Overcome Challenges By Integrating Plant Communications
Manufacturers face another set of challenges in this rebounding market. More companies are shifting from outsourcing overseas to “next shoring” their products closer to where they are sold to improve efficiencies. And consumers, emboldened by social media, expect instant gratification and faster delivery times.
Whether it is filling job positions or filling customer orders, manufacturers need strategies to stay competitive. According to the Motorola Nationwide Manufacturing Survey, companies are looking for an integrated communications platform to help them increase workforce productivity, improve worker safety and reduce downtime. They want plant communications to connect all workers and devices seamlessly and expedite communications between machines and people automatically.

Digital Makes Two-Way Radio Communications Better
Better Call Quality
Audio – Digital applies error correction to eliminate noise and static and preserves voice quality over a greater range so users can hear what is being said crisp and clear. Use of the AMBE+2™ vocoder further improves speech transmission quality in noisy environments while achieving spectrum efficiency.
Coverage – Digital enables users to make more calls to more places. A digital signal stays strong and clear until it reaches its maximum range. There is no deterioration in the signal, providing greater usable range in areas where two-way communication was not possible in the past.
Better Call Management
Control - A common desire amongst analog radio users is to control who receives a message and avoid broadcasting messages to a wide group of listeners. Digital makes this possible with unique IDs assigned to each radio. A user can selectively call specific individuals or groups by selecting the radio ID(s) to direct a message only to those who need the information.
Digital Radio Benefits
- Range – Intelligible speech over a longer distance.
- Quality – Crisp and clear, even in fringe coverage areas.
- Capacity – Twice the capacity of analog radio in the same channel.
- Talk-Time – Up to 40% longer battery life than analog radio.
- Features – Increased opportunity for innovation.
