Digital NEXEDGE® NXDN, dPMR, DMR, ATEX, dPMR446, DECT radios and systems

Kenwood entered the professional two-way market in 1978 and in 2001 released its first digital two-way radio transceiver operating on the P25 protocol.


By 2008, having jointly developed the NXDN™ digital protocol, Kenwood launched the NEXEDGE® advanced digital two-way radio system winning the prestigious Federation of Communications Services Gerald David OBE Innovation in Business Radio Award in 2010.


To date, there are over 2 million NEXEDGE® and NEXEDGE® ATEX certified devices in use with thousands of customers across hundreds of applications, from Mission Critical Public Safety to Business & Industry in over 160 countries.

Innovative multi-protocol solutions

In line with its technology and protocol neutral stance, Kenwood's digital line-up has been significantly expanded and now includes the revolutionary, NX-5000 Series which brings dual FDMA and TDMA technology, multi-protocol DMR, NEXEDGE NXDN capability and unsurpassed interoperability to a wide variety of applications as it supports analogue FM and two different digital protocols concurrently in a single radio.


The NX-3000 Series takes many of the advanced features and capabilities of the mission critical NX-5000 Series to business and commercial users in a cost-effective, multi-protocol radio in either DMR plus FM Analogue or NEXEDGE NXDN plus FM Analogue configurations; which makes the NX-3000 Series an ideal solution for those migrating from analogue to digital as users can switch to and from DMR + FM Analogue or NXDN (trunking and conventional) + FM Analogue operation at any time as their needs evolve or change over time.
