        Whether you work on a construction site, in a manufacturing facility, or a warehouse, you need to communicate critical information. And you need to do it safely.  If a maintenance worker on your team needs to access supplies, but requires a ladder to reach them, how does he navigate without his equipment getting in the way? With a radio on his hip, and remote speaker microphone tethered to it, moving around without restrictions can be a challenge.

        Imagine if you could still communicate critical information during everyday tasks while keeping safety top of mind. With the Wireless Remote Speaker Microphone (RSM), you can walk away from your radio up to 10 meters, allowing you to take your radio off the belt when it gets in the way of your job. This is especially helpful when you are working in tight places, fixing machinery, or operating a manufacturing line.

        With the Wireless RSM, you can maneuver in tight spaces with ease, handle machines and equipment without worry, and operate forklifts without a bulky radio getting in the way.  Simply connect your Wireless RSM to your MOTOTRBO™ XPR 7000 Series Radio and you are ready for your busy workday.

        If an accident were to happen, you can instantly call for help with a simple push of the emergency button, located on the Wireless RSM. Confidently transmit every word without being truncated thanks to our unique push-to-talk protocol and low latency.

        You face challenges on a daily basis, but communication shouldn’t be one of them. That is why we designed each button and function with your daily operations in mind. The emergency and push-to-talk buttons are large, but recessed, so you can push it while wearing gloves but accidental activation shouldn’t be an issue. Even in dark places, this remote speaker microphone won’t let you down. With its task light, you are able to read important information even while working in a dark hallway or basement.

        Work safer and smarter with the Motorola Solutions Wireless Remote Speaker Microphone for MOTOTRBOTM XPR 7000 Series Radios.

      • 3 Surprising Misconceptions About Migrating from Analog to Digital Two-Way Radio

        Two-way, push-to-talk radios have been in use for decades. They are synonymous with reliability, durability and security.

        Thanks to technology advances, today, two-way radios are making a huge leap forward – the move from analog to digital. Digital radios offer all the features of analog and more, yet there are still misperceptions out there about making the move.

        Let’s break them down and offer some reasons why making the switch makes business sense on many levels.

        Making the Switch is Costly

        Cost is often one of the biggest concerns for any business contemplating a move to digital. But cost isn’t the issue you might think it is. In fact, using a digital two-way radio system like MOTOTRBO™ is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce your expenses, while getting more features.

        Digital radios can also reduce your bandwidth imprint and costs. With digital, you can immediately double the capacity of your existing 12.5 kHz channel  – greatly minimizing license costs and increasing the flexibility of your currently licensed spectrum.

        Going forward, you’ll realize more predictable capital and operating expenses thanks to the greater visibility into usage patterns that digital provides, so you can manage your infrastructure more efficiently.

        Two-Way Radios are a Fading Technology

        With the advent of smartphones, are two-way radios a fading technology?

        While smartphones combine the best features of many of the devices and applications that we use each day, they aren’t always the best tool on the job. The enduring popularity of analog two-way radios proves this. Yet, today, the same digital technology that powers smartphones has transformed two-way radios, combining the best aspects of smartphones with the reliability and power of push-to-talk radios – in one device. For example, digital systems allow more simultaneous talking paths while being robust enough to handle location information, text messaging, Wi-Fi, dispatch messaging and telemetry.

        Digital technology also brings interoperability to two-way radios. Using WAVE™ Workgroup Communications, you can experience instant unified communications across locations, networks and devices including smartphones, landlines, and PCs.

        In addition, digital networks offer much clearer sound, with features such as background noise-cancellation and intelligent audio, that automatically adjusts volume to compensate for background noise. These, along with many other benefits, enhance team communications on the frontlines in a way that analog radios and smartphones, alone, can’t. Take advantage of a unified communication and collaboration platform that offers real-time communication with enhanced group collaboration at the push of a button.

        Transitioning to Digital is Complex

        Making the switch from a legacy system naturally raises anxiety about the impact on existing investments and processes. But moving from analog to digital is easy. If you decide to make the switch, there’s no need to rip and replace, you can make the move in stages and use your analog and digital radios simultaneously. It’s your choice whether and when you move one person, a business unit, or your entire team.

        From a low cost-of-entry to incredibly efficient cost of operation, digital two-way radios are a smart investment today, but they’re also just as smart down the road.
