Stadia Operations: does the kenwood cut it?

 

Communications during key events is one of the essential essentials that makes it progress smoothly, the Mototrbo radios are the two way radio of preference for most events and stadiums. But the kenwood nextedge digital two way radio is worth taking a look at, it has all of the functionality of the DP series.

 

With tens of thousands of people attending individual stadium events for sport and entertainment, the challenges facing management, safety offices and emergency services are both large in scale and complex.

Staying in contact with your staff

Reducing the risks of accidents, petty crime, anti-social behaviour, public disorder and even terrorism while managing the efficient flow of spectators, participants, VIPs, vehicles, goods and services at multiple entry and exit points, especially in the event of a major incident, is a major logistical feat.

In most cases the burden of responsibility to ensure compliance with legislation, best practice and the safety and security of the stadium and those within it falls upon the Stadium Safety Officer. One of the most powerful tools at their disposal of Stadia Operations Management in implementating a stadium’s safety and security strategy during events is the ability for all cross functional teams to communicate with each other, their counterparts and the emergency services reliably, effectively and immediately anywhere on site.

Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® trunked Digital Two-Way radio solutions are designed to provide clear and reliable multi-user radio communications systems in stadium safety and security applications. Rugged, reliable walkie talkie, hand portable radios, in-vehicle mobile units and infinitely scalable trunked networks allow stadia management to have a system tailored to their venue and the varying staffing levels at events. NEXEDGE® digital radios additionally feature Analogue/Digital Mixed Mode, which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios, whatever the make, to provide a straightforward and economical migration path from analogue to the benefits of advanced digital two way radio communications.

All NEXEDGE® hand portable walkie talkies conform to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G for ruggedness and durability and are IP54/55 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal for operation in open or harsh environments.
