Comprehensive Two Way Digital Radio Solutions for Ports & Harbours

Clear, reliable voice and data communication between port management and their many teams plays a pivotal role in delivering operational efficiency and improved safety and security. This can be especially difficult when this has to be done across large areas with containers and mechanical handling equipment interfering with radio signals.

Icom radios are used at ports across the globe. The new series of Icom digital two way radios, called IDAS are very spectrum efficient allowing twice the amount of users on a radio system compared to other technologies. IDAS digital radios feature outstanding audio and superb noise cancelling properties providing clear crisp sound around all areas of a port. Also, because of the way that they digitally transmit, it is possible that parts of a site that previously had a blind spot could be covered.

Another benefit of Icom’s digital system is that it is capable of digital/analogue mixed mode operation. This means that they can receive both analogue and digital modes on a single channel. Mixed mode operation is a real benefit for port authorities as there is not the need to buy a complete radio system outright, an important consideration in the current economic climate. This can help in budgeting the transition from an older analogue system to a digital one.

There are a variety of IDAS digital systems available, from simple back to back digital radio systems featuring handportable radios to more sophisticated single site trunking system allowing contractors or security staff to communicate within their own groups and cross communicate with extended management team.

Icom also have a comprehensive range of commercial maritme and onboard solutions to back this up. Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK said, ‘The superior performance of Icom’s digital radios makes them ideal for use in Ports and Harbours. Long battery life combined with high-quality construction (including waterproofing in some instances) makes models from the Icom range perfect for daily demands of this sector. So if you are looking for a simple radio system with full reporting function to coordinate workers and services and to deliver your operations on time and budget, then Icom have a range of solutions available.
