Does this sound familiar?
You already know the benefits of two-way radio: speed, simplicity, efficiency. No dialling, no ringing – just rapid, efficient exchanges of information between groups of people. Two-way radio gets the job done.
But you also know the limitations of two-way radio: frustratingly short range, expensive infrastructure, complicated licensing and shockingly high costs – especially for short term events. Whatever you try, or however much you spend, you never seem to be able to talk to the people you need to reach.
When two-way radio lets you down, plan B is to use your mobile phone. Now you can talk to people, but it’s painfully inefficent. Having to pass the same message to multiple people one at a time is slow, while missed calls and engaged tones are frustrating. Co-ordinating a team response is impossible. And what happens when you don’t know someones number?
We saw the same problems happening again and again so we created Andromeda, the worlds first digital two-way radio system that works over the public 2G & 3G mobile phone networks.
With Andromeda you have all the efficiency benefits of two-way radio, combined with the comprehensive geographical coverage of the mobile phone networks. Communicate instantly regardless of distance while avoiding the huge cost of building infrastructure. You can even test Andromeda in advance; no surprises on the day. Plus your control room staff will thank you for the advanced features of our Windows-based dispatcher software such as GPS tracking, callsign display and voice recording.
Andromeda is a proven solution that is relied upon every day by people in all kinds of industries and events. In the words of our customers: Andromeda just works. Contact us today for a demonstration.

Head of Business, Quality & Compliance
“ Having used expensive Airwave products in the past, I can confidently say that the coverage provided using an Andromeda radio is superior, and at a fraction of the price. This is definitely the technology of the future, and we are glad to be some of the first to use it within the security industry.”
“ The ability to communicate seamlessly, without delay, with colleagues in both London and the Austrian Alps at the same time was invaluable to complete the job successfully.”
“ The feedback from our teams in the field is always very positive and the equipment provided has never let us down. I have every confidence in the service provided by Andromeda and would have no hesitation in recommending Andromeda to other organisations looking for a top class communications service.”
