The Effect of Interference – Site Engineering Best Practices for Digital Systems
Many have found the migration to new digital SMR radio systems to be highly successful, but others have been highly disappointed. Some say the range is great – better than analog, yet again others are disappointed after transitioning to digital. For this reason, interference issues remain a popular topic throughout the radio industry. The lengthy process of diagnosing system function and performance issues can be prevented before the system ever goes live.
Our goal is to help system owners avoid facing these issues as they transition to new radio systems, and hopefully give some insight to those currently experiencing the pain of function and performance issues. This webinar will explore in detail some issues faced in DMR and TETRA technologies and illustrate best practices that are applicable to any digital SMR or LMR system.
Topics and questions to be addressed:
- Can you mix digital with analog in shared channels?
- Skills needed to properly design and manage SMR radio sites, and the pitfall of underestimating and undervaluing these skills
- RF interference
- Site Engineering Best Practices
- Eye Openers: Examples of when things go well and when things go terribly wrong
