INTRODUCTION – TURBOVUI SYSTEM OVERVIEW
TurboVUi™ provides remote access to MOTOTRBO radios via IP Networks. PC-based software allows voice
communications between PC users and 2-way radio subscribers. Communications with radio subscribers is also
possible for mobile users using Android or iOS devices. A TurboVUi system consists of at least one TurboVUi IP
Gateway (server) and at least one client (Dispatch™, Solo™, or Pocket™) with an IP network connecting the
TurboVUi components.
TURBOVUI COMPONENTS
The TurboVUi system is based on Server-Client architecture. The TurboVUi system components are described below:
• TurboVUi IP Gateway Kit (CTI Part # S2-61528)
This is hardware interface connects a MOTOTRBO XPR4550 control station radio to an IP network. The
IP Gateway is the Server for the control station radios connected to it. Each control station radio used for
voice requires one IP Gateway. A maximum of three additional control station radios used for GPS Data
Revert may share the voice IP Gateway. TurboVUi system components, such as IP Gateways, 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 XPR4550 Control Station radio. For more information, see the following documents:

Personal Computer or Workstation
A PC or workstation is required to host the TurboVUi Dispatch client or TurboVUi Solo client. Console
accessories may include microphone and speakers (or headset), Push-to-Talk footswitch, and touch screen
monitor.
ARCHITECTURE
The IP Gateways interface the radio system to an IP network, ensuring easy wide-area deployment without configuring
server PCs. 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.
A system may have a mixture of TurboVUi Dispatch and TurboVUi Solo Clients, as well as TurboVUi Pocket apps
running on mobile devices. Dispatch Clients, Solo Clients, and Pocket apps can be centrally located or scattered among
different locations using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) such as the Internet.

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 TurboVUi 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 TurboVUi 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, .25A maximum.
When connecting a DC supply directly to the IP Gateway, each IP Gateway requires 11.5 – 12.5 VDC, 2.5A
maximum. When the DC supply is a standard 13.8VDC used for battery recharging, use CTI’s Diode Dropping
assembly (S2-61593) in series between the 13.8VDC power supply and the IP Gateway.
STATIC IP ADDRESS
Each TurboVUi 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 TurboVUi IP Gateway, along with its Subnet Mask and Default
Gateway.
TURBOVUI SYSTEM PLANNER TEMPLATE
Use the System Planner Template at the end of this document to record IP addresses, device names, and passwords.
ACCESSING THE TURBOVUI IP GATEWAY USING PORT FORWARDING
If TurboVUi clients (such as Solo, Dispatch, or Pocket) 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 TurboVUi IP Gateway
from other networks. This is also true when one or more of the clients listed above will connect to a TurboVUi IP
Gateway from the Internet.
See section “Appendix - Configuring Port Forwarding on Routers” on Page 29 for more information.

LICENSING
TurboVUi Dispatch Clients
Each PC that runs the TurboVUi 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 TurboVUi Dispatch. The USB hardware key must remain installed in the
PC when running TurboVUi Dispatch. Connections for additional IP Gateways can be purchased and added to the
license file at any time.
TurboVUi Solo Clients and Pocket Apps
For client types other than TurboVUi Dispatch, a license file that is factory-installed on the IP Gateway allows
connections from Solo clients (for PCs and Notebooks) and Pocket apps (for Android™ and iPhone™/iPad™). Each IP
Gateway is shipped with a factory-installed license file allowing at least one connection. Additional connections can be
purchased with IP Gateway, or can easily be added to an IP Gateway that is already installed. Single or five-pack
connection add-ons can be purchased for the IP Gateway license file, up to a maximum of 36 connections. The number
of connections purchased should be the maximum number of simultaneous connections from PCs running the Solo
client, and mobile devices (Android™ and iPhone™/iPad™) running the Pocket app.
The number of connections installed on the license file is indicated on the serial number label located on the bottom of
the IP Gateway. The number of installed connections can also be determined from a connected TurboVUi Solo client if
logged in using the “admin” username using the following steps:
1.
From the Settings menu, choose Gateway.
2.
In the TurboVUi Gateway Settings window, click the Admin tab. The “Client Licenses” parameter will show
the number of purchased connections.
TURBOVUI VERSION MATCH
TurboVUi Software for the IP Gateway and Clients (Dispatch, Solo and Pocket 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 are identical. (The third digit indicates a minor revision, and does not need to match.)

