Migrate to DMR Tier II and Tier III Solutions
Tier II devices offer fully automatic digital/analogue mixed mode operation which makes Kenwood DMR ideally suited to users migrating from an analogue system to the benefits of digital without having to replace all their devices at the same time, while Simulcast operation and Tier III trunked network capabilities ensure there is a Kenwood solution to meet a variety of operations specific end-user applications.
The Kenwood DMR range includes low, mid and high-tier hand portables, mobiles, repeaters and software suites; all designed to meet the requirements of commercial and operations critical radio systems in an ETSI compliant, multi-vendor solution.
The 'All for one and one for all' NX-1000 Series, feature-rich, entry-level hand-portable radios available in NXDN and DMR formats.
The NX-1200 hand portable radio is available in VHF or UHF versions configured for either DMR + FM analogue or NXDN + FM analogue operation and in both keypad and non-keypad models.
While positioned as the entry-level to Kenwood DMR, the radios offer features and functionality you would usually find only in much higher priced models including automatic Digital / Analogue mixed-mode operation, industry-renowned KENWOOD audio quality, advanced worker safety features and performance in a budget-friendly price point.
NX-1000 Series radios are also compatible with Kenwood’s KAS-10 Software Suite which significantly increases system flexibility with a cost-effective AVL and Dispatch capability; allowing you to record conversations and monitor the status of the radios anywhere on site.

The remarkable Multi-Protocol NX-5000 and NX-3000 Series
Designed specifically for mission critical users, the NX-5000 Series hand portable walkie-talkies and mobiles offer users the ability to communicate in analogue, NXDN, DMR and P25 formats providing unsurpassed interoperability when it matters most alongside a host of user safety features. An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s NXDN (FDMA), DMR, P25 Phase 2 (TDMA) or FM Analogue – and transmits in the same mode received.
The NX-3000 Series takes many of the advanced features and capabilities of the mission critical NX-5000 Series to business and commercial users in a cost-effective, multi-protocol radio in either DMR plus FM Analogue or NEXEDGE NXDN plus FM Analogue configurations; which makes the NX-3000 Series an ideal solution for those migrating from analogue to digital as users can switch to and from DMR + FM Analogue or NXDN + FM Analogue operation at any time as their needs evolve or change over time.
