Huawei EP680 eLTE Broadband Trunking Handset


The development of Mobile Broadband (MBB) has created a need to integrate MBB with traditional trunking for efficiency and performance. Based on an in-depth understanding of the requirements, Huawei has introduced the EP680 and EP650 professional LTE broadband trunking handsets. Each of these handsets integrates voice, data, and video services into a single device. Except for voice-only trunking, mobile users can communicate using video and Geographic Information System (GIS) services at the same time, providing better collaboration between response personnel. Compared with the EP650, the EP680 offers additional functions, such as a front camera, Bluetooth,and Wi-Fi.

Professional Performance for Timely Response

Because quick transfer of accurate information is crucial for the efficient dispatch of urgent resources, the EP680 handset supports a group call setup time of less than 300 ms and call pre-emptive time of less than 150 ms. Many other features of the handset also help ensure quick, accurate use in any emergency situation:

• Push-to-talk

• Private call

• Direct Mode Operation (DMO)

• TETRA, PLMN, and PSTN connectivity via the interoperating gateway

• Dual-microphone noise-canceling technology for a clear voice signal in 80-dB-noise environments and recognizable voice in 100-dB-noise environments

Live Video Improves Efficiency

 Live video is invaluable for conveying a person’s appearance or emergency situations, especially in noisy environments where voice communications might not be clear. Integrated voice and video trunking helps operating staff and field personnel get clear and complete information in real time. On-scene personnel can transmit live video to command-and-control centers, which can then dispatch the video to other personnel as needed.

High Reliability in the Harshest Environments

To deal with harsh working conditions, the EP680 is engineered to be waterproof, dustproof (IP67), and shockproof (MIL STD 810F). This mobile terminal withstands the toughest conditions and provides the high levels of in-field durability needed to drive down lifecycle support costs.

 • Withstands multiple 1.5m drops per MIL STD 810F

 • operates reliably after 200 consecutive 1m tumbles

• Rated IP67 design with complete protection against water and dust


Exceptional Connectivity

The EP680 supports both GSM/UMTS and LTE TDD models. It works with many different types of connectivity:

Private Network: LTE TDD 400 MHz

• Public 2G Network: GSM 850/900/1800/1900

• Public 3G Network: UMTS 900/1900

• 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi

• GPS, determines position within 10m in open terrain

• Bluetooth 4.0 EDR


Secure Operation

For data, photos, video, or voice, the EP680/EP650 brings information to users quickly, reliably, and securely:

• Air interface encryption

• End-to-end encryption

• Remote terminal activation and deactivation


Can be Customized

Based on the Android 4 OS, the EP680 provides extensive Software Development Kit (SDK) interfaces. These interfaces permit customizations to handle specialized requirements.
