Scalable dPMR Digital

Radio Trunking with


Seamless Migration
from MPT1327

Fylde Micros NEW Multi-Lingo System,


the gold standard in radio trunking
The design team at our development centre in Blackpool, England have worked

Fylde Micros
NEW Multi-Lingo
System

tirelessly to complete what is the most sophisticated and complex design


ever to come from Fylde Micro. Fyldes goal with the Multi-Lingo controller is
provide network operators and radio users the very best in radio trunking whilst
minimising investment risk and maximising choice.
Multi-Lingo is designed from the ground-up as a multi-protocol platform,
more importantly, it allows different protocols to talk to one another.
Multi-Lingo can be enabled to use digital dPMR, digital DMR and analogue
MPT 1327 . Multi-Lingo systems provide the network operator with an easy and
flexible migration scheme from legacy MPT systems.
Fylde has partnered with leading manufacturers to ensure seamless integration
with new and existing repeater equipment. Fyldes Multi-Lingo is fully
digital throughout; both control and speech paths are conveyed between all
nodes via IP.

Cross Protocol Numbering


MPT1327 and dPMR have different numbering
schemes. To enable communication between
these protocols some form of translation must
be provided. Multi-Lingo has translation tables
to ensure that dPMR users can be included in
MPT both individual and group calls and vice
versa. The intention is to have no restriction on
protocol to protocol communication.

Next Generation SYSCON-Suite


To complement the new controller Fylde has
created a revolutionary network administration
interface that incorporates asset tracking, a
SIP based dispatcher, all available via a web
browser.

For the foreseeable future Fylde will continue to


manufacture and support its 3rd generation range of
dedicated MPT 1327 analogue systems.
This 3rd generation rugged, modular equipment is world renowned for its trouble
free performance. Fylde prides itself on long term support of all its products so
users can be confident of at least ten years support. And of course, 1st / 2nd
and 3rd generation Fylde trunking can interface to Multi-Lingo via the legacy
gateway further increasing the useful lifetime of the system.
MPT 1327 is an industry standard for trunked radio communications networks.
It was developed in 1988 by the British Department of Trade and Industry (DTI),
Although a British standard it is widely used in Europe, South Africa, New
Zealand, Australia and even China. Many countries have their own version of
numbering / user interface, the most notable being MPT1343 (UK), Germany
