Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® digital radio systems were launched in December 2007, and offer distinct benefits over analog with an increased effective coverage area, advanced digital voice audio, inherent secure voice, group and individual calling features, GPS location, and government-friendly spectrum efficiency as well as a soft migration path from legacy analog.
NEXEDGE® system have since been successfully deployed in numerous commercial radio services, hospitality and sporting/entertainment complexes, heavy manufacturing and refining facilities, utility companies, technology campuses and multi-agency public safety systems. Many large institutional customers have set up NEXEDGE® multi-channel trunked systems and wide area networks using the flagship NXR-700/800 IP-connective core units. The NXR-710/810 will add an entry-level solution for those customers who only need basic conventional operation, though more software-driven options will be available for these models in the near future.
Kenwood has been actively introducing NEXEDGE® systems worldwide to commercial and private operators who want the advantages of digital technology, but with traditional mandatory command and control. At the same time, the company is laying the foundation for achieving strong qualitative growth with investments centered on system solutions.
