DN495 with Tassta inside provides faultless coverage for Tour of Britain cycle race
Stage 2 of the Tour of Britain cycle race took place across a 183.9km course from Sherford to Exeter on Monday 6th of September
PAS Sound & Communications of Exeter hired Entel DN495 E-PoC radios to Devon County Council as a simple and cost effective solution to the council’s communications requirements during the event.
DN495 radios using Tassta’s T.Flex PoC app, are extremely robust and IP68 2-meters for 4-hours submersible making them ideal for use even in the most demanding conditions. Major benefits include the ability to be deployed instantly, almost anywhere, and without the need to install any infrastructure. DN495 radios also provide a virtually unlimited range and number of crystal clear, interference free, channels with exceptionally loud audio. DN495 is extremely cost effective and suitable for a system of any size from just two to several thousand users.
Jeremy Brimblecombe of PAS Sound & Communications said:
The DN495’s enabled radio users to keep in touch with race control at all times. That combined with the GPS based mapping feature provided an App based graphical representation of the course and the location of each road marshal and steward.
Tour of Britain finish manager, Peter Knight of Devon County Council was very pleased with the performance of the radios and had this to say:-
Devon County Council once again this summer hosted a stage of the Tour of Britain cycle race on Monday 6th September. As has been experienced in the past the event requires the coordination of 115miles of rolling road closure in addition to start and finish venue locations. Previously the event organisers have used independent radio communication networks for both the start and finish events and then mobile telephone calls to communicate with the race whilst along the route.
This year through early recommendation from Entel’s local distributor, PAS Sound & Communications ltd – it was identified that the Entel DN495 may provide a revolutionary step forward in the events communications. This digital handset would provide the platform for event control (based at the finish event) to be able to communicate with all areas of the event throughout its duration.
The Entel DN495 performed very well providing road marshals and stewards across the entire Devon route with vital information throughout the race.
As well as its impressive network capability the radios excellent audio quality enabled operatives to hear clearly above the background traffic noise to keep in touch with the progress of the race at each section across Devon. It was a perfect solution providing instantaneous back to back comms.
