Launch is the central hub from which all modules are accessed. Each module’s overall status is displayed. Included in Launch:
The users, roles, and privileges defined in this module affect the display and function of each module’s GUI within GW3-TRBO.
The GW3-TRBO software is designed to connect to a MOTOTRBO IP Site Connect, Capacity Plus, Linked Capacity Plus, or Connect Plus system in one of two ways:
Alerts shows an icon in the Windows system tray:
SysLog reports GW3-TRBO service and module activity to one or more remote IP ports. Packet data can be received and parsed by third-party SysLog client software.
The Channel Screen provides a real-time view of decoded channel activity, diagnostics, busies and rejects.
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.
The KPI interface displays real-time, interactive, and statistical information on WACN, System, Zone, and Sites.
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.
The Alias Manager provides the means to create easily recognized names and additional information radio system resources:
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.
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 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.
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.
