In the two-way radio history, analogue radios are considered as the one that’s mostly used, which actually had revolutionized communication in different industries.
In fact, the latest transformation when it comes to the two-way radio communications would be with the digital portable radios or DMR. If you wish to know more about it, below are some benefits of it.
DMR would be considered as an open standard, which actually is not proprietary to single manufacturers. DMR standards actually specify that DMR equipment needs to be compatible, which is why a radio would work for any network, which then helps to improve the availability of the pricing and the options.
Comes with a Clear and Loud Audio
A microphone analogue radio relays every sound, but the DMR will be able to provide you with clearer audio and it also comes with less distortion, less static or less background noise because this converts voice information to digital data. A smart new feature in DMR comes with an intelligent audio that will automatically adjust with the radio’s volume in order for it to fit with the noise level within the environment.
Gives Better Coverage
With the digital portable radios can give better coverage whether it’s across a single or multi site operation. If ever the single strength decreases, a digital portable radio has more range than analogue types because the audio quality is maintained with the edge of a coverage area.
Comes with an Advanced Control Feature
A DMR standard uses a second time slot or TDMA for a reverse channel signalling. Though the first channel is being on a call, instructions will be sent to the radio through a second time slot channel. It will enable priority call control, emergency call preemption or the remote control on the radio that’s transmitting, which will give the radio system operator a high degree of flexibility and control.
Long Battery Life
Digital technology is more energy efficient than the analogues because of the fact that the DMR technology uses a transmitter for the radio for half the time compared to narrowband analogue radios due to the TDMA. This will reduce the drain of the battery by about 50%, which will help to increase the talk time available between the charges and enable much longer communications for a single charge.
Protection of privacy is much easier with digital portable radios that have encryption and authentication to where the radio exchanges a key with the system first prior to the operation. Such features would be the reason as to why it becomes harder for others to listen on the frequency, making communications private.
