Capacity Max Overview
High-performance, Next Generation Digital Trunking
The MOTOTRBO Capacity Max trunked radio system is built on a distributed architecture for voice and data. Control is centralized, but traffic routing is optimized to minimize cost and maximize performance.
Capacity Max goes beyond the core interoperability of the DMR standard to bring you enhanced functionality. Features and applications such as Digital Emergency and Work Order Ticketing give you the tools you need to make your business successful.
Central Management for Complete Control
Capacity Max gives you centralized control of everything you need to manage your system. System management software gives you command of infrastructure, devices and talk groups, all organized in a logical way to make you more efficient and effective. Updating and upgrading is easier too, with processes for pushing out software and firmware patches to the system server, infrastructure and radios.
Security is a core component of the Capacity Max trunked radio system. All voice, data and control traffic within the IP network is encrypted, and all radios are securely authenticated. You can even remotely disable and re-enable a device if it is misplaced or stolen.
Capacity Max fits seamlessly into existing MOTOTRBO systems, allowing you to easily transition to Capacity Max via a simple, software update.
Increased Capacity, Smooth Scalability
MOTOTRBO Capacity Max makes it easy for you to grow your system as your needs evolve. A system can support up to 250 sites with up to 3,000 users per site and up to 100 voice talkpaths.
Up to six additional data repeaters per site support intensive text and data use, GPS, SCADA and Alarm Management. Compatible with our wide portfolio of MOTOTRBO radios, you have the flexibility to tailor the solution to your operations.
DMR Tier III Compliant
The system supports all the innovative features you’d expect from MOTOTRBO, from advanced location tracking to long text messaging and enhanced security. For customers who need a system that supports other vendors’ radios, Capacity Max can be run in DMR Tier III “Interoperability” mode with these features disabled.
High Resiliency, High Availability
Capacity Max has many layers of redundancy, so that no single failure can bring your system down. Optional redundant controllers, IP switches and site repeaters can be equipped. You can also provision a second control channel per site for ultra-high system availability.
