MOTOTRBO Simple connection

Direct mode Simple Connection 2

Simple connection

The factory on Commercial Road has a bright future, but currently it’s only a single small facility. The workers use MOTOTRBO in Direct Mode to coordinate their activities. The loading dock can call the foreman when parts have arrived, and the factory manager can call down to the shop floor to prioritize an urgent order.

All MOTOTRBO radios have the capability to connect direct: radio-to-radio, for basic voice, data, text and applications support. But this approach has limitations. For your workforce to communicate, every radio needs to be in range of every other radio. That's not easy when one of your workers is in the basement, and another is out serving a customer.

For a professional solution, you should consider the many system options that MOTOTRBO offers. From affordable conventional systems for the small and medium business to enormous trunked systems that can cover a whole country, MOTOTRBO gives you choices, and the graceful scalability to evolve your communications as your organization grows. 

 Dual Capacity Direct Mode

The DMR digital radio standard requires each channel to be split into 2 independent "timeslots". Typically, you can only use 1 of these timeslots unless you have a central timing reference such as a repeater.

But with the MOTOTRBO Dual Capacity Direct Mode feature, radios can synchronize with each other - so you can use the full channel capacity.
Two timeslots used independently without repeater Protocol adopted within ETSI DMR standard Radios automatically synchronise themselves Robust synchronisation propagated across entire system Transparent to radio user.

When channel availability is limited, you can use Extended Range Direct Mode to deliver the same great coverage using a single digital channel.


  • Dual Capacity Direct Mode (DCDM) is also known as 6.25 kHz Equivalence Direct Mode (6.25e DM)
  • DCDM provides additional spectral efficiency without requiring additional investment by supporting up to two simultaneous Direct Radio-to-Radio Mode subscriber calls within a 12.5kHz allocation of spectrum
  • Price sensitive customers, migrating from Analogue to Digital (TDMA) can move up to 2 Talk Paths, with 6.25e KHz Direct Mode (TDMA) without a repeater
  • Increases the total number of users supported in the 12.5 kHz bandwidth with no degradation in performance
  • DCDM Channels CAN be Included in Scan Lists along with 12.5kHz Digital, Analogue and Repeater channels


  • 0 Sites
  • 0 Repeaters
  • Up to 100 Radios (recommended)
