Our Radio Engineers have recently completed a 2-Way Radio upgrade in South East London for a renowned Water Utilities company!

The customer required improvement of their two-way radio coverage and was also seeking to upgrade from analogue to a Digital Two-Way Radio System.

Business Comms recommended the installation of a Repeater Base Station with Off-Set Omni Directional Antenna to provide the site wide coverage of up to 3 km radius.

Our engineering team had to take the following into account in order to meet the Customer’s expectations:

  • Extend Radio Transmit and Receive Range with Buildings and Open Areas
  • What was limiting radio signal penetrations and how to improve this (Site Location & Terrain)
  • Antenna Efficiency – what height and type was required
  • ATEX Radios and standard Digital Radios for both hazardous and safe working environments

Motorola DR3000 Base StationA site survey is always recommended before any project work is commenced as it gives both the ‘customer’ and ‘Business Communications’ an opportunity to review all aspects of the installation environment and equipment options suitable.

After the survey, Business Communications’ team of in-house Two-Way Radio Engineers will design bespoke solutions specific for your business needs.

In this case, the Motorola DR3000 was installed in order improve site wide coverage including external antennas fixed in agreed locations, ca. 20 metres from ground level to provide a suitable radiating pattern across the site to achieve coverage.

Because, our Water Utilities customer was upgrading to Digital Radios, we recommended and supplied them with MOTOTRBO DP4400 digital two-way radios and also DP4000 EX ATEX (perfect for hazardous) as they are suitable for the customer’s Water Utilities workplace.
