Benefits Of Using Two Way Radios

Two way radios continue to represent the communication lifeline for millions of mobile workers today. From manufacturing plants to transportation companies, from municipalities to school campuses, two-way radios embody and characterize the rigorous reliability, durability, and availability expectations prevalent in a broad range of environments. Requirements for business-critical mobile communications devices include the following:

Cost of ownership

Without monthly service fees, two-way radios offer a significantly lower total cost of ownership when compared directly to smartphones and other cellular connected devices, which carry monthly service fees.

Enhanced worker safety

For scenarios where worker safety is critical, the always-on capabilities of two-way radios are invaluable, especially during emergencies. According to research, 65% of enterprise respondents view the ability to protect workers with safety features as a critical requirement when selecting communications systems for mobile workers.

Battery Life and Management

A major requirement for business-critical communication solutions is a strong all-shift battery performance without significant design implications. The desired target is between 10 to 12 hours continuous operation. According to research, 65% of enterprise mobile users today indicate that their cell phone batteries “ frequently ” or “ occasionally ” do not last the full shift. Two - way radios can continue to function well into the second shift.

Durability and reliability

Based on their design and portable use cases , the risks of damaging a consumer mobile device are great, increasing the premium for durability. Annual failure rates of consumer mobile devices supporting target applications was recently measured by Research at 18 - 20 %, substantially higher than the 4 - 8 % of rugged two - way radios . Consequences of consumer mobile device failure, especially for highly optimized mobile applications and workflows , include a significant disruption to workflows and lost productivity a s well as the negative impact on customer service and employee safety.

Audio quality

The level of ambient noise – especially in environments like manufacturing plants – can render many mobile communications devices ineffective. More than six in ten organizations state the need to “hear clearly in noisy environments” as an important communication system feature. Voice quality on two - way digital radios is further enhanced by sophisticated software algorithms and background noise suppression which ensures that clear voice is delivered in even the most extreme scenarios.

Support of specialized mobile workflows

Safety capabilities of two - way radios addressing lone worker and man - down situations for field workers represent a critical lifeline for these individuals.

Group communications

With the need to improve employee collaboration and significantly accelerate resolution time, a key benefit of two - way radios is the “one to o many” group communication function and the ability to instantly connect people. According to research, more than seven in ten organizations identify this capability as a critical communication system requirement.

Value adding features and functionality

Many modern two - way digital radios offer addition integrated features such as GPS and text messaging . In addition, other innovative workplace applications , such as location tracking and providing instant notifications when assets malfunction, are adding to the overall value proposition of two - way radios.

Enterprise - class accessory ecosystem

Providing a variety of accessories – from mounting brackets to hands - free data collection solutions and carrying cases, two - way radios offer a broad accessory portfolio closely aligned with enterprise use cases and target applications.
