If without these radio, we will be facing some lack of communication, from train driver cannot communicate with operation center, and the operation center cannot communicate with the station stop. We will be facing a lot of difficulties if we don't have good radio. Another reason that we select Hytera is because interoperability must be good enough… …
Honestly speaking, so far personally I am satisfied with Hytera for the technical support. It is very good for our project as we can go directly and coordinate with Hytera, our manufacturer
