Crowd management, support and security

Walkie-talkie hire is a cost-effective way to manage large-participation events, allowing organisers and medical teams to keep large numbers of participants and spectators safe and respond effectively to any issue that may arise.

Making sure you get the most appropriate equipment 

To make sure that you’ll get the coverage you need from your hired radios, we’ll find out whether your  event is being held indoors or outdoors, the terrain, the distance the radios need to cover etc., so we can supply you with the most appropriate, high quality digital radio equipment possible.

Hiring Push-toTalk over Cellular (PoC) radio equipment

One portable radio hire solution that's particularly suitable for some events, as well as users that aren't familiar with traditional walkie talkies, is push-to-talk over cellular (PoC) radios. PoC radios work a little differently from traditional two-way radios, but we believe they are the way ahead, so much so that we have developed our own push-to-talk over cellular platform, called Connect Plus.

Rather than operating on radio frequencies, PoC radios communicate reliably using the existing nationwide 3G and 4G networks via roaming SIMs, just like mobile phones. They can also operate through your own Wi-Fi on-site, for smaller events.  A wide range of PoC-compatible devices are available, but we'd highly recommend hiring the the RugGear RG360.

Radio hire for long-distance events

Because of the way they work, PoC radios don't need radio repeaters to obtain the required coverage over long distances and varying terrain.  This makes them really useful for long distance sporting events such as road races or cycling events in both urban and rural areas.

If you're in a hurry...

Event management is a full-on job, so if it's slipped your mind to organise radio hire, or you need extra handsets at the last minute, don't worry. The other great benefit of our Connect Plus platform is that there's an "App Only" version that users can simply download to their existing IOS, Android or Windows phone. Users can then log into the system to communicate with the rest of the team, as if they were using a traditional two-way radio.
