Icom launches an LTE/PoC mobile radio terminal for commercial vehicles

Icom has launched the IP501M, a LTE/PTT over Cellular (PoC) mobile radio, to complete its range of LTE radio products.

As the IP501M uses public mobile networks, it offers users nationwide or European PTT coverage. The IP501M has the same Man Machine Interface (MMI), operating menu and key layout as Icom’s IP501H/IP503H handportables. It also supports full duplex operation, allowing users to talk and receive at the same time during individual calls and group calls. As the device uses public mobile networks, it doesn’t require a radio licence and can be used in conjunction with the optional HM-230HB command microphone, which gives users a have a display and 10-keypad control handheld-like interface. The IP501M can also be connected via Bluetooth to wireless headsets for hands-free operation.

Ian Lockyer, marketing manager at Icom UK said, ‘Our LTE radio system is perfect for any transport company providing [an] incredibly simple, secure full duplex solution at a reasonable cost with nationwide coverage.’
