Two-way radios and PoC radios both allow for instant communication between two or more individuals, but there are some key differences between them.
Two-way radios operate on radio frequencies and use a dedicated radio network or channel to communicate. They are commonly used in settings where reliable communication is critical, such as in emergency services, construction sites, and outdoor activities. Two-way radios require no monthly fees or internet connection, but their range is limited by the strength of their signal and the terrain.
On the other hand, PoC radios use cellular networks to transmit and receive voice communications. They work similarly to smartphones and allow users to communicate with each other over long distances without the need for a dedicated radio network. PoC radios are becoming increasingly popular in industries such as transportation, logistics, and security where widespread coverage is required. However, they require a monthly subscription to a cellular network provider, and their reliability can be affected by network coverage and internet connectivity issues.
