RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
RadioPro™ provides remote access to 2-way radios via IP Networks. This “Dispatch over IP” (DoIP) solution consists
of PC-based software allowing voice and data communications between PC users and 2-way radio subscribers.
Communications with radio subscribers is also possible for remote mobile users using Android or iOS devices. A
RadioPro system consists of at least one RadioPro IP Gateway (server) and at least one client (Dispatch™, Talk™, or
Mobile™) with an IP network connecting the RadioPro components.
System Components
CTI’s Dispatch over IP system is based on Server-Client architecture. System components are described below:

RadioPro IP Gateway Kit (CTI Part # S2-61815) is the hardware
interface that connects a mobile radio (control station) to an IP network.
The IP Gateway is the Server for the control station radio connected to
it. Each control station radio used for voice requires one IP Gateway.
System components, such as IP Gateways and clients, may be located together or separated geographically
and connected via a Wide Area Network (WAN) or Virtual Private Network (VPN). Each IP Gateway
requires a static IP address. Each IP Gateway includes a cable to connect it to the Control Station radio. For
more information, see the following documents:
RadioPro IP Gateway - Installation and Configuration Manual, Document # S2-61781
RadioPro System Brochure

RadioPro Dispatch Client (CTI Part #s S1-61700
Core, S1-61701 Voice Module, S1-61702 GPS
Module, S1-61703 Telemetry Module) is a dispatch
console for PCs that provides voice dispatching to
multiple simultaneous radio channels or talk groups,
as well as GPS/AVL, Telemetry, Text Messaging, and
Voice Logging. Windows 8 Pro or Windows 7 Pro
operating system is required. System components,
such as Dispatch clients and IP Gateways, may be
located together or separated geographically and
connected via a Wide Area Network (WAN) or Virtual Private Network (VPN). For more information, see
the following information:
RadioPro Dispatch Client Installation and Configuration Guide, Document # S2-61785
RadioPro Dispatch Client User Guide, Document # S2-61786
RadioPro Dispatch Client Data Sheet
RadioPro System Brochure

Talk™ Client is a software application for PCs that provides voice dispatching to a single
radio channel or talk group. Other features include Voice Logging for 24 hours, Text
Messaging, and channel steering. Windows 8 or Windows 7 operating system is required.
System components, such as Talk Clients and IP Gateways, may be located together or
separated geographically and connected via a Wide Area Network (WAN) or Virtual
Private Network (VPN). For more information, see the following documents:
RadioPro Talk Client Installation and User Guide, Document # S2-61783
RadioPro System Brochure

Installation and Configuration Guide

Mobile™ is a mobile app for Android™ and iPhone™/iPad™ that provides remote access to
a 2-way radio system for voice communications. This app is especially beneficial in trunked
radio systems where there may be many talk groups. The Mobile app is useful over cellular
or Wi-Fi networks when you are on-the-go and outside the coverage of your radio system, yet
still need radio communications. For more information, see the following documents:
Mobile App Quick-Start Guide, Document # S2-61787
RadioPro System Brochure

Control Station Radio - A control station radio must be used as the interface to the radio system, and
connects to a RadioPro IP Gateway using the rear accessory/communications port. Each control station
radio used for voice requires one IP Gateway. Radio models that can be used for a Control Station radio
and provide full radio functionality from a RadioPro client include:
 Kenwood NEXEDGE: NX-800
 Motorola MOTOTRBO: XPR4550, XPR5550 (North America)
DGM5500, DGM8500 (Latin America)
DM4000 (Europe)
XiR M8260 (Asia Pacific)
Other radio models may be used with limited functionality by using the “Basic RxTx” configuration. This
simple interface provides only talk and listen.

Personal Computer or Workstation is required to host the RadioPro Dispatch client or RadioPro Talk
client. Console accessories may include microphone and speakers (or headset), Push-to-Talk footswitch,
and touch screen monitor.

RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
Architecture
The IP Gateways interface the radio system to an IP network. One IP Gateway is required for each control station radio
used for voice. The IP Gateways and control station radios can be centrally located or scattered among different locations
using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) such as the Internet.
Each IP Gateway in a RadioPro system acts as the server for the Control Station Radio connected to it, and ensures easy
wide-area deployment. Since there is not a server PC, the architecture reduces “single point-of-failure” concerns.
A system may have a mixture of RadioPro Dispatch and RadioPro Talk Clients, as well as RadioPro Mobile apps running
on mobile devices. These Clients may be centrally located or scattered among different locations using a Virtual Private
Network (VPN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) such as the Internet.
System Maximum Build-out
A RadioPro system may have maximum components listed below.

Installation and Configuration Guide
Environmental Considerations
The operating environment for the IP Gateway must be within limits noted in the specifications, as well as other
conditions. Do not install equipment in an area where any of the following exist:





Extreme temperature and humidity beyond limits listed in the specifications
High EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference) or RFI (Radio Frequency Interference)
High dust concentration
High ESD (Electrostatic Discharge)
Extreme Vibration
RF Interference
To prevent RF interference, Mobile radio antennas should be kept a minimum of 24 feet from the RadioPro IP Gateway
when in high-power mode, or a minimum of 12 feet when in low-power mode. Portable radios should be kept a
minimum of 6 feet from the RadioPro IP Gateway.
Lightning and Fire Protection
Lightning protection should be implemented at both the equipment and at the point of entry of the building. Lightning
protection and power transient protection should be implemented to reduce the risk of fire caused by these phenomena.
Circuit breakers and fuses offer the best methods for preventing extended over-current and over-voltage conditions.
Power Requirements
When using the supplied AC power adapter, each IP Gateway requires 100-240VAC, 200mA maximum.
When connecting a DC supply directly to the IP Gateway, each IP Gateway requires the following input, depending on
the IP Gateway Serial Number:
IP Gateway Serial Numbers
Voltage Range
1000 through 3153
11.5 – 12.5 VDC
3154 and higher
12.0 – 32.0 VDC
RadioPro Version Match
RadioPro Dispatch clients, Talk clients, and IP Gateways must have compatible versions in order to communicate with
each other. Compatibility can be ensured when the first two digits of the version match. (The third digit indicates a minor
revision, and does not need to match.) See Appendix for tables of compatibility.
Static IP Address
Each RadioPro IP Gateway requires a static IP address. The IP Gateway must have IP Network Parameters configured
using ICU.exe (IP Configuration Utility) before connecting to an active network. Contact your IT administrator to provide
a static IP Address for each RadioPro IP Gateway, along with its Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.
8
RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
Accessing the RadioPro IP Gateway using Port Forwarding
If RadioPro clients (such as Dispatch, Talk, or Mobile) will access an IP Gateway from a different IP network, then the
IT Administrator must configure port forwarding within the firewall or router(s) that separates the RadioPro IP Gateway
from the clients. This is also true when one or more of the clients listed above will connect to a RadioPro IP Gateway
from the Internet. See Step 5. Configure Port Forwarding on Firewall Device on Page 37 for more information.
Licensing
RadioPro Dispatch Clients
Each PC that runs the RadioPro Dispatch client requires a USB hardware key and software license file. The USB hardware
key contains an encrypted Serial Number. The license file with the same Serial Number specifies the number of IP
Gateways that can be connected using RadioPro Dispatch. The USB hardware key must remain installed in the PC when
running RadioPro Dispatch. Connections for additional IP Gateways can be purchased and added to the license file at
any time.
RadioPro Talk Clients and RadioPro Mobile Apps
For client types other than RadioPro Dispatch, a license file that is factory-installed on the IP Gateway allows User
Connections from Talk clients (for PCs and Notebooks) and Mobile apps (for Android™ and iPhone™/iPad™). Each IP
Gateway is shipped with a factory-installed license file allowing at least one User Connection from these client types.
Additional User Connections can be purchased when the IP Gateway is purchased, or can easily be added to an IP Gateway
that is already installed. User Connection add-ons can be purchased for the IP Gateway license file, up to a maximum of
40. The number of User Connections purchased should be the maximum number of simultaneous connections from PCs
running the Talk client, and mobile devices (Android™ and iPhone™/iPad™) running the Mobile app.
The number of User Connections installed on the license file is indicated on the serial number label located on the bottom
of the IP Gateway.

