Enabling a safer, more efficient University experience

Universities are large, diverse organisations with facilities often spread over large campuses or dispersed across cities. To ensure operational efficiency and safety on campus and student dormitories campus security, wardens and other staff require reliable communications able to unite different sites into one effective entity.

Hytera offers PMR and PoC solutions as well as converged technology platforms that enable the integration of multiple technologies for improved efficiency and situational awareness.

Better Efficiency

Good communications are paramount in helping universities run efficiently and enabling teaching, administration, and service staff to work more productively and to deliver a more effective and quality experience for students.

  • Better Coordination

    Better Coordination

    Two-way radios devices support individual, group, emergency and broadcast calling.

  • Instant Communications

    Instant Communications

    Instant PTT connectivity via radios or PoC devices enables university administrators to communicate with particular call groups simultaneously, rather than have to contact them all individually, for faster response.

  • Workflow Management

    Workflow Management

    Radios can support job ticketing, status messaging and workflow management systems to enable university support staff to carry out electronically assigned tasks and to confirm when jobs are completed.

  • Hands-Free Wireless operation

    Hands-Free Wireless operation

    Integrated Bluetooth technology enables discreet wireless earpieces to be worn allowing university staff and security personnel to keep in touch with supervisors and colleagues, while still carrying out tasks.

Enhanced Worker Safety

A variety of safety features can be added to radios, so in addition to emergency calling they can send automatic safety alerts meaning university staff are better protected.

  • Emergency Button

    Emergency Button

    Radios come with an emergency ‘panic’ button, which can be programmed to send an alarm to the command centre and to other radios, along with the person’s ID.

  • Man Down and Lone Worker

    Man Down and Lone Worker

    Higher tier radios support Man Down alarms, that are triggered if a user has fallen over and the radio is horizontal and Lone Worker alarms if the radio is inactive beyond a set time.

  • Location Services

    Location Services

    GPS-enabled radios allow users to be located and tracked outdoors, while indoor location beacons or Wi-Fi can be used to locate school personnel working indoors.

  • Personal Alarms

    Personal Alarms

    Small personal alarms issued to female teaching staff and students, which will sound an alarm when pressed and send an alert to control centres and to security guard radios.

Improved Connectivity

Private radio systems provide dependable coverage than mobile cellular networks across large university campuses with high levels of availability and reliability. PoC broadband communications can also be used to extend the network.

  • Reliable RF coverage

    Reliable RF coverage

    Relying on mobile phones can be problematic. Private radio networks can provide coverage and capacity exactly where it is needed thereby eliminating not-spots across the university footprint.

  • Connecting alarms to devices

    Connecting alarms to devices

    DMR radios can be connected to alarms such as smoke detectors and intrusion alerts ensuring the right people are informed immediately and enabling a faster response to any problem.

  • SCADA and IoT

    SCADA and IoT

    The DMR network can transmit SCADA and M2M data enabling remote automation and asset control such as smart building control for air conditioning, heating, lights, CCTV and alarms.

  • Bodycams


    University FM and security staff with bodycams can record incidents or faults. If Wi-Fi or broadband is available live video can be streamed to control centres for greater situational awareness.
