Hotels are among many businesses today that face
challenges in communicating effectively and securely
across groups of different people. This is largely due
to the use of incompatible communications systems
between operational teams. For example, a security team
that carries smartphones and who is contracted to work at
an event at a hotel could be working alongside personnel
using two-way radios.
Both parties using disparate systems that are
incompatible with each other can hinder effective and
efficient communications which could in turn contribute
to lower safety standards and operational efficiency levels.
Motorola Solutions has a solution designed to overcome
that challenge – WAVE Work Group Communications.
WAVE comprises a suite of solutions that deliver affordable,
instant and secure push-to-talk communications across an
entire organisation. It is designed with one goal in mind: to
build truly interoperable, flexible communications networks
so workers can communicate to anyone at anytime from
Contractors can download the application and connect to a secure user group to access
interoperable communications with management and other teams. Users can also be removed
from the group after their contract is completed. WAVE Work Group Communications enables
commercial organisations, including hotels, to keep the lines of communication open regardless
of the device a worker carries.
In hotel environments and many small-to-
medium-sized businesses there’s a growing
need to share information about daily operations
or significant events in real-time. Relaying
information quickly and securely can make all
the difference for work teams striving to reach
new levels of efficiency, productivity and safety.
As with many businesses, employees
in a typical hotel or pub environment are
likely to have access to a range of different
communications devices – from smartphones
to laptops, tablets, landlines and two-way
radios. That’s easy to see across the different
roles staff members hold. Security personnel
are accustomed to having reliable push-to-talk
communications via two-way radios, while
management team members are more likely
to carry smartphones and bar staff might have
access to a landline on the wall.
The problem is that different devices
operate on different networks, so in the past it
has been very challenging to connect two-way
radio communications to landline phones,
laptops and other devices.
However, the rampant growth in broadband-
based technologies is having a significant effect.
Communications technology has undergone
rapid advancement through new software and
applications – a development which is helping
to overcome age-old problems.
Technologies such as Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE are
breaking down barriers that once hindered
a two-way radio from communicating with a
smartphone. Smart applications are helping
to replicate the experience of radio users,
enabling a wide variety of devices to talk to one
another while being connected to the same
Where once the only solution was the costly
decision to build out an entire communications
network to support many users, it’s reassuring
to know that technology developments can
now provide reliable, seamless and affordable
ways for businesses to manage their long-term
