What is Radio Over IP (RoIP)?

Radio Over IP

Businesses that have radio over IP are able to send and receive digital information, both voice and data information, by using existing IP (Internet Protocol) infrastructure. In fact, there are currently gateways on the market that enable digital and analog transceivers to interface with local and wide area networks.

Why Consider RoIP for Your Business?

There are many reasons radio over IP is a good idea for businesses. Not the least of which are the facts that it offers a lower operating cost opportunity for businesses to enjoy reliable communication, improved efficiency, and greater overall productivity.

No matter what industry your business operates in, communications between staff members, people in the field, and workers in your office is the lifeblood that keeps your business operating at maximum efficiency. The one thing you can do that will increase output, productivity, and, as a result, profits, is improve your communications capabilities. Making the shift to RoIP can help you do just that.

How Does RoIP Work?

It works a lot like VoIP does for phones. 10 to 15 years ago, few people had heard of, much less used voice over Internet protocol (VoIP). Today, thanks to companies like Vonage and Google Voice, VoIP is practically a household name.

Radio over IP works in a similar fashion. The difference is that you’re using two-way radios for communications through IP instead of regular handheld telephones through the use of a Radio Over IP Gateway Router. It helps you to bridge the gap between PTT and LMR. It can interconnect PTT devices and 2-way radio users to bridge two-way radio systems across channels.

While the manner of communication is different, what you essentially need to know is that RoIP allows your two-way radios to operate as efficiently as they should. Users will use their radios just as they would if you were paying much higher prices for other types of services that are available today to deliver air time. The radios have the same range of functionality they otherwise would, and your organization pays considerably less for the opportunity to put those radios to use for the day-to-day operation of your business.

Ultimately, you get the benefit of a stable push to talk infrastructure for your business that allows instant access to group and individual communication with a gateway that takes less than 10 minutes to install.