ARS AND GPS SIGNALING
ARS SIGNALING
Applications such as TurboVUi often need to know the status of subscriber radios in a system. In order to satisfy this
requirement, subscriber radios can be required to register with the application using Automatic Registration Service
(ARS) messaging. The ARS Status message is reported by subscriber radios on a periodic basis to an application
referred to as the ARS Server. If the subscriber radio does not receive an ARS Acknowledgement message from the
ARS Server application, the subscriber radio will repeatedly resend the ARS Status message, flooding the channel with
data message traffic. A TurboVUi IP Gateway performs the ARS Server function and will respond to the ARS Status
message with an ARS Acknowledgement message. The ARS Acknowledgement message sent form the TurboVUi IP
Gateway includes an “ARS Subscriber Refresh Rate”. The “ARS Subscriber Refresh Rate” tells the subscriber radios
how often to resend ARS Status updates to the ARS Server, and is configured in the ARS tab of the ICU.exe. See the
MOTOTRBO System Planner (Section 3.1.3.2 Presence Notifier) and the diagrams below for additional details.
GPS SIGNALING
A LRRP (Location Request Response Protocol) request for GPS (Global Positioning System) status is initiated by a
TurboVUi IP Gateway. The target subscriber radio will respond with its GPS position data, which may also include
speed, time, and other parameters. The target subscriber radio can be requested to provide a response to either an
Immediate Location Request or a Triggered Location Request. An Immediate Location Request is answered by a
subscriber radio with a single GPS status message. A Triggered Location Request is answered by a subscriber radio
with periodic GPS status updates based on a time interval or an event such as radio key-up. Immediate and Triggered
Location Request configuration parameters can be found in the GPS tab of the ICU.exe. See the MOTOTRBO System
Planner and the diagrams below for additional details.

TurboVUi
System Planner
CONVENTIONAL DIGITAL SYSTEM WITHOUT DATA REVERT
In the following diagram, there are no dedicated Data Revert slots. In this case, the GPS Request message from the
TurboVUi IP Gateway and the GPS Data status message from the subscriber radio use the same Voice repeater slot
and Voice radio channel. Likewise, the ARS Status message from the subscriber radio and the ARS Acknowledgement
message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway use the same Voice repeater slot and Voice radio channel.
CPS Configuration
See CPS Configuration Tables on Page 25 for additional setup details for Control Station radios and Subscriber radios.

CONVENTIONAL DIGITAL SYSTEM WITH DATA REVERT
For Conventional Digital systems with Data Revert slots, one TurboVUi IP Gateway can support one Voice Control
Station Radio as well as three additional Data Revert Radios. The TurboVUi IP Gateway must have software version
5.1.5 or later.
When Data Revert slots are used in a system, data messages from a TurboVUi IP Gateway are sent using a Voice
radio and Voice repeater slot. On the other hand, data messages from a subscriber radio are sent using a Data Revert
repeater slot and a Data radio.
Specifically, a GPS Request message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway is sent using a Voice radio and repeater slot.
The corresponding GPS Data status message from the subscriber radio is sent using a Data Revert repeater slot and
radio..
Likewise, an ARS Status message from a subscriber radio is sent using a Data Revert repeater slot and radio. The
corresponding ARS Acknowledge message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway is sent using a Voice radio and repeater
slot.
CPS Configuration
The “GPS Revert” parameter in CPS (Channels > ZoneName > ChannelName) must specify one of the listed Data
Revert “transmit digital channels”.
See CPS Configuration Tables on Page 25 for additional setup details for Control Station radios and Subscriber radios.

IP SITE CONNECT SYSTEM WITHOUT DATA REVERT
In the following diagram, there are no dedicated Data Revert slots. In this case, the GPS Request message from the
TurboVUi IP Gateway and the GPS Data status message from the subscriber radio use the same Voice repeater slot
and Voice radio channel. Likewise, the ARS Status message from the subscriber radio and the ARS Acknowledgement
message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway use the same Voice repeater slot and Voice radio channel.

IP SITE CONNECT SYSTEM WITH DATA REVERT
For IP Site Connect systems with Data Revert slots, one TurboVUi IP Gateway can support one Voice Control
Station Radio as well as three additional Data Revert Radios. The TurboVUi IP Gateway must have software version
5.1.5 or later.
When Data Revert slots are used in a system, data messages from a TurboVUi IP Gateway are sent using a Voice
radio and Voice repeater slot. On the other hand, data messages from a subscriber radio are sent using a Data Revert
repeater slot and a Data radio.
Specifically, a GPS Request message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway is sent using a Voice radio and repeater slot.
The corresponding GPS Data status message from the subscriber radio is sent using a Data Revert repeater slot and
radio..
Likewise, an ARS Status message from a subscriber radio is sent using a Data Revert repeater slot and radio. The
corresponding ARS Acknowledge message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway is sent using a Voice radio and repeater
slot.
CPS Configuration
The “GPS Revert” parameter in CPS (Channels > ZoneName > ChannelName) must specify one of the listed Data
Revert “transmit digital channels”.
See CPS Configuration Tables on Page 25 for additional setup details for Control Station radios and Subscriber radios.

