Swissphone announced RACOM of Marshalltown, Iowa, as the first certified digital paging solution DiCal partner for the U.S. market. Both RACOM and Swissphone will offer affordable paging solutions for firefighters and EMS in the United States.

“RACOM, with its expertise in system design, installation and support of mission-critical communications solutions, is a perfect partner for Swissphone,” said Marco A. Stadler, managing director of North America and chief marketing officer (CMO) of Swissphone.

The DiCal digital paging solution includes a network design that is specifically engineered for the indoor coverage needs of full-time and volunteer firefighters and EMS. Swissphone developed a system design that uses more sites positioned at lower heights for greater in-building penetration. In addition, a wired backhaul is not required from every site location.

This enables sites to be placed wherever they are needed, which results in an affordable design that provides better coverage with geographical overlapping among sites. Also with this design, greater redundancy is possible if a site is temporarily down. Digital signaling is faster and shaves valuable seconds off response times when it really counts. In addition, text-to-speech technology enables the firefighters and EMS to hear the alerts.

"Everyone who has incorporated narrowband into their paging solution has experienced a dramatic reduction in coverage and reliability. Firefighters and EMS are finding the results to be unacceptable," said Stadler.
