Did you know that it is possible to make and receive phone calls on a two-way radio? With telephone interconnect, your two way radio can be transformed into a fully functioning phone. Not only are you able to make and receive calls you have access to familiar phone-like features, such as call history, phonebook, and caller ID.

How to Make a Phone Call on Your Two-way Radio

To enable telephone interconnect, you will need an application, such as Teldio’s RBX. RBX is specifically designed to allow radio users to make and receive phone calls directly on their two-way radios.

The Benefits of Telephone Interconnect

Telephone interconnect offers businesses many benefits, from increased productivity to reduced operational costs.

By enabling radios to make and receive calls, mobile workers become increasingly more productive as they no longer need to rely on multiple devices to communicate. Supervisors are also able to speak with their team members instantly, from virtually anywhere.

Mobile workers are also able to send and receive critical information without the need to communicate via a dispatcher. In the event of an emergency, a mobile worker can have access to dialing for help, whether it be internally to the security department or externally to a 9-1-1 operator, increasing worker safety and security.

With telephone interconnect, you can extend the footprint of your corporate telephony system (PBX) to your radio network, allowing for a streamlined communication process and eliminating the need for mobile communication infrastructures, such as cell phones.

Integrate with PBXs, Phone Lines & More

Easily connect to any PBX (SIP or analog), simple phone lines, Internet/telephony service providers and more. Many applications are compatible with MOTOTRBO™ digital radios in Simplex, Repeater, IP Site Connect, Capacity Plus, Linked Capacity Plus & Capacity Max modes.

The types of telephony integrations which are possible with certain telephone interconnect applications are SIP-enabled IP PBXs (SIP Compatible) – Mitel, Avaya, Cisco, and more, Analog PBXs, PSTN / POTS Lines, Internet Telephony Service Providers, Cellular GSM Networks.

With the multitude of integration options, telephone interconnect is a great fit for any business.
