Tait people have the industry–specific expertise and valuable knowledge you can count on. These white papers will provide you with an understanding of the leading technologies available, helping you make an informed decision when considering the right fit for your needs.
Being fully informed of available technologies is a key step in maximizing your future communications system investments. Discover that P25 is a truly ‘open’ standard; not proprietary to a single manufacturer and the flexibility of P25 – trunked, conventional and simulcast options are all available within the P25 standard as well as many other P25 facts.
Implementing a new trunked digital technology is desirable for many radio users but migrating a complete network from analog to digital can be an onerous task. Fortunately, when migrating from analogue to DMR there are many smooth migration strategies possible minimizing the cost of upgrade and maximizing the re-use of existing equipment. This white paper introduces migration planning principles that ensure your organization will not experience service interruption during network upgrade or migration transitions.
This paper provides a general view of DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) advantages, and provides a comparison with other technologies and standards that are currently available.
This positioning paper will provide a summarized comparison of the current digital technologies outlining the advantages and disadvantages for each of them. The technologies compared are DMR, dPMR, TETRA, TETRAPOL, P25, NXDN and Opensky.
Being adequately prepared and resourced when a disaster strikes can mean the difference between success and failure, between survival and loss of life. This white paper identifies and makes recommendations regarding the top priorities to prepare for and manage a significant event.
This paper specifies the testing criteria which the Tait P25 TP9100 portable radios had to exceed in the course of its development. It is intended for evaluators of communication solutions so that they can ask informed questions to their shortlisted manufacturers.
This guide provides utility organizations with a technical introduction to currently available open standard, digital technologies. For utility organizations seeking to replace existing networks, or considering an initial purchase of a communication solution using land mobile radio (LMR), this guide will seek to inform those decisions.
Many astute network operators – including those who do not identify lack of frequency as a challenge – choose trunked technologies because they understand the compelling network and workforce management benefits. This paper compares trunked to conventional radio technology at a high-level, in term of costs and operational benefits.
This paper provides technical information on currently available open standard, digital technologies. For organizations seeking to replace existing networks, or considering an initial purchase of a communication solution using land mobile radio (LMR), this paper will seek to inform those decisions.
This paper describes how a clearly-specified and well-designed AVL solution can improve your utilities business operation and provide increased return on your investment.
This white paper provides network operators some insight into how a System Engineer can design for network coverage that meets specific requirements. It addresses three basic techniques, which, used individually or in combination, can overcome geographical or urbanization influences, to increase coverage reliability. While this paper is especially relevant for the critical coverage requirements of Public Safety operators, the principles described are equally applicable for other sectors.
This white paper is for Public Safety agencies that are considering purchasing P25 equipment and who want to better understand the interoperability issues associated with their selection of equipment.

Over the last few years, an increasing amount of data is being transmitted to and from public transport vehicles. This white paper considers the benefits of voice communications in public transport operations.
Project 25 (P25) has delivered a mobile radio communications standard that meets the exacting needs of public safety users. It provides digital voice and data services in both trunked and conventional formats and offers superior communication solutions for public transport organizations.
Agencies looking to upgrade their radio communications network, perhaps because of narrow banding requirements, may find that they need to opt for a simulcast solution.
This free white paper discusses the advantages and limitations of P25 conventional, conventional simulcast, trunked and trunked simulcast systems, and provides readers with an objective overview to help them decide which P25 system meets their organizational needs.
In a world of hype, counter-claims, unquantified Business Plans and risky ventures surrounding the Smart Grid phenomenon, it is easy to overlook that today’s utility decision makers need practical solutions, not improbable schemes.
