The potential for radio communications has increased exponentially with the advent of digital radio and VOIP (Voice Over IP). Implementing these types of systems can greatly improve your existing equipment and provide for solutions never before possible.
Different Protocols, Different Applications
Not all digital radio equipment operates the same. Product decisions based on brands are often not as prudent as to how the different technologies work. Some utilize multiple timeslots in a single frequency, some utilize ultra-narrow bandwidth. Some work more effectively for multi-site operations, some better for multi-frequency operations.
We can help you design and implement a system that will greatly enhance the way you communicate, saving time and money. Contact us to help you navigate which products would be a good fit for your business.
Analog vs. Digital Two-Way Radio Coverage
The audio transmission process is quite different between traditional analog radio and modern digital radio. Analog radio sends signals in the form of sound waves in order to deliver audio, while digital radio transmits and receives by processing sounds into packets of numbers – increasing audio deliverability and quality.
With analog, you will get a noise floor (ambient static) in the background. The noise-to-signal ratio increases the further you get away from the transmitting radio, until eventually the audio coverage is unusable due to overpowering static. With digital, there is no noise floor. The audio stays clear and constant until the radio is out of range, yielding a significant increase in usable audio coverage.
