ANALOG VS. DIGITAL TWO-WAY RADIOS: WHY IT PAYS TO START THE MIGRATION NOW
Does your aging communications solution have you thinking about what’s next? When it comes to unified communications, analog radios have long been a reliable option, but today, digital two-way radios offer a range of benefits that make them the undeniable next step. Here’s why it makes sense to upgrade now.
Next-Level Efficiency and Productivity
Remember when you had to carry around multiple devices, one dedicated to email, one for phone calls, and a laptop for business applications? Today, smartphones combine the best features from each device. But smartphones are not always the best solution on the job and where they fall short, digital two-way radios pick up for reliable, unified communication and collaboration.
With WAVE™ Workgroup Communications, workers can instantly communicate with one-button push-to-talk access across any device ranging from two-way radios, smartphones and landlines to intercoms and PCs. So, someone using a smartphone off-site can instantly communicate with an employee using MOTOTRBO, onsite. Since data and voice features are all on one device, both management and employees can receive real-time information, the location of people and assets, and other critical data that drives much more informed decision-making, previously not possible on analog.
The Basics, Evolved
Moving to a digital network also offers some exciting advances to core communications functionality, including better voice quality, increased radio capacity, better signal coverage, and longer battery life.
Just like the jump from cellular phones to the modern smartphone, the jump to digital two-way radios allows users to hear and be heard much more clearly, without static or distortion. This is because when you use a traditional analog radio, every sound that's picked up by the microphone is transmitted. Digital offers much clearer sound, with features such as background noise-cancellation and intelligent audio. The result is extraordinary voice clarity that stays sharper, even as the signal gets farther out of range.
Digital networks are also very efficient with spectrum requirements, so they can accommodate two completely separate "channels" in one 12.5 kHz channel, allowing you to double the number of devices on the same channel, without fear of interference.
Plus, because digital technology is more energy-efficient than analog, MOTOTRBO radios can last much longer on a single charge, up to 40% longer, so users can communicate the entire day without recharging.
APX RADIO MANAGEMENT RADIO PROGRAMMING MADE SIMPLE
Managing your radio fleet is an important part of day-to-day operations. But it can also be expensive and time consuming. Updates to add or remove channels, upgrade firmware, or add purchased features through FLASHport upgrade, take substantial time and resources because each radio has to be programmed individually. Motorola’s Customer Programming Software Radio Management application simplifies APX™ radio configuration and management, saving you time and money while ensuring your users can accomplish their mission without interruption. The APX CPS Management application can program up to 16 radios at one time and track which radios have been successfully programmed, providing a clear view of the entire radio fleet and a codeplug history for each radio
Benefits of using Motorola Remote Speaker Mics
BENEFITS OF MOTOROLA REMOTE SPEAKER MICROPHONES (RSMs)
Two-way radio offers users reliable, instantaneous communications and the addition of a Remote Speaker
Microphone (RSM) can make a portable radio even easier, safer and more effective to use. Motorola radios
are built to withstand knocks and bumps, but keeping the radio on the belt helps protect it from the drops
and misuse that can occur when users hold the radio in their hand. Using an RSM allows the user to make
and receive calls without the need to remove the radio from their belt, leaving their hands free to hold guard
rails, climb ladders, carry equipment or operate machinery. The RSM clips to a collar or epaulette making it
easy to access when needed and since the speaker is then closer to the user’s ear, it’s easier to hear calls
so helps prevent missed messages
