Communications Solutions for Local Government

Local government and public service organizations are the lifeblood of any community, with responsibility for the operation and maintenance of a wide range of services including parks and sports centers, waste management, sanitation, public works, roads and educational facilities.

Tait understands that these organizations require reliable and flexible communications to carry out their day-to-day duties with maximum efficiency. We also recognise that local governments have a crucial role to emergencies, disasters and other unforeseen circumstances that can occur.

Tait's mobile communications solutions allow public service and local government teams and workgroups to quickly communicate vital information to the right people, at the right time. We offer flexible and reliable solutions that can cope with the demands of local governments covering large rural areas, as well as densely-populated urban environments.

Citywide to nationwide communications solutions

Tait has the experience, skills and expertise to deliver effective public services communications solutions for organizations throughout the world. We have built a wide range of voice and data networks for local authorities and public services - from multi-channel, multi-site TaitNet MPT 1327 trunked systems for local authorities to TaitNet QS² simulcast systems for large city councils.
