Public Safety technology is a complex and ever-changing ecosystem. Cloud-based infrastructure and applications are delivering innovation but still aren’t trusted as much as the more familiar and proven on-premises systems. However, cloud resources available today have overcome many concerns over reliability and security so you don’t have to miss out on new capabilities, improved performance and lower cost solutions.
At Tait, we know that no two organizations are the same, and that there is no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” communications solution. Because each organization has their own unique set of requirements for connectivity and functionality, we build all our products and solutions with flexibility at their core.
2019 marks 50 years of Tait Communications helping customers stay safe and productive. The company was established in 1969 by Sir Angus Tait, who believed that strong research and a commitment to listening to customers would build a business that stands the test of time. That vision continues as we look forward to the innovations we can bring customers in the future. Today we reflect on some of our favorite stories from 2019.
