Leading communications and networks provider, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced a deal with Dundrum Town Centre for the supply and configuration of a two-way radio communications system for the site.
As Ireland’s largest shopping centre with over 140 shops, restaurants and 3,400 parking spaces, the communications system will be used to manage the various contractors on site, as the centre continues to expand and develop.
Based on Motorola technology, EMR recommended upgrading the existing system to the new Motorola MOTOTRBO digital radio system to provide the extended radio system coverage throughout the centre.
Commenting on the project, Eddie Ingle, security manager, with Dundrum Town Centre said:
“EMR supplied the initial radio system and when we expanded the centre buildings they helped to recommend a solution to address the black spot coverage issues. The MOTOTRBO digital radio system upgrade solution has been a tremendous success. The digital audio quality from the radio handsets is superb even in the high noise public mall areas. The Impres battery technology has reduced any of the previous battery duration and charging issues. We are extremely impressed by this system and value the service provided by EMR to Dundrum Town Centre.”
Several Motorola DR3000 system repeaters were commissioned to the existing specialist combining infrastructure and dispersed antenna systems throughout the complex. Utilising the new digital transmission system the result was an immediate signal improvement to all of the operational areas throughout the complex. All of the black spot areas unreachable by the older analogue system were now fully covered by this new digital system.
Further advantages of this digital upgrade provided enhanced off-site coverage levels extending to the old Dundrum shopping centre. As both the car park and cleaning contractors carry out duties within this location this new system allowed staff in both site locations to remain in contact at all times. The benefits of this additional coverage enhanced the daily safety and support levels to the staff in this remote location providing further value and efficiency from this digital system upgrade.
