What can a two-way radio do better than my mobile phone?

There’s no doubt cellular mobile technology has revolutionised the way we communicate. Yet, despite being an older technology, there’s plenty of evidence that two-way radios are still far more effective in working environments. The latest digital products offer a range of exciting features that can significantly enhance productivity, safety and efficiency in your working environment. Here are some ways your digital two-way radio can really add value:


Generally, mobile phones are designed for normal, everyday applications as opposed to extensive usage in harsh environments. Two-way radios are built to withstand incredibly harsh conditions, from heat to cold, sand, water, snow, wind and everything in between. In fact, with so many different options on the market, you can pick a solution to meet the unique conditions of your operating space, ensuring safer, more reliable communications year-round.

Working without a network

If you have a mobile phone, you’ve almost definitely suffered at the hands of poor coverage and signal loss. However, without the heavy reliance on cell reception, data and Wi-Fi, you’re far less likely to lose service with the latest digital two-way devices.


Many digital radios can be specially encrypted to stop third parties gaining access to privileged data. This ensures peace of mind for organisations, in knowing their information is safer and more secure.

Battery life

Digital radios use less energy, providing longer battery life on every charge. With less time spent charging, you can enjoy reduced downtime and greater productivity than you would with constant use of phones.

Enhanced phone services

Did you know that many radios can be reached via phone call? This ensures communications from a range of locations – even if the individual does not have a radio – for example, in an offsite office. Plus, not only can they accept phone calls, they can also send and receive text messages. This particularly is useful at times where verbal communication is too dangerous or ineffective, adding an extra layer of security and peace of mind. Plus, radios offer these services without some of the normal headaches that come with mobile phone use. For example, you won’t have to deal with monthly charges for calls and texts, or having to call and wait for a dial tone or someone to answer.
