dPMR Markets & Applications

Business and industry users have a basic need for flexible, efficient and cost effective communications systems. This was the fundamental reason for the development of the digital Private Mobile Radio (dPMR) standard by ETSI in 2007; to meet the requirement for a new, open, low-cost, simple to deploy and scalable radio communication system.
