The all-new RIC-Mz is a better, faster, and more secure improvement on the classic RIC-M product. The RIC-Mz is a converter that allows conventional Motorola ASTRO(TM) base stations and related equipment to be interconnected using IP. This product was designed for use by State, Local, and Federal first responders, public safety, and law enforcement users of radio systems. Developed by Christine Wireless under license from DHS/S&T.
New features of the RIC-Mz include TLS 1.2 key exchange encryption and advanced security features. The RIC-Mz is designed to the DHS 4300 policy standards for the protection of sensitive information.
