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.
