Digital Radio in the Healthcare Environment
MotoTRBO and DMR Technology in the Healthcare environment
MotoTRBO and DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) Technology is quickly evolving into the current industry digital radio standard. With many benefits, DMR helps expand on current systems and increase overall efficiency and productivity by enabling an organization to make the best use of its current resources. DMR technology introduces a new level of inseparability with existing analog and digital systems, as well as provides an extra layer of privacy that can be beneficial to patient and organizational security.
Expanding on existing systems
Digital two-way radio technology such as P25 and DMR allow you to make better use of existing spectrum while adding many features that help improve efficiency and operations. Digital two-way radio not only provides crystal clear communications but enables you to make use of low-speed data features such as:
- Louder, crisp and clear audio
- Text messaging
- Private calling
- Digital Paging
- Over the air reprogramming (OTAR)
- Telemetry (Unit tracking via GPS)
- Two timeslot TDMA – The ability to have two simultaneous conversations at once on a single frequency
- Multi-site linking (link repeaters together at multiple sites to increase communications range)
- Broader coverage
- Advanced control features – password protect and kill (STUN) radios that are lost or stolen
- Security – protecting privacy is easier with encryption
