Two-Way Radio, Point-To-Point Communication, and Point-To-Multipoint Communication

Radio is the reception and transmission of electromagnetic waves of frequency, especially the ones that carry sound messages. Radios make it possible for us to stay connected to the information we need every moment of the day. The benefit of radio communication is the ability to quickly and reliably communicate to many people with a simple push of a button.

At CommTech, we offer our clients a variety of radio services and products that are designed to integrate the most effective technologies into their operations. CommTech is a turnkey solutions provider. We work with clients from the consultation and design of their communication systems to the implementation and training that the systems require.

Two-way radio

Two-way radio has been around for a long time, and most people are familiar with this communication device. The ability to push a button and have an instant, reliable communication channel between one or many people or places made two-way radio popular. That technology has not changed much over time, but the equipment has. This equipment includes two-ways that are sending data as well (GPS, text messages, and telemetry).

One big change that has taken the industry by storm has been the migration of two-way radio from analog to digital. Just like HDTV and cellular LTE, digital two-way technology has more capacity and clarity compared to the tried and true analog technology.

Whether you are operating a delivery service or responding to emergencies, you rely on the flow of information to get the job done. In addition to everyday dispatch, these necessary moments include natural disasters, accidents, and emergencies when public communication systems get overloaded or service is interrupted.

At CommTech, we offer high-quality two-way radios and related communications products. Some of the most popular two-way radios we offer come from Motorola. The XPR 3000 Series is a tool belt portable radio that offers industry-leading audio sound. Strong and durable, this two-way radio’s 4.5 watt lithium ion battery is capable of operating for 11.5 hours in digital mode on both UHF and VHF bands.

Another Motorola radio we offer is the digital CP200D. This model offers 40 percent more battery life than comparable choices and has developed a strong reputation for operating without difficulty in the most challenging conditions. Both two-way radio options are popular for schools, farms, construction sites, and within the kits of emergency responders, because they operate within the regular bands. These two-way radios also operate within the public safety bands at 200 MHz, 700 MHz, and 800 MHz.

The modern office has evolved, and more employees are working off-site to get the job done. Regardless of their location, Tri-State push-to-talk (PTT) can give your operation the coverage and flexibility it needs to communicate effectively. The state-of-the-art digital system allows users to communicate on multiple sites and devices so everyone can stay connected and communicate like never before. By using Tri-State PTT, customers don’t have all the expenses of licensing, designing, maintaining, and updating their own communication system.

Many of our two-way radio products feature the latest security encryption technologies, GPS, NXDN, Wi-Fi, text messaging, and a vast range of calling options, including conference calling. These features make it easy to communicate and transmit data over a wide area with others on a team using mobile phones, computers, laptops, and other devices.

Versatility in two-way radios gives our clients total communication reliability, without the need to switch back and forth between multiple devices.

Our radio devices also feature reliable battery operation and power management. After all, a good communication device is only as good as the battery it carries.

Point-to-point communication

Point-to-point communication is the link between two points using dedicated radios at each end of the link to send data between. Some links are hundreds of miles long; some can be across the parking lot. Examples of point-to-point communication include microwave links, which are used to connect tower sites. Point-to-point can use unlicensed spread spectrum frequencies or frequencies licensed to individual companies. These links are commonly referred to as “backhaul” or “backbone” and are usually capable of much more data and speed than point-to-multipoint or internet service.

Point-to-point links are cost-effective solutions used to replace T1 lines and high-speed internet connections that can cost hundreds of dollars monthly or have low throughput. These links are also much more reliable than internet service providers (ISP) or phone companies. Since the equipment is typically owned and managed by the owner, it greatly increases security.

At CommTech, we carry devices capable of spread spectrum wireless communication. Coupled with devices that use unlicensed microwaves, we have our clients covered on medium- to long-distance networking at low to moderate speeds. We also have tools that allow licensed microwave communication on all speeds for medium- to long-distance networking.

Point-to-multipoint communication

Point-to-multipoint features multiple sites sending data to one central location. An example, in the most basic form, is Wi-Fi. Other examples include SCADA systems and wireless internet providers (WISPs).

Typically, point-to-multipoint systems are at the ends of long point-to-point links and are used to collect data that is sent back to a centralized location. These systems usually use lower speeds and unlicensed frequencies.

Companies use point-to-multipoint communication to control or monitor remote equipment. This type of communication technology can also be used for security processes, such as streaming video or event logging. Point-to-multipoint is much less expensive than having lots of internet connection or cellular data devices.

At CommTech, we offer various options for point-to-multipoint communication. Increase reliability and privacy with this type of communication and contact us today for more information.
