A Mimer SoftRadio dispatcher can also have the possibility to connect phones in parallel with the radios.

When one or more phones are connected in the system the layout of the device panel will be slightly changed from the standard radio layout.  Instead of pushing “send” you will click a handset symbol and doing so open a number pad, and with a second click a speed dial list pops up.

In this way an operator can access phone lines through the same PC, software and using the same headset that is used for radio calls.

Each operator can have his own phone line or share one or more lines with other operators. Calls can be made, received and put on hold for other operators to take over.


A list of last calls are available per operator.

With the option Mimer CrossPatch, phone calls and radio calls can be patched together by the operator.


Connection possibilities:

Analogue Phone
Connection of the actual phone line is made through a Network
Interface. It connects to a standard two wire, DTMF phone line (POTS).


Your SoftRadio software will handle incoming and outgoing calls just like any standard analogue phone.


Also Satellite phones with POTS connection can be used.


Cellular phone

A Network Interface is connected to a GSM/3G module with a standard SIM card.


Your SoftRadio software will handle incoming and outgoing calls just like it does for an analogue phone.


There is no SMS function available.

Digital Phone, SIP
Connection to IP-Phone switches with SIP-protocol are made through the LAN. No extra hardware is needed.


A software option is needed in the SoftRadio dispatcher software. This will act as a SIP client in the same manor as other software based phone clients, but also be integrated with the dispatcher so that the dispatcher can use the same headset for phone and radio and make cross patches between phone and radio.


A separate brochure is available on the download page.
