Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) is an open digital mobile radio standard defined in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSIEuropean Telecommunications Standards Institute. An independent, not-for-profit, standardization organization in the telecommunications industry in Europe, developing global telecommunications standards.) Standard TS 102 361 parts 1–4 and used in commercial products around the world. DMR, along with P25 and NXDN48 are the main competitor technologies in achieving 6.25 kHzKiloHertz (kHz) 10^3 Hz equivalent bandwidth using the proprietary AMBE+2 vocoder.

DMR and P25 Phase II both use two-slot TDMATime Division Multiple Access in a 12.5 kHzKiloHertz (kHz) 10^3 Hz channel, while NXDN48 uses discrete 6.25 kHzKiloHertz (kHz) 10^3 Hz channels using frequency division. DMR was designed with three tiers. DMR tiers I and II (conventional) were first published in 2005, and DMR tier III (trunked) was published in 2012, with manufacturers producing products within a few years of each publication. The primary goal of the standard is to specify a digital system with low complexity, low cost and interoperability across brands, so radio communications purchasers are not locked into a proprietary solution. In practice, many brands have not adhered to this open standard and have introduced proprietary features that make their product offerings non-interoperable.
