Motorola - Capacity Plus

A number of repeaters can also be used to create more complex systems supporting more channel capacity and offering advanced features such as text messaging and individual calling.

Capacity Plus works in much the same way as Hytera’s XPT, Capacity plus is a multi-site digital trunking solution that allows you to cost-effectively increase the capacity of your Motorola Solutions repeaters. Handsets without a repeater talk directly to each other (back-to-back) but in this system the repeater is attached to an antenna and the handsets and programmed to talk directly to it. Because the repeater is considerably more powerful than a handset, the radio needs only to have enough transmitting power to reach the repeater. Using its increased power, the repeater then relays the signal to the other handsets on that channel. A combination of both back-to-back and repeater channels can be programmed into a radio for seamless operation.

So how does Capacity Plus look to improve this?

Let’s say you operate a warehouse and you have a conventional Tier II system as explained above, this system has 4 repeaters giving you 8 talk slots. These 8 slots allowed you to run 8 channels on your hand portables. The business is picking up and expanding quickly though and increased efficiency and the use of two-way communication and your looking to add a new department. This new department needs an additional 2 channels on the radio system, so what can we do?

We could add another repeater to the system thus giving us 10 channels and solving the problem, but it is neither cost effective or an efficient use of the hardware to keep adding new repeaters especially if all 10 talk “slots” are unlikely to be in use at the same time.

Furthermore, if we needed a system with 20, 30 or 50 channels do we keep adding repeaters indefinitely? Do we need to buy 50 licences for each of these channels to operate on?

Here's where Capacity Plus comes into play...

Motorola Solutions Capacity Plus allows repeater slots to become a dynamic resource, so that you can have more groups than physical slots. This means that groups are no longer bound to a slot on a repeater, when you press the transmit button on the radio the radio system will automatically assign you a free slot. This allows you to have a near unlimited number of channels assuming that at no one time you have more simulations transmissions than you do slots (2 per repeater).

Highlights of Motorola Solutions Capacity Plus

WAVE 3000
You also have the opportunity to integrate Android and iOS mobile devices into your network. WAVE 3000 is an Enterprise Push-To-Talk over Broadband solution. It uses a free app from Google Play or the App Store to connect over Wi-Fi or cellular to a gateway in your MOTOTRBO Capacity Plus system. For those who need extra reach, choice and flexibility, WAVE 3000 is the ideal choice.


Simple expansion, flexible networking
The individual repeaters in the XPT system are connected with each other via an IP network. As a result, apart from XPT repeaters, you will need only IP switches, routers and an antenna connection suitable for your aims in order to set up the mobile radio system. No dedicated system controller hardware is required since calls are set up centrally in the XPT system.

If your requirements for your radio system should change, the XPT enables you to quickly respond, in order to increase your channel capacity. To do so, you need only expand the repeater site using additional repeaters and connecting them to your IP network.

One XPT site can consist of up to 8 voice repeaters (providing up to 16 communication channels) and up to 8 dedicated data repeaters. Up to 16 sites can be connected together to provide wide area coverage.

Here's where Capacity Plus comes into play...

Linked Capacity Plus from Motorola allows upto 15 Capacity Plus sites to be linked over a local IP network or the internet. Linked capacity plus, put simply, is the joining together of capacity plus systems over a wider area using an IP network.

If you need to communicate to a large field force across a wide area with a scalable, easy-to-use system, then Linked Capacity Plus is your cost-effective solution. Leveraging advanced repeater software, it is available in both single-site and wide-area configurations. Whether teams need to talk to each other in the field or back at the office or they need to use data applications such as text messaging, location tracking or work order tickets, Linked Capacity Plus makes their work safer and their work day more productive.
