Why should I buy a digital radio system?

Every day at Radio-Active, we are asked the question: ‘Why should I buy a digital radio system?’

For years there wasn’t a valid answer to this question, however today we can barely find a reason to not switch to digital.

The first thing to understand about a digital radio system is that the countless benefits come at a cost. If you are looking for a simple, cost effective and efficient form of two way communications, a traditional analogue radio system is more than adequate. However when looking to build a bespoke system, tailored to your organization, a digital two way radio system is second to none.

We like to explain and demonstrate the benefits of a digital radio system without confusing and baffling our customers. Below we have highlighted what we think are some of the key advantages of a digital two way radio system.

1. Speech/audio quality – What we have found with digital radio audio is that it is all or nothing. Where an analogue signal will start to fade, a digital radio signal will remain strong right until it runs out of range. We must also point out that digital radio speech is different to that of analogue so when switching to digital, it sometimes take a little getting used to.

2. Channel security/privacy – Digital radio signals are incredibly secure. We have installed systems in high security factories and establishments, where eavesdropping cannot be a possibility. This cannot be matched by an analogue radio system.

3. Expandable features – A digital radio system can be altered, added to, modified, all at the click of a button. With GPS trackable handheld and mobile radios, lone worker functions, private calling, text messaging, remote switching, monitoring, IP connectivity and much more. A digital radio system can be programmed to do almost anything. Please note, a digital radio system will not have these features set up or installed out of the box. Our team can design, supply, install and guide you with a completely bespoke system that does exactly what you want it to.

4. Private/direct calling –  Each radio in a digital system has it’s own unique ID. Instead of calling everyone on a particular channel, you can use the intelligent display on your radio to select who specifically you want to talk to. This feature is perfect for managers to converse without their whole workforce listening in. This features extends to text messaging and remote monitoring.

5. Analogue/Digital Modes – The majority of new digital radios, both handhelds and mobiles, can be programmed to function on either analogue or digital frequencies. This is an excellent feature for our clients who want to make a gradual swap over to digital. They can purchase new digital radios which will talk to their existing analogue equipment, and eventually make the switch over to full digital once they have replaced all of their old equipment.

6. Improved battery life – Digital two way radios come with more intelligent battery technology, giving longer battery life and life span of a battery through intelligent charging.

7. Text messaging – Radios with keypads can now be programmed to send text messages to individuals or groups with radios equipped with displays (to display the message). You can write a free-form text message with the keypad, or more basic models can be programmed to send a pre-stored text message from one of their programmable buttons on the radio. This is a great safety feature, allowing users with basic radios to send emergency messages to managers with the push of a button.

8. IP connectivity –  The final icing on the cake for a digital two way radio system, IP connectivity. This means that your system can be connected to the internet and essentially, two systems on opposite sides of the earth can talk to each other in real time. (R0IP Radio over internet protocol).

9. Expandability –  Once you have your digital radio system, we can help you constantly expand upon it. If you want to add radios to it, no problem. We can programme them with unique IDs to slot seamlessly into your working system. Want to lock users from using certain features? No problem. To follow on from the previous point, if your system is IP connected, we can do almost all of this from our own base, cutting costs on call outs for adjustments and alterations to your system.

To conclude, an analogue system can not offer a fraction of these features. They come at a cost, as a digital system is considerably more expensive than an analogue system, however you cannot even propose a like for like system between the two, as digital offers features and benefits that do not exist in an analogue system.

On the other hand, analogue radios are by no means obsolete. As they always have been, analogue two way radios provide an easy to use, cost effective and incredibly efficient form of two way communications. For the mass majority of applications, analogue equipment is and will continue to be more than sufficient. Mobile phones can not be trusted for the smooth running of large factories.
