MOTOTRBO™ Digital Radio Solution with integrated TRBOnet™ Dispatcher Computer monitoring solution.


Previously utilising an analogue radio system based at the Universities Main Campus which produced weak/dead spots, this was causing issues on reaching and providing a clear line of communication to the other Campuses. Causes identified were mainly geographical/urban obstacles and technological boundaries.

The University needed a seamless communications system that could monitor all calls, staff movements and give coverage across multiple campuses.

“Since Project outset DCRS have provided a very constructive and supportive service during the installation and training phases, this level of service provision has continued with appropriate responses to all our needs as and when required.Douglas Dack, Security Manager. Edinburgh Napier University


Through IP site connect the Estate now has multiple sites connected and an easy to manage system that can grow whenever required allowing them to add in further repeaters, hand portables or, mobiles should the coverage/users expand.
With all hand portables set with a roaming facility, all staff can focus on their job and not be distracted.

Voice and data integration through TRBOnet™’s Enterprise computer monitoring dispatch software has given the University Estate a single system which eliminated the need for separate site controllers and allowed them to work with enhanced operational effectiveness.
