MPT1327 and DMR Tier III Support
SmartBridge Dispatcher supports MPT1327 and DMR TierIII and Tait radio’s from older T20xx to the latest TM9300.
The application functionality now automatically re-configures based on the network type and protocol stack. This means you can start using SmartBridge Dispatcher with an older T20xx (or TM82xx) and as migration to DMR TierIII continues the user interface (and training investment) doesn’t change, only the RF bodyÂ changes.
This RF control functionality now extends to allowing a touch screen interface to change the RF body from MPT to DMR, or between MPT networks.
SmartBridge Dispatcher provides a significant step forward in cost, simplicity, productivity improvements and ease of implementing a comprehensive dispatcher solution for small to medium fleets, and as a field enhancement to much larger and more expensive dispatch console options.
With extensive experience in radio this release signals the start of a significant evolution in radio usability and integration with the enterprise beyond just voice comms.
Full contact details are available on the FreshRF website. SmartBridge Dispatcher can be downloaded from the playstore.
* SmartBridge Dispatcher is for use in conjunction with the SmartBridge suite of tools for radio operations and related licences.
