10 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Overview The MOTOTRBO radio supports the following Bluetooth device connection types:Headset Profile (HSP)Serial Port Profile (SPP) DataPersonal Area Network (PAN) DataRemote PTTThese connections can be used for communication with:Motorola Bluetooth headset with remote PTTMotorola Bluetooth PTT Only Device (POD)Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Bluetooth headsetCOTS Data Peripheral such as a Bluetooth barcode scannerPC ComputerInstructor Notes:Refer to Section 2- System Feature Overview of the MOTOTRBO System Planner.
11 MOTOTRBO 2.X Pairing with display radios: Bluetooth® - Pairing a Device with Display RadiosPairing with display radios:Place your headset in pairing or discover mode.Bluetooth menu > Find DevicesAfter the radio detects a Bluetooth device, the user can initiate a connection request for the selected Bluetooth device.If pin authentication is preprogrammed, the user will be prompted to enter the pin code via the keypad to establish a connection.The radio display and tone indicators alert the user upon establishing a connection.If successful, the display shows “<Device> Connected.” A positive tone sounds and a Bluetooth Connected icon appears on the status bar.If unsuccessful, the display shows “Connecting Failed”. A negative tone sounds.Instructor Notes:If pin authentication is required to pair a device with a display radio, the user will be prompted to enter the pin code via the keypad to establish the connection.Refer to the CPS module 5 on how to program the fields.
12 MOTOTRBO 2.X Pairing with non-display radios: Bluetooth® - Pairing a Device with Non-Display RadiosPairing with non-display radios:Place your headset in pairing or discover mode.Press the preprogrammed Bluetooth button on the radio to connect to the Bluetooth device.If pin authentication is required for pairing, pin codes should be programmed via CPS.The radio LED and tone indicators alert the user upon establishing a connection.If successful, the LED blinks yellow. A positive tone sounds.If unsuccessful, a negative tone sounds.Instructor Notes:For non-display radios, the pin authentication codes should be preprogrammed via CPS.Refer to the CPS module 5 on how to program the fields.
13 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Pairing and Connection Bluetooth operates within a range of 10 meters line-of-sight. This is an unobstructed path between the radio and the Bluetooth device.Should the voice or tone quality start to sound “broken”, simply position the radio and the headset closer to each other to re-establish a clearer audio reception.The radio can connect to a Bluetooth headset, a Bluetooth scanner and a Motorola Bluetooth POD simultaneously.However, it is recommended to pair with data devices such as the scanner and/or Motorola POD prior to the headset.This pairing procedure provides a better pairing experience in comparison to pairing with the headset prior to data devices first.
14 MOTOTRBO 2.X Motorola Bluetooth Headset with remote PTT Bluetooth® - Radio Operation with Motorola Headset and PODMotorola Bluetooth Headset with remote PTTFor Motorola Bluetooth headsets equipped with a remote PTT, the remote PTT can be used to initiate outgoing voice transmissions.The headset’s audio path is used after a connection to the headset/PTT is established.Motorola PTT Only Device (POD)The POD can be connected and used as a remote PTT, with or without headset, for radio PTT initiation.The POD is used to initiate outgoing voice transmissions and is not equipped with a local mic/speaker.Upon pressing remote PTT, the currently selected active audio path is use for radio audio communication.
15 MOTOTRBO 2.XBluetooth® - Radio Operation with Bluetooth Headset HK200After the radio and headset are successfully paired, the radio sends ringing indications to the headset when there is an incoming call. Ringtones will be heard on the headset speaker.The incoming call can be accepted by pressing the multi-function button on the headset.This establishes a link with the headset and allows the headset speaker/mic to be used as the active audio path for communications.Upon disconnect of the Bluetooth headset, the radio reverts back to its prior audio routing.If the headset is subsequently paired with the radio again, the headset accepts the call automatically without requiring the user to press the multi-function button. In this scenario, the ringtone may not be heard by the user.
16 MOTOTRBO 2.XBluetooth® - Radio Operation with Bluetooth Headset HK200 (cont.)When the headset is connected, the user can manually press the multi-function button on the headset to disconnect from the radio.The audio path can be switched on/off via the radio’s interface even when the headset speaker/mic are connected to the radio and configured as the selected active audio path.Portables: Supports active audio path switching from the radio’s interface via menu or a programmable button.Mobiles: Supports active audio path switching via programmable on/off hook.The radio’s audio path is used for voice communication in the following scenarios:When the Bluetooth audio path is switched offWhen the radio PTT button is pressedA separate Bluetooth Mic Gain is CPS programmable for both analog and digital operation. This field is used for fine tuning the volume level for outgoing voice communication.
