Digital Radios: New Technology Offers Advanced Benefits

Two-Way Radios

The benefits of switching from analog to digital two-way radios may not be obvious at first. Though many organizations are unaware of the advantages of going digital, it is important to keep pace with the technology as it evolves. Improvements in communications have led to greater efficiency, longer battery life, and a wider range, making digital radios a better choice in many situations.

Digital Radios New Technology Offers Advanced Benefits

Hytera America, a Miramar, Florida-based provider of communications systems and products, delivers the most advanced services available to build, operate and maintain wireless networks from analog to digital, subscriber to system, and voice transmission to data applications. By keeping its customers educated about the latest technologies, Hytera helps organizations relying on wireless communications networks reach optimal performance with digital radios.

Analog two-way radios have been the standard for decades. The analog Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) standard, created by the FCC in the late 1970s, allows trunked two-way communications in certain frequency bands for business and commercial systems. In 2007, the Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) standard was introduced for the same types of applications using digital technology.

Schools, hospitals, hotels, and sports venues, as well as industries such as oil and gas, mining, and transportation, can pay to use an SMR service, connecting to the network with either rented or purchased radio equipment. However, many organizations that have been using SMR for years may not be aware of the newest digital radio technologies that could improve their communications systems. Hytera carries a comprehensive product portfolio compliant with multiple protocols including DMR and Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA), and provides customized solutions to a wide range of users across the world.

Hytera digital radios are built with the most current, advanced technology, providing higher quality audio with a minimal loss of voice. They are also more compatible with a variety of systems, and have a wider coverage range. Because they are more efficient, digital radios feature a longer battery life, and require less frequent charging or battery change out. Additional capabilities include GPS tracking and messaging, as well as private calling. Through education about the benefits and capabilities of the latest technology, Hytera helps customers solve complex communications challenges.

Technology is continually evolving, and radio communication is evolving as well. Less-efficient analog radios are becoming outdated as newer digital radios provide more effective communication, greater efficiency, and many other benefits. By keeping its customers educated about the latest radio technology, Hytera promotes optimal communication through more efficient wireless networking solutions.
