Tait Radio Communications, a global leader in providing radio solutions, has been selected by energy production, transmission and distribution company Avista Utilities, headquartered in Spokane, Washington, to upgrade its radio communications system.

"Because Tait works with open standard technology, utility organizations can be assured that a solution with Tait is a long-term investment."
