PCE warns radio users to switch to digital radio

PCE is warning two-way business radio users to migrate to digital solutions as manufacturers continue to phase out the production of analogue radio equipment.

The Exeter-based two-way radio experts have been informed that leading manufacture Motorola is in the final stages of cancelling production of analogue radios, with the entire process due to be complete in less than six months.

Motorola have already cancelled the manufacture of their GP320, ATEX GP340, GP344 and GP388 handsets with the GP340 model due to follow in February 2015.

Other manufacturers will no doubt follow suit leaving many businesses and public sector organisations with obsolete analogue radio equipment.

PCE’s National Account Manager Stephen Smith said: “PCE would advise business radio users to consider this as the ideal time to migrate to a digital two-way radio solution. It is not as costly or alarming as it seems and we offer a consultancy approach that will ensure your solution will guarantee best value for money.

“Our expertise means we can support clients with demanding, mission-critical, real-time communication environments while offering a solution that offers enhanced coverage, sound quality, security and battery life.”

PCE’s engineers can continue to support analogue solutions but it will be on a best endeavour basis as they will no longer be any escalation process as support from manufacturers will be withdrawn.