Installation and Configuration Guide
Additional CPS Setup for Connect Plus Channels
In a Connect Plus radio, the Connect Plus Option Board is configured with the various Talk Groups of the radio
system. The Connect Plus Option Board CPS is used to configure these various Talk Groups, or “Zones”.
However, for a radio that is used as a control station, since the Connect Plus Option Board cannot pass this
information out the rear connector, an application (such as RadioPro Dispatch, Talk, or Mobile) does not have
knowledge of these Connect Plus “Zones” (talk groups).
Further, MOTOTRBO CPS is used to configure a radio for only one digital “Channel”, i.e., “Transportation”.
Control of the talk group selection is passed to the Option Board by enabling both the “Option Board” and
“Option Board Trunking” parameters. (See 7f. in the screen shot below.)
In order to allow selection of a talk group from a RadioPro client, the following configuration must be performed
for a Control Station radio using MOTOTRBO CPS.
e.
In the “Channels” folder, add a quantity of channels to match the number of “zones” configured in the
Connect Plus Option Board. In the following screen shot, “Channel1”, “Channel2”, etc., have been added
to match the number of “Zones” configured in the Connect Plus Option Board. The Channel Names are
not important since these names are not transferred out of the rear connector of the control station radio;
only the generic names of “Channel1”, “Channel2”, etc. will be sent to a RadioPro client.
f.
For each of the added channels, enable both the “Option Board” and “Option Board Trunking” parameters.
It is not necessary to change any other parameters.
7f.
7e.
After writing the CPS configuration to the control station radio, the radio will send messages to the
RadioPro IP Gateway and indicate that the radio has been programmed for the “additional” talk groups.
ICU.exe can be used to view and configure the zones and channels as follows:
i.
Use the “Zones/Channels” tab in ICU.exe to view Channel names as they will appear in
RadioPro clients. By default, they will be generically named “Channel1”, Channel2”, etc.
ii.
If it is desired to display more descriptive channel names, right-click on a channel name to edit it.
iii.
If it is desired that a channel or zone not be displayed in a RadioPro client, click on the zone or
channel, and then un-check the visible parameter near the bottom of this tab page.
iv.
Write the new configuration to the RadioPro IP Gateway by choosing Write Settings from the
Gateway menu.

Writing CPS Parameters to Radio:
After writing the CPS parameters to the MOTOTRBO Control Station radio, remove the programming cable from
the Control Station radio. A programming cable connected to the front mic connector on the Control Station radio
will prevent communications to a RadioPro IP Gateway from the Rear Accessory Connector. Therefore, when a
cable is connected to the Rear Accessory Connector to connect a RadioPro IP Gateway or a PC (during
programming), ensure that the programming cable has been disconnected from the front mic connector.

