Yaesu FT2EFUSION1111

Yaesu's fusion is a late entry into the amateur digital market, it appeared around 2013. It uses C4FM FSK format. It is specifically designed for amateur radio use.
It operates in several modes to allow voice, data (9.6kbs) or both.
Being a newer protocol, its forward error correction possibly has the edge on Dstar when it comes to packet loss (R2D2)
Text messages can be sent to individuals or groups.
Yaesu tried to make up ground by offering repeaters at half price to recognisable institutions (clubs, etc.).
Their repeaters will function in fusion digital mode or FM analogue.
The Wires-X VOIP system (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) can be used for world wide connections, combined with Fusion it can be connected to nodes, rooms and users. It is easier to operate than many VOIP networks with automatic reconnection and easy identifying. Wires-X could also be used with analogue radio, but without the advanced features of digital.
Further information on the Wires-X network can be found here

C4FM fusion radios can also be used with the DV-dongle, DV-Mega, Blueshark, or similar devices also used for Dstar and DMR. Just like having your own personal simplex node, these devices connect to your PC. Connection information on Fusion connections via these devices can be found here http://xreflector.net/

It is now possible to obtain a device integrated or powered by a Raspberry Pi or similar small computer board, removing the need of a PC.
