Tait Radio Communications, a global leader in providing radio solutions, has received several orders from public safety customers to top off a successful 12 months for Tait P25 solutions.
The contracts for counties and cities throughout the United States follow on from interoperability success that has seen Tait become Department of Homeland Security-certified under the P25 Compliance Assessment Program and accredited on several state-wide networks.
"Tait's ability to deliver turn-key solutions for public safety organizations has been an important part of these customers' decision to invest in Tait," says Steve Cragg, President of Tait Radio Communications, the Americas.
"The complexity of large communications purchases is reduced when working with an end-to-end solution provider. Tait supports the P25 standards and works with the best technology and local partners to provide a complete solution that offers long-term stability to a customer."Recent P25 public safety customers investing in Tait include:
In May 2009, Tait was among only four land mobile radio manufacturers to be named by the US federal government as having a recognized P25 Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP) laboratory.
Since then, Tait TP9100 portable radios and TM9100 mobile radios have been through rigorous and objective tests with several certified manufacturers. In October 2009, Tait/EADS hosted an interoperability event to allow other manufacturers' subscribers to be tested with Tait TB9100/EADS CORP25 infrastructure.
"The release of formal documentation (SDoCs and STRs) from these interoperability tests means city and county agencies using federal grants and taxpayers' money can demand CAP-certified P25 products for their solution. In addition to the compliance testing, several more states have approved Tait radios on their state-wide networks," concludes Steve.
