Your two-way radio communications are an essential function for the success of your organization. Without the ability to communicate with your team, you'll limit the amount of work you get done. What happens to your team's productivity when your radio communications go down? When lives depend on your radio communications, you can't sacrifice reliability.
Many organizations fail to take a proactive approach to ensuring they have reliable communications. When their radios go down, they're forced to scramble to get their radios back up. This time spent waiting and repairing is simply a waste. With the right monitoring system in place, you'll have the edge when responding to problems with your radios.
By deploying monitoring gear to monitor your radio communications, you can guarantee yourself a greater level of reliability. By monitoring forward and reflected power, you can ensure that your trunked radio system is operating optimally. If the power is too high or low, you'll be notified. This means you can address problems quickly before they're able to cause serious problems with your communications.
Your radio communications will be more reliable, meaning you and your team can communicate more effectively without prolonged outages hampering your team. The instant there's a problem transmitting or receiving, you can quickly troubleshoot and get your radios back online. You'll enjoy gains in productivity and greater satisfaction from your customers/end-users.
If you're a municipal or emergency response organization, having more reliable communications means you're better equipped to respond to emergencies. Without having to deal with a problem interfering with your radio communications, you can provide a more reliable service. In this industry, that can directly translate to saving more lives and helping more people.
This additional reliability could also help your organization achieve a better iso rating. A better rating from the ISO could lead to reduced premiums and lower insurance rates - meaning your organization will have more budget money left over for more important projects.
You can monitor your radio communications using remote telemetry units (RTUs). An RTU is a compact 1 RU box that features inputs for various alarm types. With a good RTU, you'll have discrete and analog inputs to use for your radio system monitoring. Here are the 3 essential features you must have in your RTU:
Monitoring the forward and reflected power of your radios is a serious task. You can't afford to leave your radio communications unmonitored, but you also can't risk choosing the wrong system. Many monitoring solutions leave out some of the essential features mentioned above that you can't live without.
With the right monitoring system you'll enjoy more reliable radio communications. Just think, the instant there's a problem with your radios, you'll know. On top of having more reliable communications, you'll probably end up saving yourself some money through a better ISO rating. How many more projects could you get done if you only had some extra money?
Since you're a professional, you only want the best solutions that can deliver results. I recommend you spend a few minutes to take a look at the NetGuardian 16A.
