Link Communications has introduced a software solution that enables first responders to remotely operate the company’s Tactical Communications Bridge (TCB-2) interoperability solution over an Ethernet port or a network. The TCB-2 allows up to 10 radios of different brands to reliably communicate over different frequencies, and allows the creations of five different talk groups, the company said.

An interconnect option enables analog telephone lines to be interfaced with the TCB-2, a useful feature for first responders who have traveled out of region. For example, the TCB-2 would call a user on his cell phone when the user’s emergency network became active and then connect the user automatically into the communications bridge.
