Icom Digital Two Way Radio Can Provide an Asset to Schools, Colleges and Universities.

Schools, colleges and universities have come to rely on two way radios as a tool to provide operational efficiencies and to maintain safety and security. They are frequently used by teachers, cleaners, maintenance and administration staff to remain in contact around a campus. In recent years, however, radios are becoming even more critical as a tool to respond to Health & Safety and security concerns.

The continued expansion of radio systems throughout the UK has led to many analogue systems suffering interference and poor coverage. Existing analogue equipment may be stretched beyond their original design capability and result in less than ideal reception conditions. That’s where digital comes in…

Icom digital two way radios, called IDAS, are incredibly spectrum efficient allowing twice the amount of users on a radio system than comparable technologies. IDAS digital radios feature outstanding audio and superb noise cancelling properties providing clear crisp sound around all parts of a campus. Also because of the way that they digitally transmit, it is possible that parts of a school, college or university with a blind spot may now 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 a school or a Local Education Authority 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 as well as easing the transition time as well.
