Tait leads the pack with the largest DMR Tier 3 systems in the world

Providing large scale DMR Tier 3 NetworksTait is expanding the global reach of its DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) Tier 3 technology solution with contract signings in three key global markets.

Queensland Rail (Australia), Entropia Digital (UK and Europe) and Manitoba Hydro (Canada) have all called on Tait to provide reliable, interoperable, mission critical radio communication systems to support their operations.

Tait designs and builds proven DMR Tier 3 trunked networks that critical industries around the world rely on for safety, productivity and automation. Thanks to the open standards technology on which all Tait products are based, the Tait digital terminals are compatible with existing analog systems, such as the Zetron dispatch consoles used by both Queensland Rail and Manitoba Hydro.

These recent contracts are testament to the confidence that you can place in Tait products, services and support services. Our experience in large-scale deployments, ability to deliver in time, and the quality of our terminals are just some of the reasons why Queensland Rail, Entropia Digital and Manitoba Hydro have chosen Tait.
