Radio System Design and Installation

Digital two-way radios bring enhanced voice quality for clearer communication, longer battery life to last you a full shift and private one-to-one calls for voice privacy. Advanced applications allow a host of additional benefits to radio users; adding real value to your business and operations. Building your digital radio system could not be easier.

The IP-based connectivity of infrastructure will allow you to link base stations to add resource and link sites to form networks. Integration with other systems can allow alarm reporting and track information to be delivered directly to your radio or PC-based dispatcher.

Tailoring this new radio system to meet your requirements is where our knowledgeable and supportive team at 2CL can help. We can also offer site visits to live systems where the benefits of digital two-way radio can be discussed in detail, in person. This can take many forms but may revolve around the need to communicate over larger areas or across multiple sites. Private one-to-one calling and calling from a radio into the telephone system are very powerful tools which have enhanced the value of handheld two-way radios within businesses.

The skills required to understand and develop radio systems for clients are professionally supported by the whole 2CL team, we can help you arrive at the correct solution, both operationally and commercially.
