Network). 2. The PORT SU field (Interfaces >ARS Settings) in MOTOTRBO DDMS Administrative Client matches the ARS UDP Port field in MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility (Advanced >Networks). 25 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration 3 SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration To connect the system to SmartPTT Plus, you need to configure the radioserver settings, which can be done using the special software application SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. In this document we will review the main settings of the radioserver, that are required for the LCP configuration of the system. The configuration process will include the following steps: 1. Run SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, which you have already downloaded and installed, as described in SmartPTT Software Installation. 2. In the setting tree on the left, right-click on MNAI Networks, point to Add and click MNAI. 26 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration 3. In the opened window specify the following settings of the future LCP network. Name - add network name. Network ID - specify unique ID of the network. The network ID must not match any ID of the other SmartPTT Radioserver networks. Peer ID - enter unique ID of the virtual repeater in the network. The virtual repeater ID must not match any of the other repeater IDs in this network. Interface - add local IP address of the virtual repeater in the network. This IP address is used by the other virtual repeaters as the main gateway for connection with repeaters over the network. 27 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration Port - set up port number of the virtual repeater. It should differ from the corresponding ports in other networks. Master repeater address (host:port) - specify IP address and port number of the Master repeater (see Master IP and Master UDP Port in MOTOTRBO CPS). In this example it is 10.150.0.20:50000. Click Test to check connection between the virtual and Master repeaters. Authentication Key - enter repeater authorization key (to be equal to the Authentication Key in the repeater settings in MOTOTRBO CPS). In this example we are not setting any authentication keys. Network Type - select Linked Capacity Plus. Connect type - select Voice + Data. In the Site Priority Configuration table set priorities by clicking on the arrows on the right to the table. Priorities should be set on the basis of radioserver proximity to the site. The closer the radioserver to the site, the higher priority it should have. 28 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration 4. Configure slot parameters. In order to do that, go to Slot 1 in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. Name - specify the name of the slot. ID - set unique ID of a virtual control station corresponding to the network slot. Remember that it should match ARS Radio ID, TMS Radio ID and MNIS ID, in this example it is 1. CAI Network - CAI-network ID. Use the default value of 12 (must match MOTOTRBO CPS settings). CAI Network for Groups - CAI-network for groups ID. Use the default value of 225 (must match CAI Group Network in MOTOTRBO CPS settings). Emergency Alarm Confirmation - select this check box if you need the emergency alarm be 29 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration acknowledged. Private Call Confirmed - select this check box if you need set private calls on the current digital channel as confirmed. Allow Transmit Interrupt - select this check box if you need the ability to interrupt a radio subscriber. In this example we are not going to enable any privacy mode. 5. Configure group parameters. To do that, click on Groups. Parameters of wide area and local groups are set in the Control Station Groups window. In order to display wide area groups by the SmartPTT Dispatcher application, add necessary groups in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, define group identifiers which correspond to the identifiers of the wide area groups in the repeater MOTOTRBO CPS settings and select Wide in the Site Number field. In this example we have two wide area groups and two local groups, so we add them into SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. Groups not specified in the repeater settings are regarded as local groups. Local group call does not go beyond the site where the call is initiated. To add local groups, just add them in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, define their identifiers and select site number from the list in the Site Number field. Note: Wide area and local group identifiers must be different. 30 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration 6. Configure MNIS and DDMS settings for data transmission under MNIS/DDMS Settings. 1) In the CAI Network field specify the CAI-network ID. It must match the value in the corresponding field in the radio MOTOTRBO CPS settings. In this case it is 12. 2) In the MNIS settings select Local Socket in the Socket type field since the MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility application is installed on the same PC as SmartPTT Radioserver. 3) In the Interface field select the IP address of MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility. It must match the IP address specified in the Tunnel IP Address field of MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility. 4) In the MNIS ID field set up the Common Air Interface (CAI) ID of the MNIS in the radio network. The ID is used by other calling radios when addressing MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service. Make sure MNIS ID matches the MNIS Application ID field in the General tab in MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility. It is also recommended that MNIS ID matches the Slot Channel ID field value in the channel settings of the repeater. 31 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration 5) In the TMS Port and Telemetry Port fields specify ports where the radioserver will expect text messages and telemetry data. The ports should match the ports set in the TMS UDP PORT and Telemetry UDP Port fields in MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility (Advanced >Network). 6) Under the DDMS settings specify Server Address, i.e. IP address of the PC with the MOTOTRBO DDMS Administrative Client application installed, and port number of the DDMS server. The port number in this 32 smartptt.com SmartPTT Radioserver Configuration field must match the port number in the PortWatcher field of the MOTOTRBO DDMS Administrative Client (Interfaces >Watcher Settings). 7. Save changes by clicking Save . To cancel the changes made, click the Restore button . All the changes, made after the last save, will be restored.To apply the saved changes you must restart the service.
