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.
Our series of Tait Radio Academy lessons on P25 continues, this time looking at the difference between P25 Phase 1 and Phase2. This course is taught by Andrew McTaggart, a Customer Support Engineering Specialist at Tait Communications. Prior to that, he was a product trainer on P25 digital radio communications equipment.
A question commonly asked is, “What is the difference between P25 Phase 1 and Phase 2?”
One of the original goals of P25 was spectrum efficiency. The radio spectrum is a limited resource. There are only so many radio channels that can be licensed in a given area.
