News Release

Updates from Icom’s P25 Engineering Team

     

KIRKLAND, Wash. (December 2020) – In September, Icom released the v3.9 firmware for the F7010 Series, and its release has brought forth enormous advancements for our Phase 1 and Phase 2 trunking support. The v3.9 firmware contains numerous feature enhancements and bug fixes that affect both conventional and trunking customers. We strongly recommend staying up-to-date with the latest versions of firmware as they release. With that in mind, while the v3.9 firmware release was a milestone, it was not without some room for additional improvements.

We are happy to announce the v3.93 interim firmware release. This release improves the performance of the F7010 Series and brings new feature enhancements such as PC commands, ATAK support for conventional operation, and a detailed unit information menu. This menu provides onscreen details such as the assigned radio ID, assigned IP address, and OTAR registration status.

We are also excited to announce the official approval and certification status of the F7010 Series on the following P25 trunking systems:

    Michigan MPSCS, 700/800 MHz Motorola Phase 1 system

  • F7040S/T and F7540 models
    Minimum Requirements: ISL-P25TR Phase 1 license and v3.93 firmware or later
    Missouri MOSWIN, VHF & 700/800 MHz Hybrid Motorola Phase 1 system
  • F7010S/T, F7040S/T, and F7510 models only
    Minimum Requirements: ISL-P25TR Phase 1 license and v3.93 firmware or later
    Cochise County, Arizona (SEACOM), 700/800 MHz Motorola Phase 2 system
  • F7040S/T and F7540 models
    Minimum Requirements: ISL-P25TR Phase 1 and ISL-P25P2 Phase 2 licenses and v3.93 firmware or later

Achieving these certifications clears the path for additional successes as we move into a new year. With that, we’re also making enhancements to the Icom America P25 website, where we will be publishing Approved / Certified P25 Trunking Systems information, with model details and minimal requirements for each system. Please be sure to visit the Icom's P25 website for the latest updates, information, and statuses.

As we embark on a new year in just a few short weeks, we look forward to a bright future in 2021 and working together with our partners, dealers, and customers.

From the P25 Engineering Team and all of us at Icom – Happy Holidays!
