The great benefit of Network Radio is providing instant One-to-One or Group Talk over any distance.
Unlike PMR networks where channel capacity is finite, Network Radio platforms allow any number of virtual channels and as many call groups as you want to be created, including the ability to create dynamic call groups. Dispatcher services can be enabled, including real-time GPS location, tracking, and monitoring services, along with other PMR type services such as late entry to group calls and remote stun or kill of devices.
Other typical PMR applications such as Lone Worker monitoring and alarms can also be provided, along with full call recording, logging, and playback. It also enables Network Radio devices to take on some of the traditional PDA roles such as workflow management, job ticketing, scanning items and proof of delivery services.
The SolidNet platform also enables you to integrate Network Radio services with existing PMR systems using gateways to provide a unified PMR/cellular network. This allows you to extend the range of your PMR network and enable those out of range of the PMR network or who do not have a PMR terminal to communicate with those that do use a PTT cellular device.
SolidNet is a unified communications network allowing two-way radio to communicate seamlessly with Network Radio devices.
We work in partnership with manufacturers of Two-Way Radios and the list of supported devices on our site is updated when we have certified new devices with our products.
With the simple connection of a cable from your Two-Way Radio gateways and a few minutes of setup, you can be communicating directly between Network Radio and DMR.
Whilst radio fleets can operate as individuals and groups without the need of the console dispatch software, the SolidNet Dispatch software and hardware solution greatly enhances the versatility and features available.
The user-friendly displays give quick visual indication of who is “On-Air”, what group they belong to and where they are. Communication to the Fleet, Sub-Group or a private call to an individual user is just a simple press of the space bar or mouse. Temporary groups can also be selected and communicated without the need to re-program the radio.
The SolidNet platform can be configured to record all voice and GPS tracking logs together. For example, the dispatcher can go back in time and listen to the voice recording of a particular radio 6 weeks prior between the hours of 2:00am and 4:00am and also check where the radio was at any particular time.
Built-in safety features like the SOS emergency alarm initiated from a radio is instantly shown on the map page with audio alarm. Geo-Fencing can be set by the dispatcher and alarms set for radios leaving the fenced perimeter. Together with the “Lone Worker” feature, where timers that can be set for individual users, the SolidNet Dispatcher contributes significantly to improvement of health & safety.
