A History of Migration

For most of its history, two-way radio communication has been rooted in analogue technologies. As far back as 1923, the first mobile two-way analogue radio was developed by Police in the state of Victoria, Australia. 

Filling the back seat of a patrol vehicle, it allowed real time updates for the first time and replaced telephone status reports made using public telephone boxes. Advances in technology may have reduced the size of radio equipment and improved the quality of communication, until recent years, analogue continued to be the dominant technology.

Precisely because of its longevity, analogue has reached its ceiling of innovation. From its introduction the technology has passed through phases of development, evolution and maturity and now has little possibility of further growth.  Almost everything that can be done has been done, regulatory pressures, combined with operating needs are continually driving professional radio users to want more from their system investments.

Enter digital technology offering greater calling capacity, enhanced audio and better like for like coverage, Digital Mobile Radio is changing the face of two way radio.
