Ease of use and creation of data applications - Benefits of DMR Radios | Talkpod

The end-to-end digital nature of DMR means that applications such as text messaging, GPS and telemetry can be easily added onto radio devices and systems. The DMR standard supports the transmission of IP data over the air enabling the easy development of standard applications.

The doubling of channel capacity that DMR implementations achieve is also key to adding data applications in parallel to the voice services.

An outstanding feature of DMR over other digital standards is the Application Interface Standard (AIS). This is a standardized data interface that enables the interconnection of DMR networks to other entities such as Control Rooms, Data Centres or other communication networks through an interoperable (manufacturer independent) protocol.
