What Can Wall to Wall Do For Your Business

At Wall to Wall Communications we have over 40 years experience in bringing you the latest communications technology. So what do we do exactly?

Two Way Radio Suppliers

At Wall to Wall we are proud providers of two way radios across many industries. These include; Construction, Events, Security, Hospitality Leisure, Auction Houses, Transportation, Retailers, Film Production, Banks, Hospitals and much more. Our most recent case study includes the Bank Underground Station where we are providing a multi channel Hytera System that is connected with leaky feeder cables to allow signal to penetrate underground. You can read more about this case study here. In addition to this, we also provide two way radios to local charities such as the Croydon Legacy Youth Zone. For this charity we have provided 16 ICOM 4002 radios to enable staff to keep the premises safe, secure and working efficiently for the youth of London to enjoy.

Types of Two Way Radios

To enable us to provide two way radios across all industries, at Wall to Wall we have a wide selection of radio rentals. These include Digital Radios, Analogue Radios, ATEX Radios and more recently POC Radios. Whatever your budget and needs may be, we have the perfect radio for you. Do you need help finding the right one? You can read our blog post here which outlines the benefits of each, or you can contact us on 0208 770 1007, email us on info@charlotter5.sg-host.com or fill out the form below for personalised advice.


Specialised Two Way Radios

Two way radios can be modified to provide additional features beyond just voice messages, to make them a crucial tool in the running of your business. Not only do radios provide communication, but they enhance efficiency, safety and security. Specialised features that can be installed on your radio include noise cancelling, discrete communication, man down, lone worker, GPS tracking (Trackitt), manager override function, integrated task management systems, text messaging, caller ID, emergency call functions and automated radio alarms. For more information on this, you can read our blog ‘Make Your Radio Right For Your Business’ here. Two way radios can also be designed to withstand the environment which they will be exposed to. For example if your radio will be used in construction they can be dust-proof. Alternatively, if your radios will be used for outdoor security they can be waterproof. Whatever your needs are, Wall to Wall can provide you with a communication solution.

Additional Services and Products

Whilst we are two way radio specialists, this is not all we provide. In addition to walkie talkies, we are now providers of body cameras which are particularly useful for customer-facing businesses. If you have any questions about body cameras, you can read our FAQ blog post here. In addition to two way radios, we also provide supporting technology such as leaky feeders, Distributed Antenna Systems and Radio Frequency Over Fibre. We even provide help with applying for an OFCOM licence and training staff on the use of two way radios!

What is Radio Frequency Over Fibre (RFOF)

What is Radio Frequency Over Fibre (RFOF)

What is Radio Frequency Over Fibre (RFOF)?

Radio Frequency Over Fibre is a way of transmitting radio waves via a fibre optic cable. The Radio Frequency is first converted into light, where it then travels along the fibre optic cable, before being recovered by an Optical Electrical modulator (O/E) and converted back into a Radio Frequency once more. Unlike a traditional copper coax cable, the transmission along a fibre optic cable can travel more than 300ft and is not distance limited. This makes Radio Frequency Over Fibre more applicable to many businesses.

A Radio Frequency Over Fibre consists of 4 parts:

  • Light Source/Laser Diode
  • Electrical-optical Modulator (E/O) which converts the Radio Frequency into a light beam
  • Transmission Medium: This is a single-mode fibre-optic cable. This cable has minimal light reflections to lower attenuation and allows the signal to travel longer distances.
  • Optical-electrical Modulator (O/E) which converts the light beam back into a Radio Frequency signal on the receivers side using a photodiode or avalanche photodiode (APD). 

Radio Frequency Over Fibre can be categorised as either ‘Radio Frequency Over Fibre (RFOF) or Intermediate Frequency Over Fibre (IFOF).

  1. RFOF: A RFOF signal with a radio frequency greater than 10GHZ is imposed on a lightwave signal before being transported over the fibre optic cable. 
  2. IFOF: An IFOF with a radio signal frequency less than 10 GHZ is used for modulating light before being transported over the fibre optic cable. 

Where can you use Radio Frequency Over Fibre 

One of the main uses of RFOF is its ability to provide wireless coverage to ‘dead zones’. These can include tunnels, behind buildings, mountainous areas, inside structures and secluded areas.

Advantages of Radio Frequency Over Fibre 

There are many advantages of Radio Frequency Over Fibre. These include:

  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Lower cost as a result of easy maintenance, simple installation and low power consumption
  • Low risk of noise and electromagnetic interference
  • Lower transmission losses
  • Large bandwidths
  • Radio frequency signals can be sent over large distances without the use of repeaters
  • Adaptable with future advancements. Fibre Optics can cope with higher speeds than today’s technology, meaning they are able to be used with future advancements.
  • Wireless access: A single antenna can receive any and all wireless communication carried over a fibre optic cable. This includes 5G, cell, Wifi etc…
