Expand your radio coverage to 100%

No matter how well attended to your radio network infrastructure is, if your operational area is large enough, you’re bound to have white spots. Getting to 100% coverage with radio towers is prohibitively expensive. But there is a cost-efficient alternative to boosting coverage.

The struggle for coverage

Whether you are technically or financially responsible for radio coverage of an operational area, you’ll know that achieving and maintaining coverage is a struggle. Subterranean cables corrode with age or get accidentally severed in road works. Radio towers are vulnerable to everything from falling tree branches to fires and hurricanes. Maintenance costs keep rising. And if your operational area is sparsely populated, the cost of getting coverage to the last corners of your map can be dizzying – making it a real pain if you’re required by law or KPIs to provide coverage. At the same time, the demand for increased data capabilities increases the pressure – and the need to balance what is possible against what is feasible.

Your link for resilient and unified field communication

With PRISM PTT+, Cobham Satcom offers a unique solution to getting to 100% coverage without breaking the bank. Our technology collects and utilizes radio (LMR/DMR), LTE networks and satellite to connect essential personnel and equipment to a unified, redundant, IP-based, critical communications ecosystem. PRISM PTT+ seamlessly extends LMR coverage and capacity from line-of-sight to beyond-line-of-sight so that workers can enjoy the safety and operational benefits of voice and data communication coverage in areas where they would previously have been off-grid. The solution eliminates white spots completely, and provides global coverage, independent of frequencies, licensing, and availability of radio infrastructure – and all without investing in new infrastructure.

Global coverage – no more white spots

PRISM PTT+ enables radios out of coverage to transmit digital voice and data over already existing LTE networks, with satellite as a fallback solution. Constantly scanning available networks for the best possible connection, the multi-bearer solution routes voice and data messages seamlessly. This allows field users to operate freely, maintaining exactly the same communications capabilities across your operational area.

Hang on to your hardware

With PRISM PTT+, field personnel can hang on to the handsets they know and trust. The only change they’ll notice is that now they’ll have full voice and data coverage where previously they had none.

Gradual switch-over

PRISM PTT+ integrates and utilizes the hardware and infrastructure you have already invested in. The radio towers you installed last year to extend coverage will still be useful. But over time, you’ll be able to save on maintenance of radio towers.

Seamless switching

The system uses automatic routing between all available networks, always picking the best available option. Switching between networks is imperceptible and requires no field user intervention at all.

No changes required

Introducing the PRISM PTT+ in your organization has no impact on established procedures and doesn’t require hardware replacement, training, etc. All the frequencies and channels you’re used to are still there. We simply do away with the white spots.

Integrated with existing radio solution

With voice protocol optimised for satellite and poor link conditions at the edge of radio coverage, PRISM PTT+ expands your existing radio solution for reliable coverage anywhere. It interconnects seamlessly with any LMR system transforming your existing portable and in-vehicle VHF/UHF devices to beyond line-of-sight. Reliability is high and roll-out is simple, with a staged, ‘one radio at a time’ process developed to ensure simplicity and redundancy.
