WAVE on Radio

WAVE enables scalable, enterprise-grade push-to-talk on broadband networks and devices so that critical, time-sensitive information flows quickly and securely between team members. It provides a communications interoperability platform between smartphones, radios (any type), computers, telephones or any other communications device.

Two options are available: WAVE 5000 (Enterprise) and WAVE OnCloud.
WAVE 5000 is suitable for customers who want to own the entire communications network. In this case, a WAVE 5000 server would be collocated with the radio infrastructure and would act as a gateway into the computer and smartphone network.
WAVE OnCloud is best suited for customers who don't want the hassle of maintaining IT infrastructure (these customers will typically also be using cloud based application like Salesforce and Office 365). Here the WAVE service resides in the cloud.

Traditionally, the WAVE client would be installed on an Android or iOS (Apple) phone or tablet. However, as of R2.8.0, WiFi enabled MOTOTRBO radios are now also able to operate as WAVE Clients on a WAVE 5000 or WAVE OnCloud service.

The radio would be provisioned with one or more WAVE Personalities via Radio Management. The radio would connect to the WAVE server via WiFi. In areas where LMR coverage is possible, the radio user can switch to a normal RF channel and talk to WAVE  and other radio users via the DMR channel.

When operating on the WAVE server/service and GPS is enabled, the radio will send its location to any WAVE cleints that support location tracking (e.g. Desktop Communicator; Mobile Client)
