Wirefr3 were invited to provide a two-way radio solution for University College London Hospital and in particular their new eleven storey building. Given the complexity of the site, we had to consider both traditional two-way radio solutions and new concepts such as WAVE PTX Broadband Push-To-Talk. Working with the hospital along with their facilities management companies, CBRE and Medirest, their requirements included providing a robust radio system with connectivity across multiple London sites. They also required a system that all parties could utilise but also operate independently with management teams being in constant contact with their respective businesses.
Liaising with all stakeholders and extensive surveying of each site, we established the clients needs. Push-to-talk (PTT) functionality, multi-site setting, clarity, and fixed costs. The ability to communicate within their teams and to other stakeholders, the ability for management to remain in contact with their teams irrespective of their location was also key. As a Motorola Solutions Channel Partner, we were able to focus in on one of their two-way radio solutions in particular – Wave PTX Broadband Push-To-Talk.
We were delighted to able to provide a solution that met all our clients requirements and beyond – WAVE PTX.
Wave PTX utilises all four cellular networks and broadband. Depending on location and signal strength, the device will seamlessly connect to the stronger medium to operate. This allows our client to operate their devices within their building premises, moving across multiple sites and also stay connected when working from home or off-site.
Set up is straight forward. No infrastructure costs or equipment. No OFCOM licence fees. WAVE PTX is subscription based two-way radio solution, simple set up and absolute clarity in both set up and on-going costs.
In addition to the TLK100 radio – management users are utilising the APP option, allowing their smart phone to mirror a Push-To-Talk radio, reducing the need for the individual to have two devices.
In summary, our client now has a radio system that is simple and effective. It allows them to communicate across multiple sites and anywhere within the UK & Europe, keeping their teams connected 24/7.