17 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data What is a BT Data Service?Includes any BT Data communicated over the radio RF interface that enables third-party IP or Option Board based data applications.There are two main BT data profiles:Serial Port Profile (SPP) Data: Provides a pass-through serial data transport for the connected BT devices (e.g. Barcode, RFID) to remote IP destination or locally connected Radio peripherals (e.g. Option Board).Personal Area Network (PAN) Data: Supports a PAN access point and provides IPv4-based networking capabilities for the connected BT device (e.g. PC).
18 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data SPP DataThe radio can connect wirelessly to a Commercial Off-the-Shelf Data Peripheral such as a Bluetooth barcode scanner.A non-display radio can support the management of Bluetooth data and audio in the same way a display radio.Paring to a Bluetooth Data peripheral device (such as a barcode scanner) does not automatically provide additional value unless used in conjunction with an application.The application is needed to manage the data from the barcode scanner data and put it in a readable / customizable format.
19 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data SPP DataAfter a barcode scanner has been paired to the radio, the data sent from the barcode scanner to the radio can be routed to 3 possible locations:Radio option boardSupported for both analog and digital mode.Remote radio via Over-the-Air (OTA) interfaceSupported only for digital mode.Security for OTA interface transmissions can be provided by the radio’s Enhanced Privacy feature.Requires destination UDP port and IP address configuration via CPS.Data accessoryA non-PC XCMP peripheral that runs on a Serial Port Profile.
20 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data PAN Data - OperationRadio supports BT-PAN as an access pointRemote BT-PAN device (e.g. PC) should be connected to the radio as a PAN clientUpon pairing, an IP network connection is established for data communicationAll data communication should be addressable with an IP address and application port number over the BT-PAN connection
21 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data PAN Data – Pairing a Device User enables the BT-PAN profileVia a “Bluetooth Discoverable On/Off” programmable button for Non Display modelsVia menu for Display models (Main Menu > Bluetooth > My Status)
22 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data PAN Data - Pairing a Device 2. User requests to “find” the device (Main Menu > Bluetooth > Find Me)
23 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data PAN Data - Pairing a Device 3. User enters secure PINPIN entered via the keypad for Display models4. Radio “pairs” to chosen deviceA tone will sound and the LED will blink yellow on a Non-Display modelFor display models, a tone will sound and the display will indicate a devicehas been “paired”
24 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data PAN Data - Pairing a Device 5. To disconnect a device, the user would disable the BT-PAN profileVia a programmable button for Non Display models; a tone will be heardVia menu for Display models (Main Menu > Bluetooth > Devices > Disconnect)6. User disables the PAN profileVia a programmable button for Non Display modelsVia menu for Display models (Main Menu > Bluetooth > My Status)
25 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Data Sample Use case Asset tracking Field maintenance technician sends asset barcode/RFID over radio’s Bluetooth interface to determine if/when a critical replacement part is available to schedule next repair visit.Back-end server/database relays part info as a text message back to technician’s radio.Asset Info (TMS)

28 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Adjusting Microphone Gain Settings This option enables the user to adjust the volume level for all outgoing voice communication from a Bluetooth wireless device.The Bluetooth mic gain settings can be adjusted for both digital and analog operation.Adjust the Bluetooth mic gain settings in the accessory configuration section via CPS.Audio quality is not impacted by adjusting the Bluetooth mic gain settings.
29 MOTOTRBO 2.X Bluetooth® - Avoiding Accidental Connection Once a Bluetooth headset has been paired with a radio, re-pairing is not required in subsequent usages.Because each radio could be assigned to different people, this can cause the headset to accidentally reconnect to the wrong radio belonging to a different user.Therefore, it is recommended to erase all information after each pairing.HK200 – Erase all pairing information by pressing and holding the volume button and call button together, followed by turning on the headset.Motorola Headset/PTT and POD – Erase all pairing information by pressing and holding the PTT button, followed by turning on the headset.
30 MOTOTRBO 2.X Audio and Display - Intelligent Audio Intelligent audio adjusts the volume in response to stationary and non-stationary noise sources.The radio samples and measures the surrounding noise and automatically adjusts the volume level for voice transmissions to be heard above the surrounding noise.Users do not need to continually adjust the radio volume based on the environment they are in.In extreme cases, the radio volume may be adjusted to the maximum. The volume returns to normal when the radio leaves the noisy environment.This feature includes:Automatic Volume ControlAdaptive Noise MaskingAudio ShapingInstructor Notes:Refer to the CPS module 5 for enabling/disabling Intelligent Audio.

