Tait to showcase P25 Phase 2 solution

Tait Communications will showcase its latest P25 solutions at the annual APCO Conference and Expo in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with the unveiling of its Phase 2-upgradeable TDMA portfolio.

Attendees at the conference, which begins Sunday, will be able to participate in demonstrations of the TN9400 core network, TB9400 base station, TP9400 portable radio and TM9400 mobile radio at booth #1827.

"The launch of Tait's second-generation P25 portfolio reaffirms the strong commitment the company has to both the APCO P25 standards and public safety sector," says Frank Owen, Managing Director, Tait Communications.

"The core components in the Tait P25 Phase 2-upgradeable solution have been engineered to exceed the changing requirements of public safety organizations. At the same time, they offer a sound investment for agencies seeking a long-term solution, through adherence to proven open standards."

With the TN9400 network at its heart, Tait's Phase 2 solution provides both 12.5kHz P25 Phase 1 FDMA operation and a software upgrade path to 6.25kHz-equivalent P25 Phase 2 TDMA compliance. This means customers can control their transition to a more spectrally efficient solution with greater capacity—future-proofing their investment.

The TB9400 base station is Tait's second-generation P25 base station with IP connectivity. The TB9400 delivers on deployment and operational efficiency with Phase 2 upgradeability, Linear Simulcast Modulation (LSM), and remote network management.

The Tait TP9400 may be the smallest P25 Phase 2-capable portable but it is uncompromising in meeting the demands of first responders. The TP9400 portable enables first responder effectiveness and safety with internal GPS, Bluetooth® wireless technology, IP67 protection and AES encryption.

The Tait TM9400 mobile is capable of AES encryption, over-the-air re-keying, various emergency modes and is IP54 rated, to keep those relying on the mobiles operating safely and efficiently. The TM9400 also has an options slot to extend its capabilities, and a range of remote-mounting, control-head and display options.
