Telecommunications equipment provider Motorola Solutions has launched Mototrbo DP540 a new two-way radio device specially designed for small and medium businesses looking to transition to digital technology for reliable and efficient communications in Sub Saharan Africa.

As demand for digital radio communication rises, small and medium businesses are looking for simple and affordable solutions for their communication needs without the need to compromise on quality.

Mototrbo DP540 is a tool for users in need of an entry-level digital radio, offering ease of use and powerful digital-enabled features.

The new device, available through certified resellers in Sub-Saharan Africa, is based on the ETSI Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Standard, proven worldwide in affordable digital systems with low complexity.

“In today’s economy, small and medium businesses are constantly under pressure to deliver more, and deliver fast, all while keeping a conscious mind on reducing costs,” said Laurent Tribout, director of Motorola Solutions indirect sales for Sub-Saharan Africa. “With this in mind, we’ve developed a communication solution that holds all the necessary features in one affordable device”

To avoid potential interruption to business operations,  the device can operate on both digital and analogue modes. Users can operate and communicate while on the job, as the business transitions to digital technology.

The compact, ruggedly-engineered device is built to withstand harsh conditions and resist corrosion even in the saltiest environments such as seaports and harbours. It boasts superior audio output and unique features, such as voice announcement customization, allowing users to customize the default voice announcement languages using their own audio files.

Mototrbo DP540 is also built for multi-language working environments, with special audio profiles designed to deliver enhanced audio quality when speaking languages with distinct rolled “R”s such as French or Afrikaans.

As in many mission-critical work areas, healthcare workers rely on two-way radio communication for many of their daily tasks. Whether it is coordinating patient arrivals, or briefing an ambulance team on the way to a scene. In many circumstances, such as medical staff treating COVID-19 patients, it is not ideal for personnel to be handling their radio devices.
