What is the difference between Trunking and conventional Two Way Radios?
Trunking is a Radio Communication technique that makes communication easier, more efficient and cost effective. With conventional two way radio communication systems, users operate on separate radio frequencies / channels, sometimes exceeding the number of channels provided. With Trunking, the systems controls the channels and guides the users to a free channel.  Thus, Trunking allows a larger number of users to share a relatively smaller number of communication paths (trunks). Channel allocation happens automatically and is completely transparent to the users.

 

 

Voice and Data Communication

Voice communciation - between radios
Voice calls made between one radio user and another. In most instances all these calls would be within the same fleet. Should calls be required to be made between fleets, additional interfleet and interprefix codes will have to be entered.


Voice communciation - to telephone and cellular phones
Trunked radios can connect to a cellphone- or telephone network and vica versa through the PSTN network. Both shortform and longform access to as many as 24 PABX lines routed via 8 exchanges is provided for inbound and outbound traffic into the trunking network. PABX interconnect to customers are available.
