The remarkable Multi-Protocol NEXEDGE® NX-5000 and NX-3000 Series

Designed specifically for mission critical users, the NX-5000 Series hand portable walkie-talkies and mobiles offer users the ability to communicate in analogue, NXDN, DMR and P25 formats providing unsurpassed interoperability when it matters most alongside a host of user safety features. An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s NXDN (FDMA), DMR, P25 Phase 2 (TDMA) or FM Analogue – and transmits in the same mode received.


NX-5000 Series 2-way communications


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 + FM Analogue operation at any time as their needs evolve or change over time.
