Here are some questions public safety and government agencies are curious to know about DiagnostX:
- What is DiagnostX?
DiagnostX is a touch-free, over-the-air radio waveform analyzer that monitors the performance of two-way radios on a land mobile radio (LMR) system to determine whether individual radios are functioning properly. It is non-intrusive to the radio network and analyzes radios 24/7/365 without user intervention.
- What are the benefits?
Studies show that 70% to 80% of two-way radios brought in for annual or preventive maintenance are operating within specifications. The ability DiagnostX has to identify out of specifications radios over-the-air translates into significant savings, and it allows for the proper working radios to stay out in the field where they are needed most.
- How is data collected?
DiagnostX monitors the radio’s inbound control channel messages to make an intelligent measurement of the waveform. A minimum of 12 transmissions will be collected to determine if there is a radio performance issue.
- What systems do I need to use DiagnostX?
DiagnostX functions with the following frequency bands: 900, 800, 700, UHF, VHF: and with the following protocols: P25 Trunked & P25 Conventional, DMR, NXDN, TRBO, and Legacy.
- What if a site/system has multiple bands?
DiagnostX has several models available for your specific needs, including multiple frequency bands and protocols.
