Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) is an international open digital radio standard developed around 7 years ago by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). This standard is estimated to account for 75% of the global radio market. Most two way radio manufacturers now have DMR technology & products in their portfolios.
This technology like its big brother TETRA is also a TDMA based standard which means the radio divides the frequency into time slots. With this standard it is two slots and this has the benefit of allowing greater efficiency from infrastructure and licensing as two different radio user groups can concurrently use one frequency.
The DMR standard reduces the risk associated with the deployments of two way radio systems by providing access to a wide choice of independent vendors like 2826 to keep your digital two way radio running well into the future, irrespective of what happens to supplier arrangements.
Competition amongst manufacturers creates a dynamic market fostering innovation and makes DMR technology a safe choice for business.
DMR supports backward compatibility to analogue modes of operation, providing a migration to digital two way radio without a complete upgrade needed.
