The new digital network now covers a wide area of the Philippines including most of the country's police districts. The DMR system has helped to ensure a much stronger compatibility, which has enhanced the ability of the police to handle their daily duties. It also helps users better deal with major security events and responses to natural disasters.
Hytera has enabled PNP to smoothly migrate from its existing analog network to the new digital network, while also maximizing cost savings as the existing analog equipment did not have to be scrapped. The DMR solution reuses the analog RF spectrum and much of the existing infrastructure.
Higher Frequency Efficiency
The new DMR solution provides much more efficient use of the PNP’s existing radio frequency allocations. The two-slot DMR TDMA technology means that for every existing analog 12.5 kHz system, the PNP now gets two equivalent talk channels using the new DMR 12.5 kHz channel. DMR technology instantly doubles the PNP’s radio capacity.
Unlike the old analog system, the new DMR network supports end-to-end encryption of voice and data with a choice of 40, 128, or 256 bits encryption solutions using the AES and ARC4 cryptographic systems.
Hytera Smart Dispatch System supports the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) for communication with IP private automatic branch exchanges (PABX). This provides a gateway between DMR radios and the public telephone network (PSTN) and allows intersystem communications between digital radios and mobile phones.
Versatile, Better Quality Audio Voice Calls
The PNP digital radio system supports various voice call types including private calls, group calls, all calls, and emergency calls, along with text messages and GPS location services. Hytera noise suppression technology ensures louder, clearer audio quality than the old analog devices.
Car ID SMS Query
The SMS query function allows handheld radios to send vehicle license plate numbers and then receive feedback with vehicle status information.
Dynamic Group Number Assignment (DGNA)
DGNA is a DMR feature that allows the creation of a temporary radio group during special events and operations that require the immediate establishment of a new talk group for a particular activity.
By the completion of this project, the PNP will have achieved interconnectivity of trunking radio terminals, which can be monitored from national, regional, and provincial headquarters, as well as from their respective city or municipal police stations.
