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 increasingly harnesses integrated features including GPS-based vehicle tracking, 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 provide the safety, security and efficiency in general operations and emergency situations that meet the demands of the transport and fleet management. Whether in peer to peer, conventional, trunked or simulcast network systems; Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® digital two-way radio systems offer increased range, greater audio clarity, improved security against eavesdropping and more flexible management of user groups within local, regional, national or even international networks.
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.
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 sites and include a host of advanced features including call recording and personnel tracking – essential features in the event of an incident.
Simulcast and Multi-frequency capabilities
Kenwood DMR Tier 2 digital conventional and Tier 3 trunked systems with optional simulcast architecture provide the capacity for more users with fewer frequencies required to achieve greater coverage of a facility or facilities with less infrastructure.
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 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal for operation indoors and out.
