Hytera DMR IP Site Connecting serves Flour Mills Farm in Nigeria
Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc(FMN) was incorporated in 1960. In its 54 year history, Flour Mills has remained at the forefront of wheat milling in Nigeria, and its shares were subsequently listed on The Nigerian Stock Exchange. Today, Flour Mills has a rated milling capacity of over 8,000 metric tons used to provide flour and other wheat-based products per day, making it one of the largest single site mills in the world.
FMN owns plenty milling infrastructure to maintain its competitive advantage. In the northern of Nigeria, 3 farms of FMN are located in Niger State, SUNTI GOLDEN SUGAR, SUNFLAG FARM and KABOJI FARMS NIGERIA LIMITED. SUNTI GOLDEN SUGAR is about 30 Km far from SUNFLAG FARM, and KABOJI FARMS is about 120 Km far from SUNTI and SUNFLAG.
In 2014, SUNTI and SUNFLAG farms asked for a communication solution that could cover their areas of operations and allow them to communicate between these two farms. It requires a minimum signal coverage distance of about 30km away from base on each farm.
Hytera DMR IP Site connecting solution with the RD98X DMR Repeater station, PD60X DMR radio and PD78X DMR radios respectively and cambium Microwave link radio for the IP Site connect are proposed to them, which are high end professional communication devices offering optimum voice clarity.
The system was deployed in May 2014 on both farms with a total number of about 20 hand held DMR radios. Coverage was exactly what they anticipated and they have since been enjoying it with their number of radios rising to over 40 units at January 2015. Invited by SUNTI and SUNFLAG farms to have a overall communication between the three farms, Kaboji came on board and the system was further deployed in March 2015 with one Hytera RD98X DMR Repeater system and 20 PD60X hand held radios.
Enhanced voice quality
This solution adopts DMR technology with professional digital codec and digital error-correction technologies. DMR products provide enhanced voice quality even at the edge of the farms.
Hytera PD60X and PD78X DMR radios are strictly compliant with IP67 standards. Even under harsh environments such as heavy raining, dust, Hytera radios can also work well and provide outstanding performance.
The most cost efficiency
With the application of TDMA technology, one repeater hardware supports two traffic channels with the same frequency. Compared with analog system, DMR system helps customer save the frequency resources and reduce total ownership cost.
