Two Way Radio System

A two way radio system is a combination of more than one device to create a communications system. An example would be the use of digital two way radios and a digital repeater(s) connected to a dispatch console. Another example could simple be the use of two way radios and a repeater base only. Both constitute a two way radio system and can be applied to many industry uses.

Many two way radio manufacturers produce their own products to fulfil a two way radio system, such as two way radios, repeaters bases, accessories and dispatch console software. There are also two way radio software specialists which only provide the software, designed to work with a single of multiple two way radio manufacturers. Usually these software companies become a partner of a manufacturer program and develop the software in conjunction with them. Of course non of these radios, systems and applications would be any good without suppliers provide great radio services.

Motorola (Motorola Solutions) is the leading communications specialist in the field of two way radio communications. For a number of years Motorola has dominated the industry and Google search results tend to show that 80% of search traffic for two way radios is for Motorola products.

Is Motorola Solutions The Best?

A question like that is always subjective. However a regular quote from company buyers when presented with comparable products from other manufacturers was 'you never get sacked buying Motorola'. So while there are other manufacturer products that can do the same tasks, many felt that Motorola products and the support given were often more reliable and a safer 'bet' than choosing a a different manufacturers products.
