Tait White Paper Library Updated

We’ve recently redesigned our White Paper Library, making it even easier for you to find the information you need. The Tait White Paper Library can now be browsed by industry or technology, and all papers are free to download!

For a sample of this great resource, take a look at some of our most popular White Papers:


#5 Unified Critical Communications Buyer’s Guide

The future of communications looks very different. Already, many agencies are using a range of wireless networks, as they increasingly rely on data. Undoubtedly this trend is set to continue. But with this additional choice comes confusion.

Unified Critical Communications connects individual devices across PMR, LTE, and WiFi to create a seamless “network of networks”. This guide will help you understand UCC, learn how to achieve UCC and understand the benefits of UCC.




#4 Critical Infrastructure Security Guide 1

This paper details the importance of cyber security on our communications networks, and introduces some important concepts and ideas. It covers the nature of the threat, what an industrial control system is, some dangerous assumptions, types of cyber attack and more.





#3 Advantages and Disadvantages of Current Digital Radio Standards

The need to transfer ever more voice and data services over the available PMR spectrum has led many organizations to consider replacement of their existing radio networks. But, finding the right technology to meet their specific needs and use cases can be both confusing and time consuming. This positioning paper provides a summarized comparison of the current digital technologies, outlining the advantages and disadvantages for each of them.






#2 P25 Simulcast Coverage Explained

When migrating from an analog LMR system to a digital standard like P25, coverage is a vital consideration. It’s important that the coverage provided by the new digital system is as good as – or better than – the analog system it is replacing. It’s important to determine the number of sites required to provide reliable communication throughout the service area; your officers’ safety depends on it. But additional sites have a major impact on system cost. This paper summarizes the coverage implications of migrating to P25 Phase 1 Simulcast, and how to achieve coverage that is similar to analog simulcast.


#1 Comparing Voice Coverage: DMR and Tetra

This paper provides a technical comparison between DMR and Tetra voice coverage, providing a simple ratio between the number of base stations each requires to cover a given area. Both downlink (base station to terminals), and uplink (terminals to base station) paths are considered across both urban and rural terrains. It discusses the measurable factors affecting coverage, how they affect relative coverage between these two technologies, and explains how the conclusions were reached.
