Walkie Talkie Singapore: A guide for company to adopt walkie-talkie in Singapore

Traditional walkie-talkie may be ineffective in today's digital age when smartphones can be used as a walkie-talkie while also letting you manage anything with just one hand. Meanwhile, a traditional walkie-talkie costs less than a smartphone. This becomes a dilemma for some businesses, as they must choose between prioritising cost-effectiveness or investing in qualified walkie-talkies for the company's sustainability.


Here’s a simple guide for businesses of all sizes and various industries in Singapore to adopt walkie-talkie:

A. Is walkie-talkie legal in Singapore?

If you are wondering about the legality of using walkie-talkies in Singapore, the answer is yes; walkie-talkies are allowed and regulated by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). To use them legally, one must obtain a valid IMDA radio frequency license, operate IMDA-type-approved radio communication devices, and purchase these devices from a valid IMDA-licensed reseller.


Is Smartcom IMDA-licensed?

Yes, Smartcom is a reliable walkie-talkie distributor and provider in Singapore that holds an IMDA license. Trusted by 100+ companies in Singapore, Smartcom also works closely with Singapore’s largest telecommunication network provider.

B. Where to rent walkie-talkie in Singapore?

If you're looking for an island-wide walkie-talkie for the long or short term, Smartcom is what you need. Smartcom provides island-wide walkie-talkies from renowned brands such as Samsung, Hytera, Sonim, MOBILE and ECOM.

Why rent from Smartcom for your event?
