Expert design for coverage and resilience
Tait has unrivaled expertise in designing Phase 2 upgradable trunked P25 systems that meet agency requirements, are fault tolerant and deliver optimal availability and coverage within agency budgets. Our engineers employ state-of-the-art coverage design tools to ensure optimized network configuration and verify network coverage.
Tait experts will plan your network's topology, eliminate single points of failure, integrate appropriate redundancy and design fall-back measures including; multiple backhaul options, power supplies, site equipment, additional console positions, and core network redundancy.
Robust, resilient P25 hardware
Tait P25 hardware is engineered to deliver robust products with exceptional performance, which allow the remote detection of failures and incorporates automatic fall-back modes to ensure maintenance of service. Tait P25 radios are tested to exceed military standards for durability and environmental protection. They deliver outstanding receiver sensitivity, selectivity and adjacent channel blocking to ensure uninterrupted audio clarity. Tait P25 base stations support advanced system monitoring and IP based management to ensure performance network issues are rapidly identified and addressed.
The Tait P25 platform has a range of redundancy and fall-back features including:
- Hot-standby for core network servers - A back-up server that mirrors the active network server.

Tait P25: Engineered to exceed public safety's expectations for network availability.
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.
