RIOS delivers unsurpassed interface flexibility for radio connection. Featuring high-quality, 26-pin RIOS interface connectors, RIOS is capable of delivering the highest degree of electrical signaling between the radio and the RIOS gateway.
The result? Unmatched signaling capability and control combined with crystal clear audio. The image to the right displays the back plane interface of the RIOS TAC2 featuring SyTech RIOS 26-pin connectors.

Phyiscal Ports: Unlimited Radio, Telephone* and PTT Interface
A device physically connected to the RIOS I/O chassis is represented by a RIOS Physical Port connection within the RIOS GUI. RIOS Physical Ports include devices such as radios, telephone and PTT satellite radio handsets. RIOS Physical Ports are displayed in the top row of the RIOS Graphical User Interface and can be loaded based on interface profile.
The RIOS Ai-16 Gateway features sixteen (16) physical ports while the RIOS TAC2 features eight (8) physical ports and the RIOS SRX allows the system designer to choose the number of physical ports for their I/O chassis.
Loading a Physical Port Profile
With RIOS, physical ports are interchangeable via software-defined port profiles. This means that a physical port can change from one type of port configuration to another. For example, a port configured as a Nextel iDEN handset can quickly be configured to operate as a Motorola XTL O5 mobile radio. The graphic below illustrates this example. In this case, port 16, currently configured as a Nextel handset, is being swapped for a radio chosen from with the RIOS CommDB Library.
If your device does not appear in the CommDB listing, using the GenericRadio Profile will provide for standard receive and transmit capability.
For customers who purchased RIOS RCU Remote Radio Control, loading the device profile and connecting the device with the corresponding RIOS RCU Cablel alloww the operator to control the radio on screen just as if you were standing in front of the radio.
