The GW3-TRBO® software is designed to connect to a MOTOTRBO™ IP Site Connect, Capacity Max, Capacity Plus, Linked Capacity Plus, or Connect Plus system in one of two ways:

  • Through an IP Ethernet network (backbone) connection (preferred connection method)
  • Over the air through RF only (OTA) control station connection (alternative connection method)

GW3-TRBO for Connect Plus

Connect Plus — Backbone IP Connection

Preferred Connection Method

GW3-TRBO for Connect Plus

Connect Plus is a MOTOTRBO radio system configuration that allows trunking of voice and data calls across multiple sites over IP. It is able accommodate high volume over a wide area. Connect Plus is highly scalable to meet unique communication needs, and features the added benefits of TDMA digital technology, such as increased capacity and clear audio. Connect Plus connections translate their proprietary data into GW3-TRBO packets and send these packets to GW3-TRBO for processing. Some connections are bidirectional. This means that they receive and send data to their connection.

Connection to a Connect Plus MOTOTRBO system allows for two-way communication with all of the repeater(s) in the Connect Plus trunking network using the Motorola XRT9000 Gateway.

With GW3-TRBO, there is no limit to the number of talkgroups or subscribers that have their activity monitored and stored.

GW3-TRBO for Capacity Max

GW3-TRBO for Capacity Max

The new feature-rich, next generation Capacity Max (DMR Tier 3) trunking solution delivers enhanced capability and expanded capacity to the MOTOTRBO family of digital two-way radio. It is scalable from small, single-site systems to large, complex projects that demand greater capacity (up to 3,000 users per site) and higher levels of performance from voice and data-intensive communications deployments.

Connection to GW3-TRBO/Capacity Max

  • Call Information on the Air Traffic Information Access (ATIA) Interface is sent by UDP stream
  • Diagnostics are reported through the System Advisor. The System Advisor forwards diagnostics as SNMP Traps via Northbound Interface.
  • GW3-TRBO connects to the MNIS Voice/Radio Command (VRC) Gateway via authenticated TCP connection. Available commands are:
    • Radio Check
    • Selective Inhibit
    • Cancel Selective Inhibit
  • Client computers run GW3-TRBO software as a "client", which may be placed anywhere in the network.

GW3-TRBO for Linked Capacity Plus

LCP — Backbone IP Connection

Preferred Connection Method

GW3-TRBO for Linked Capacity Plus

The GW3-TRBO system will be connected to an Ethernet network with IP connectivity to the MOTOTRBO repeaters. A remote connection to a MOTOTRBO network through a repeater utilizes a UDP/IP connection over Ethernet, and therefore the repeater must only be reachable on a given network. GW3-TRBO fully supports peer network authentication if enabled in the repeater firmware or can connect to unauthenticated multi-site peer networks.

In order to accurately monitor and report on system activity, GW3-TRBO requires IP connectivity to all peers on a MOTOTRBO peer IP network. Motorola’s RDAC IP application functions in the same manner, and as such, is a valuable diagnostic tool for confirming IP connectivity between a host PC and all peers in the MOTOTRBO system. Determining whether or not a peer IP network configuration is compatible with GW3-TRBO is absolutely crucial and should always be verified with the RDAC IP application before attempting connection with GW3-TRBO.

There is no GW3-TRBO imposed limit to the number of repeaters, talkgroups or subscribers that have their activity monitored and stored on a Linked Capacity Plus network.  GW3-TRBO will report all MOTOTRBO activity that occurs between radios and repeaters on the network.

GW3-TRBO for IPSC

IP Site Connect Repeater — Backbone IP Connection

Preferred Connection Method

GW3-TRBO for IP Site Connect - Simple

The GW3-TRBO system will be connected to an Ethernet network with IP connectivity to the MOTOTRBO repeater(s). A remote connection to a MOTOTRBO™ network through a repeater utilizes a UDP/IP connection over Ethernet, and therefore the repeater must only be reachable on a given network. GW3-TRBO fully supports peer network authentication if enabled in the repeater firmware or can connect to unauthenticated multi-site peer networks.

Connection to an IP Site Connect (IPSC) MOTOTRBO system as a fully compatible "peer" allows for two-way communication with all of the repeater(s) in the IPSC network. GW3-TRBO is able to send Inbound Signaling Word (ISW) messages back to the repeaters and individual radios connected to the IPSC network to allow for radio commands such as Radio Inhibits and Radio Checks to be issued.
