How it Works
Motorola Solutions and other Project 25 manufacturers understand the importance of having standards to ensure interoperability among multiple P25 systems and manufactured equipment Motorola believes that the entire community is best served with a rigorous and standardized approach to verifying interoperability.
Supporting the Project 25 standard
Motorola Solutions supports the P25 Compliance Assessment Program and has institutionalized the P25 Compliance Assessment Program in our product development, testing, and factory procedures.
Working with the public safety community
Motorola Solutions is dedicated to working closely with our customers, industry, government and standards partners to ensure that the P25 standard achieves its stated interoperability objectives. P25 compliance is determined by evaluating equipment from a single or multiple manufacturers against a subset of standardized tests published by TIA and approved by Project 25. These standardized tests are part of the full P25 suite of standard documents published by TIA.
Defining the program
The subset of tests that P25/TIA consider appropriate to support interoperable communications are published as TIA Telecommunication System Bulletins (TSB). DHS then issues a Compliance Assessment Bulletin (CAB) based on the TSB. Equipment suppliers use DHS-recognized laboratories to conduct CAP testing on their products. Based on the test results of a recognized lab a manufacturer may create and issue a formal Summary Test Report and Suppliers Declaration of Compliance (SDoC). These documents provide information about a specific manufacturer’s P25 equipment functionality and the types of "P25 Compliance" relevant to that equipment.
