If a communications network is to be truly reliable, the people using it every day need to be intimately familiar with how it works. Tait offers training services to help users become confident and efficient with their equipment. The São Paulo Military Police recently made use of Tait Brazil’s Advanced Training Center to learn about their new P25 Phase 2 system.
To keep officers and first responders safe and connected, critical communications for Public Safety must be robust, interoperable, and secure. Tait works with many Public Safety organizations to design reliable, smart critical communications solutions that help workers on the front line get the job done safely and efficiently.
Workers that are exposed to hazardous environments demand proper equipment, essential to keep them safe and productive. To support this, Tait has expanded our Intrinsically Safe (IS) range of radios, with new models certified to meet the stringent Class 1 Division 1 standard in the United States.
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.
Tait partner VIAVI’s Communications Test Equipment supports critical communications worldwide for Public Safety, Public Transportation, Hospitals, Utilities, Railroads, Private Security, Homeland Security, Government, and Military. We’re excited to announce that Automated tests for our Tait TP9500 and TP9600 Series radios are now available on the VIAVI 3920B and 8800SX Radio Test Sets.
Firefighters, police officers and first responders depend on instant, reliable communications to stay connected when out in the field. However, different networks or frequency bands can complicate a unified and coordinated response. The new Tait TM9456 dual band radio makes it easy to switch between different P25 networks and frequency bands and enables you to communicate through a single control head.
The P25 CAP (Compliance Assessment Program) allows P25 vendors to confirm their products meet the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) standard for interoperability. Tait is a major supporter of open standards, and with the addition of our latest products now has the most extensive listing on the DHS website.
