California county selects Tait Communications to implement P25 Phase 2-capable network for law enforcement and emergency responders.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 28, 2012

Tait Communications has been selected to implement a 700/800 MHz P25 trunked simulcast radio network for multiple emergency response agencies in a central California county.

Stanislaus County and the City of Modesto have selected the Tait 9400 core P25 Phase 2 TDMA-capable network as part of a multi-phase regional interoperable communications project.

Stanislaus Regional 9-1-1 Communications Manager Kurt Kline says the digital trunked radio solution will provide more efficient communications to first responders.

“It also gives us a long-term path to expand our communications as needed, and to take us to P25 Phase 2 when the time is right.”

Steve Cragg, President, Tait Communications Americas, says: “We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Stanislaus and, at the same time, offer them the latest in public safety communications technology.

“The Tait 9400 portfolio will give the county's responders a path to P25 Phase 2 in time for relevant narrowbanding mandates and also provide access to a new suite of communications features.”

RFP responses for the project were evaluated by an evaluation committee consisting of members from Modesto Regional Fire Authority, Stanislaus Regional 9-1-1, City of Ceres, City of Turlock and City of Modesto. Tait was awarded the project to design and implement the five-site, five-channel system and provide support services to enable a smooth installation.

Background

In 2007, Stanislaus County selected a TaitNet P25 digital conventional network solution after local officials identified a critical need to improve communications and, most importantly, enhance interoperability among agencies.

In 2008, Stanislaus County, through a RFP process, hired MACRO Corp. to perform a countywide communications study. In their report they recommended a county wide 700-800 MHz P25 Linear Simulcast Trunking System to provide communications for all public agencies within Stanislaus County.