Installation and Configuration Guide
Enter appropriate parameters for each of the tabs:
1) General tab
Version indicates the current software version of this
RadioPro IP Gateway. RadioPro Software for the IP Gateway
and Clients (Dispatch, Talk, and Mobile for mobile devices)
must all have compatible versions in order to communicate
with each other. Compatibility occurs when the first two
digits of the version match. (The third digit indicates a minor
revision, and does not need to match.)
Gateway Name factory default is “Default Gateway”. If
RadioPro Dispatch client will be used to connect to this IP
Gateway, this name should be changed to a descriptive name
that will be recognizable at the RadioPro Dispatch client. Two
lines of 24 characters each can be displayed to identify a radio
controller in the RadioPro Dispatch client.
Admin Password factory default is “admin”. This password
is needed to make changes to the IP Gateway configuration using ICU.exe. This password should
be changed from the default value to prevent unauthorized changes. This is also the default
password for the Talk client “admin” account. The Talk client “admin” account password may be
modified from a Talk client.
User Password factory default is “user”. This password is needed when adding an IP Gateway in
the “Manage Devices” window of the RadioPro Dispatch client. This password should be changed
from the default value to prevent unauthorized changes.
NTP Server should be enabled when RadioPro Dispatch clients will connect to this IP Gateway,
and should contain the IP Address where the Network Time Server is running. If a Network Time
Server is not accessible by this IP Gateway on its network, then a Time Server should be installed
on an accessible PC; this PC could be one that is running the RadioPro Dispatch Client. Either an
IP address or a name recognized by the Domain Name Server can be entered. See Install Time
Server section of RadioPro Dispatch Software Installation Guide S2-61785 for more details.
Custom Local Time can be used if an NTP Server is not used. Enter the current date and time.
2) Accounts tab
The “admin” account is used for writing new parameters to
the IP Gateway using ICU.exe. The “admin” account is also
the default account for logging into the IP Gateway from a
RadioPro Talk client or RadioPro Mobile application.
The “admin” account cannot be Renamed or Deleted. It is
recommended that the password of the “admin” account be
changed from its default value of “admin” in order to prevent
unauthorized changes. This can be accomplished by selecting
“admin” from the list of accounts, and then clicking the
Change password button. In the Change password
window, type a new password in the Password text box,
retype it in the Retype text box, and then click the OK
button.
User accounts can be added for the purpose of logging into the
IP Gateway from RadioPro Talk clients and RadioPro Mobile applications. Click the Add button.
In the Add account window, enter the new Username, Password, and then click the OK
button.

Installation and Configuration Guide
3) Network tab
Do NOT use leading zeros for any of the address fields.
DHCP should NOT be selected unless an engineer at CTI
Products is consulted.
The default TCP Port # is 48222. This can normally be left
at its default value.
An entry for default Gateway is needed only if RadioPro
clients (Dispatch, Talk, Mobile) will be accessing this IP
Gateway from another network, or the Internet.
An entry for DNS Server is needed only if an NTP server
host name was specified in the General tab (instead of an IP
Address). If an NTP server host name is not specified, then
DNS Server should be blank or “0.0.0.0”.
4) License Key tab
This tab is used to transfer the License File between the IP
Gateway and CTI Products when an upgrade to the License is
purchased. The License File contains two parameters:

A value between 1 and 100 specifies the number of
simultaneous connections allowed to this IP Gateway
from users of RadioPro Talk clients and RadioPro
Mobile applications.

