What makes a Smartradio Smart?
In a nutshell, a smartradio is a device that lets you communicate effectively with coworkers using features typically found on a computer or cellphone.

How do you install radio applications?
Installing radio applications is slightly more complex than downloading an app from the App Store. With the aid of your radio network provider, a server loaded with the application software is installed on the radio network. Connected via Ethernet or control stations, the server ties the radio network into your organization’s supplementary structures such as the telephone network (PBX), email, building management and alarm systems. For certain applications, additional software may be loaded onto the radios themselves for enhanced functionality.
