Adding a TLK 150 Device

This section provides instructions for adding an individual TLK 150 device. You can add the TLK 150 devices one at a time or you can add them to WAVE using a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet method is advised if you have many TLK 150 devices to add. For instructions on adding multiple devices via spreadsheet see Importing TLK 150s from a Spreadsheet.

IMPORTANT

When you register a TLK 150, a license is automatically added to your monthly subscription.

Activation for SIM can take up to 48 hrs. This is to establish a data session.

To manually add a TLK 150 device

  1. You can find the Serial Number and IMEI number you need to register the device on the box of each TLK 150 unit and record the IMEI and the S/N numbers.
    If you do not have the box, then alternatively you can identify the IMEI and S/N numbers from the label under the battery.
  2. Login to WAVE using your Customer account credentials.

Cloning a WAVE Device

Cloning allows you to copy the details of an existing registered device when creating a WAVE device. All configuration details of the template device are copied to a new device. The “Cloning Device from” field is only visible when you have already registered a minimum of two WAVE devices and configured two users. Make sure that you meet the template requirements for the details to be copied to the new device. Mouse over the Information icon next to the “Cloning Device from” to view the template requirements.

To clone a device from the template, follow these steps:

  1. After you add a device in the Register Device page, Click NEXT.

  2. From the Clone Device from the drop-down, select the template device to copy the details.

Scenario 1:
If you are cloning a device from 2.0 software to 3.0 software (mixed registration):

  1. All contacts and talkgroup details are copied from the cloning device.
  2. Only 8 talkgroups and channels configuration of the 2.0 software is copied.
    Note: You cannot modify contacts and talkgroup details when cloning.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Review the details and click Submit. A confirmation message displays.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click View My Devices to go to the device list.

Manage Talkgroup

You can manage the talkgroup for the 2.0 software devices from the WOC portal.

To manage the talkgroup, follow these steps:

  1. From the Users menu, click Manage in the Talkgroup column.
  2. The talkgroup management page displays. Configure the details and click Save to apply the changes.

If you are cloning a device from 3.0 software to 2.0 software (mixed registration):

  3. Click Next.
  4. Review the details and click Submit. A confirmation message displays.
  5. Click OK.

Manage Talkgroup

You cannot manage the position assignment for the talkgroups for 3.0 software devices from the WOC portal. To manage the talkgroup positions and features for the 3.0 software devices, you can access the Central Admin Tool from the Contacts and Features in the WOC portal.

To manage the talkgroup, follow these steps:

  1. From the Users menu, click Manage in the Contacts and Features column.
  2. The Central Admin Tool page displays. Click the Talkgroup tab and Configure the details.
  3. Click Save to apply the changes.

Auto Channel Assignment

WOC supports the Auto Channel assignment of the talkgroups for both 2.0 and 3.0 devices. In the Auto Channel Assignment, whenever you assign a talkgroup to the user from the WOC or Central Admin Tool, the talkgroup automatically takes the next available talkgroup position. For example, if a user is assigned with 6talkgroups with talkgroup Position from 1 to 6 then the newly assigned talkgroup takes the next available talkgroup position 7 in the Position list.

Also, for any talkgroup position more than the 16, the Talkgroup Priority shows as not in the scan list.

Cloning Devices – Post Device Registration

The previous procedure for the cloning is applicable only at the time of registering a new device. The Post Registration Cloning, allows you to copy the contacts, talkgroups, or configuration (device parameters) after the device registration. You can copy the configuration details of the source device without selecting the contacts and talkgroups or can copy only the contacts and talkgroups to the cloning device without selecting the source device.
