The Truth About Narrowband

PHASE OUT OF 25 kHz CHANNEL SPACING
Mobile Radio in New Zealand has traditionally operated in both the UHF and VHF Bands.

It has been announced by MBIE (Ministry of Business and Innovation) that the 25 kHz channels are to be terminated by the 1st November 2015. This will allow more spectrum efficiency and also a migration path for the new digital technology now available.

Both analogue and the new digital technology will continue to share the newly engineered spectrum space.

What does this mean for the user, must I move to the new digital systems?

No, not necessarily but there are many advantages available with new digital product.

Most modern equipment can be simply re-programmed to Narrow Bands. However aged equipment may be difficult to change and may require replacement.

If you are considering an upgrade then talk to us about the new digital product available and we will give you sound advice on your future options.
