Energy and Utilities

Expediting the response when energy emergencies occur

Our range of specialist two-way radios for the energy and utilities industry enhance communication between personnel on the ground and in the control room, ensuring that network problems are identified and rectified as swiftly as possible before major disruption occurs.

Energy and utilities teams provide some of the most essential work in the Tanzania, upon which domestic and business customers depend. When crucial pipelines for electricity, gas, water, and telecommunications fail, a slow response impacts on wider health and safety and means that consumer demand cannot be met.

Many utility networks are dispersed across vast geographical distances, so it is crucial that communications solutions can deliver consistent and reliable service, even when emergency situations, such as power outages, render other communication channels ineffective. Without clear communication, energy teams are in danger of wasting time without knowing the bigger picture, resulting in extended downtime and a greater risk to wider public safety.


  • Instantaneous Communication

Unlike with modern mobile phones which require a stored or entered dialled number, communication through two-way radio is facilitated easily. With one touch, the receiver will hear this message instantaneously – meaning there is no requirement for them to accept the call on the other end, which increases the speed of communication hugely. In time critical environments in which a lot of two-way radios are utilised, this level and speed of communication is key.

  • Enhanced Communication Clarity

Seamless call clarity is a top priority for businesses as it limits misunderstanding of important operational details and maximizes the small window to make split-second decisions. This is something the best walkie-talkie models deliver tenfold. Unlike mobile communications that rely on service connection, portable radios eliminate the risk of low-quality calls from surrounding interference.

  • Minimal Service Reliance

As mentioned above, personal phones commonly rely on unpredictable service capabilities and as a result, connection issues are frequent. In emergency situations, the overloading of cellular networks can become a distinct possibility. Unlike landlines and mobiles, the use of portable radio frequency systems mean that two-way radios also offer huge flexibility advantages. The radio waves are transferred through the air and are highly adaptable, as they can be directed through reflection and retraction.

  • Highly Durable

Unlike mobile phones which are made slimline and often entirely of premium glass materials, two-way radios are built to last and to withstand industrial use.  The best walkie-talkie models such as the MOTOTRBO series from Motorola Solutions are also made with Ingress Protection (IP). This ensures that exposure to extreme temperatures, dust, drops from great heights and immersion in water poses no threat to the durable models. With two-way radios, communication, even in the toughest of environments, can still take place.

  • Cost Effective and Wide-Spread Communication

Whilst many phones come with limited warranty, two-way radios are also built to last for the long term. This means that in the long run they do not have to be replaced as frequently as mobile phones, and therefore save businesses cost in the long run. Not only this, but due to the use of radio frequencies, no monthly service payment is required to keep these models running.

  • Group Functionality

Due to the radio frequencies and signalling that two-way radios are based upon, multiple people can engage in a single conversation at one time. By programming a group of radios to the same frequencies, two-way radios facilitate group functionality, which is great for teams from a range of industries such as the military, the emergency services, security teams and even in schools and retail settings.

  • Mission Critical Usage

Unlike mobile phones, it is legal to use a two-way radio whilst you are driving – as long as you place proper focus on the road ahead of you. This is great for emergency services, for example, who need to make critical calls whilst driving at speed, and so require a model with these capabilities.Using two-way radios rather than mobiles on the roads eliminates a huge danger not only for the users of the radios, but also everyone using the roads at that time – providing a great alternative for these users.
