    The 800M trunked communication system, featured by sharing resources, charges and communication channel equipment, is a multi-functional and highly efficient wireless dispatch communication system, with PTT as its calling form. It collectively controls and manages the communication channels and then dynamically distributes them to users.

    As the world's most advanced technology of its kind, it enjoys absolute advantages in coverage rate, frequency use ratio, interference immunity and security.
