-in IP100H IP communication terminal controller function that is capable of controlling up to 50 IP100H IP Communication Terminals. The IP100H can send and receive voice and pre-programmed text messages to the other units through the wireless LAN access points. The IP communication terminals are suitable for intra-building communication, which will communicate anywhere your network has Wireless LAN access.
Easy System to Set Up
The VE-PG4 programs almost all terminal configurations over the air. Individual PC programming through a cable connection is not required.
