Your Public Safety organization operates in a changing regulatory and funding environment. You need a mission critical radio platform designed from the ground up to meet those challenges. The standards-based Tait P25 platform has been engineered to give Public Safety agencies an unparalleled advantage in meeting their regulatory and funding challenges on spectrum efficiency, health and safety, and agency interoperability.
The Tait P25 platform offers:
- Software upgradability to Phase 2
- Fully compliant with TIA P25 standards
- Full narrowband capability
- Approved, market leading encryption
- Full CAP testing for interoperability & mutual aid
- A rich feature set to improve workforce Health & Safety
Public Safety agencies operate in a multi-layered compliance environment. Your radio system must comply with an evolving set of spectrum regulations, radio standards, federal regulations, privacy laws, health and safety rules and interoperability requirements. When purchasing a new radio system, Public Safety operators must select a platform that meets their current obligations and has the capacity to meet future requirements.
Safety in explosive atmospheres
As technologies and industries advance, exposure to hazardous materials and environments become more frequent, placing greater demands on the protection mechanisms we employ to keep workers safe. Intrinsically Safe (IS) Tait P25 portables are engineered to allow critical communications to be conducted in hazardous environments where use of non-IS radios would be potentially dangerous.
Tait Intrinsically Safe P25 portables meet IECEx and ATEX standards and are designed to operate safely in hazardous environments, ensuring your people have communications they can depend on while they get the job done.
Spectrally efficient Phase 1 and Phase 2 systems
Governments are driving Public Safety agencies to use radio spectrum more efficiently and regulators have established a range of narrowbanding and ultra-narrowbanding deadlines. Worldwide they are progressively consolidating Public Safety spectrum, often in return for broadband spectrum.
Public Safety radio managers need to make investment decisions that future proof their mission critical radio system. A Tait P25 platform is the prudent choice. The Tait P25 9100 Phase 1 system can provide 12.5kHz narrowband operation for agencies that currently require this. In addition, Tait 9400 P25 systems are software-upgradable to P25 Phase 2 and are based on TDMA hardware that is P25 Phase 2 type approved. This ensures that you can upgrade smoothly to Phase 2 when required.
Worker safety emergency features and expert coverage design
Your force put their lives on the line every day. Their safety is your primary concern. Your mission critical radio system must support current and all future health and safety requirements.
The Tait P25 platform is designed to keep your users safe with:
- Globally recognized Intrinsically Safe ratings: IECEx; ATEX; AEx; Class I, Zone 1; Class I; Div 2
- Market leading P25 coverage and availability
- Man Down
- Lone Worker
- Stealth emergency
- Covert microphone
- Emergency keys
- Remote disable for lost or stolen radios
- Integrated GPS
- End-to-end DES and AES encryption options
Genuinely standards based and interoperable
Agency interoperability is critical to the success of many Public Safety operations. Vendor interoperability is increasingly a criteria for government grant funding. The Tait P25 platform has been engineered to exceed your expectations of interoperability with full adherence to the P25 standards, including TIA 102. Tait P25 products and systems are Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP) tested to ensure they can be deployed seamlessly alongside other vendor's standard based products and systems in mutual-aid or multi-agency situations.
