Advantages of DMR Digital Technology

Advantages of DMR digital technology


DMR boasts many advantages and may be the best solution for you.

DMR is a type of digital technology for radios that utilizes TDMA. In utilizing TDMA, it doubles its capacity and allows a single channel to support two calls coming in simultaneously.

Here are 4 of the many advantages that come with using DMR:

Using DMR can help you make a more efficient use of your infrastructure equipment. Because DMR uses TDMA, one repeater can support two channels simultaneously. This will save you money in the long run and will give you the chance to spend less on equipment while having better audio quality. Utilizing your infrastructure to its fullest capability is ideal when spending money on any type of system.

Utilizing DMR will also give you longer battery life with your mobile devices. This is because only one of the time slots is being used when a single call comes in. Another positive of utilizing less battery life is that it is greener and more beneficial for the environment.

DMR also allows an easier implementation of data applications. Applications such as GPS tracking and text messaging are possible thanks to DMR. Having these different applications will allow you to communicate in a more efficient way and give your team better direction. These applications can take your team communications to the next level.

Compared to analog, using DMR will give you enhanced audio quality. In using DMR, you will have clearer and better audio communication, especially when you are toward the furthest points of transmission with your radios.

Allowing your team to communicate effectively through DMR digital technology can help you boost communication within your organization. 

If considering DMR, one radio to look at (depending on which industry you are in) is the Vertex Standard EVX-S24. This small and durable radio is easy to handle and lighter compared to many other radios.
