The Lexicon represents one of the biggest Town Centre regenerations in the UK. In addition to 70 new shops and restaurants, the project also encompasses improvements to the existing High Street buildings and the restoration and extension of local landmark, The Bull.
With a new 1,300 space multi-storey car park, provided by Bracknell Forest Council, and improvements to local highways, The Lexicon Bracknell is set to become one of Berkshire’s most convenient and vibrant shopping and leisure destinations.
The opening of the Lexicon provided an opportunity for a new radio system to be deployed, that covered not only the centre but the wider town centre. Members of the Management Team had been familiar with MOTOTRBO having made use of it in Princess Square.
In time for opening day all stakeholders had reviewed the portfolio of products and chosen a specification that gave both the Management and Tenants, a future proof solution, to respond to the demands of a busy retail environment.
Radiocoms recommended Motorola MOTOTRBO™ radios with IMPRES™ batteries to help increase the operational readiness. IMPRES™ audio accessories are in use to suppress ambient noise, amplify loudness and improve voice intelligibility. After extensive trialling it was decided that the MOTOTRBO radios were the best devices to meet The Lexicon’s requirements. Some 170 DP4401e were chosen to provide the best user experience.
With this dynamic evolution of MOTOTRBO digital two-way radios, you’re better connected, safer and more productive. The DP4000e Series is designed for the skilled professional who refuses to compromise. With high-performance integrated voice and data, and advanced features for efficient operation, these next-generation radios deliver complete connectivity to your organisation.
From here the SLR5500 Base Station was chosen to provide the increased coverage required.
With its sleek form factor and low power consumption, the MOTOTRBO SLR5500 is engineered for low cost of ownership. And with a huge leap forward in technology, it represents the next generation in repeaters as the cornerstone of a MOTOTRBO professional two-way radio system.
Capacity Plus was enabled to simplify the use and increase the efficient of this soon to busy system. As a scalable, single-site digital trunking solution, Capacity Plus expands the capacity of your MOTOTRBO communication system even further. Over a thousand radio users can quickly and efficiently share business-critical voice and data communication on the same system without having to add new frequencies.