The radio model for which this IP Gateway is
configured: MOTOTRBO, NEXEDGE, or BASIC
RxTx.
34
RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
5) Radio-Specific tabs
NEXEDGE
When an IP Gateway has been licensed for use with a
NEXEDGE radio, the following tabs will be allow parameter
input.
NEXEDGE Radio tab: Enter appropriate radio ID values for
the fields on this tab.
Zone/Channels tab: For each Zone programmed into
the Control Station radio, enter channel information
parameters.
MOTOTRBO
MOTOTRBO Radio tab
Use the ARS Subscriber Refresh Rate to set the time between
successive ARS (Automatic Registration Service) updates for
subscribers. The default value is 0.5 hours.
Other parameters on this tab are factory-default values, and
match the default parameters programmed into the Control
Station radio. Under normal circumstances, these values
should not be altered.
Zones/Channels Aliases tab
This list is downloaded from the connected MOTOTRBO radio
and will be displayed in a TurboVUi Dispatch client’s radio
controller. A Zone or Channel can be re-named by clicking on
it, then editing its name. If a name cannot be edited, be sure
that the MOTOTRBO radio is connected and powered on. In
Capacity Plus systems, the MOTOTRBO radio adds an
additional Zone to the list called “Channel Pool”. In most
cases, this should be hidden from the Dispatcher by clicking on
this “Channel Pool”, then removing the check mark in the
“Visible” box.
35
RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
GPS tab
If mapping locations of subscribers is required, place a check
mark next to Enable GPS Updates. Since this option will
increase the amount of radio transmissions, leave this
unchecked if GPS mapping is not needed.
Then choose a Minimum Poll Rate to set the minimum time
between successive GPS updates. Increasing this parameter
will decrease the number of GPS updates, thereby allowing
more channel bandwidth for voice conversations.
BASIC RxTx
Basic RxTx tab
Four signals are required to be interfaced between a
generic radio and an IP Gateway:
Receive Audio, Transmit Audio, Carrier, and PTT.
More details about these signals can be found in the
Appendix. Use this tab to specify the active state for
the PTT and Carrier signals.
g.
From the Gateway menu, click on Write Settings. Enter the Admin Gateway Password (factory default
password is “admin”), then close the configuration window for this IP Gateway.
h.
Remove the Ethernet cable between the RadioPro IP Gateway and the local PC or laptop used for configuration.
Repeat the above steps for each RadioPro IP Gateway.
36
RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
Step 4. Connect RadioPro IP Gateway to IP Network
After a RadioPro IP Gateway has been configured using ICU, it is safe to connect to a local area network.
Connect to an IP Network
Connect the RadioPro IP Gateway module to the IP network using the following steps:
a.
Connect one side of cable 89-10712 (or similar straight-through Cat 5 cable) to the RJ45 connector on the rear of the
RadioPro IP Gateway module.
b.
Connect the other end of cable 89-10712 to the network switch or router.
Step 5. Configure Port Forwarding on Firewall Device
If RadioPro clients (such as Dispatch, Talk, or Mobile) will access an IP Gateway from a different IP network, then the
IT Administrator must configure port forwarding within the firewall or router that separates the RadioPro IP Gateway
from other networks. This is also true when one or more of the clients listed above connects to a RadioPro IP Gateway
from the Internet.
The default IP port used by a RadioPro IP Gateway is TCP Port 48222. However, this may be changed using ICU.exe
on the Network tab.
The default IP port used by RadioPro clients is TCP Port 48222. However, any other port may be specified during the
login from any RadioPro client by specifying this port number as follows:
100.100.100.33:7777
where:
100.100.100.33 is the external or wide-area address of the firewall or router.
7777
is the external port of that firewall used for RadioPro IP Gateway.
If multiple RadioPro IP Gateways are located behind a firewall, they will each need a Port Forwarding rule. In this
case, the external port numbers specified for each rule must be unique.
See http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/ for detailed instructions for the specific router in use at your
site.

RadioPro IP Gateway
Installation and Configuration Guide
RADIOPRO IP GATEWAY OPERATION
Power-up
The Power Button can be used to power up or power down the unit by pressing it momentarily.
A watchdog circuit built into the IP Gateway monitors program operation. If the watchdog circuit detects that the program
is not functioning correctly, it will re-initialize the IP Gateway. This process may take up to two minutes. During this
process, RadioPro Dispatch or Talk clients will not have a connection or communication with the Control Station radio.
Indicators
A blue LED located on the Power Button indicates that power is applied to the IP Gateway.
A red LED located internally, but viewable through the vents on the left side of the IP Gateway indicates the functioning
of the Hardware Watchdog as follows:

“Slow Blinking” (2 seconds per blink) indicates that the IP Gateway is rebooting. This will normally occur
for a maximum of two minutes after power-up.

“Steady” illumination indicates that the IP Gateway software and hardware is operating correctly, and
follows the “Slow Blinking” boot-up period.

“Fast Blinking” (1 second per blink) indicates that the watch-dog circuitry has detected a problem, and that
re-booting will commence within 5 seconds.
