GW3-TRBO Modules

Building blocks that put the “performance” in system management


Scalable Modular Design

Because of its unique modular design, GW3-TRBO® can be easily tailored to individual needs, and features can be added as needed.

Additional Modules


The Channel Screen provides a real-time view of decoded channel activity, diagnostics, busies and rejects.

  • Activity is displayed for each channel on individual virtual repeater channel blocks
  • Module is customizable in a multiple of configurations, including, but not limited to:
    • Font sizes and colors
    • Panel sizes and colors
    • Background images
    • Information displayed
  • Resize the window or stretch it across multiple monitors

System Activity

The Activity screen shows real-time activity from each GW3-TRBO input connection. These input connections can vary from single-site connections monitoring a control channel to multi-site connections receiving data from a data stream.

  • Monitor channel activity
  • Filter the packet types
  • Assign colors to specific packet types
  • Customize the font and column order of the activity list
  • Suppress duplicate packets
  • Pause the activity list
  • Print the activity list

Key Performance Indicators

The KPI interface displays real-time, interactive, and statistical information on WACN, System, Zone, and Sites.


    GW3-TRBO SkyView

    GW3-TRBO SkyView provides a geospatial view of an entire MOTOTRBO network. Each tower shows real-time system activity on every site, channel and slot. Emergencies and busies are clearly displayed. When RDAC alarms are present, additional details are just a click away.


    Emulating the familiar user interface of a car dashboard, SysVista provides a high level, at-a-glance real-time overview of the performance of a two-way communications network.

    SysVista refreshes every 1-5 seconds based on the live data it receives — from a single site system, up to a complex, multi-zoned network.

        • “Odometer” readings view total calls by hour, day, week, month, and year
        • Selectable views by site, zone, cluster and network
        • Visual and audible alerts based on user-defined thresholds

    Alias Manager

    The Alias Manager provides the means to create easily recognized names and additional information radio system resources:

        • Tags
        • Locations
        • Agencies
        • Status Sets
        • Message Sets
        • Systems
        • Talkgroups
        • Multigroups
        • IDs (radio IDs)
        • Zones
        • Sites
        • Channels (frequencies)

    Data Archiver

    The Data Archiver module archives decoded GW3-TRBO input packets to an SQL database. Data can be stored for months, even years with no loss of detail. Once a data packet is decoded, it is stored in one of several data tables. Generally, each packet type received by Archiver has a corresponding archive table in the database. For example, when Archiver receives a Call Alert packet, it stores this packet in the ARC_Call Alerts table.

    Affiliation Monitor

    The real-time connection state of a radio is displayed in the Affiliations screen. View connection activity at the system level or add resources (such as zones, sites, or groups) and view affiliation activity at the resource level.

    When a radio performs connection activity, the Affiliation module adds the radio to a list of connected radios. This list entry contains the radio’s current system, zone, site, group (if any) and last activity details. When the radio issues additional activity, the radio’s current system, zone, site, talkgroup (if any) and last activity are updated.

    Each time a user opens the Affiliations GUI, it queries the Affiliation module for a list of currently affiliated radios and populates the resource windows. The Affiliation module will continue to gather affiliation information even while the GUI is closed. Features include radio search options as well as easy access to radio history.

    System Summary

    System Summary compiles statistics for each connected system, zone, site and channel. These statistics are used to display up-to-the-minute system usage from up to 24 hours prior through a variety of graphs and charts. Data may be simply captured and printed from this screen. GW3-TRBO Reports provide comprehensive information on stored data.


    The Trigger module gives GW3-TRBO an easily configurable way to alert a user of activity (or absence of activity) in the system. This can range from PTTs for certain radio IDs, lack of activity from a certain radio, RDAC alarms or other system metrics. Configuriging a new trigger event is similar to setting up mail processing rules in Microsoft Outlook, stepping the user through the process with a series of questions/options. When a trigger event occurs, an alert can be sent to the GW3-TRBO GUI or can be sent to an external relay device.

    Group View

    The Group module provides a real-time view of activity on selected talkgroups and individuals quickly and easily. The Group module shows each group’s activity and all individual activity for the MOTOTRBO system in customizable windows.

    The Group screen can display up to nine talkgroups simultaneously, and user can customize colors, fonts, andsizes. Emergency alarms are also visible through the Group module.
