Simoco has announced the launch of its Simoco Xd range of mobile radio products based on the international DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) standard. It provides a complete end-to-end DMR system including base station/ repeater, mobiles and portables as well as integrated IP dispatching.
The Simoco Xd range offers DMR Tier II (conventional radio) with a software upgrade option to the DMR Tier III (trunked radio) standard.
Simoco Xd offers all the benefits of the ETSI digital radio standard such as increased capacity, interoperability with other DMR vendors, improved audio in high noise environments, all combined with IP connectivity.
Uniquely Simoco Xd base station/ repeater networks can be connected over an IP backbone without the need for additional control or switching equipment and the entire system, including terminals can be software upgraded to Tier III.
The benefits of this includes reduced cost and complexity of deployment, ease of maintenance and greater flexibility to meet demanding business needs, plus seamless integration of network management, dispatching, SIP telephony and third party voice and data applications across a wide area network.
The Simoco Xd range offers further benefits with high quality, robust audio and the latest advances in intelligent Man Down and GPS tracking, making Simoco Xd ideal for mission critical and hostile environments, according to the company.
Simoco CEO Ian Carr commented: ‘Simoco Xd builds on our success in IP based infrastructure which is proven with our Xfin range of solutions deployed in some of the largest of modern trunked networks across the globe. With a complete digital solution, we can now offer the same no-compromise approach to reliability, scalability, ease of deployment and reduced lifetime operating costs for customers demanding reliable, instant communications, for mobile workers; with ease of deployment and flexible options for migrating to a digital network.’
The launch coincides with Simoco Group’s strategic expansion of its brand, which sees UK based Team Simoco renamed to become Simoco EMEA, reflecting its customer presence across the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions. The Australian distribution and services business; ComGroup, will undergo a rename and become Simoco Australasia.
Together with the already established Simoco Americas business, these changes align the Simoco brand across all of the Simoco Group companies. The brand is supported with the launch of the new Simoco global website, which provides more detailed product information and support from one global platform structured to deliver regionally specific content to clients and partners.
