Zetron announced that its Advanced Communications System (Acom) was a key component of the IP-based CORP25 radio-network communications solution that EADS Defense & Security implemented for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The RCMP used the EADS solution to maintain land-mobile radio voice communications security during the G8 and G20 summits held in Huntsville and Toronto, Ontario.

Acom is a fully digital switching and multiplexing system. Acom provided an IP-based, Project 25 (P25) interface to the EADS CORP25 trunked network. The Acom system used in this solution conforms to the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 for digital encryption, offering a sophisticated level of security that few systems can provide.

Rapidly deployed in under seven months, the CORP25 digital radio communications network was developed not only to serve the RCMP’s critical communications needs during the two summits, but also to provide ongoing safety and security for the RCMP within the boundaries of Ontario. The P25 digital radio communication network will be part of Ontario’s new Central Region Operation Communication System.
