Two Way Radio Products and Solutions.
8 Reasons why two-way radio
can benefit your organisation.
Its form may have evolved but with its adaptability and inbuilt user-friendly,
safety-enhancing characteristics businesses of every size in both the private
and public sector still continue to benefit from radio communications equipment.
What is two way radio?
A hand portable radio transmits and receives radio waves, keeping teams connected over one site or many locally, nationally, and globally. Often referred to as walkie-talkies, they are one of the most widely utilised technologies for businesses to share information safely and efficiently. Advanced, built-in encryption technology offered by every radio manufacturer ensures your radio equipment is protected for complete privacy.
Devices vary from simple back to back operations using the PTT button on the radio, to more complexed communication systems that utilise data to share locations, issue work tasks or connect into other technologies such as BMS systems or CCTV, for example. Mobile two-way radios can support employees in vehicles, offices or control rooms.
What are the differences between licence free vs. licenced?
Non-licenced (PMR446) radios are restricted to a maximum 0.5 Watt transmission power and work on a licence free allocation of 16 frequencies. In built-up areas such as cities, these channels can become congested. PMR446 walkie talkies are ideal for small-site, same-building and line of sight outdoor activities.
Private Mobile Radio (PMR) /Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) work in conventional or trunked mode and will be programmed to your own specific OFCOM frequencies. With the ability to link one site to global locations together licenced hand-portables are suited to organisations who need high-power communications, advanced voice features and integrated data services.
Land Mobile Radio (LMR) TETRA radio is a global open standard for digital trunked radio technology. The standard was developed by public safety and radio industry experts together with the ETSI to ensure TETRA portable/handheld, mobile / vehicle-mounted and fixed-base devices, as well as the network infrastructure, provide secure, reliable and instant voice and data communications in mission-critical, operations-critical and business-critical environments.
Two-Way radio repeaters and base stations.
Occasionally locations can present challenges in regards to your coverage footprint.
By installing a repeater base station for your radio communications system to operate through you can overcome any signalling obstructions to ensure reliable communication between either multiple locations or a single site. Additionally, it will boost the capacity of your system.
Motorola Solutions and Hytera offer base station solutions that can be connected to new or existing systems.
