The article offers information on modern land mobile radio systems, along with its usage. It also examines the protocols used on packet-switched radio networks and the methods for managing bandwidth on those networks. It is said that the systems are packet-switched networks that contrast sharply with legacy systems using circuit-switched connections. Moreover, it is stressed that the management broadband capacity in a packet-based world requires a new mindset.
