In today’s fast-paced world, seamless communication is crucial for businesses and public safety organisations alike. Simoco Wireless Solutions, a leading provider of mission-critical communication systems, has emerged as a trusted name in the Australasia market. With our innovative approach and cutting-edge technology, Simoco has revolutionised wireless communication across various industries. In this blog post, we will explore the key features and benefits of Simoco Wireless Solutions in Australia.
The Australian International Aerospace and Defence Exposition and Air Show
The Australian International Aerospace and Defence Exposition and Air Show is held every two years at Avalon Airport in Melbourne, Victoria, and is the largest civil and military air show in the Australian calendar, with over 250,000 attendees. The air show has grown rapidly over recent years and now features a strong international military presence including aircraft from the Royal Australian Air Force, the United States Marine Corps, and the United States Air Force. Representatives from other countries have also appeared at the air show on many occasions, including aircraft from the Royal Air Force, Japan Air Self-Defence Force, Republic of Singapore Air Force, and many others.
Over the years certain rules have been established to make radio communication go more efficiently. Here are the basic protocols for radio use, this will help you understand and improve your overall experience when using your two-way radio.
Simoco Launches DMR Coverage Extender to solve the issue of black spots and signal loss in harsh environments and fringe areas
Every day, organisations around the world face a constantly evolving challenge of maintaining reliable and clear communications. Whether it’s at the top of a mountain, deep in a mine shaft, carrying out maintenance duties down a manhole or precise work on pylon cables, the need to remain in communication with your team is always critical. However, it is these extreme, remote or harsh environments that often prove to be the most difficult when it comes to upholding a communications network – most often due to poor signal. With this in mind, Simoco has developed the DMR Coverage Extender (DCE) to ensure organisations never find themselves disconnected.
Regular cleaning of your professional mobile radio equipment and accessories during the COVID-19 pandemic
A number of our customers have been asking us about the recommended guidance of cleaning our radios and accessories during the corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak. It is not fully known how long the corona virus lasts on surfaces but recent tests carried out by scientists show it can survive for a minimum of 72 hours, this study was originally published in the preprint database medRxiv on March 11. A revised version was published March 17 in The New England Journal of Medicine. There are some reports of the virus which can survive on plastic or metal surfaces for up to 9 days.
The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) era has opened up to enormous capabilities for traditional radio communication networks to converge with rich data applications and digital communication channels such as email to be seamlessly integrated with traditional voice.
What is the IoT?
The Internet of things is a huge and rapidly growing ecosystem resulting from the embedding of IP connectivity in ordinary devices or “things”. These devices can communicate and interact with others over the Internet, and can be remotely monitored and controlled. The broad aim is to capture previously untapped data from across this infrastructure and to turn this data into tangible insights and actions, some of which may be automated in nature.
The SDP660 Advanced DMR Portable radio has continued to evolve as an enhanced DMR radio which boasts a rich feature set and improved durability with modifications made to the antenna, PTT, battery and keypad. The radio works on numerous modes such as DMR Tier II conventional and DMR Tier III trunked as well as conventional analogue mode which allows customers to migrate their analogue radio systems to digital.
The advanced DMR portable radio has new exciting features that now come as standard. Some of these features include: MPT1327 which allows for terminal led migration, OTAP to allow remote fleet management, AES256 encryption for protection against eavesdropping and Full Duplex to allow more natural flowing conversations.
Implementing a critical communications network often has issues and challenges that need overcoming. Implementing one in an environment that is particularly hostile to radio coverage is further challenging as it can present coverage blackspots for radio communication. For instance, typical operations could involve groups of people communicating in particularly narrow gorges, shallow caves or relatively small buildings.
A Simoco 600 / 700 series DMR radio terminal (mobile or portable) with the Single Frequency Repeater (SFR) feature enabled will repeat on slot 2 traffic received on slot 1. The DMR radio terminal essentially serves as a single frequency DMO repeater.
Many new radio communication systems require a significant upfront investment, which means it may take several years to generate a return on investment. Simoco Xd does not require large amounts of physical infrastructure to be installed, rather, it scales up through IP. Expanding the network simply involves installing new base stations all connected via the IP infrastructure.
Simoco have gone further than anyone else in maximising DMR’s unique capabilities, developing a standards-compliant system built on a fully distributed architecture. Our Simoco Xd DMR solution is more scalable, flexible, resilient and cost-effective than alternative DMR offerings.
Visibility is a key challenge for every organisation. Understanding what is going on within the business – particularly as it grow and changes – is critical in order to retain control of that business, and ensure it grows in the right way.
Yet visibility means a multitude of different things. It can mean understanding what different staff members are working on at different times. It can mean keeping track of which products and services are selling better than others. And, in the case of organisations incorporating a fleet of vehicles, it can mean knowing where each of those vehicles are located, where they are travelling to, and where they need to go next.
