Modern communication solutions

Police organizations need modern communication and collaboration solutions that meet their critical needs.

Communicating via radios is critical, but the contrast between the professional radio and the smart devices of today has led to more and more people using both for work.

Two devices instead of just the professional radio.

Two devices or just one?

Perhaps it is good to carry both a radio and a smartphone. After all, one can almost be a backup for the other. But what are the drawbacks?

  • You have to keep two devices charged
  • Two devices weigh more than one
  • How to move information from the radio to the smartphone and back?

So - two devices are not better than one. This blog post explains why. What is the right number of devices to carry?

Using Tactilon Dabat in a hybrid network can give you a special benefit. Use the Hybrid Roaming solution and you will be able to communicate as long as there is either TETRA or LTE network service available.

How to avoid carrying two devices

How to avoid carrying two devices then? The answer is: choose a dual-mode device. Tactilon Dabat is a smartphone and TETRA radio in one.
