Boy. The newest Radio is incredible. I mean it is just so beautiful so highly developed. I pity people who grew up without the Radio.
The TH1n from Airbus Defence and Space is the thinnest and most light-weight Tetra handset worldwide available today.

NEDAA, Atlas Telecom and Airbus Defence and Space committed to continuing to deliver state-of-the-art public safety solutions based on proven track record
Abu Dhabi – State-of-the-art Professional Mobile Kenwood radio (PMR) technology from Airbus Defence and Space formed the centrepiece of an interactive conference organised by the Professional Communication Corporation – NEDAA Corporation and Atlas Telecom that took place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), at the beginning of June. 90 participants from various public safety organisations from the UAE, such as the Dubai Police, Civil Defence, Ambulance, Electricity and Water Authority, Airports, and Roads and Transport Authority, attended the event. The audience was provided with an update on the latest technological developments as well as information about new network infrastructure elements, including the Claricor solution for small to medium-sized networks, the latest Tetra (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) terminals like the TH1n, the world’s smallest Tetra radio, and the LTE (Long Term Evolution) roadmap for developing broadband from Airbus Defence and Space.
Airbus Defence and Space has been active in the Middle East since 2005. The company has set up Tetra Two way Radio communication networks in Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, either in the oil and gas sectors, for defence organizations or for public safety organizations of those countries (either as the prime contractor or through its partner Atlas Telecom). Airbus Defence and Space has so far deployed eight Tetra networks in the region, where more than 1000 base stations have been installed and are in operation.
The NEDAA Professional Communication Corporation is a secure telecom network operator in the UAE that uses Airbus Defence and Space technology provided by Atlas Telecom. This technology provides secure and reliable communication services to all specialised governmental, semi-governmental and private institutions that aspire to be leaders in the field of secure telecommunications for public safety organisations. The Dubai government’s strategic plan for 2015 includes the preparation of further network developments that take into account future communication needs. The conference provided a valuable insight into different possible scenarios for the network’s evolution.

2 way radio For Secure And Safe Communication!

0

With very little information on the internet about walkie talkie handset’s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.

Walkie talkie radios are a great communication device, which help us keep in touch all the time and during any weather condition. They are more efficient than cell phones. Walkie talkie radios can even work in severe storms as the signals are very strong and the speaker of these radios is very loud and clear. Where security and safety is vital, walkie talkie radios are the best choice.

Using a Walkie Talkie Radio

It is very simple to use a walkie talkie radio. It is a push-to-talk device that allows you to listen while the other speaks. The button when pushed allows the transmission of voice from one walkie talkie to another. Due to the presence of a speaker, you can easily address even a group of people. For the radios to be in sync, they need to be set at the same frequency.

With the development of digital two-way radios, transmission of messages from both the speaker and the receiver has been possible just like cell phones. This is possible through two different radio frequencies transmitted at the same time from both ends.

Advantages of Using A Digital 2 Way Radio System

* Exceptional sound clarity

* Reduction in noise and sound interference

* Cost-effective

* Extra features like GPS, text also provided

* Can function in both settings–digital and analogue

* Digital two-way radio batteries are more efficient and work for a longer time period than analogue ones

Two-way radio accessories like batteries, headset, and the case are also easily available online and at a reasonable price. They are as easily available as a laptop battery or any other electronic product in the market. If you intend to increase the efficiency of your business, buy walkie talkies (digital two-way systems) that are a more secure means of communication as well.

Buying Walkie Talkie Radios

We see many online advertisements where two-way radios for sale. However, we should take care of certain things before choosing the one for our use.

* Usage purpose: The purpose for which a Kenwood two way radio is to be used should be very clear. This will help us in choosing the right model. If the usage is for official purpose, you should choose a licensed model; if it is just for fun and casual activities, an unlicensed model will serve the purpose.

* Features required: The distance that is required for communication is also a factor along with the coverage area, which is essential for its usage. Tall buildings and hills can affect the transmission of signals. So, these things should be kept in mind.

* Accessories available: Accessories like chargers, battery, and adaptor are equally important while choosing a walkie talkie radio. They also determine the efficiency of the device when put to use.

Walkie talkie radios are useful both outdoor and indoor activities. Nowadays, they are a popular choice for businesses as a secure and assured means of communication.

Why use a Two way radio

two way radio service providersWhilst many of our readers are interested in some of our own posts, here is one i found surfing around edu blogs.com it is much better written than I could ever expect to achieve. Maybe someday I will get to this rank, you never know.

When it comes to Walkie Talkies, many folks get confused by claims of producers about range. Keep in thoughts that challenging radio environments will rapidly cut your range to a minimum of about 300 yards, or about a mile or so in somewhat much better circumstances. Steel cars are even worse, and tinted windows are only a little much better. Only lots of height will get you to the maximums claimed by manufacturers. In any case, the manufacturers test their radios under decidedly unrealistic conditions, using facilities in the unobstructed flat-lands of Florida, using elevated testing platforms. Discussion on 2 way radio energy:

This service is licensed for the maximum amount of power that the government allows; about 4 watts. FRS or Family Radio Service radios are automatically limited to only 1/2 watt; barely enough to get down the street. Most much better radios are billed as combined GMRS/FRS, but the walkie talkie automatically cuts power to 1/2 watt on the GMRS channels. Walkie Talkies are not cell phones

This is a lot of power, thinking about that most digital cell phones these days operate on about 500 milliwatts or less, most of the time. However, cell phones use a near invisible network of “cell” sites all close to us, on high building corners, hills and mountain tops, so they seldom have to reach up and out farther than a couple of hundred yards. Cell websites use height and power to boost variety of your tiny cellphone signal. A walkie talkie has to do things the tough way, without the assist of a cell site. However, four watts will drain a battery quickly and requires slightly more expensive, larger and heavier internal components to handle the additional energy.

