Proven, world-class ITU-R accepted technology

Kenwood’s ITU-R accepted and award winning NXDN™ Common Air Interface (CAI) NEXEDGE® digital two-way radio system has been proven to deliver innovative and flexible mission and business critical digital conventional and trunked radio solutions to meet the most stringent demands of today’s radio system environment and provide users with a multitude of advanced voice and data features.

NEXEDGE® Generation 2

With NEXEDGE® Generation 2 (Gen2), the capabilities a NEXEDGE® system offers in terms of scalability, flexibility and performance is further enhanced including the capability to link 1,000+ sites or 24 networks.

 

Key features:

Digital Wide Area Network – IP based trunked radio network for mission & business critical Voice & Data Communications

NEXEDGE® has offered digital trunked radio solutions to meet the diverse requirements of a wide range of enterprise and mission-critical users

Capability to link 1,000+ sites or 24 networks

Linux server-based system architecture that offers a level of reliability that allows you to expand your setup and control capabilities

Extended Radio Coverage – the low BER of NXDN improves reception in fringe areas, thereby effectively increasing range by as much as 20% over FM analog, resulting in a 50% increase in coverage area for digital 6.25 kHz

NEXEDGE® Gen2 Applications

NexeDrive® NXDN task manager is a multi-platform application that communicates with the NEXEDGE® radio network. This application is responsible for receiving and sending data to/from NEXEDGE® radio network and storing data to the databases. This task manager is a mediator between the NexeDrive database and the digital radio network infrastructure. Read more >

NexeDroid® mobile solution is an Android application designed for squads, teams, crews or other forces to facilitate the execution of tasks. With the help of a tablet or a smart phone, forces receive information about the events and communicates with the control center over statuses. This solution is also integrated with a third-party navigation module that automatically generates routes to the event location according to the GPS coordinates set by the dispatcher. Android devices are connected to NEXEDGE radio station via Bluetooth wireless interface and has access to GSM / 3G / 4G networks. The main data transfer is executed via NEXEDGE® radio network, while mobile networks (GSM / 3G / 4G) are used as a back-up connection. NexeDroid application is a mediator between the end user and the NexeDrive database, that uses RadioNET digital radio network and the Bluetooth radio station.

NodeEye application provides a visual overview of base stations, showing alarm, statuses and levels of each of the power elements. Within NodeEye controllers, events are distributed through the IP network to indicate system power status. NodeEye receives these events and visualizes them real time to the application. NodeEye uses intuitive Graphical User Interface techniques to provide a clear graphical view of the power system. The application comes with a map-based top level view and a hierarchical display of system power components details.

NexeTalk®, a Radio Dispatch application is a state-of-the-art Dispatch & Tracking software solution for Kenwood NEXEDGE® digital radio systems. As a fully IP-based application, it does not require any additional hardware, such as control stations. The built-in AMBE+2™ vocoder provides high voice quality and eliminates the requirement to fit external USB decoders and other hardware. Read more >

 

The remarkable Multi-Protocol NEXEDGE® NX-5000 and NX-3000 Series

Designed specifically for mission critical users, the NX-5000 Series hand portable walkie-talkies and mobiles offer users the ability to communicate in analogue, NXDN, DMR and P25 formats providing unsurpassed interoperability when it matters most alongside a host of user safety features. An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s NXDN (FDMA), DMR 2 & DMR 3, P25 Phase 2 (TDMA) or FM Analogue – and transmits in the same mode received.

ONE-RADIO, MULTI-PROTOCOL SUPPORT FM analogue, P25, NXDN (NEXEDGE), DMR 2 & DMR 3

BLUETOOTH – WIRELESS VOICE & DATA Wireless connection to Tablets or Smartphones

GPS – TO TRANSMIT YOUR POSITION User safety & security– Emergency button, Lone Worker, Man-Down

BETTER COVERAGE 10-20% better radio coverage in NXDN mode

PUBLIC SAFETY FUNCTIONALITY Sensors for User safety, Encryption, Active Noise Cancelling, Full-Color 1.74 inch transflective display

TOUGH & ROBUST MIL-STD C/D/E/F/G, IP68 (portables) & IP54 (mobiles)

 

The NX-3000 Series takes many of the advanced features and capabilities of the mission critical NX-5000 Series to business and commercial users in a cost-effective, multi-protocol radio in either DMR plus FM Analogue or NEXEDGE NXDN plus FM Analogue configurations; which makes the NX-3000 Series an ideal solution for those migrating from analogue to digital as users can switch to and from DMR 2/DMR 3 + FM Analogue or NXDN (FDMA) + FM Analogue operation at any time as their needs evolve or change over time.

ONE-RADIO, MULTI-PROTOCOL SUPPORT FM analogue, NXDN (NEXEDGE), DMR 2 & DMR 3

BLUETOOTH – WIRELESS VOICE & DATA Wireless connection to Tablets or Smartphones

GPS – TO TRANSMIT YOUR POSITION User safety & security– Emergency button, Lone Worker, Man-Down
