dPMR Mode 2

Conventional Repeater Mode    


This is the standard licenced PMR version that includes all base station and repeater functionality and allows interfaces via gateways (Telephone, IP etc) Mode 2 is part of the ETSI standard TS102 658.

In the dPMR Mode 2 level of functionality, repeaters and infrastructure are added. This brings extra functionality such as network interfaces which can be IP based or simply analogue. Coverage areas are greatly increased, even more so when multiple repeaters are used. Such multiple repeaters can be managed by dynamic channel selection or they can be co-channel wide area using that specific function from the dPMR Mode 2 protocol. Again, dPMR Mode 2 can offer all the basic functions of the Mode 1 protocol with the extra benefit of being able to interface beyond the wireless part of the network. IP connectivity will permit user groups to include PC based terminals from other offices, areas or even countries. The same interface could provide remote control of a base station or repeater from a fixed connection.
