BLOG: Digitising the humble ‘walkie-talkie’

Andy Chan | July 19, 2012
What are the challenges of moving from analog to digital two-way radios?

Applications are increasing the use and functions of digital two-way radios. A good example is the App Developer Program (ADP) by Motorola Solutions started in 2007. This comprehensive program encompasses a flourishing developer community that incubates, accelerates, replicates and develops third-party applications for two-way radios. The 300-strong community is supported with a digital platform, the licence to access proprietary tools, application programming interfaces, developer kits, online access to a knowledge database and online technical support, besides regularly hosting activities, events and roadshows to help its developers market their apps and gain industry know-how.

The digital revolution is breathing new life into the humble 'walkie-talkie', offering users more alternatives to be part of an IT-enabled enterprise. By leveraging the efficiencies that two-way digital radios have to offer, the entire enterprise is assured of keeping connected.
