A New Generation of Radio Fleet Management

Quickly and easily maintain your fleet of radios and update your radio software with Armada, the industry’s first fleet management and programming software with the most intuitive user interface.

Armada introduces the concept of templates to fleet management. Each user group is able to develop a single profile for its specific agency and designate it as a template. The template is linked to the selected agency’s radio profiles and then as necessary, Armada will download this information into the Viking radio. Programming changes to agency radios only requires an update of the template instead of updating each radio profile. You can also copy and paste an existing template to create new radio profiles for additional agencies.

Managing your assets is of the utmost importance; KENWOOD Solution Developers provide numerous options for mobile positioning and the ability to easily and accurately pinpoint the location of a mobile caller or vehicle in transit.

These location-based services are used for emergency purposes as well as enhanced business application such as location-sensitive billing, traffic updates, fleet management and asset & people tracking.

KENWOOD Solution Developers offer a wide array of Dispatch and Console solutions; from low to high tier and non-mission-critical to mission-critical solutions.

From Intelligent UI's, advanced tools and Network Health Monitors to simple desktop consoles, the KENWOOD Solution Developer program ensures you will find the perfect solution for your organization's needs, ensuring the highest levels of interoperability, scalability and usability.

Software designed specifically to log, and in some instances control, everything that may happen over a private radio network. KENWOOD Solution Developers offer completely customizable Event Logging applications to log information such as PTT, status updates, auto transmitting, emergency signals to more advanced logging capabilities such as the engine data of a vehicle (including speed, location, direction, operational duration, temperature, fuel consumption, RPM and odometer) and operator logs to track hours worked and productivity.

Dedicated Voice Recording solutions can be used in mission-critical or non-mission-critical scenarios to log individual or group voice traffic in a NEXEDGE® trunked radio system. Recorded voice can be played back and/or stored on different media such as hard drives or CD-ROM/DVD.

KENWOOD Solution Developers offer the ability to connect a network to other radio systems, VOIP, Satellite or Cellular technologies.

For example, not all individuals within an organization would be required to carry a radio; however, in many situations it would be ideal that executives are able to remotely monitor the health and status of a radio network and daily operations. This is made possible by connecting your smartphone to a radio network.

Other solutions include access to telephone systems, such as PABX, PSTN, or cross system connections into a different radio technology altogether.

Messaging Solutions
There are a number of Messaging Solutions available through select KENWOOD Solution Developers that would allow features such as sending email to radio, text message to radio, etc.

A Clearer Path to Noise Reduction

To clearly hear the words being transmitted is expected, but to be able to hear the tone of the voice and recognize distress immediately is a true advantage. TrueVoice software-based noise cancellation works in analog or digital mode, eliminates the need for programming noise profiles, and works with any accessory.

Because it is software-based, TrueVoice noise cancellation is standard in both KENWOOD Viking portable and mobile radios.

Take Control of Your Radio Software

Before today, every time you purchased a P25 land mobile radio you paid for the hardware plus all the software options. In some cases, the software options alone exceed 70% of the radio price. This buying model is outdated, and we think it’s time the LMR market catches up to the rest of the consumer market. That’s why we introduced the industry’s first subscriber radio perpetual software license program, which transforms the way you purchase your radios and adds greater value by extending the life of the software into your next hardware platform - you own the software option forever. And your licenses are easy to manage with Vault™, our cloud-based asset management tool.
