Corporate & Financial

Corporate & financial institutions are often based in tall & complex buildings, with various teams employed to keep them running smoothly. Clear, reliable communication is key to the 24/7 operation of such establishments.


Large, high profile buildings need large teams of maintenance, security and cleaning staff to keep them operating. Having to close or evacuate a site due to maintenance or safety issues would have a large impact on the country’s economy, and reliable communications is the key to ensure building management teams keep working.

Take a moment and consider the consequences of a fire threatening a tall office building occupied by thousands of staff in the financial sector of the city; or a museum or library where priceless publications and artefacts reside. These incidents could potentially be very serious and life-threatening. Such incidents are rare, but do happen. They often result in mains power failure due to fire or lightning strike, creating serious communication problems. Furthermore, this can hinder coordination of an evacuation, crisis management of the situation, not to mention potential loss of life. Subsequent loss of business continuity, following this crisis, can result in £M’s of damage and disrupted business.

Resilient radio communications can play a vital role ensuring immediate confirmation of an alarm status before real disaster recovery and evacuation plans are executed and effectively coordinated. However, challenges arise and failings occur during these crisis situations, especially when power is cut.

Consider the following:

Consider the following:

•   Does the radio system die along with AC power or soon after due to inadequate battery backup?
•   Do you experience radio coverage black spots? This may be due to ineffective antenna design or implementation
•   Is lack of handset functionality contributing to a lack of efficiency amongst your teams
•   Is there limited call capability because of insufficient call capacity or no call prioritisation especially when the system is experiencing a high volume of traffic?
•   o you regularly find yourself returning your old or outdated handsets back to your dealer for expensive repairs, which costs money and affects productivity?
•   Did limited knowledge during the procurement process, cost cutting, resulting in a poorly designed system and the use of non-suitably qualified and experienced Personnel lead to these failings?

If you find yourself answering ‘yes’ to any of the above statements, then an Endurance Technology® solution from Roadphone NRB could be what your organisation needs! Contact us today for more information or to book a demonstration.

Licencing

Placeholder Picture

Two-way radios can be broken down into two main areas - Licensed Radio & Unlicensed PMR446 Radio . Both of these types of radio operate in essentially the same way, but the output power of the radios, coverage area and number of other users on the channel varies.

So, what’s the difference between Licensed and Unlicensed? Unlicensed radios operate on PMR446 frequencies, and are limited by law to 0.5W of output power, that’s only 1/10th of the output of a licenced handheld radio. This limits the range of the radios, which, like any other radio, can vary greatly depending on the terrain and number of buildings in the area. License-free frequencies are common across most of Europe, which makes them ideal for use in both the UK and when oversees.

Licensed radios have a maximum output power of 5W for handportables, and 25W for vehicle mobile units. The increased power helps with increasing coverage, and as licensed spectrum is controlled by the local licensing authority (OFCOM in the UK), the chances of encountering other users or interference on your frequency are reduced. You need to pay for licensed frequencies, and the cost varies depending on what your requirements are, how congested the spectrum is, and where you are located. Contact us, and we’ll advise you on the best approach to take.

Frequency (UHF & VHF)

UHF (ultra-high frequency) and VHF (very high frequency) are both bands of frequency spectrum which can be used to make two-way radios communicate. Your decision will depend on a variety of factors; what frequency spectrum is available, have you got existing radios you’d like to integrate with, and which option will provide the best coverage and performance for your needs.

Most of the leading radios from Motorola Solutions and Hytera are available in both UHF and VHF, and your trusted advisor at Roadphone NRB will advise you on what’s best for you.
