As wireless communication solutions are constantly evolving, it’s a challenge to keep up with the latest and greatest devices and functionality. While it would be impossible to keep up with every update or product that’s made available, it is worthwhile to conduct an occasional appraisal of your existing systems -- and your current challenges -- to see if a boost, replacement or new investment makes sense.To help with your once-over of your equipment, systems and challenges, here are five core wireless communication solutions to keep in mind that you may need to deploy, upgrade or replace. (Bonus: Check out our latest video, below, to find out how Chicago Communications helps companies and agencies meet their comprehensive communications needs.)

It's a question pondered by job seekers, trainees, and seasoned businesspeople alike—not to mention customers themselves: "What does customer service mean to you?"
At Chicago Communications, we're in a good position to define great customer service skills, because our clients work in some of the most high-pressure customer service situations: they're first responders, educators, manufacturers, hotel and hospital workers, and more.
For many of them, providing good customer service means making a critical difference when it matters most, whether they're saving a life, teaching a child to read, building a product that consumers can depend on, or providing a weary traveler with comfortable accommodations.

- Analog Radio from Motorola
- Digital Radio from Motorola
- Digital Radio from Hytera
- Unlicensed Digital Radios from Motorola
I stopped to think about this. The School District has no money, four incompatible radios and the need to provide safety, maintenance and transportation for students and faculty. The question immediately turned into why didn’t the retailer advise the customer of the problems of purchasing a disparate systems?

If you’ve received anything from us lately, or checked out our web site, you may have noticed a slight change with our logo. Instead of just our logo, you now will see that added underneath our logo is the statement, “We create the infrastructure behind mobility.” Why this change? Because we felt those six words pretty much sum up who we are and what we do.

Have you ever gone to use something at home only to find out it doesn’t work? And then, when you mention to your family members that it isn’t working they look at you very matter-of-factly and tell you it’s been broken for a while? Ugh! The frustration!

Memorial Day is upon us! While this weekend marks a time of beautiful weather, backyard football, delicious food, and time with loved ones, it also serves as a reminder of the tremendous men and women who have served, and continue to serve, our country.
While we typically enjoy educating you all on radio communications, we wanted to use this platform as an opportunity to share some interesting facts about the start-of-summer holiday, and take time to acknowledge the courageous members of the military in our lives.
Before that, here are some interesting things about Memorial Day that you may not know!

Chicago Communications, LLC sponsors many different types of events throughout the year. We sponsor runs, festivals, trade show venues, picnics, and believe it or not, snowmobile racing. Yes, snowmobile racing, also known as Snocross.
What is Snocross? Snocross is a sport involving racing specialized high performance snowmobiles on natural or artificially-made tracks consisting of tight turns, banked corners, steep jumps and obstacles. Riders race at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. Now you might be wondering ….. do they actually race in Illinois? While there are tracks all over the country – New York, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Michigan -- the southern-most snocross track in the country is, yes, located in Illinois – Wauconda, Illinois to be exact. Races take place pretty much every weekend from December to March, and as you might expect to coordinate practices and race days takes a village. It also requires two-way radios.

On December 6th look for Santa and Local 2 Firefighters riding through the streets of the city’s South Side collecting donations for Catholic Charities. Kids and parents alike will be braving the cold to donate toys to Local 2’s 16th Annual Toy Parade. Local 2 is comprised of 5000 members that work for the Chicago fire department. Retired Captain George Rabiela, tells me the toy drive was started by a fireman named Tim O'Brien approximately 15 years ago. I asked Captain Rabiela how he got involved, “They asked me to bring my 1965 Mack engine which seats 24 people to transport people to the parade. I have been doing it for the last eight years maybe longer.”

This veteran's day we'd like to take the time to pause and thank our Veterans! Let's salute and honor those for being American soldiers, Marines, and sailors, and Coast Guard members, and National Guard members — all those who have served and currently still serve our country—for we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in serving to keep our freedom intact.
