Digital Two Way Radio For Business
The widespread adoption of Kaizen principles, Kanban systems, lean processes and just-in-time practices have helped leading manufacturers to maintain a competitive edge in volatile trading conditions.
But there is another characteristic which defines modern manufacturing, and that's the free-flow of communications between production units, component stores, QC, engineering and materials handling to ensure a smooth efficient flow through the production stages.
However, a modern factory is a difficult operating environment for two-way radio communications with noise from machinery and mechanical handling equipment, large areas to cover and the risk of accidental damage presenting real challenges.
As a global manufacturer of consumer and professional electronics products, we are more than aware of the need for reliable, instant, communications throughout our production centres, and that's why we have designed our NEXEDGE® digital hand-portable walkie talkie radios and trunked digital systems and networks to provide outstanding voice and data performance in the most challenging environments and to be both be easy to use, reliable and durable in service.
