Analog Digital Auto Switch
RD98XS series repeaters can support mixed channel mode to detect receiving signal, then automatically switch between analog mode and digital mode. Offers an easy way to migrate to digital from analog.

IP Multi-site Connection
Multiple RD98XS series repeaters can be simply connected together by an IP network, both in analog and digital modes, providing a cost-effective solution for the users to deploy a large coverage communication network across multiple places.

Addable Applications
Hytera offers multifarious applications to enrich functionality for RD98XS series repeaters. SmartDispatch or SmartOne for dispatching, OTAP for remote programming terminals. Besides, open API can be provided for third party development.

High-efficiency Technology
Based on TDMA digital technology, one RD98XS series repeater can provide 2 voice channels simultaneously, double the capacity without extra frequency and facility, and simply help the users improve the efficiency.

Smart Network Management
Hytera delivers XNMS as the professional network
management platform for RD98XS series repeaters. The XNMS can remotely monitor services, configure parameters, and export statistics report for network diagnosis.

SIP Phone Interconnection
Based on SIP protocol standard, the RD98XS series repeaters can be connected with IPPBX to realize the real-time communications between the two-way radios and telephones, such as PSTN phones, VoIP phones and mobile phones.

Back To Back Solution
RD98XS series repeaters can realize cross-band and crosssystem communication in DMRTler 2 through Hytera Back to Back Solution. When connected to Hytera mobile radios, RD98XS series repeaters can also provide wireless connection between two systems when there is no IP link.

RD98XS 100W High Power Repeater

The RD98XS 100W is designed to maximum ensure your coverage needs, whether your workplace is inside the crowded cities or outside in the wilds, no matter it is a single building or multiple places across regions.The RD98XS 100W can help eliminate signal blind areas and enlarge the communication range, continuously providing you with reliable voice and data communication coverage. What's more, its compact structural design offers an easy way for installation.

RD98XS 100W Highlights

Wide Coverage
With 100W transmit power output, RD98XS_100W can dramatically enlarge your communication range, provide a huge area coverage while reducing your network investment. And the Ethernet port enables the access of IP network, which provides the capability for RD98XS_100W to connect everyone everywhere.

User Friendly
Thanks to the high-resolution display, programmable buttons and clear LED indicators, the RD98X series repeater is extremely easy to use, whether during ongoing operations, or during maintenance tasks.

Compact Design
Though integrated with the built-in high power amplifier, RD98XS_100W still remains the compact 2U height structural design, which is very easy and flexible to install in different cabinets, and reduces numerous concerns for installation.

High Cooling Capacity
The power amplifier can dissipate most generated heat with extraordinary efficiency. In addition, the integrated fan system ensures stable and powerful operation.

Smooth Migration With Your Business Growing

Your communication needs are always growing together with the business expansion. As the organization becomes larger and larger with more and more employees, you are looking forward to upgrading for your communication system, increasing capacity, and deploying more sites to ensure your working efficiency.

The RD98X series repeaters can be compatible with most Hytera system types: Analog Conventional ModefSingle and IP Multi-site Connection), DMR Conventional Mode, Hytera Extended Pseudo Trunking, DMR Simulcast System, DMRTrunking Lite. Whether you want to migrate from analog to digital, or switch to a large capacity trunking system, the RD98XS series repeaters can be unlocked with a chargeable license. Simple, Smooth, and Cost-effective.

Simple, Smooth, and Cost-effective

RD98XS Migration

Hytera XPT System

Simple, Cost-effective, and Scalable
The XPT is a hugely cost-efficient, and easily expandable mobile radio solution from Hytera. Based on proven repeater technology, XPT can be developed as a distributed trunked radio system with increased capacity, and without controller node and dedicated control channel for demanding users.

Hytera Simulcast System

Wide Area Communications
The Hytera DS-6310 Simulcast system is based on the open DMR Tier II standard. It broadcasts the same signal across multiple overlapping sites on the same frequency, simultaneously, which makes it possible to inexpensively expand large-area radio coverage with just one frequency pair.

DMR Trunking Lite

Sophisticated Communication Management
Based on the DMRTier III standard, a Hytera Trunking Lite(DS-6211) system can tackle high radio traffic, maximizing available capacity across dynamic user groups and challenging single or multi-site geographies, and delivering expansive feature set to ensure your current and future communications requirements.

Upgrade to DMR Trunking Transceiver

Open Standard
DMR Trunking Lite is based on DMR tier III standard, defined by ETSI in 2005, which is a digital radio standard for professional radio users. With dedicated control channel, DMR Trunking Lite can achieve versatile functions.

Smooth Migration
DMRTrunking Lite transceiver supports smooth migration from analog to digital, from conventional to trunking. Multi-modes provide you different choices for continual investment.

Integrated RF System
Intergrated 2-carrier RF system, significantly reduces the space and cost for divider, combiner and duplexer.

Non-centralilzed Structure Design
Non-centralized structure is only used for less than 5 base stations.
It will ensure a cost-effective and flexible networking especially suited to small scale networks.

Smooth Roaming and Handover
In a simulcast system, the radio is capable of roaming and handover seamlessly between different BSs, the ongoing communication can continue normally during handover.

Dynamic Voting
Simulcast system can provide good voice performance in overlap area as radios in overlap area can always receive the best voice frame through dynamic voting. As a voting center, MSO is used to analyze each voice frame received from Base Stations in real time. The best voice frame will be extracted and sent to radios.

Analog/Digital Self-adaptive
Simulcast Base Station channels support working both in analog and digital mode, ensuring smooth migration from analog to digital network. Digital or analog mode is automatically selected based on the incoming signals.

Smart Subnetting and Patching
According to management requirements, DMR simulcast system can be divided into different subnets by Base Station or by time slot of channel unit in each Base Station. Each subnet can work as a independent simulcast system.
Different subnets can be patched to make a larger subnet temporarily according to the requirements.
