Tait Communications is launching three new DMR solutions aimed at critical infrastructure organizations and channel partners at the 2015 International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) in Las Vegas, March 16-20.
Utilities, natural resource organizations and transport agencies will have the chance to learn about the benefits of the new Tait DMR Tier 2 infrastructure, GridLink telemetry and Intrinsically Safe (IS) radios. The latest additions to Tait's portfolio, following the launch of its DMR Tier 2 terminals and Tier 3 trunked networks, offer customers and channel partners a complete portfolio of open DMR solutions that are tough, resilient and smart.
Paul Daigneault, General Manager of Products & Platforms at Tait Communications, said the robust DMR portfolio will open the door to a broader customer base looking to upgrade their conventional analog systems to the benefits of digital radio.
"As with all Tait solutions, our DMR Tier 2 offering is scalable, interoperable and standards-compliant. This gives our customers the opportunity to plan and prepare for growth in their organization, safe in the knowledge that when the time comes they can easily migrate to DMR Tier 3, by simply upgrading license keys, putting powerful trunking options within easy reach."
Tait has tested DMR Tier 2 with competitor radios to ensure interoperability, and with applications using the DMR AIS protocol including offerings from Omnitronics, Eventide, Logic Wireless, as well as Avtec and Zetron in the near future.
Also on show is Tait GridLink, which adds SCADA telemetry data capabilities to DMR Tier 3 voice networks, offering significant cost and resiliency benefits to critical infrastructure companies which use automation to monitor power outages and control remote devices. GridLink will launch in April and has been trialed successfully by electric utilities around the world.
Tait's new explosion proof, IS portable radios will be on display at IWCE. Certifying to the international standards set by IECEx and ATEX, the line of IP67 rated IS radios will support DMR Tier 2 and Tier 3, Analog, MPT-1327, or P25 Phase 1 and 2 modes of operation.
Tait will be showcasing all three new solutions at booth #823 in the Las Vegas Convention Center at IWCE.
