Welcome to the website of the dPMR Association.

This group was established in 2007 to provide a forum for all interested parties who wished to support the latest digital PMR radio technology known as dPMR. The group currently includes radio manufacturers, chip manufacturers, protocol and software developers and systems developers. All these members have expressed the common aim of working together to ensure the success of dPMR.

One of the core requirements for success of any new technology is interoperability. The dPMR association will be active in ensuring an independant validation of interworking between dPMR products from different manufacturers and authorising the use of a specific dPMR logo for compliant equipment. These interoperability tests will also be based on ETSI standards.

MEMBERS - dPMR Association

Despite dPMR being European ETSI standards, our membership is derived from virtually all corners of the globe. These members are also major players in the radiocommunications industry so we can confidently look forward to the continued success of this new technology.
The dPMR Associationis open to any manufacturer, supplier, user group, administration, laboratory etc who also shares our aims for promoting narrowband FDMA technology. Such has been the interest that the group has virtually doubled in size in just over one years existence. Members Section

What is dPMR?

dPMR is digital radio protocol specifically targeting highly functional solutions by using low cost and low complexity technology. dPMR is a narrowband (6,25 kHz) FDMA technology that is 100% digital that offers many forms of voice and/or data applications.
The FDMA protocol specified in both TS102 490 and TS102 658 ETSI standards complies with the European Harmonised Standard EN301 166-2 for use in 6,25 kHz channels.

dPMR is an ETSI Standard... Why is this important?
ETSI standards could be described in general as being 'definitions and specifications for products and processes requiring repeated use'. They are certainly a set of rules for ensuring quality.

dPMR FAQ'S

Q1: What does “narrowband” really mean?
A1: This should probably be clarified before anything else. To keep things simple, narrowband in its current form would refer to the use of 12.5 kHz channels for two-way PMR/LMR radio communication. However, as 6.25 kHz technologies exist, these would be considered “ultra-narrowband” or “very narrowband”.

LATEST NEWS

Two new companies join the dPMR family.

"AOR, LTD" is a Japanese communications equipment manufacturer created in 1977. AOR is known as the leader of high quality and state-of-the-art communication equipment manufacture.

"GME" has recently increased its presence in the commercial radio sector, recognising dPMR as an important platform in the company’s domestic and global market aspirations. GME is a privately owned Australian company, established in 1959.


With eleven manufacturers providing interoperable equipment, dPMR is now in a league of its own in digital PMR.

The dPMR Association held its latest interoperability Testing Session on 18th April 2013 at the Headquarters of founder member JVC Kenwood in Shin Koyasu, Japan.
JVC Kenwood, Icom and Kirisun successfully completed the tests overseen by Derek Love, Chairman of the Technical Working Group of the dPMR Association.
