C4i recently released version 9 of its SwitchplusIP interoperable communications system.

Release 9.0 introduced a P25 interface for command center LT and mobile-dismount platforms. The new interface will allow mobile users to access multiple P25 radio networks without connectivity to a base station (i.e. direct radio-to-radio or console-to-radio communication).

The other main improvement of Release 9.0 is derived from the inclusion of a radio interface unit processor upgrade, which provides faster access to the database for configuration. Additionally, users will have the ability to perform remote software upgrades and automatically receive system updates.
