MOTOTRBO Network Expands to DelMarVa Peninsula
Wide-area digital 2-way radio communications is now available for commercial business fleets in Delaware and Maryland eastern shore counties. The Mid-Atlantic Digital Radio Network covering most of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, recently added tower sites for the DelMarVa peninsula.
The system utilizes Motorola’s latest MOTOTRBO DMR digital technology that allows wide area roaming, group communications, and no need to change channels.. A business owner can now communicate with trucks anywhere within the digital footprint.
The network supports the Motorola UHF MOTOTRBO XPR 5350 and XPR 5550 mobile radios for company-wide and private call voice communications. The XPR 5000 series supports the RLN6551 long range wireless speaker-microphone that allows the driver to use his mobile radio from up to 300 feet away from the vehicle. Text messaging, GPS fleet tracking, work order management, and other options can be utilized with this radio.
Distracted driver laws put companies at risk who continue to dispatch their fleet using cell phones. Significant fines or worse can happen resulting in missed calls, voice mail messages, and decreased productivity. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ban on cell phone usage does not include mobile 2-way radios.
The Motorola XPR 7350e and 7550e hand-held portable radios are also available and can be used as your base station if you are close enough to a tower. Depending on your location and coverage requirements, these models offer the same features as the XPR 5000 series.
The MOTOTRBO digital network has been available for several years and is only new to Delaware and the DelMarVa Peninsula. Thousands of companies from coast-to-coast access MOTOTRBO networks at a low monthly fee per radio – all without having to invest in towers, repeaters, and ongoing infrastructure maintenance.
