Omnitronics in the News: Does RoIP Add Value to Two-Way Radio?
Radio over internet protocol (RoIP) adds to the value of two-way radio and in many cases replaces telephone calls. It is a technique very similar to voice over IP (VoIP) with both technologies using a network, usually the internet.
Its method of operation is transparent to the user who could well be using a conventional two-way radio network. Under RoIP at least one node of a network is a radio which is then connected, using IP to other network nodes that can also be two-way radios.
As in VoIP, digitising the analog voice signal, encoding and packeting are needed to send a message over a packet-switched network. This provides a cost-effective method of interconnecting radio systems and operators and leads to considerable benefits.
