New digital radio geared for specific needs and terrain of Sub Saharan Africa
Motorola Solutions launches a new two-way radio device specially designed for small and medium businesses in Sub Saharan Africa.
As demand for digital radio communication rises, Mototrbo DP540 is the perfect tool for users in need of an entry-level digital radio, offering ease of use and powerful digital-enabled features.
The new device, available through certified Motorola Solutions resellers in Sub-Saharan Africa, is based on the ETSI Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Standard, proven worldwide in affordable digital systems with low complexity.
“In today’s economy, small and medium businesses are constantly under pressure to deliver more, and deliver fast, all while keeping a conscious mind on reducing costs,” said Laurent Tribout, director of Motorola Solutions indirect sales for Sub-Saharan Africa. “With this in mind, we’ve developed a communication solution that holds all the necessary features in one affordable device”.
The Mototrbo DP540 can operate on both digital and analogue modes. In this way, radio users can operate and communicate on the radios while on the job, as the business transitions to digital technology.
The compact, ruggedly-engineered device is built to withstand harsh conditions and resist corrosion even in the saltiest environments such as seaports and harbours.
It features voice announcement customization, allowing users to customize the default voice announcement languages using their own audio files.
It is also built for multi-language working environments, with special audio profiles designed to deliver enhanced audio quality when speaking languages with distinct rolled “R”s such as French or Afrikaans.
The new DP540 model is equipped with a Voice-activated Transmit feature, which allows users to operate their radio without the need to press the Push-To-Talk button.
Along with compatible earpieces designed for hands free operation, healthcare workers and other essential workers can keep their hands clean and unhindered.
