P25 TP9100 Portables

  1. The TP9100 series (TP9155/TP9160 and TP9135/TP9140) offer industry-leading digital audio clarity, superb build quality and are tested in a P25 Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP) recognized laboratory for interoperability.

    The TP9100s are tough, dependable and sophisticated pieces of radio engineering. For mixed fleets and migration ease, the TP9100s give you the flexibility of working in digital, analog and auto-sensing dual mode, and can be used on analog, P25 conventional, trunked and simulcast networks.

    • The TP9155/60 portables are specifically designed for the needs of first responders, ensuring communications are secure and interoperable
    • The TP9135/40* portables also provide reliable digital communications for Public Safety users who require high audio clarity, but without all the possible features and configurations of the TP9155/60
