Hytera DMR RD98X integrates communication networks of different cities for simultaneous communication


The Colombian Red Cross is a non-governmental organization which undertakes humanitarian missions for excellence in the country and is part of the largest humanitarian network in the world: the International Red Cross and Red Crescent, which is present in 186 countries.


The Colombian Red Cross is a multi-disciplinary organization present throughout the Colombian. It interacts with various governmental and private institutions, and in some cases runs its own communications systems to be able to cope with emergency situations together with them. In many cases, the Colombian Red Cross is the core part of the two-way communications in the event of emergencies in the country, integrating different technologies and vendors to create both temporary networks and networks that are kept in constant operation and with the ability to integrate different institutions' networks for the decision-making and events support. These challenges became more tangible on the Summit of the Americas, and Hytera products were the perfect solution to their needs.


In order to guarantee timely and appropriate communication in their work, the implementation of the DMR solution was necessary since it required higher communication security and improved method of access to the network for a greater number of simultaneous communication, capabilities to send text messages and manage applications with full-digital communication. So the Colombian Red Cross started to migrate the analog VHF network to a digital one. For starters, this was established in 7 departments of Colombia in a very strategic way supporting events and emergency situations that occur at each site.
