Tait Communications and Kordia, in partnership, have won a contract to build and maintain a secure digital land mobile radio communications network across New Zealand, a key element of the Government’s recently announced Public Safety Network (PSN). With more than 450 sites, this will be one of the largest P25 networks in the world.
The unpredictable nature of emergency situations has made real interoperability a critical goal in Public Safety communications for decades. In emergencies, the teams on the ground need to be able to communicate with each other to respond to evolving threats. Multiband radios are a key tool in creating real inter-agency cooperation.
Robust and reliable communications are essential for emergency medical services that work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to reach people in need anywhere, anytime. To improve the robustness of the network and give staff enhanced access to critical communications in remote areas, St John New Zealand opted for a Tait Push-To-Talk over Cellular (PTToC) solution.
Unified Critical Communications (UCC) is beneficial to all industries, but each industry will utilize the advantages of multi-bearer networks in ways specific to their operating environment. Continuing on with the fourth lesson of the Introduction to Unified Critical Communications course, we explore the benefits a UCC strategy can bring to Ambulance and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
The P25 CAP (Compliance Assessment Program) allows P25 vendors to confirm their products meet the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) standard for interoperability. Tait is a major supporter of open standards, and with the addition of our latest products now has the most extensive listing on the DHS website.
The Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association is a regional Fire and EMS Dispatch Centre in Laconia, New Hampshire, USA. They have selected a Tait solution to enhance the reliability and efficiency of their communications – an US$860,000 project taking place this year.
