Previous SEL Number: 06CP-01-BASE

Description: Base radio system.

ImportantFeatures: Digital or analog capable.
Encryption capability.
Supports 12.5KHz channels (6.25KHz channels are becoming available).
Supports conventional or trunked systems.
Project 25 compatible (136-512, 800 MHz).
Project 25 required within 700MHz.
Multi-band, GPS/GLONASS, Bluetooth, Over The Air Reprogramming/rekeying (OTAR). TDMA Phase 2, FDMA Phase 1. Wifi (802.11 B/G/N)

Operating Considerations: Consider installation needs: grounding, location, lightning protection.
Consider power supply and antenna needs.
Consider FIPS compliance if planning to interface with Federal Government resources.
Check compatibility of encryption features - not all encryption schemes are compatible. Multiple options are available, including ADP, AES, DES, DES-XL, DES-OFB, DVPXL; WIFI security: WPA2 WPA WEP. However, less expensive approaches such as ADP will not meet Federal grant requirements for compliance with the P25/AES standard. Also, DES and its variants are now considered to be insecure for many applications. In recent years, DES has been superseded by the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and DES has been withdrawn as a standard by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (formerly the National Bureau of Standards). For encrypted interoperability, AES encryption is the only encryption that meets the P25 type 3 encryption standards for interoperability communications.
When implementing encryption, consider encryption key management, including encryption key generation, management, and rotation.
