The Cisco® IP Interoperability and Collaboration System (IPICS) provides a systems approach to communications interoperability, operations, and emergency management that delivers the right information to the right person in the right format at the right time. With the newest release of IPICS, the Inter Subsystem Interface (ISSI) gateway provides the capability to have a standardized network interface to a P25 radio system.
Because many P25 customers use multivendor solutions to save costs while streamlining operations, vendors must be able to meet P25 specifications. Cisco provides IPICS P25 planning and testing support to help vendors take full advantage of these new IPICS capabilities and ensure that their other integrated systems are compliant with P25 standards. The service complements partner services by providing Cisco IPICS subject matter experts to assure ISSI requirements are captured and tested.
Cisco will facilitate a working session to validate the ISSI gateway requirements in context of the overall IPICS solution design, and will then determine how to integrate and test to the P25 ISSI standard. A specific ISSI gateway integration test plan will be generated to meet the IPICS P25 requirements and objectives. Cisco will work with appropriate customer and partner staff to review the test plan and interpret the test results.
• IPICS design and requirements review
• P25 requirements review to validate ISSI gateway requirements
• Discovery session identifying technical integration and network readiness requirements
• Development of a customer-specific ISSI gateway integration test plan
• Knowledge transfer sessions covering the ISSI gateway integration test plan, test results, and recommendations based on those results
