IP Network Controller (IPNC)

The IPNC acts as a bridge between the wired portions of the network, such as a LAN and dispatching software, and the wireless portion of the network, including base stations and mobile radios. Connectivity is achieved via RJ45 Ethernet cable between the IPNC and the LAN. Connectivity to the tower sites is achieved via Ethernet connection.

The IP Network Controller (IPNC) is an intelligent router, routing and scheduling the mobile users’ data traffic. It’s native IP platform ensures the reliable transfer of information from wired networks to mobile computer users. The IPNC manages bandwidth allocation, multi-access protocols, hand-offs, load leveling, SNMP reporting, wireless network synchronization as well as time slot allocation.

The IPNC is scalable in capacity and price, from single-site management to statewide responsibilities. Optimal fault tolerant configurations allow for multiple controllers at multiple locations, to ensure that if a site or controller unit goes down, another IPNC is automatically called to manage the network.

The IPNC is available in rack or tower configurations.