For Capacity Plus systems with Data Revert slots, one TurboVUi IP Gateway can support one Voice Control Station
Radio as well as three additional Data Revert Radios. The TurboVUi IP Gateway must have software version 5.1.5 or
later.
When Data Revert slots are used in a Capacity Plus system, data messages from a TurboVUi IP Gateway are sent
using a Voice radio and one of the trunked Voice repeater slots. On the other hand, data messages from a subscriber
radio are sent using a Data Revert repeater slot and a Data radio.
Specifically, a GPS Request message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway is sent using a Voice radio and one of the
trunked Voice repeater slots. The corresponding GPS Data status message from the subscriber radio is sent using a
Data Revert repeater slot and Data radio..
Likewise, an ARS Status message from a subscriber radio is sent using a Data Revert repeater slot and Data radio.
The corresponding ARS Acknowledge message from the TurboVUi IP Gateway is sent using a Voice radio and one of
the trunked Voice repeater slots.
CPS Configuration
The “Capacity Plus Data Channel List” in CPS (Capacity Plus > Data > ListName) must be completed to list all Data
Revert channels.

MOTOROLA ENHANCED GPS REPEATER OPTION
COMPARISON WITH STANDARD DATA REVERT
The “Enhanced GPS” repeater option available from Motorola is an inexpensive way to dramatically improve GPS data
throughput in a system with Data Revert repeater slots. The license for this option is purchasable from Motorola for
either new repeaters or an upgrade to existing repeaters. The following table compares two systems, each with a
requirement to update 225 radio subscribers once every minute. Each system has data revert slots for transferring the
GPS data from subscriber radios.

SYSTEM DESIGN RESOURCES
MOTOTRBO SYSTEM DESIGN TOOLS
Motorola has created a toolset to help in estimating system resources in the following areas:
•
Capacity Plus System Estimator
•
Connect Plus System Estimator (Note: TurboVUi will not function in Connect Plus systems until Motorola
releases Version 1.3 for the radios.)
•
Conventional Loading Calculator
•
Enhanced GPS Calculator
•
Connect Plus Site Link Bandwidth Calculator (Note: TurboVUi will not function in Connect Plus systems until
Motorola releases Version 1.3 for the radios.)
•
IP Site Connect Bandwidth Calculator
The above Tool Set is available on the MOL (Motorola On-Line) site using the following folder path in the Resource
Center tab:
Resource Center tab
> Software
> Two-Way
> MOTOTRBO
> Data Applications
> MOTOTRBO System Design Tools
Some System Design Tools use unrealistic parameter values in their calculation, especially for Motorola’s Enhanced
GPS option. For example, the Capacity Plus System Estimator uses a Window Size of 5, and GPS Update Allocation of
100%. Results obtained using these values yields a capacity of 128 GPS updates per minute per repeater slot, however
this is not a practical number.
A more realistic system would have a Window Size of 8, and GPS Update Allocation of 90%. Using these input
parameter values, the more practical capacity is 113 GPS updates per minute per repeater slot. This is still about six
times improvement over a system without the “Enhanced GPS” repeater option, so is much more efficient use of
repeater slots.

APPENDIX
APPENDIX - IP ADDRESSING
Normally, the factory default IP Address programmed into the XPR4550 Control Station radio should not be changed.
However, it must be on a different subnet than the TurboVUi IP Gateway that is connected to it via the Rear Accessory
Connector.
For example, if the network’s Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0, then at least one of the first three octets of the
MOTOTRBO Radio IP address must be different than the TurboVUi IP Gateway module IP address.
The following IS NOT a valid IP addressing scheme since both devices are on the SAME subnet:
XPR4550 Control Station
TurboVUi IP Gateway
IP Address:
192.168.12.2
192.168.12.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
255.255.255.0
The following IS a valid IP addressing scheme since the devices are on DIFFERENT subnets:
XPR4550 Control Station
TurboVUi IP Gateway
IP Address:
192.168.12.2
192.168.10.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
255.255.255.0
For additional information see Cisco’s IP Addressing and Subnetting for New Users, Document ID 13788, located at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk365/technologies_tech_note09186a00800a67f5.shtml
APPENDIX - CONFIGURING PORT FORWARDING ON ROUTERS
If TurboVUi clients (such as Solo, Dispatch, or Pocket) 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 TurboVUi IP Gateway
from other networks. This is also true when one or more of the clients listed above connects to a TurboVUi IP Gateway
from the Internet.
The IP port used by a TurboVUi IP Gateway is fixed at TCP Port 48222.
The default IP port used by TurboVUi clients is TCP Port 48222. However, any other port may be specified during the
login from any TurboVUi client by specifying this port number as in the following example:
100.100.100.33:7777
where:
100.100.100.33
7777
is the public (or external or wide-area) address of the firewall or router, and,
is the external port of that firewall that will be port-forwarded to the private (or internal or localarea) TCP Port 48222.
See www.portforwarding.com for detailed instructions for the specific router in use at your site.
