Understanding the Advantages of dBD Communications Wireless Products for the Ground Handling IndustryPosted 15/07/19
dBD Communications manufacture and supply wireless duplex communication products and have over 70% of the market share for wireless communications within the UK rail infrastructure. It was recognised that there were similarities within the construction highways and civils markets and with technology advancements within the ground handling environment, it was time to start expanding into new business areas.
In 2011, dBD Communications received Network Rail Product Approval on their wireless duplex communication systems. 8 years on, and the business is still working with and supporting the industry, with both existing and new customers.
Since this time, the product portfolio of the Athena and Apollo systems have vastly developed. Recently, McCulloch Rail returned a 7 year old Athena system. These headsets only needed minor replacements such as mic muffs and ear cups with one headset requiring a new volume dial. Also, on inspection it was found that these systems held over 28 hours of battery life when fully charged. This, therefore proves the robustness and reliability of the duplex communication systems.
