Mimer SoftRadio - IP Network based control of two-way radios
lets you remote control all your radios, phones and intercom from one or many PC
dispatchers. You can mix radio types and systems, you can mix local radios with
Internet connected radios, you can have one dispatcher or hundreds.
To control the radios functionality a
head is used that mimics the radios

integrate SoftRadio and make use of the functions within SoftRadio.
functions for PTT, audio connection etc are available via the API. Also more
advanced functions like GroupSend and CrossPatch are available.
One of the
fundamental functions in SoftRadio is the use of virtual control heads for
different radio types. This function is also usable through the API. For each
radio type a virtual control head can be brought forward and the radios
functions can be remote controlled just as if the dispatcher was sitting in
front of the radio.
A list of the radios that have
a Virtual Control Head in Mimer SoftRadio can be found here.

For the use
of developers we have a Windows DLL kit that will give you access to many of
the functions in Mimer SoftRadio.
in the system needs a Network Interface and the operator PC needs to run the
background software Mimer Connection Manager. This software handles the actual
connection to each interface at the radio or other device in the system.
In the package is also a system
example written in C# called Mimer SharpRadio to make it easier to get
The example helps the developer
to test all functions and shows, in a basic way, how to build a dispatcher with
all the functions. You can also borrow parts of the code for your own

can follow each step of the messages back and forth in the system.

Connection to a radio
is connected to an interface box called Network Interface. The box interfaces to
the radios audio path and to its PTT and when available to the radio's control
other side of the interface is a standard network port that can be connected to
a LAN, WAN or to the Internet.
There are also other types of
interfaces for connection to phones, intercoms, PA's etc.
