    Satellite two Way Radio Has Gone Portable – Sirius vs XM 

    What’s your favourite feature of the zigbee communication device? In my opinion, I much like the design job – It is cooler than an Inuit’s underpants!

    I for one have thought seriously about subscribing to a Satellite Radio Account. There have been several reasons why I have delayed signing up though. At first it was about the cost. That is not really an issue now. Then it was the choice of radios. I wanted one that I could use in my car and one that is handheld for my workouts.

    If you have ever driven cross country you know what is like to loose a great radio station and then have to search for another. The scratch and static is annoying but you hope to be able to hear the end of the song or the next sentence of a talk radio host. Finally, when you can no longer understand or stand the noise you hit the search button.

    Sirius Satellite Radio See all 4 photos Satellite Radio on the Move Enter – Satellite Radio in the USA. Although Satellite walkie talkie has been in existence before 2001 it was intended for stationary listening. In 2001 Satellite radio went mobile. Sirius and XM utilizing different systems started to provide similar entertainment services to the busy and always on the move US listeners. Sirius with its elliptical orbits and XM with its repeaters fill the bill.

    The diversity of Satellite radio is achieved due to gigantic amounts of digital and CD (Sirius’s 7 terabytes vs XM’s 22 terabytes) storage and the ability to retransmit programming from off site locations such as sporting events, news broadcasts and entertainment venues. Files kept in storage is continually being updated and refreshed. Sirius and XM also maintain numerous studios where artists can perform their acts live.

    Now back to my original attraction to mobile Satellite Radio. My interest began to peak once the portable-handheld radios began to surface. They are not inexpensive by any means but they are becoming more accessible. Below I have listed several Satellite Radios. Another option is to listen to Satellite Radio on an internet enabled PDA or cell phone.

    The next hurdle is to decide which service (Sirius vs XM) to subscribe to. Although both services are very similar, their programming is different. The decision will be based on the availability of the type of programming that you prefer. For example, if sports are your favorite programming – research each to see which offers programming closest to your preferences.

    Listed below are highlights of each service.

    Cincinnati State Technical College and Community College 

    Wow. The newest motorola two way radio yellow is incredible. I mean it is just so gorgeous and so sophisticated. I pity individuals who grew up without the communication device stephen hawking.

    communication device telephoneCincinnati State Technical and Community College (CSTCC) needed to migrate to a communications system that would support clear coverage over a large area and cost-effectively accommodate multiple talkgroups.

    Studying the Needs of Campus Security CSTCC is comprised of three campuses and over 1.3 million square feet. Until recently, the college used an all-analog system, components of which were 15 years old. According to Raymond Mirizzi, Director of Facilities at CSTCC, We needed to upgrade our whole communications system, and it was vital that the entire campus be covered with a 2 Way Radio solution that would support very clear, consistent and secure communications.

    The three-part campus needed a supervisory channel that would provide the flexibility for critical security officers and related personnel to communicate during times of crisis. Of course, because such emergencies can arise at any time, it was also critically important that the migration from analog to digital proceed smoothly and quickly because even brief downtime could put the campus at risk.

    A budget had been established, and CSTCC expected a lot of value for their investment. An Educated Customer Makes the Right Choice A consultant was sent to work with CSTCC to determine needs, assess the options, and help them make the right choices. Because MOTOTRBO is still a relatively new solution, it was also important to provide CSTCC with a hands-on demonstration so they could get a sense of the potential that MOTOTRBO could offer.

    After the demonstration, CSTCC was so excited about the product that they asked for a quote immediately so they could present it to their trustees that evening. With the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech, trustees were very eager to implement a more secure communications system. The trustees appreciated that security is built into this digital solution: when users monitor digital
    Communications, they hear only that the channel is in use they dont hear the actual conversation.

    MOTOTRBO was our choice, explains Michael Wylie, Director of Environment and Public Safety at CSTCC. According to Wylie, based on the demonstration it was obvious that MOTOTRBO electronics were much better and reception was much clearer than what we had in our old analog system. Wylie was working under a budget, and MOTOTRBO supports lower cost of ownership compared to analog systems because fewer repeaters are required: two voice channels are utilized in one 12.5kHz frequency channel, so only one repeater is needed for every two voice or data paths. Considering all factors, Wylie concluded that we could replace our old system with this higher quality solution at a reasonable cost. MOTOTRBO also proved to be a way to ensure a smooth migration from analog to digital, supporting dual mode operations that could enable backwards communication between new units and older units already in place. Following this migration strategy, CSTCC could buy a few MOTOTRBO radios and use them in the analog mode; as time and budget allowed, they could then start migrating a few radios at a time to digital.

    Graduating to a Better Communications Solution Mirizzi understands that when youre going offline to restart a new system, there will be a down period, and that can be a big problem if theres an mergency taking place. When we switched to MOTOTRBO, however, most people on campus didnt even know we switched over. It was that smooth. MOTOTRBO is now installed at CSTCC with 16 channels, one of which is to be used exclusively by supervisory personnel. According to Wylie,
    This afforded us the opportunity to carry on confidential conversations without everyone else hearing what was going on. Having this supervisory channel would mean that CSTCC didnt have to buy an extra FCC license or a new conventional repeater.

    The security repeater has ten units running off it; the facilities repeater has forty units running off it
    and each one can be expanded to several hundred users, so theres plenty of room to grow.

    MOTOTRBO also provides much clearer audio quality than is possible with analog, especially in fringe
    coverage areas and thats especially important on this sprawling campus. A digital signal is inherently clearer than analog; and with noise suppression technology, MOTOTRBO audio becomes even crisper and sharper. MOTOTRBO gave us the ability, Mirizzi says, to communicate at a greater distance and branch out and create different channels for our internal operations. And then we had the opportunity for facilities and security to come together and communicate as one group, bringing together the right people at the right time.

    MOTOTRBO Ready to Grow, Digitally Designed to facilitate quick and easy migration and operate in mixed analog and digital environments, MOTOTRBOs digital technology can be adapted to a number of different work environments, seamlessly supporting industry-specific applications. The open, flexible and licensable data interface offered by MOTOTRBO is designed to be regularly enhanced
    through 3rd party devices and applications, making MOTOTRBO a terrifically expandable platform that gives users the opportunity to upgrade their radios as needed for continuously higher performance.MOTOTRBO is a complete system of mobile and portable units, repeater, data applications and accessories that can be easily adapted meet specific customer needs, whether in education, service or industrial environments. A forward-compatible platform, MOTOTRBO provides a solid foundation for future growth of a communications system.
