As wireless communication becomes more prevalent so does the need to connect Land Mobile Radio (LMR) systems with commercial cellular LTE networks. Interconnecting these systems effectively is challenging because they do not share the same voice coding technology, known as a vocoder.

Transcoding between the AMBE+2™ vocoder used in LMR networks and the Advanced Multi-Rate (AMR) vocoder used cellular LTE networks can lead to the loss of intelligibility, increase delay and interfere with communications security. By utilizing the AMBE+2™ vocoder in both LMR and LTE systems transcoding is not required and communication intelligibility is maintained.
