As land based mobile radios are coming to their end of life, more and more industries are implementing the MSAT G2 due to reliability and coverage. In addition to dispatch satellite requirements, SatComs are also playing an important role in Smart Meter deployments.
A wireless push-to-talk network, Dispatch Radio Service relies on establishing "Talk Groups"-sets of users who share a common radio channel. Each communicator can support up to 15 Talk Groups. While users can belong to more than one Talk Group, each Talk Group can include as many as 10,000 members. When establishing Talk Groups, priority levels can be predetermined in order to define who will be permitted to listen and speak during each session.
Users also have the ability to dial in to a Talk Group from the PSTN or dial out from a Talk Group to the PSTN.
The network acts much the same as a radio tower, turning the entire continent into a single cell and transmitting signals to and receiving signals from subscribers on the ground. The Dispatch Radio Service can also be configured to provide extra security to your subscribers.
Dispatch Radio Service features and benefits:
Two-way group communications - one user can converse with many, improving productivity and efficiency.
Private Mode communications - allows a user to call another user privately; no other Talk Group members will be able to listen in.
One-way broadcast capability - enables one user to broadcast to many users simultaneously.
Priority 1 interrupt - in emergencies, a user can override other users within the same Talk Group. You can set a Talk Group to one of three different priority levels, which allows users to filter out conferences on low-priority Talk Groups unless that Talk Group is selected. High-priority Talk Group conferences are always heard no matter which Talk Group is selected.
Extended coverage options - integrating the service with existing trunked radio systems extends coverage.
Dispatch Radio Service can help people in numerous industries and occupations do their jobs more effectively:
Mining and construction
Oil and gas
