Interoperability is vital to many organizations and is often mentioned as one of the key reasons to go with one product or solutions over another. However, this term can be quite ambiguous as the range of interoperability can vary significantly.
At Omnitronics, we strive to give organizations complete interoperability and flexibility. This takes a number of forms:
1. Interoperability between Frequency Bands
Often organizations require multiple frequency bands to manage their communications. Take the example of an Oil Rig. They may require marine band to talk to passing ships, air band for helicopters and uhf or vhf for personnel on the platform itself. Ideally all of these parties should be able to communicate with each other quickly and easily. By adding Audio Bridges to your network, this is made possible.
2. Interoperabilty with Phones
3. Interoperability across Protocols
The situation may also arise where your organization needs to communication across multiple protocols (e.g. DMR and P25) or you need to access other organizations networks that are running on a different protocol. By using a radio management system that is capable of connecting to multiple protocols at any one time, you can be confident that you will not be locked into a radio technology that becomes outdated or that you can’t implement additional technology that better meets changing needs.
Furthermore, this allows organizations to phase upgrades from analog to digital over a period of time.
