Two-Way Radio Services

Two-Way Radio Services

The campus two-way radio system provides reliable, high-quality radio coverage on the MU campus. Two-way trunked radio service is an instant means of communication between staff, departments and emergency assistance.

The trunked radio system is designed with disaster recovery in mind; it will provide emergency voice communications in the event of a total telephone system failure.

Radios can be programmed for Talk Groups, a group of radios which appear as a private radio network even though they share a common radio system. Radios can be programmed with multiple talk groups. If necessary, these talk groups can be shared between departments.

Radios come equipped with one battery; additional batteries are available for purchase. (DoIT will replace the original battery at no charge if it fails within one month of acquiring service.) Radios must be returned with a working battery upon termination of the contract.

Departments may rent radios on a monthly or daily basis. Daily rentals are reserved on a first-come/first served basis and are subject to availability.

Two-way radio services incur a monthly access charge and lease for every radio. Additional fees (including third-party installation for vehicle installation) may be incurred.
