Originally aired: Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Pryme Radio Introduces 2011 Products

April 01, 2011  | 

Pryme Radio Products unveiled its newest technologies at the IWCE Las Vegas earlier this month that include two new additions to its PRYMEBLU line, a wireless push-to-talk (PTT) adapter and several solutions for high-noise environments.

The first addition to the PRYMEBLU line is a wireless Bluetooth push-to-talk adapter. The PRYMEBLU PTT can either be handheld, worn on a lanyard, or secured using a Velcro fastener (both lanyard and Velcro fastener come standard).

"Maybe you have a SWAT team member with a rifle in his hand and it's inconvenient for hit to push the PTT switch attached to his radio; he wants to keep his hands on his weapon while keying up the radio that's attached to his head," according to Dave George, president of Pryme Radio Products. "All he needs is a PTT controller that he can easily attach to virtually anywhere on his weapon."

For the second addition, Pryme improved on the Bluetooth adapter they debuted at last year's show, expanding compatibility to multiple major brands, as well as a Bluetooth adapter for mobile two-way radios. The PRYMEBLU BT-MOBILE adapter works with thousands of off-the-shelf consumer Bluetooth headsets, and stores paired connection to the wireless headset even if the radio is powered off or adapter is removed from the two-way radio.

"We've eliminated the impediments to adding Bluetooth to mobile radios, you don't have to go to a dealer and have him drill holes in your radio and run wires through the back," according to George. "The radio operator can just plug in the adapter into a cigarette jack, plug it into the front of their radio and, using a standard Bluetooth headset, he/she is hands free, which is much more safe."

Additionally, Pryme's New WTX-500 series wireless push-to-talk (PTT) adapter for two-way radios features a Quick Disconnect (QD) jack, and the wireless receiver enables you to activate the PTT function of your radio wirelessly. Furthermore, the compact PRYME PTT-4100W (included when purchasing any WTX-500 series) PTT Switch can be held in your hand or Velcro'd to your clothing, and is powered by a single, easily replaced, coin-cell battery (also included), providing up to two years of operation free of chargers.

"The Pryme QD (Quick Disconnect) product line was developed many years ago specifically for Police, Fire and other Public safety personnel to give them the ability to quickly disconnect their two-way radio from their Speaker Mics, Surveillance Kits, Throat Mics, etc.", said George. "The new WTX-500 series adapters combine Pryme's previous QD design allowing the use of all existing and future QD devices with Pryme's wireless PTT technology.  Now Public Safety personnel can choose the radio accessory that best suits their need and still have the convenience (and safety) of wireless PTT."

Lastly, Pryme introduced a number of solutions for high-noise and Hazmat environments-such as, music events and inside protective suits. Pryme's Bone Conduction wrap around headset features dual microphone elements that rest against the user's temples, allowing them to transmit audio directly from vibrations below the skin using advanced bone conduction technology-making Pryme one of very few companies that offers a product of this nature; and better still, the one truly affordable option.

"The new Pryme temple worn Bone Conducting headset offers a user-friendly solution to the problems presented by a high noise environment," according to George. "In contrast with some of our past solutions (namely our Throat Mic system), the BC headset generates and picks up sound directly to/from the users skull without blocking the users ears, and if very easy to put on and take off."
