Second DMR Tier 3 interoperability certificate awarded to Tait
The Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Association has awarded a second interoperability certificate to Tait Communications following formal standardized testing of Tait DMR Tier 3 terminals.
Earlier this year, Tait was awarded the world’s first DMR Tier 3 interoperability certificate for its Tier 3 infrastructure equipment, meaning that organizations could, for the first time, choose a provider with genuine certification.
John Graham, Solutions Marketing Manager, Tait Communications, says: “The latest interoperability certification of Tait DMR Tier 3 terminals further underscores our long-held commitment to providing genuine, end-to-end open-standards solutions for our customers.
“Organizations and personnel who depend on interoperable critical communications to carry out their work safely and efficiently can be assured that Tait DMR Tier 3 equipment is fully interoperable with equally certified equipment from other vendors.”
Tait is committed to open-standards technology and its DMR solution is no exception. Tait DMR is built on the proven MPT 1327 trunking architecture and designed to be fully compliant with the Digital Mobile Radio open standards defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute.
Tom Mockridge, chair of the DMR Association Technical Working Group, comments:
“Announcement of the interoperability tests for both Tier 2 and Tier 3 products demonstrates the commitment of the radio industry to DMR as the digital technology of choice for professional users, and the leading role DMR products are playing in the marketplace.
“The success of DMR is based on the technology’s strengths of ease of migration from analogue, more effective use of spectrum, efficient use of infrastructure compared to FDMA, and the flexible and innovative features available from a two-slot TDMA approach.”
