Where you have a mobile fire and rescue or forestry team in remote rural areas, carrying out dangerous work you cannot afford to compromise on safety. You need mission critical radio to be able to communicate within the team and back to the command and control centre and, most likely, you are out of range of fixed radio networks and certainly without access to cellular networks.
You may have a mix of analogue and digital P25 radios, especially so where you have teams from different areas. What’s more, the team’s deployment may be temporary; to deal with a natural disaster, a forest fire, logging activities, mining or civil engineering projects.
To respond to these challenges Simoco developed the next generation MORF (Mobile Off-Road Radio Facility), the world’s first trailer-based radio network to integrate analogue and digital P25 with cellular LTE to enable IP connectivity back to a fixed land mobile radio (LMR) network without any audio degradation irrespective of the number of hops involved when daisy chaining the equipment.
