Update: XLX 2.2.2 now fully functional with BrandMeister DMR, including D-Star traffic originating the inter-connected XLX.
The new BrandMeister Master server version 20180116-121244 brings the ability for a master server to establish an interlink with xlxd 2.2.1 . For reflector administrators, one of the major benefits of xlxd 2.2.1 is the ability to handle both D-Star and DMR audio flows with the ability to leverage AMBE transcoding.
When an interlink is established between a BrandMeister TalkGroup and xlxd 2.2.1, it is important to know that xlxd will only perform D-Star~~DMR AMBE transcoding when sending D-Star audio to the BrandMeister master server. Outbound audio from BrandMeister DMR to the XLX server intended for D-Star traffic is not being AMBE-transcoded by the XLX server.
Below is a technical explanation of the reason. If you are planning to request an interlink, please also take notice of the current xlxd issues.

Today, November 24th marks the second birthday of the BrandMeister DMR Network project!
Two years ago, BrandMeister revolutionized DMR HAM Radio by offering a uniform experience: any talkgroup accessible from any repeater or hotspot; the support for private calls; an audio web streaming server for all talkgroups, an easy to use web interface for repeater owners to do their own configuration, an interconnection with c-Bridges, D-Star reflectors, YSF reflectors, and the Wires-X network; and a convenient wiki documentation.
Since then the core software and the back-end architecture have had several optimizations phases, and the implementation of the latest software technologies to ensure a fast network with high-audio-quality. New and unique feature have been added on a regular basis, such as repeater alerts, repeater and hotspots passwords, Air Security, a full APRS/GPS implementation for all common terminals, etc. Continue reading “It’s BrandMeister 2nd Birthday !”
