Costa Rica's largest electric utility chooses Tait P25 radios

Costa Rica’s largest electric utility, Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), has selected Tait Communications to provide genuine P25-compliant digital radios.

More than 1,800 Tait mobile and portable radios will be used primarily to support technical staff in ICE’s telecommunications department, as well as power and generation staff, who rely on critical communications to install and repair electricity lines.

Headquartered in San José, ICE is a state-owned electric utility that also provides telecommunications services including fixed-line and mobile telephony, internet and data communications services throughout Costa Rica.

Steve Cragg, President, Tait Communications Americas, says: “P25 open-standards technology means that organizations like ICE can unlock the benefits of multi-vendor interoperability while adding further value to their existing systems.”

“Our terminals were successfully tested and proven to be fully operational on ICE’s P25-compatible network, validating ICE’s partnership with Tait and our in-depth commitment to genuine P25 interoperability,” adds Steve.

Tait P25 terminals feature industry-leading digital audio clarity, superb build quality and the assurance of P25 Compliance Assessment Program-tested interoperability.

“For ICE, this means staff are now better connected, safer, and able to carry out their work more effectively.”
