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.
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.
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.
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.
Unified Critical Communications (UCC) benefit all industries, but each industry takes advantage of multi-bearer networks in ways specific to their operating environment. Continuing on with the fourth lesson of the Introduction to Unified Critical Communications course, we explore the benefits a UCC strategy can bring to law enforcement.

FirstNet, the First Responder Network Authority, was set-up as an independent entity in the US to provide an interoperable wireless broadband public safety network across the entire US. Does LMR have a place alongside FirstNet? David Lau, Senior Market Analyst at Tait investigates. He concludes that while FirstNet is an important part of the future of Public Safety communications, there will be a place for LMR for many years to come.
As first responders look toward Long Term Evolution (LTE) broadband, converged devices can be the catalyst to accelerate adoption of new data-centric capabilities, while still ensuring users have reliable voice communications. Broadband technologies are key elements of future mission critical communications, so for mission critical organizations, that means starting the adoption process in the near future. Michelle Johnson, Director of LTE Advocacy and Business Development at Harris Corporation, takes a closer look.
The Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association is a regional Fire and EMS Dispatch Centre in Laconia, New Hampshire, USA. They have selected a Tait solution to enhance the reliability and efficiency of their communications – an US$860,000 project taking place this year.
