What is land mobile radio (LMR)?

A land mobile radio (LMR) system is a person-to-person voice communication system consisting of two-way radio transceivers which can be mobile, installed in vehicles or portable walkie talkies. Many industries use LMR as their primary means of communication, especially when located in the same geographic location. ESChat can be used to augment existing LMR infrastructures, or in some cases, replace it completely.

What type of talk group types are available with ESChat?

ESChat supports multiple talk group types, each of which are customized to meet specific needs. These include:

  • Personal groups (group size limit is 250): created by a user and only visible from the creator’s group list.

  • Enterprise closed groups (group size limit is 250): created through the administration portal; the owner of the group must add members.  
  • Surveillance groups (group size limit is 250): Long-lasting group with special features specific to law enforcement that mimics a traditional radio channel.
