Tait Communications

Increase Safety

Safety is a top priority for Defense agencies around the world. Keeping workers connected and informed is key to a safe and efficient organization.

Reliable voice communications

Clear, reliable voice functionality across your P25 or DMR network delivers crystal clear call quality so that messages come through loud and understood. The Tait UnifyVoice smartphone app connects government or defense personnel to the network, even when they don't have access to a radio.

Tough portables for tough environments

Our Tait Tough portables have been engineered to survive the extreme heat and demanding environments you use them in. Our Intrinsically Safe portables are engineered to operate safely in hazardous environments, keeping your people safe while they get the job done.

Arrive Faster

Tait radios are equipped with Man Down, lone worker and GPS. Should an accident occur, dispatch will receive an alert and can send help immediately to the right location, ensuring help arrives as quickly as possible. By keeping track of your worker's locations, you can also prevent many accidents as well.

Call clarity

Your workers need more than just reliable voice communications 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.

“The most important outcome for us is increased safety for staff. We operate across a large, mostly rural area, and a lot of our staff work in small, remote crews.”

Operational security

Cyber-crime and terrorism are growing security challenges that defense and security organizations must address.

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 government or defense network secure in a safe, efficient manner.

Secure networks

The latest Tait networks provides industry best practice security provisions for your government or defense organization 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.

Mission Critical Voice

You can’t afford to have a voice platform that stops working, but Tait can provide a robust and reliable solution that keeps your people connected when and where they need it most. From design to managed services, we can do it all for you.

Reliable voice communications

Nothing slows a government or defense operation like failed communications. When your team can’t talk to each other, everything comes to a stop. That’s why both Tait DMR and P25 radio networks are built to be resilient and reliable, ensuring your people stay connected and productive.

Dedicated, Private network

Although many organizations try to get away with just using public cellular, major events like storms, professional sports, accidents, parades, and other incidents can clog or even break the public networks, making it difficult for your organizations to communicate. Tait can provide a private, mission-critical voice and data network that you control, and that won't fail you when you need it most.

Easier Migration

Both Tait P25 and DMR products are multi-mode. This provides significant improvements into the migration process. You can install your new Tait radios overtime and keep them operating in analog mode, and then once everything has been replaced, simply cut all products over to digital. This eliminates system downtime, keeping your personnel connected.

Agency interoperability

The Tait P25 and DMR platforms have been engineered to exceed interoperability expectations with full adherence to open standards. Our products and systems are tested to ensure they can be deployed seamlessly alongside other vendor’s standard based products and systems, allowing agencies to communicate in mutual-aid or multi-agency situations.
