Las Vegas, March 28, 2017: Futurecom Systems Group, ULC today announced the latest addition to their RF coverage solution portfolio, the PDR8000 - Portable Digital Repeater. Designed for Federal or other public safety agencies whose duties extend beyond traditional fixed RF coverage areas, the PDR8000 provides local on-scene P25 coverage and a V.24 wireline connection allowing connectivity to Motorola Solutions Inc. dispatch consoles anywhere in the world.
The PDR8000 was built with special ops and security detail teams in mind, with a lightweight transportable case weighting less than 28 lbs. and is suited for discreet travel.
