2020 has been a year like no other. It will go down in history as the year of a global pandemic, with all the disruption that has brought with it. How did these challenges impact us, how did we adapt, and what does it mean for the future of critical communications? What did we achieve despite the circumstances? Today we reflect on some of the most memorable moments for Tait in 2020.

Thanks to advances in technology, organizations which depend on critical communications have greater access to data and communications in more places than ever before, and leading technology companies like Tait and Zetron are taking advantage of this by joining forces to deliver unified critical communications solutions.
Different jobs require different audio accessories to work optimally. At Tait, we build accessories that enhance the usability and functionality of your radio to make communications more effective and keep workers safe. We’re happy to introduce a pair of new rugged Remote Speaker Microphones (RSM). These new RSMs meet the needs of a wide range of professional users by providing reliable and high quality audio performance in challenging environments.

With an increasing number of users, devices and networks being deployed, wireless spectrum is straining – especially unlicensed or “free” spectrum such as WiFi. CBRS is a new spectrum sharing scheme that is being introduced in the US and other parts of the world, and it can remove spectrum barriers for Private LTE networks to enable them to affordably and effectively replace enterprise WiFi.
In an increasingly digital world, critical communications is no longer just about LMR voice – the modern workforce demands ever more data to use location services and applications that increase worker safety and productivity. Converged voice and data solutions meet these needs by taking advantage of both broadband and narrowband technology.
Many organizations, both public and private, have harnessed the power of cloud technologies, but most Public Safety organizations are yet to embrace them, due to concerns over security, control and reliability. However, as advances in technology are presenting Public Safety agencies with unprecedented amounts of data, cloud technology should no longer be overlooked.
