The Simoco Xd SDM730 is a digital mobile radio terminal capable of operating across multiple modes, including analogue conventional, digital conventional (DMR Tier II), and digital trunking (DMR Tier III).

Best in class sensitivity ensures crystal-clear communications in fringe areas and harsh environments while features including full duplex calling capabilities, allow for enhanced communications between office and field staff. Additional features include a large TFT Screen, Bluetooth functionality, GPS and a rich Application Programming Interface (API) capable of delivering third party applications into the hands of your operational teams.

The SDM730’s ability to allow the user to operate across a variety of network signature modes means it is not only a safe and future-proof investment, but also provides a cost effective and flexible migration path for organisations managing the transition from analogue to DMR digital.