33 MOTOTRBO 2.X Audio and Display - Voice Announcement Voice announcement enables the user to know which zone, channel, and programmable buttons are selected on the radio without having to view the home screen nor use the channel selector switch.Announces a channel and zone when navigating the radioAnnounces a programmable button when short pressed or long pressedAnnouncing Zone and Channel when feature is enabled:When the user scrolls or navigates to a new channel in one zone, the radio announces the latest channel with “Channel X”.When there is a zone change, the radio announces the latest selected zone and channel with “Zone X Channel Y”.This feature is supported on analog and digital channels for MOTOTRBO Professional Portable, Mobile and MOTOTRBO Commercial/Mid-Tier Portable.
34 MOTOTRBO 2.X Integrated 5 Tone – A Brief History Select 5 (also known as 5 Tone) is a tone signaling protocol which utilizes a brief burst of sequential audible tones.Subscribers configured to respond to the transmitted tone sequences will un-mute, while others will remain muted. Select 5 tones are encoded via telegrams.A Select 5 telegram is composed of 1 to 3 Select 5 sequences, and each sequence is composed of 1 to 12 Select 5 tones.A Select 5 tone is a single frequency audible ( Hz) toneThe tones frequency and duration are specified by the sequences’ associated signaling standard. A Select 5 signaling standard defines 16 tones (0-9 and A-F), as well as 2 single tones (T1 and T2). The frequency and duration of the single tones are specified in the CPS.The CPS allows one to specify variable digits within tone sequence definition and these digits will be replaced with 0-9, A-F before use. The supported digits are:A1-A8, replaced with the target subscriber’s addressU1-U8, replaced with the initiating subscriber’s addressS1-S3, replaced with the initiating subscriber’s status
35 MOTOTRBO 2.X Integrated 5 Tone - Differences There are some minor differences between the 5 Tone implementation for the new MOTOTRBO 2.X platform and the legacy Motorola analogue radio platforms.These differences (which are described in this section) fall into the following categories:ButtonsAlertsListsEmergencyRadio stun

45 MOTOTRBO 2.X AntennasThere are new antennas for the MOTOTRBO 2.X professional portable subscribers.MOTOTRBO 1.X and MOTOTRBO 2.X antennas are NOT interchangeable.MOTOTRBO 1.X antennas will fit on MOTOTRBO 2.X radios, but the radio will NOT work properly.MOTOTRBO 2.X antennas will fit on MOTOTRBO 1.X radios, but again the radio will NOT work properly.The distinguishing differences between the 2 families of portable antennas are as follows:The MOTOTRBO 1.X antennas are thinner at the top and have a round end.The MOTOTRBO 2.X antennas contain groves/markings near the base where colored antenna bands can be fitted.The MOTOTRBO 2.X antennas contain a colored o-ring at the base stating “Made in Malaysia” and the frequency band.
46 MOTOTRBO 1.X / 2.XThe following slides are not R2.X specific, however they contain additional clarity regarding VOX / Channel Scan operation.Instructor Notes:Topic Six – Bluetooth Support
47 MOTOTRBO Digital Features VOX Voice Operated Transmission (VOX) provides hands-free radio transmissions with the use of selected radio accessoriesThe radio is keyed-up when VOX detects voice on the accessory microphoneAssuming the configured channel Admit Criteria are metAmong the usage considerations are:User proximity to other audio sourcesPosition of the VOX accessoryUse of a trigger word when the Talk Permit Tone is enabledInstructor Notes:Refer to Section 2.9 of the MOTOTRBO System Planner.This feature is also available in Analogue mode.
48 MOTOTRBO Digital Features VOX (cont.) VOX is suspended if the radio has any Transmit Interrupt feature enabledVOX is temporarily suspended when:The speaker un-mutes to incoming audioVOX resumes automatically when the speaker mutesThe PTT button is pressedVOX resumes following a channel change, power cycle, or VOX re-activation (via menu or programmable button)The Emergency Alarm button is pressedVOX resumes automatically after the emergency is clearedInstructor Notes:Refer to Section 2.9 of the MOTOTRBO System Planner.
49 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Multiple Groups and Channel Scan MOTOTRBO supports:Multiple Groups (i.e. monitoring a list of different groups on a given channel / slot)Channel Scan (i.e. monitoring a list of different channels within a system)Multiple Groups and Channel Scan both compatible with:Repeater channelsDirect radio channelsMultiple Groups compatible with:Conventional digital channelsCapacity Plus personalities.Channel Scan compatible with:Analog voiceDigital voiceDigital signalingConventional channelsChannel Scan incompatible with:Capacity Plus personalitiesEmergencyDataRoaming (i.e. radio can not roam to site and then scan channels at that site)Instructor Notes:This slide introduces Scan concepts.Tip: Explain and differentiate Multiple Groups and Channel Scan.
