Motorola Products > Project P25 Terminals & Infrastructure > ASTRO 25® SmartX Site Converter


Capitalize on your existing investments and achieve Project 25 (P25) interoperability when you migrate your SmartZone™ system to ASTRO® 25 using the SmartX Site Converter.


To ease migration, SmartX preserves important SmartZone features such as; push-to-talk ID to dispatchers and radio users, and emergency call/alarm. Additionally, existing SmartZone equipment, including CENTRACOM™ Elite Dispatch Consoles and QUANTAR™ stations can continue to be used, giving you the flexibility to implement a phased plan as time, budget and training cycles allow.
