Dual Band DMR: Stay Connected on Multiple Networks and Frequencies

Dual Band DMR radios

Organizations such as mines, transport agencies and utilities often cover vast areas, working across different sites. When these particular areas and sites operate on different networks or frequency bands, staying connected can become complicated. The new Tait TM9356 dual band mobile radio makes it easy to switch between analog and DMR Tier 2 bands, and enables you to communicate through a single control head.

Mining crews, drivers and linesmen around the world rely on Tait DMR solutions to keep them safe and connected. Our commitment to open standards means you have genuine interoperability across your network, allowing you to communicate with other organizations and operate on multiple networks.

Tait DMR radios are multimode and have the ability to operate on multiple networks such as conventional analog, MPT, and DMR, and with Tait GeoFencing, they can even switch between networks automatically!

Tait TM9356: A Dual Band DMR Mobile Radio

Many organizations work across multiple frequency bands, making staying connected a challenge. The good news is that with the Tait TM9356 dual band radio, you can communicate on different networks and frequency bands without installing separate radios for each band.

At the time of publishing this blog post, Tait is one of only two vendors that make dual band DMR mobile radios.

The Tait TM9356 mobile provides dual frequency band capability for DMR Tier 2 and conventional analog solutions, enabling you to make and receive calls on either VHF or UHF radios from a single, easy-to-use control head.

This means radio operation becomes safer and more efficient for workers out in the field, because they don’t need to manually switch between radios or control heads, or navigate through different menu structures – allowing them to keep their focus on the job.

Benefits of being able to operate on multiple networks and frequencies include:

  • Interoperability: A dual band radio enables communications between organizations that operate on different networks and frequency bands.
  • Roam between different networks: When organizations rely on multiple networks for different areas of operation, their radios need the ability to work on every network. For example, UHF for better coverage in urban areas and VHF in more remote, mountainous or densely forested areas.
  • Combine networks: When two separate networks are merged, it can be easier combining two radio systems than replacing or upgrading the network infrastructure.
  • Network migration: Mobile radios that can operate on your current network as well as your future network give you the flexibility to roll out new networks at your own speed, saving you the cost and disruption of having to do a complete network replacement all at once.

Tait DMR: Flexible Solutions Made to Evolve

All Tait DMR products and solutions are flexible, giving you options to meet your requirements today, and easily add other features as your needs change in the future. The TM9356 is no different: it allows you to mix and match frequency bands and power outputs to suit your needs, and choose a graphical control head with in-built 3W speaker or a hand held control head with 10W or 15W external speakers.

Because different teams within organizations often have their own distinct communications requirements, they might have radios programmed with different channels, talk groups, or functions. To make it easier for teams to identify their equipment in the field, the TM9356 gives you control head color options.

Remote kits enable a flexible installation too; it allows for the control head and radio bodies to be installed in separate locations. This means radio bodies can be installed under the seat, in a glovebox, or in the trunk if space is an issue, or to make it more convenient.

Exceptional Audio Performance

Tait DMR portable and mobile radios are built to meet and exceed international standards with excellent sensitivity, range, and crystal clear audio quality.
