Network Reliability

All of TWR’s paging facilities, including mountain top transmitters, are equipped with standby power. All sites have backup batteries and four key locations even have propane-based generators. Network testing is performed at 15-minute intervals every day of the week, including weekends! All transmitters in our local area are automatically monitored on a continuous basis so that we can quickly detect a fault of outage and make prompt repairs. This should be of the utmost importance to those in the medical field such as the Western Maryland Health System where paging reliability is a must. Many paging carriers do not go to the same extent or expense as TWR to ensure backup power on their transmitter sites. Simply put, TWR feels as though our customers are worth the extra effort because when the power is out, so is the paging coverage. We at TWR know how important it is to receive each and every page sent.
Local Support

TWR takes pride in the customer service we provide. We are able to offer local technical and customer service support. TWR has a local office with a staff that is prepared to provide on the spot service for your technical needs.
