As modern communications technology grows ever more sophisticated, the range of skills and tools needed to manage these complex systems is becoming increasingly costly and time-consuming. This is why Brazilian oil and gas company Petrobras chose to have the experts from Tait look after the monitoring, maintenance and performance reporting of their P25 radio network.
For decades, land mobile radio (aka two-way radio) has been the mainstay of mobile critical communications. Used by millions worldwide in countless different conditions, constantly tested and refined, it has been the yardstick of success for critical communications, particularly in Public Safety. However, with broadband technologies such as WiFi, cellular and others becoming more and more prevalent, does LMR still hold its ground? In this lesson of the Tait Radio Academy, we take a closer look at the pros and cons of LMR.
Firefighters face incredibly harsh challenges in the most hostile and punishing environments. Extreme conditions combined with the necessary safety equipment firefighters wear make it very difficult to communicate effectively. Richard Russell, Incident Ground Solution Architect at Tait Communications, has worked with fire services from around the world to develop a critical communications solution exclusively for the incident ground.
Oklahoma’s state troopers often work in remote areas, out there alone in their vehicles, so staying connected is vital for safety and rapid incident response time. Tait dealer Stolz Telecom designed a cost-effective solution to plug coverage gaps, so troopers now have much more complete radio coverage across the state.
