NOMADE mobile network - Digital radio communication



Innovative technology

The NOMAD Mobile Network uses telecommunications towers, VHF frequencies and the Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier III trunking protocol (radio communication via a network of sites with multiple interconnected repeaters), providing a solution midway between cell service and conventional radio. Defined by the European Telecommunications Standardization Institute (ETSI) and an association of 50 radio equipment manufacturers, the DMR open standard helps manufacturers produce compatible radios, infrastructure and applications. Each new version of the standard includes new features and functions, ensuring continued dynamic development of the technology and ongoing investment in the sector.

Thanks to the NOMAD Mobile Network, individuals, businesses and public utilities now have access to a reliable digital wireless communication solution in the remote regions and territories of eastern Quebec who are poorly served by the cellular network. Much more than a technological breakthrough, the network is truly a tool for economic and social development, helping ensure the safety of communities that will never again be cut off from the rest of the world.

The advanced technology offered by the network includes:

  • Innovative and featureful radio devices;
  • Flexible group, individual and telephone communications;
  • Options to improve worker safety;
  • Features specific to municipal requirements and public security;
  • Workforce and asset Geolocation capability;
  • Interaction with cell phones;
  • Data and telemetry integration;
  • Capable of extending range coverage to regions withouty main line power, at an affordable cost;
  • Extension of private radio networks.

A wide range of benefits

Ease of use

With their intuitive interface, the mobile and portable radios of the NOMAD Mobile Network are very easy to use. Just a quick training session is all users need to become familiar with all the advantages of these units.

Greater safety for NOMADE users

With implementation of the NOMAD Mobile Network, residents, vacationers and workers in remote areas are no longer cut off from the world. In addition, to protect users in potentially risky situations, the combination of a GPS locator and the “man down” and “lone worker” smart functions makes it possible to send an alert in case of a problem and to transmit messages to other radios or control applications. If the radio is not in its usual position, an alarm sounds after a pre-set period of time, and a message is sent to the designated recipient.

Increases efficiency and productivity

By providing businesses and public utilities a means of staying in communication with their employees at all times and tracking work progress, the NOMAD Mobile Network helps improve productivity.
