Setting up the connection in the Scout console system includes setting up both the Kodiak driver and Avtec's Trunking Gateway. The Kodiak driver, which is located in VPGate, Scout's audio gateway, connects to Scout's Trunking Gateway (the Console RFSS).

The Kodiak driver and the Trunking Gateway together with Kodiak's Broadband PTT gateway provide a VoIP connection between the Scout console and the Broadband PTT network. The VPGate Kodiak driver conveys voice using G.711 encoded packets between the subscriber unit and the console subsystem.

The diagram above illustrates a basic setup between a Broadband PTT network and the Scout console system. Scout's VPGate software and its Trunking Gateway software run with redundancy to ensure connectivity to the Broadband PTT network through the Kodiak gateway.
