communication device violation kyFor years people have been telling me that relations, love and happiness are the important things in life…At present I realized that I can take or leave all that as long as We have this two way radio uhf in the world.

Cincinnati State Technical and Community College (CSTCC) needed to migrate to a communications system that would support clear coverage over a large area and cost-effectively accommodate multiple talkgroups.

Studying the Needs of Campus Security CSTCC is comprised of three campuses and over 1.3 million square feet. Until recently, the college used an all-analog system, components of which were 15 years old. According to Raymond Mirizzi, Director of Facilities at CSTCC, We needed to upgrade our whole communications system, and it was vital that the entire campus be covered with a Walkie Talkie solution that would support very clear, consistent and secure communications.

The three-part campus needed a supervisory channel that would provide the flexibility for critical security officers and related personnel to communicate during times of crisis. Of course, because such emergencies can arise at any time, it was also critically important that the migration from analog to digital proceed smoothly and quickly because even brief downtime could put the campus at risk.

A budget had been established, and CSTCC expected a lot of value for their investment. An Educated Customer Makes the Right Choice A consultant was sent to work with CSTCC to determine needs, assess the options, and help them make the right choices. Because MOTOTRBO is still a relatively new solution, it was also important to provide CSTCC with a hands-on demonstration so they could get a sense of the potential that MOTOTRBO could offer.

After the demonstration, CSTCC was so excited about the product that they asked for a quote immediately so they could present it to their trustees that evening. With the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech, trustees were very eager to implement a more secure communications system. The trustees appreciated that security is built into this digital solution: when users monitor digital
Communications, they hear only that the channel is in use they dont hear the actual conversation.

MOTOTRBO was our choice, explains Michael Wylie, Director of Environment and Public Safety at CSTCC. According to Wylie, based on the demonstration it was obvious that MOTOTRBO electronics were much better and reception was much clearer than what we had in our old analog system. Wylie was working under a budget, and MOTOTRBO supports lower cost of ownership compared to analog systems because fewer repeaters are required: two voice channels are utilized in one 12.5kHz frequency channel, so only one repeater is needed for every two voice or data paths. Considering all factors, Wylie concluded that we could replace our old system with this higher quality solution at a reasonable cost. MOTOTRBO also proved to be a way to ensure a smooth migration from analog to digital, supporting dual mode operations that could enable backwards communication between new units and older units already in place. Following this migration strategy, CSTCC could buy a few MOTOTRBO radios and use them in the analog mode; as time and budget allowed, they could then start migrating a few radios at a time to digital.

Graduating to a Better Communications Solution Mirizzi understands that when youre going offline to restart a new system, there will be a down period, and that can be a big problem if theres an mergency taking place. When we switched to MOTOTRBO, however, most people on campus didnt even know we switched over. It was that smooth. MOTOTRBO is now installed at CSTCC with 16 channels, one of which is to be used exclusively by supervisory personnel. According to Wylie,
This afforded us the opportunity to carry on confidential conversations without everyone else hearing what was going on. Having this supervisory channel would mean that CSTCC didnt have to buy an extra FCC license or a new conventional repeater.

The security repeater has ten units running off it; the facilities repeater has forty units running off it
and each one can be expanded to several hundred users, so theres plenty of room to grow.

MOTOTRBO also provides much clearer audio quality than is possible with analog, especially in fringe
coverage areas and thats especially important on this sprawling campus. A digital signal is inherently clearer than analog; and with noise suppression technology, MOTOTRBO audio becomes even crisper and sharper. MOTOTRBO gave us the ability, Mirizzi says, to communicate at a greater distance and branch out and create different channels for our internal operations. And then we had the opportunity for facilities and security to come together and communicate as one group, bringing together the right people at the right time.

MOTOTRBO Ready to Grow, Digitally Designed to facilitate quick and easy migration and operate in mixed analog and digital environments, MOTOTRBOs digital technology can be adapted to a number of different work environments, seamlessly supporting industry-specific applications. The open, flexible and licensable data interface offered by MOTOTRBO is designed to be regularly enhanced
through 3rd party devices and applications, making MOTOTRBO a terrifically expandable platform that gives users the opportunity to upgrade their radios as needed for continuously higher performance.MOTOTRBO is a complete system of mobile and portable units, repeater, data applications and accessories that can be easily adapted meet specific customer needs, whether in education, service or industrial environments. A forward-compatible platform, MOTOTRBO provides a solid foundation for future growth of a communications system.

