Mission-critical console producer Avtec has joined the Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Association, which represents many of the leading radio, console, and network suppliers.
"Becoming a member of the Digital Mobile Radio Association is part of Avtec's commitment to developing Internet-Protocol-based consoles built on open standards," said Michael Ridge, Avtec's director of product marketing. "As a category one member of the DMR Association, Avtec will participate in the working groups to further enhance the DMR standard and promote the standard to integrators and users worldwide."
Digital Mobile Radio is an open digital radio standard for professional mobile radio users developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). The DMR Association, which was founded in 2005, seeks to ensure that customers who purchase DMR technology gain value through the competition and choice derived from products built to an open multi-vendor standard.
"Avtec's support of the association at the highest membership tier demonstrates that they are listening to their customers who are investing in market-driven standards such as DMR," said Mario Micheli (of SELEX Elsag, Italy), chair of the DMR Association.
