Texas County Implements Tait VHF Simulcast Network (7/10/12)
Jim Wells County, Texas, selected Tait Communications to provide a Project 25 (P25)-compliant communications solution for its public-safety agencies and emergency responders. The county will implement a three-site, two-channel hybrid TaitNet QS2 simulcast/P25 simulcast VHF network to provide interoperable, critical communications for agencies including the sheriff’s department, state troopers, police, fire and EMS.
The new network, compliant with the 2013 FCC VHF and UHF narrowbanding mandate, will replace an outdated analog network to provide improved coverage for first responders throughout the county area. The county will save money through re-use of its existing tower antennas, 400 subscriber units and 60 pagers deployed to volunteer firefighters, Tait executives said.
The Tait solution includes a three-year maintenance services contract and will be commissioned in September.
