Coronavirus may be disrupting your workflow, but it doesn’t have to interrupt critical communication. In a crisis, communication becomes more important than ever though it often becomes more challenging.
There’s a lot of advice going around about what to say to your team and how to set the right tone for your organization during coronavirus. But is your communication hardware adapting to your needs? The best message in the world will only help you if you can share it.
RoIP or radio over IP (See “What is RoIP“) offers a solution that allows your team to effectively communicate through Covid-19 and beyond. No matter the distances you need to cover or the devices you need to integrate, RoIP can effortlessly connect your scattered team as you adapt to the current climate so that you can come out stronger on the other side.
RoIP takes crisis communication to the next level by eliminating coverage gaps and distance limitations.
For businesses that rely on two-way radio communication, Covid-19 and the related stay in place orders present a challenge. Teams that worked in close proximity are now divided – some working on site and others from home. This distance poses a problem for traditional two-way radio communication, but not for RoIP.
RoIP uses LTE, satellite, and WiFi networks to connect two or more locations with push-to-talk (PTT) communication. Two-way radio over the internet allows you to connect team members located anywhere – across town or on another continent.
Emergency responders using RoIP don’t have to worry about losing connection because of gaps beyond natural barriers. These weaknesses of traditional radio networks don’t apply to RoIP networks. Mobile and portable RoIP solutions keep teams reliably connected while they’re separated or on the move.
RoIP also allows you to expand your communication hardware portfolio beyond traditional portable, mobile, and fixed site land mobile radios (LMRs). Using RoIP you can seamlessly integrate other devices such as smartphones, laptops, and dispatch consoles into your PTT system.
RoIP interfaces serve as virtual radio repeaters allowing two-way radios to connect with other devices enabled for PTT. This radio interoperability allows your team to continue using the powerful simplicity of PTT even when you need to add new features to your communication system.
The amazing reliability and interoperability of RoIP can equip your team to communicate and carry on regardless of your locations or hardware needs.
