10: Portable Radio Selection Guide
Audio Quality. Connectivity. Worker Safety. These are just a few of the essential features a portable radio should have, but what else should you look for? Tait published a thorough guide exploring the factors that should be considered before selecting the right portable radio for your workforce.
9: Remote Working Solutions
The year of the Zoom meeting. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way many organizations work and communicate, and many industries around the world have learned to rely on remote working solutions. We looked at a range of remote communication and monitoring solutions that have become indispensable this year.
8: Will LTE Replace LMR?
The question that’s been on everyone’s lips for several years: will LTE replace LMR? LTE is proving to be a game changer in critical comms because of its extremely fast speeds, high data capacity and low power consumption – but can it truly be considered mission critical? Dr Jan Noordhof explores this topic in this informative video.
7: Redefining Fireground Communications
The extreme conditions of a fireground, including the necessary PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) can make it very difficult to communicate effectively. Tait worked with fire experts to create a total fireground communications solution, including specialist breathing apparatus, speaker mics with glove-friendly interfaces, and Intrinsically Safe radios for working in flammable environments.
6: Dual Band Radios
No matter the industry you’re in, chances are your operations span multiple areas and sites, and require cooperation with other organizations that are all working on different radio networks and frequency bands. Tait Dual Band radios enable switching between bands, so you can stay connected without installing multiple radios in your vehicles.
5: Creating the Next Generation of Tait Radios
The new range of Tait TP9500 and TP9600 portable radios was developed and brought to market with lightning speed, thanks to a well-devised Research and Development process, which included the use of 3D printing for rapid prototyping. Take a look at what went into bringing these 16 new models to life in this article.

This video features the Tait Rugged External Speaker, a robust, chunky speaker that looks like it could survive a stampede. But it’s not just built Tait Tough, it also features excellent audio quality to cut through noisy working environments. Watch the video to compare it with competing speakers.
3: How to Clean and Disinfect your Radio

1: Extend your Radio Functionality to LTE
