G. The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall meet requirements of UL ANSI 864 Ninth

1.2. SCOPE:

  1. IPGSM-4G Communicator shall be installed in accordance to the project

specifications and drawings.
B. Basic Performance:
1. The IPGSM-4G Communicator connect directly to the primary and secondary

analog UL Listed Fire Alarm Control Panel telephone ports.

2. The Communicator will communicate to GSM networks in the area including 2G,

3G and 4G. The multi-GSM platform technology automatically detects and

chooses the best network in the area based on signal strength and immediately self

adjusts for operation.

3. Supports both dynamic (DHCP) or Public and Private Static IP addressing.
4. Communicates over any type of customer-provided Ethernet 10/100 Base network

connection (LAN or WAN), DSL modem or cable modem.

5. Data transmits over standard contact-ID protocol is secured with the industry’s

advanced encryption standard (AES 256 bit).

6. Dual path communications: Uses Internet or GSM as primary.

  1. User programmable: 7720P Programming Tool

8. Diagnostic LEDs: Signal strength and status indications.

9. IP and GSM tested everyday

10. All circuits shall be power-limited, per UL864 requirements.


When a fire alarm condition (Alarm, Supervisory or Trouble) is detected, the Fire

Alarm Control Panel goes off-hook to dial the central station. The IPGSM-4G Dialer

Capture Module detects the off-hook condition and provides the fire panel with a dial

tone. When the fire panel detects the dial tone, it begins dialing the central station.

The Dialer Capture Module considers the three second period after dialing as the

number dialing has been completed. After the dialing is completed, the Dialer

Capture Module returns a handshake to the fire panel.

The fire panel then sends the contact ID reports to the Dialer Capture Module, which

in turn sends a kiss-off after the report is successfully received from the fire panel.

The Dialer Capture Module sends the contact ID reports to the iGSM

communications module. When all the reports are sent, the fire panel goes on-

hook. The iGSM communications module then transmits the messages to the central

station (either over the internet or the GSM network).
