Majorcan buses' radio systems arrive in digital age

Majorcan buses’ radio systems are coming into the digital age, thanks to a new deal between Teltronic’s partner, Level Electronics, and Palma de Mallorca Urban Transports (EMT).

The deal, announced 23 October, will see Level Electronics supply EMT with 200 digital mobile radios (DMRs), six portable radios and a radio installation kit.

According to Teltronic, the DMRs will replace analog equipment used in EMT’s existing fleet, while also serving new buses.

The equipment will be integrated into EMT’s DMR network, providing coverage throughout Palma and its surroundings, the manufacturer said. It will also help improve security through encrypted communications and enable centralised management of all voice services.

Finally, the radios can send geolocation data, enabling the control centre to make more accurate operational decisions, and they can be reprogrammed remotely, without the need to connect them to a computer or any other device, Teltronic said.
