NXDN™ Forum Moving Towards Interoperability Testing
Suwanee, GA – February 12, 2010 - The NXDN™ Forum announced today that during their last meeting that the Forum was well on the way to implementing Interoperability and Conformance testing procedures for NXDN™ products.
These procedures are similar in nature to the recently completed APCO Project 25 CAP testing program. That is to ensure that products from multiple manufacturers based on the NXDN™ air interface protocol will interoperate with each other. A product that successfully passes the testing process will then be considered compliant with the Interoperability and Conformance requirements, allowing that product to display the NXDN™ logo indicating this compliance.
With the implementation of these testing procedures, the NXDN™ Forum is aiming to create an environment to assure current and future end users of NXDN™ technology that they can expect products they purchase from any NXDN™ manufacturer will interoperate with each other.
The NXDN™ Forum was established in July, 2008, and currently has a membership of 13 companies from the Land Mobile Radio industry. These members include Kenwood Corporation, Icom Incorporated, Kenwood USA Corporation, Icom America Incorporated, Aeroflex Wichita Inc., Daniels Electronics Ltd., Ritron Inc., Trident Datacom Technologies, Inc. d/b/a Trident Micro Systems, Anritsu Company, CML Microsystems Plc, Etherstack Ltd., General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies and Meteor Communications Corporation, Inc.
The Forum was established for the promotion of the NXDN™ digital air protocol for use with 6.25 kHz and 12.5 kHz narrowband technology.
