With the ever-present threats from natural and man-made disasters, civil unrest and terrorism, public safety agencies around the world are continually stretched to their limits in resourcing to manage situations in ways that will protect the public from injury or harm
When disaster strikes, it’s essential for police, fire, ambulance, medical and rescue services to be able to work together and communicate seamlessly to coordinate efforts.
Having a reliable two-way radio service is mission critical and the key to effective two-way radio communications in public safety is the interoperability of radio systems employed by the various first response services, the capacity of the network and its coverage: any interruption could have catastrophic consequences.
Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® multi-protocol NXDN, DMR, P25 digital solutions are designed to provide secure, fail-safe radio communications systems in public safety applications. Highly scalable, multi-channel conventional and simulcast trunked networks with IP connectivity ensure reliable service even when wired communications lines are rendered inoperable by adverse environmental conditions. Mobile radio system are designed to operate when all other communications services have failed, stand alone and resilient operation are often overlooked key features of mobile radio.
Cost-effective migration from analogue to digital
The beauty of a Kenwood digital two-way radio solution is that the investment in new equipment when upgrading from analogue can be phased over time as all Kenwood digital radio devices feature automatic analogue/digital Mixed Mode operation (which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios whatever the make) providing a predictable and cost effective path to full digital implementation.
Digital two-way radio solutions for public safety services
Kenwood NEXEDGE NXDN and NEXEDGE DMR offer highly flexible and infinitely scalable digital trunked systems for digital conventional, IP and trunked operation that can accommodate multiple user groups and sites. In addition, NEXEDGE DMR can be specified with simulcast and multi-frequency capabilities.
Linked to appropriate integrated application software, for example Kenwood’s KAS-20 AVL and Dispatch suite, users can greatly improve operational safety and security either at a single site or across multiple site and include a host of features including call recording, personnel and vehicle tracking.
Simulcast and Trunked capabilities
Kenwood DMR Tier 2 digital conventional and Tier 3 trunked systems with optional simulcast architecture can provide the capacity for more users while using fewer frequencies then was possible previously.
Rugged, Durable and Dependable
NEXEDGE® Digital Two-way Radios with Lone Worker features are available in both hand-portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle units which all conform to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G for ruggedness and durability and are IP54/55/67/68 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal for operation in harsh, outdoor environments.
To maximise efficiency and ensure 24/7 availability of clear, instant communication to first responder services, Kenwood hand-portable radios are equipped with batteries designed to last an entire shift without recharging in normal use. Spare batteries and chargers are available to enable 24-hour operation along with batteries with additional capacity for heavy duty cycles.
Solutions for every first responder operation
In addition to its NEXEDGE NXDN and NEXEDGE DMR systems, Kenwood can offer ETSI compliant dPMR, 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 two-way radio systems are widely employed by public safety agencies around the world including the national ambulance service in Lithuania, numerous fire services in Poland and regional police forces in Europe, Africa and the USA.
