Radio system owners need confidence that system upgrades will be completed smoothly, on time, on budget and without disruption to system availability. The Tait platforms are engineered to ensure smooth and seamless migration from your existing radio solution – with your critical communications uninterrupted.
True standards based technology
All Tait systems are designed to conform with the leading industry standards of P25, DMR, MPT, or conventional. If you have existing equipment you can have confidence that your new Tait system will deploy smoothly and will interoperate seamlessly with your equipment from other vendors built to the same standard.
Both Tait P25 and DMR terminals are multi-mode. They are capable of operating immediately on your old analog radio system and then moving onto your new network as it is activated. Multi-mode capability adds enormous flexibility to the roll-out of the P25 and DMR equipment.
Support for legacy equipment interfaces
Tait provides support for a wide range of legacy interfaces that can be used to connect existing third party equipment such as dispatch consoles, voice recorders, and applications to the new network. For a staged migration with continuity of service this is a vital aspect of managing cost and risk.
Lower network infrastructure costs
Tait aims for maximum reuse of your existing equipment and spectrum wherever possible. Ultra-narrowband technology such as DMR Tier 3 can also minimize infrastructure costs by providing two logical paths in one physical channel, reducing the need for duplexers and combiners. When compared with 6.25kHz FDMA technology, DMR Tier 3 only requires half of the site infrastructure equipment.
