Transport & Fleet
The rail, bus, trucking and fleet management industries employ two-way radio to provide voice and data communication between command and control centres, vehicles, station / depot staff and maintenance teams. The industry has also increasingly harnessed integrated features including GPS-based vehicle tracking capability, which provide ‘live’ information on a vehicle’s position; a real operational benefit in keeping staff and customers well informed.
Kenwood two way radio systems deliver the safety, security and efficiency in general operations and emergency situations that the transport and fleet management industries demand from their communications systems today and into the future. Whether in analogue peer to peer, conventional or trunked network systems or with Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® digital two-way radio systems which offers increased range, greater clarity, improved security against eavesdropping and more flexible management of user groups within local, regional, national or even international networks.
The beauty of a Kenwood two-way radio solution is that you can upgrade from an analogue system to digital should your requirements change over time because Kenwood NEXEDGE® devices include Mixed Mode, a feature which allows all NEXEDGE® digital hand portable walkie-talkies and mobile in-vehicle units to communicate automatically with existing analogue radios whatever the make; providing a straightforward and cost effective migration path to digital technology.
Today, in addition to its NEXEDGE® fully scalable digital systems, Kenwood can offer dPMR, DMR digital solutions alongside the latest ProTalk digital license-free PMR446 radios featuring digital/analogue mixed mode and ProTalk DECT fully duplex digital wireless intercom systems.
Kenwood hand portable walkie talkies conform to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G for ruggedness and durability and are IP54/55 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal for operation in a wide variety of open or harsh environments.
Kenwood two-way radio systems are widely in use in road and rail transport and fleet applications around the world including the Bangkok Mass Transit System, Thailand, CSX Corporation, USA, Dr Richard, Austria, SBB CFF FFS Swiss Railways and at London Bridge Station, UK.
