16 IP Link IP Analog traffic is streamed as PCM over RTP Digital traffic is streamed as P25 CAI (IMBE/DES) over RTP
17 ‘PC Console’ IP Analog and digital traffic is streamed as PCM over RTP
18 ‘FSIAP-25’ (Fixed Station Interface Access Point) Digital traffic is streamed as P25 CAI (IMBE/DES) over RTP and converted to analog baseband in the FSIAP-25IPDigital/Analog