50 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Multiple Groups The radio unmutes only when a relevant group is transmitting on the channel.The relevant groups for a given channel (group members) are defined by the Receive (Rx) Group List associated with that channel.One Receive (Rx) Group List can contain a maximum of 16 group members and a maximum of 50 Receive (Rx) Group Lists can be defined.For repeater channels, the group call hangtime is defined by a repeater timer and for direct radio channels, the (talkaround) group call hangtime is defined by a radio timer.The radio is allowed to talkback to the group for the duration specified by the group call hangtime.Instructor Notes:Progressing from the previous slide, this slide lists Multiple Group features.Tip: Demonstrate Multiple Groups using MOTOTRBO Radios.
51 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan If Auto Scan is enabled for a channel, a radio starts scanning as soon as that channel is selected by the user, otherwise if Auto Scan is disabled, scan can be started / stopped via a programmable button.While scanning, a radio is looking for “Activity of Interest” by continually sampling the Scan Members (channels) contained in the Scan List associated with the selected channel.One Scan List can contain a maximum of 16 “Scan Members” and a maximum of 250 Scan Lists can be defined.While sampling a given channel, “Activity of Interest” consists of incoming (voice or signaling) transmissions addressed to the radio using:The radio’s individual address, orOne of the group address contained in the Rx Group List associated with the channel being sampled, orThe “All Call” addressA mixture of digital and analogue conventional channels may be included in a Scan List.Instructor Notes:Progressing from the previous slide, this slide lists Channel Scan features.Tip: Demonstrate Channel Scan using MOTOTRBO Radios.The set of channels to be scanned (or scan members) are determined by a configured Scan List. A radio can have multiple Scan Lists, and each channel in a radio can be associated with a different Scan List. Scan Lists can contain all analog channels, all digital channels, or a mixture of both analog and digital channels. Once scan is started, the radio scans through each scan member of the associated Scan List for the selected channel.
52 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan (Cont.) While sampling a given channel, if “Activity of Interest” is found the radio stops scanning and switches to that channel. The radio then remains on the channel until all “Activity of Interest” has ceased for a period of time defined by the “Call Hang Timer” (if applicable) plus the radio “Scan Hang Timer”. The operation of the “Call Hang Timer” and “Scan Hang Timer” (for Releases 1.7 onwards) is summarised below.For digital and analogue repeater channels:On termination of a radio transmission, the repeater starts its Call Hang Timer running.On expiry of the Repeater Call Hang Timer, receiving radios start their Scan Hang Timers running.For digital direct radio channels:On termination of a radio transmission, receiving radios start their (Talkaround) Call Hang Timers running.On expiry of a (Talkaround) Call Hang Timer, a receiving radio starts its Scan Hang Timer running.For analogue direct radio channels:Call Hang Timers generally do not apply here, so on termination of a radio transmission, receiving radios start their Scan Hang Timers running immediately.For certain 5-Tone and MDC calls there is an Auto Rest Timer which acts like a (Talkaround) Call Hang Timer. For such calls, a receiving radio starts its Auto Reset Timer running on termination of a radio transmission, then starts its Scan Hang Timer running on expiry of its Auto Rest Timer.Once the “Scan Hang Timer” expires then the radio resumes scanning again.Instructor Notes:Progressing from the previous slide, this slide continues to list Channel Scan features.Tip: Demonstrate Channel Scan using MOTOTRBO Radios.
53 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan (Cont.) Channel Scan limitationsSince Channel Scan requires the radio to switch between channels, there is a possibility that the radio will miss a transmission.The larger the Channel Scan list, the greater the possibility that a transmission will be missed.The Channel Scan list should be configured to be as short as possible.A scanning radio will eventually detect group and “All Call” transmissions via “late entry”, however most individually addressed transmissions (e.g. Private Call) will need to be prefixed with “Transmit (Tx) Preamble” if they are to be detected by a scanning radio.Channel Scan (even with preamble) will NOT work for emergency calls or data. Both these types of call can only be received on the selected channel irrespective of whether Channel Scan is enabled or disabled.Instructor Notes:Progressing from the previous slide, this slide continues to list Channel Scan features.Tip: Demonstrate Channel Scan using MOTOTRBO Radios.
