Digital Walkie Talkie


DMR stands for Digital Mobile Radio – an open digital radio standard. DMR has received global recognition as a technology that combines voice, data, features & applications. Digital Mobile Radio is available in three “tiers” – loosely translated as levels of complexity. Tier I is licence-free, Tier II is licensed conventional, while Tier III is trunked, meaning that frequencies and channel capacity can be pooled and shared between users.

Key features of the DMR standard

  • Interoperability between manufacturers
  • Backwards spectrum compatibility
  • State of the art Forward Error Correction
  • Analogue to digital migration with DMR systems
  • Longer battery life
  • 2 talk paths in a 12.5 kHz channel
  • Doubling of capacity in existing channels
  • Data applications interface (AIS)
  • Two-slot Time Division (TDMA) operation

Market sectors

DMR technology already supports over three million users worldwide and we’re here to see that continue to grow. This technology has applications within many different industries and sectors, with an innovative and creative manufacturer and user base constantly finding new areas of application.

Each of the sectors DMR works within has its own challenges and technical requirements; there is much that it is common however. We’re here to help our members meet the changing needs of their own sector by driving forward technical standards and understanding.
