Simoco Wireless Solutions to supply DMR Tier II radios to Mountain Rescue England and Wales

Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW) has chosen Simoco Wireless Solutions to supply it with Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier II equipment.

MREW comprises 48 teams of volunteers, operating across diverse geographies to help people who have encountered difficulties in the outdoors, particularly walkers and climbers but also assisting Partner Emergency Services in a wide range of operations.

Clear and reliable radio communications are a must to enable these teams to carry out their missions efficiently and safely – and most teams currently use outdated analogue radio networks to achieve this.

Simoco has been chosen to supply DMR Tier II systems that will comprise more than 1,000 digital radio devices and base stations across MREW teams. DMR Tier II is the United Kingdom Search & Rescue agreed standard for Land Search & Rescue communications to ensure interoperability.

The roll-out includes Simoco’s 700 Series of portable and mobile radios, specifically the SDP760 digital portable radio and the SDM730 mobile radio terminal, both of which can operate across multiple analogue and digital modes.

The deployment also includes the 600 Series base station – which supports instant push-to-talk voice communications and VoIP telephone connectivity as well as open-standards applications support.