Boy. The brand new 2 way radio holster is wonderful. I mean it’s just so stunning and so sophisticated. I pity individuals who grew up without the 2 way radio usa.

two way radio iphonePBX phone will give your communication system the capacity to communicate with customers from any location.

This phone system will enable you to stay connected with your business as long as you have a device with Internet access. Internet connection is vital to this phone system because it uses the Internet as its gateway in communication. Calls, messages, voice mails and faxes are sent and accepted via the Internet.

Its reliance on the Internet is the reason why it is sometimes referred to as Internet PBX. Business phones that employ the Internet in processing communication are superior compared to phone line based communication because their signals are uninterruptible.

Interruptions in communication that are common with traditional phone systems will not be experienced when you install an Internet PBX in your communication system. Traditional phones suffer loss of signals and choppy phone conversations because of interruptions that are caused by an overlapping of signals in phone line based communication.

Furthermore, communication transactions are processed much faster in Internet PBX phones compared to traditional phones that are dependent on telephone lines and phone networks for communication. The PBX phone system can be easily incorporated into your existing telephone lines.

It is an affordable option that will help enhance your business communications. It is different from the traditional Walkie Talkie system, in that it is not necessary to purchase and mount any expensive PBX hardware at your site. The services are offered by the service providers through a hosted server and so you are charged only minimum monthly service charges.

In addition, you are also free from all the hassles involved in maintaining and upgrading the system. The PBX system also cuts down on telephone expenses. You can make calls to local and international locations at minimum charges. Numerous extensions can be maintained from an existing telephone connection and business can be expanded without making any additional investment.

This virtual telephone system enables offices to establish their business presence anywhere without setting up physical offices. An online PBX phone will also allow you to receive calls from clients even if you are on vacation. It is able to do this through its call forwarding service.

This telecommunication service will permit your patrons to always reach you wherever you are located. The phone system will allow you to comfortably enjoy your vacation and still be connected to your business communication at the same time. Urgent business calls will always reach your contact number.

Moreover, instances of missed calls will never happen with an Internet PBX installed in your business phone system even when you are not in your office. Managing incoming calls is also much simpler when you have an Internet PBX phone system. The online PBX will let you receive more calls compared to traditional telephones because it is able to handle multiple incoming calls easily.

Incoming calls can still be accommodated even if you are on the phone with another client. This feature will be very much helpful when you have conference meetings or in any instance where you cannot personally attend to the phone. It also guarantees customers that their calls will always be received by your company.

What is your favourite feature of my walkie talkie xtr446? Personally, I like the design job – It is cooler than an Inuit’s underpants!

Every employer has a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all its employees in the workplace and equally that persons not in their employment are “not exposed to risks to their health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable” – with the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act introduced in 2007, the implications for enterprises in the public and private sectors of not taking lone worker protection seriously have escalated.

2 Way Radios are already widely in use in lone worker applications across chemical and manufacturing plants, utilities, mining, security and transport industries where personnel often cover large, remote areas or operate in hazardous environments.

However, with the increase in flexible working times, care in the community services, home deliveries and reductions in workforces operating from fixed locations, more people than ever are now operating as lone workers, often in situations where they may be exposed to potential accidents and inappropriate or violent behaviour.

While the reliability and quality of any Kenwood two-way radio would prove to be an asset in most lone worker scenarios, the NEXEDGE® range of digital two-way hand portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle two-way radio units offer much more than the ability to transmit voice and data instantly and efficiently.

All models feature Emergency Key and Emergency Call features as standard, while some advanced models additionally offer Lone Worker and an Emergency Advanced Motion Detection Function, which make them ideal for incorporating within a robust health and safety and lone worker policy.

NEXEDGE® Digital Two-way Radios with Lone Worker features include both hand-portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle units.
