NEWS WPCS endorses Uniden’s enhanced SMR protocol
Wireless Professional Communications Services (WPCS) has endorsed ESAS, Fort Worth, TX-based Uniden America’s enhanced SMR protocol as its wireless network technology. WPCS is a national consortium of independent operators that are working together to remain competitive in the wireless marketplace. WPCS is also working with other SMR groups in creating a new wireless network standard.
ESAS will be used throughout those systems operated by WPCS members. Although these systems are extensively based in the Northwest, coverage will extend throughout the upper section of the country, from Washington and Oregon to Michigan and down to Mississippi.
ESAS is Uniden’s extended protocol designed primarily for the worldwide analog SMR marketplace. It provides an enhanced feature set including unique identification numbers, individual mobile calling and control, as well as networking and tracking capability. ESAS provides additional subscriber features and validations, including additional ID codes, deadbeat disable function and mobile-to-mobile selective calling.
