Kenwood expands the capabilities of their NEXEDGE NX-Series digital/analog mobile and portable radios with an MPT-1327 trunking protocol option.

The NX-Series with MPT option can be programmed in MPT analog mode and NXDN digital trunk/convention mode for parallel operations, facilitating the transition to very narrowband NEXEDGE operation.

The MPT option is available on the NX-200/300, NX-200S/300S and NX-210 portables and NX-700/800 mobiles with additional radios to be added in Q1 2012. NEXEDGE radios are deployed in public safety, government and business and industry.
