Crawley Business Watch retail & pubwatch scheme upgrade to MOTOTRBO DP4000 Series digital two way radios & TRBOnet application
An expanding and well supported Crawley Business Watch Scheme with over 120 members was looking to purchase the necessary hardware and software required to upgrade an existing analogue radio system to a digital radio system supporting a data application.
The key objectives of the new system was to provide a reliable, effective and geographically extensive service covering at least the Borough of Crawley. The Shopwatch and Pubwatch include a variety of Members throughout Crawley, ranging in size and location, and the local parades. Pubwatch includes night clubs, public houses, restaurants, hotels, social clubs, off licenses and take always.
The backbone of the system was to provide a reliable solution to give communications during a national, regional or local emergency.
MOTOTRBO™ Digital Radio Solution with integrated TRBOnet™ Dispatcher Computer monitoring solution.
The existing radio scheme provided an effective means to communicate confidential safety and awareness information between scheme members (pubs, businesses and statutory authorities). Crawley Borough Council (CBC) had a requirement to purchase the infrastructure and equipment required to replace an existing analogue radio scheme to a digital operating system. Through a tender process CBC awarded DCRS as the suitable contractor to design, supply, install and maintain the required digital system infrastructure.
