What is the difference between an FED-STD and MIL-STD ALE?

FED-STD refers to the FED-STD-1045 ALE, whereas MIL-STD refers to the MIL-STD-181-141B ALE. FED-STD ALE has the basic ALE feature set for calling and messaging, whereas MIL-STD has additional features such as NET calling, selective call types and LQA exchange.

NET calling allows you to group your users into nets, so rather than calling a particular person or everyone, you can call a certain group identified by a net. With MIL-STD ALE, you also have a variety of selective call types – such as global all-call, selective all-call, global any-call, selective any-call, double any-calls and more. Advanced ALE, part of MIL-STD ALE, enables you to force an LQA exchange.

Do you have a mechanism in place to tell customers when a product is being discontinued? If so, how much longer will support be available?

Discontinued products will be announced on our website and customers will be informed of such discontinuance directly and via our quarterly newsletter. Codan will provide a support plan for discontinued products as part of the discontinuance announcement. Discontinued product announcements can be accessed via the dedicated area on the Codan Communications Support page.
