With major investments in infrastructure expected to last 15-20 years, communications networks are now having to support a range of both new and legacy applications, various network connections, IP, etc that they were never designed to support – all with mounting additional costs.
You may already know that with a simple upgrade from mobile radio that supports familiar, business-as-usual practices, Tait Unified Vehicle creates a network of networks – LMR, LTE, and WiFi – that ensures urgent calls always get through. In addition to... Continue Reading
