Several innovative solutions soon emerged, which were sold as OEM products to well-known names such as Philips, AEG/Matra, Marantz, Maxon and Kenwood. Rohill also partnered with National Semiconductor to design ASICs for the mobile communications market.
By the end of the 1980s, Rohill had expanded its activities into the international PMR market with the development and sales of its own range of products.
In 1990, Rohill introduced a state-of-the-art Modular Digital Trunking System (MDTS), which was based on the open signalling protocol MPT-1327. Currently, still over 150 MDTS trunked radio systems are operational around the world, proving the high reliability of this product. The MDTS was unquestionably an advanced solution at the time of its release. Since then, Rohill has remained at the forefront of PMR technology.
Rohill’s next-generation, digital TetraNode solution was the first to offer a multi-protocol capability, enabling a smooth, unhurried migration from legacy equipment. Capacity can be fine-tuned on a TetraNode network, making it scalable and a cost-effective solution from single-site to nationwide deployment. After the launch of TetraNode, Rohill decided to further specialize in system infrastructure and system-related solutions. Rohill’s adherence to commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software and open standards has proven to be of particular value to governments and industrial users. They can source radio units and other components from multiple suppliers, allowing greater choice and guaranteeing availability of system parts in the future. With more than 40 years of experience in the industry, Rohill has earned the respect of the professional radio communications market and has gained an excellent international reputation for providing specialized networks and solutions.