54 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan – Tx Designated Channel and Talkback If the user presses the PTT while the radio is scanning, the radio will (depending on its configuration) transmit on one of the following channels:The Selected channel - this is the typical configuration.A specified conventional channel.The Last Active channel* (i.e. the most recent channel on which the radio stopped scanning as a result of finding “Activity of Interest”).If the user presses the PTT after the radio has stopped scanning as a result of finding “Activity of Interest”, the radio will (depending on its configuration) transmit on one of the following channels:The Active Channel (i.e. the current channel on which the radio stopped scanning as a result of finding “Activity of Interest”) – this is the typical configuration.The selected channel.* The radio only remembers the Last Active channel and NOT the Last Active group, therefore this configuration results in a transmission to the TX Contact Name associated with the Last Active channel (which is not necessarily the Last Active group). To avoid confusion, it is recommended that this configuration is only used if there is a single group in the RX Group List for each channel and this single group corresponds to the channel’s TX Contact Name.Instructor Notes:
55 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan – Priority Levels Priority levels can be configured for members of a Scan List. Three levels of priority are:Priority-1Priority-2Non-PriorityPriority levels are configurable via CPS.Priority levels affect the order of scanning. The radio may re-order Non-Priority scan members in order to optimize the scan efficiency.Instructor Notes:Progressing from the previous slide, this slide continues to list Channel Scan features.Tip: Demonstrate Channel Scan using MOTOTRBO Radios.

If the following type of “Activity of Interest” is found while the radio is scanning:Data addressed to the scanning radio (note: data can only be received on the selected channel)An individual call (Private Call)Priority-1 scan memberthen the radio stops scanning and switches to that channel for the duration of the call.If however the “Activity of Interest” is a voice group call on a Priority-2 or a Non-Priority scan member, the radio continues to periodically scan any higher priority scan members defined.If “Activity of Interest” is subsequently detected on a higher priority channel, then the radio switches to the higher priority channel immediately without waiting for the current call to end.Instructor Notes:This slide introduces Priority Levels concepts.Tip: Demonstrate Priority Levels using MOTOTRBO Radios.For example, if the radio is receiving voice on a Non-Priority scan member, then the Priority-1 and Priority-2 scan members are scanned periodically. In this case, the order of scan will be: Priority-1, Priority-2, Priority-1, Priority-2, etc. If the radio is receiving voice on a Priority-2 scan member, then only the Priority-1 scan member is scanned periodically. If a transmission of interest is found on the higher priority member, the radio switches to that member to monitor the transmission. If it is not of interest, it returns to the previously monitored member. Priority Sampling does not occur when transmitting.Because the radio is currently receiving voice, leaving the current scan member to scan a higher priority member will cause the radio to temporarily leave the current transmission. This causes an audio hole in received audio that is being played through the radio’s speaker. Thus, the intervals the radio samples the higher priority members, essentially, becomes the audio holes that are introduced into the currently monitored voice. This interval is CPS configurable via the “Priority Sample Time” interval parameter.
57 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan – Channel Marking Although relatively short, its does take time to determine if activity is of interest on a higher priority scan member. During this time, there is an audio hole on the current scan member.Channel marking offers a way to mitigate the duration of the audio hole.The radio assumes that if the activity on the higher priority scan member has already been identified as not of interest, then there is no need to fully review it at every scan interval.For a partial review the radio only verifies that the activity on the higher priority scan member is of the same type as the activity which was previously identified as not of interest, If this is the case then the radio assumes the current activity on the higher priority scan member is the same activity which was previously identified as not of interest. By verifying just the type of activity, the radio is able to get back to the current call much faster. This assumption is made for a pre-determined number of times, after which the activity on the higher priority scan member is fully reviewed again.The feature greatly increases audio quality while a radio is in priority sampling mode.Instructor Notes:This slide introduces Channel Marking concepts.Tip: Demonstrate Channel Marking using MOTOTRBO Radios.The radio only needs to identify the type of transmission taking place, which is beneficial as identifying a transmission type takes much less time than fully identifying if a transmission is not of interest. This assumption is made for a pre-determined number of times, after which, the scan member is fully reviewed again. This method changes the experienced audio holes from long audio holes every priority scan interval to one long audio hole followed by numerous short audio holes, and then another long audio hole, and so on.
58 MOTOTRBO Digital Features Channel Scan – Scan members with similar receive parameters A scan list with members that share the same receive parameters but different transmit parameters may result in misdirected reply transmissions.When scanning, a radio only qualifies the receive parameters before landing on a particular channel.Let’s review the following example to better understand the scenario:A scan list has two scan members: Channel 1 (Rx: F1, Tx: F2) and Channel 2 (Rx: F1, Tx: F3), where, both channels are Analog CSQ.A scanning radio will qualify the receive parameters and land on either channel making an assumption about the transmit parameters.If the radio makes an incorrect assumption about the transmit parameters, then this will result in misdirected transmissions.Instructor Notes:
