Two way radio products from six Chinese manufacturers have undergone an interoperability test session conducted by the dPMR Association on 24 October 2012 at the Millennium Hotel, Wuxi, China.
The six companies successfully completed the tests conducted by Derek Love, Head of the Technical Working Group of the dPMR Association. The tests confirmed that all products met ETSI Standards TS 102 490 Modes 1 and 2.
Association chairman Pete Hizzey commented: ‘We are delighted to be able to launch dPMR into the general marketplace. This follows huge efforts in specification drafting, R & D, commitment from various manufacturers and now these successful interoperability tests.
‘With eight manufacturers already achieving interoperability, we can say with absolute certainty that dPMR is a full multi-vendor digital technology, which gives PMR users the reassurance of performance and value so that they can buy with complete confidence.’
The six new companies who join Icom Inc as certified manufacturers are:
