Licensing

The direct IP interface between the Scout VoIP console subsystem and the Broadband PTT network is controlled by software licensing. Review the following information to learn more about the type and quantity of licenses required for an interface to a Broadband PTT network.

Avtec requires both a base VPGate license and a Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) supplemental subscription license to interface with a Kodiak Broadband PTT system. The following table lists the VPGate endpoint license options and the maximum number of endpoints allowed.

  • Base VPGate License — The base VPGate license size represents the maximum number of endpoints that can be active at any one time on a single VPGate. The base license is available in several sizes: 24, 40, 80, or 160 endpoints. To use more endpoints, you need additional VPGate licenses.
