The latest from Hytera

Mobile Phones - An Unreliable Backup 


The research suggests that mobile phones are being used as a backup solution to a radio system that’s not working to its full capability, or is in drastic need of an upgrade. However, mobile phones themselves are by no means a reliable means of critical communication.

Hytera discovered that more than half of those who claim to be supplying workers with mobiles phones could be sending people out into areas of weak or no coverage. If a worker is sent out alone into a hazardous area with a mobile phone, and coverage drops out, this immediately becomes a security risk.

Modern Digital Two-Way Radios come equipped with the latest safety features that help you protect worker safety. For instance, Lone Worker sends an alert when a radio becomes unresponsive, and Man Down can send an emergency alarm when a radio is on its side due to a user fall or incident. Many also have GPS tracking so that you can locate employees if an incident were to occur, or geo-fence them so that you know when they’ve entered an unauthorized or hazardous area.

What’s more, mobile phones are prone to breaking easily. Hytera’s two-way radios are rugged and can survive the rough and tumble of the industrial working day. What’s more, being a digital device, they offer improved coverage, capacity, clarity and battery life.
