For 2020 Wall to Wall Comms is launching some exciting new products on the website! One of the first launches of the year is POC radios. With over 40 years of experience in two way radios, we like to think of ourselves as ‘radio people’. Whilst POC technology has been around for a while, the latest advancements in POC technology has made them another reliable option when choosing a radio.
What is POC technology?
POC stands for P.T.T Technology over Cellular. POC is essentially a two way radio that uses the mobile phone data network to communicate, instead of the traditional radio waves.
Is POC a new technology?
Despite POC only recently rising in popularity, the technology has been around for a number of years. When POC technology originally came about, mobile data was still working on a 2G network. This was slow and unreliable and meant that radios using the POC technology were being outdone by the two way radios using traditional radio signals. However, with the mobile data network progressing to 3G, 4G and 5G, POC technology radios have become more reliable and faster than ever.
Why choose POC radios over traditional two way radios?
There are two main advantages of POC radios:
- Virtually unlimited range: Where traditional radios are limited to a range of a few miles. POC technology is only limited to where there is mobile data or a WIFI signal. Instead of relying on the assistance of antennas to communicate over long but limited distances, your team will have no limits to their communication.
- Exemption from OFCOM licensing requirements: As there is a limited spectrum of radio frequencies, users of traditional radios require a licence from OFCOM. However, if your business is based in a densely populated area with many other businesses using radio frequencies, an OFCOM licence can be hard to obtain. With POC radios, an OFCOM licence is not needed.
Who does Wall to Wall recommend POC radios to?
Any business can benefit from the use of POC radios. POC radios are fast, reliable and of similar cost to traditional radios. However, with the range of POC radios being only limited to where there is mobile data network or a WIFI signal, businesses that span a wide area or travel over long distances can particularly benefit from their use. For example, taxi companies, couriers or any company with multiple sites across the country. Additionally, any business that is situated in a densely populated area such as London or Edinburgh where radio frequencies are in high demand, the use of POC radios can eliminate the hassle of obtaining an OFCOM licence or risk of interfering radio signals.
