Triple-Digital Radios – An Industry First!

The KENWOOD NX-5000 SeriesNow Supports DMR as well as NXDN & P25 Protocols for Maximum Flexibility
KENWOOD continues to invest its extensive experience and acclaimed technologies in NEXEDGE, an innovative digital communications solution that satisfies the most stringent requirements of today’s mission-critical radio users. And with the new addition of DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) support, NEXEDGE leaps further ahead of the competition: NX-5000 Series portable and mobile radios are compatible with three different digital protocols – NXDN, DMR and P25 (Phase 1 & 2) – enabling them to serve in all public sector, commercial and public safety roles with flawless performance and advanced feature sets.

DMR support

DMR is an open radio standard established in 2005 by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) for commercial communications. It uses 2-slot TDMA in a 12.5 kHz channel, effectively doubling the capacity of existing 12.5 kHz equipment. This provides smooth communications and coordination for staff in a wide variety of commercial environments, including retail, hospitality and manufacturing.

Compatibility with the DMR AIS IP Console Interface facilitates radio dispatch operations, while Call Interruption is ideal for security guards. Digital DMR Data Services and Remote Monitoring are among several other benefits.

With the addition of DMR support, the NX-5000 Series now offers unsurpassed interoperability and flexibility. A single NX-5000 radio can simultaneously support two digital protocols plus FM analog, offering the following combinations: FM/DMR/NXDN, FM/NXDN/P25, and FM/DMR/P25.

Whether it’s nationwide enterprises building large-scale trunked networks with NXDN, staff staying in touch via DMR or first responders maintaining vital contact with P25 – the NX-5000 Series has a clear digital advantage.
