P25 Simulcast Radio Network

Tait P25 simulcast solutions – conventional and trunked – combine knowledgeable staff with intelligent Tait base stations/repeaters, and you can reduce installation costs, maintenance burdens and site storage. Tait simulcast networks require fewer frequencies, provide superior coverage and deliver seamless voting you can rely on. Licensable software features such as the simulcast controller, centralized voting and IP functionality are built into the Tait base station/repeater eliminating the need for additional external equipment, while delivering redundancy options. The built-in functionality reduces capital costs because less equipment is required initially and upgrades can be managed without visiting the site.

Using either Tait P25 Phase 1 TB9100 base station/repeater or the Tait P25 TB9400 Phase 2 (upgradable) base station/repeater as the network's transceivers, our experienced engineers draw upon industry-recognized TSB-88 based prediction modeling methodology and intelligent GPS modeling to design a simulcast system that delivers the ultimate in redundancy. With Tait's P25 simulcast solution, several sites can utilize central voting to reduce the risk of network failure and ensure network reliability.

Linear Simulcast Modulation (LSM)
Used with the TB9400, Tait can also provide trunked LSM which allows better performance in the cross-over zones of a simulcast system, and the increase in performance results in greater site separation (fewer sites required) and reduced costs.
