Increase Worker Safety

Worker Safety is a top priority for Mining, Oil & Gas operations around the world. Keeping them connected and informed is key to a safe and efficient workplace.

Call availability

The safety of each worker depends on their ability to make and receive calls without delay when required. Tait services will work to ensure you have the maximum coverage in your area. Tait DMR and P25 networks are designed with multiple levels of redundancy to ensure maximum system uptime and include call availability features such as emergency calls, call priority, call timers and call queuing.

Arrive faster

Location based services allow your management team to know the precise location of workers and assets. If someone gets hurt, you will know exactly where to send help. The new location-based business applications also provide location-specific warnings and vital information during emergencies, keeping workers out of harm's way.

Call clarity

Your workers need more than just reliable voice calls to keep them safe - they need a radio system that delivers market-leading call clarity. Our advanced radio technology provides better noise rejection, and preserves voice quality to the edge of coverage. When emergencies occur, improved call clarity will buy your workforce precious seconds to respond.

Physiological Monitoring

Tait portables are equipped with Man Down and GPS. Should an accident occur, dispatch will receive an alert and can send help immediately to the right location. Tait BioLink is an even more advanced physiological monitoring solution sends alerts related to changes in body position, temperature, or heart rate over your Tait radio network. Physiological Monitoring means your people will receive critical help faster, saving lives.

Migration Solutions

Radio system owners in mining, oil & gas need confidence that system upgrades will be completed smoothly, on time, on budget and without disruption to system availability. The Tait platforms are engineered to ensure smooth and seamless migration from your existing radio solution – with your critical communications uninterrupted.

True standards based technology

All Tait systems are designed to conform with the leading industry standards of P25, DMR, MPT, or conventional. If you have existing equipment you can have confidence that your new Tait system will deploy smoothly and will interoperate seamlessly with your equipment from other vendors built to the same standard.

Multimode Radios

Both Tait P25 and DMR radios are multi-mode. Our portables, mobiles, and base stations are capable of operating immediately on your old analog radio system and then moving onto your new network as it is activated. Multi-mode capability adds enormous flexibility to the roll-out of the P25 and DMR equipment.

Support for legacy equipment interfaces

Tait provides support for a wide range of legacy interfaces that can be used to connect existing third party equipment such as dispatch consoles, voice recorders, and applications to the new network. For a staged migration with continuity of service this is a vital aspect of managing cost and risk.

Operational security

Cyber-crime and terrorism are growing security challenges that resource organizations must address. The data communication network gives visibility, and sometimes even control to anyone with access. It is vital that these networks remain secure from outside listeners and influences.

Encryption for Secure Communications

All Tait platforms are built with security at their core. Tait DMR supports encryption and user authentication, access control for devices and users, and full logging of traffic and network access. The Tait P25 platform provides end-to-end, 256 bit AES encryption that is P25-compliant and FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) certified to prevent the unauthorized access of information.

Comprehensive access control

Security is a process, not just a feature, and Tait EnableProtect allows you to manage the security of your entire communications system. The EnableProtect Advanced System Key (ASK), Key Management Facility (KMF), and Key Fill Device (KFD) keep your network secure in a safe, efficient manor.

Secure networks

The latest Tait networks provides industry best practice security provisions by supporting secured HTTPS ports for web based configuration and management, VPN servers on the node controller and virus scanners on any equipment running a standard operating system. Tait network monitoring tools support SNMP v3.

Core Tait network security

Remote access to the core Tait network is only via IP connection which operates via Secure Shell (SSH) utilizing encrypted traffic between the client and the server and via the Dell iDrac which also utilizes encrypted traffic (HTTPS). Display and menus on the Tait base station can be disabled to prevent non-authorized changes to the base station by those physically on site.
