So to carry on my run of posts on this blog, I’ve planned to share one of my favourite content pieces this week. I used to be hesitant to add it to a blog as I really didn’t want to offend the original author, but I trust he/she is glad that I enjoyed reading their work and wanted to share it with my readers.
With the ever present threats from civil unrest, active protest, terrorism and natural and man-made disasters, public safety agencies around the world are stretched to their limits in resourcing to manage situations in ways that will protect the public from injury or harm.
When disaster strikes, police, fire, ambulance, medical, and other services need to be able to work together in harness and communicate with each other to coordinate efforts.
It is of course mission critical that a reliable two-way radio service is available 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 delay or drop-out in communications could have catastrophic consequences.
Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® digital solutions are designed to provide secure, fail-safe radio communications systems in public safety applications. Infinitely scalable, multi-channel trunked networks using wireless microwave or IP connectivity (as the primary or back-up method) ensures reliable service even when wired communications lines are rendered inoperable by adverse environmental conditions.
Among its many benefits, NEXEDGE® Digital Two-Way walkie-talkies and in-vehicle units additionally feature an Analogue/Digital Mixed Mode which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios whatever the make; providing a straightforward and economical way to use existing radios while migrating to the benefits of digital without compromising service quality and reliability.