Getting said this, anybody who has spent time in the field with these issues knows that dependable communications is key. Some settings, such as using radios car to car, on urban streets or in heavily forested areas will reduce the variety of even the most powerful radio from miles to a couple of hundred yards. “Line-of-site” is the rule for radios like this, so if you have height, your range will be greatly extended. With obstructions, signals may be absorbed or reflected away.

The rule of thumb, even for somebody just getting enjoyable with these radios, is the much more power the better. In the wilderness, trees and rocks form similar barriers to radio signals, but as a safety device outdoors the radios truly need to perform reliably so the max energy makes for more peace of mind in tracking children and hiking partners. Therefore, unless you really require the little size of the five.five inch Cobra LI5600 walkie talkie, you may want to go for the increased power of Cobra’s seven inch (including antenna) LI7020, or LI7200.

Radios are inexpensive enjoyable for the whole family. When it comes to variety however, maintain your expectations realistic. Read your instruction manual, keep your settings as simple as feasible and go for it in the both genuine and urban jungles!

North Olmsted accepts new digital police two Way Radios from Cuyahoga County to improve.

So i discovered this post on the net and i understand that just posting it like a whole piece isn’t the right thing, I got consent from the original writer and read up the way to curate articles, so this is it…….i thought this was interesting as it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working within the industry.

communication device mounts for wheelchairsThe city’s police department will receive 20 new digital radios without charge from Cuyahoga County as part of an effort to switch local police departments to a new radio system that allows for improved communication between departments.

The new radios, which use the state’s Multi-Agency Walkie Talkie Communication System, are valued at more than $60,000, according to a resolution approved by City Council accepting the radios. The county purchased the Motorola radios using federal homeland security grants. Cuyahoga County cities have been applying to the county for the radios, which are being distributed to reduce the cost to local communities for switching radio systems.

“This only provides a part of the radios we need,” said North Olmsted police Detective Chuck Fioritto.

The city needs a total of 40 to 43 digital radios before it can switch to the new communications system. It may qualify for some additional free radios from the county, but it also may end up purchasing some units. The city is still looking at its options, said Detective Robert Wagner.

The MARCS system uses a series of towers located across the state that allow any department on the MARCS network to communicate with any other department, state agency or hospital using the network.

The North Olmsted Fire Department already is using the system.

“The MARCS system is a closed system, but it goes statewide,” Safety Director Donald Glauner said. “If, for instance, North Olmsted were to pursue somebody and they got as far as going down (Interstate) 71, they could contact the Mansfield post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.”

The current radio system makes it difficult for officers to communicate with anyone more than one or two communities away.

Fioritto said the biggest benefit likely would be that departments across a wide area could easily communicate in the event of a widespread disaster.

“This is a result of 9/11 when New York and New Jersey police and fire had difficulties communicating with each other,” Fioritto said.

The North Olmsted Police Department hopes to make the switch to the new digital radio system within a few months.

“It should be a huge improvement for everybody,” Fioritto said.

Motorola defends contracting practices

communication between devices wifiYou can be safe in the wisdom that I bring the best two way radio online articles, some of them are my own a number of which are curated by me, if i decide to use someone elses content its because its appropriate to my readership, so feel confident you are reading the best from my industry.

Morola Solutions is rejecting as innuendo a series of articles in which McClatchy examined the companys decades-long dominance of the emergency communications market.

The stories described multiple ways that city, county and state officials have favored Motorola with noncompetitive contracts, including from at least nine of the nations 20 largest cities. The firm has reaped billions of dollars in annual revenue amid a nationwide push to avoid a repeat of the radio failures of 9-11.

In a statement, the company called it very disturbing that a news organization would cast suspicion of any Motorola contract with a government entity that did not fit a generic, competitive-bid model, and at the same time cast aspersions on the integrity of the government entities with which we do business.

Motorola issued the statement and sent a letter to The Sacramento Bee, a McClatchy newspaper, which published an editorial Sunday challenging policymakers to ask hard questions about how the company has preserved an estimated 80 percent share of the public safety Walkie Talkie market.

Motorola said various legally available contract vehicles that forgo competitive bids enable governments to procure in a manner that can achieve cost savings for taxpayers, and enable faster implementation, which can be an important consideration for equipment that can serve as a lifeline for first responders.

The company did not address concerns about its radio prices up to $7,500 apiece.

McClatchy also reported that foundations for Motorola and its former parent donated more than $25 million over six years to nonprofits with police- and firefighter-related missions, aiding a constituency that has backed its products.

The company called it very disturbing that a news organization would question a law-abiding companys community citizenship.

Motorolas employees and shareholders are deeply proud of the investments our Foundation makes to better the communities where we operate, it said, adding that the donations further the invaluable partnership we have with the public safety community.

In addition, the company defended former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, who responded to radio outages from Hurricane Katrina by spearheading a push for a new statewide radio system and a separate high-speed broadband data-delivery network for first responders.

Motorola won both contracts, which could generate $300 million. Months after leaving office, Barbour registered as a Motorola lobbyist, McClatchy reported.

Barbour, a Republican, showed tremendous leadership throughout the rebuilding of the devastated areas of Mississippi, the company said.

Leaders like Governor Barbour personally understand how the public safety community relies on survivable, interoperable communications during disasters and crises, the company said. That kind of leadership and experience is invaluable to us and the first responders Motorola Solutions serves every day across the country. We are proud to have Governor Barbour on our team.
