30 March, 2012, Houston, Texas, USA - Public safety and state government agencies operating on the Mississippi Wireless Information Network (MSWIN) can now benefit from genuine open-standards P25 digital technology with the addition of Tait Communications to the list of certified providers.
The approval will allow state agencies on the P25 trunked MSWIN network to incorporate Tait 9100-series digital portable and mobile radios into their fleets with the assurance of proven interoperability provided by the P25 standard.
“Network operators and users leveraging open-standards communications are now able to reap the benefits of greater choice," says Steve Cragg, President, Tait Communications, Americas.
"Operators once concerned about being locked into a single vendor's portfolio are now free to select from a wider range of manufacturers while achieving genuine interoperability, spectral efficiency and better value through multi-vendor solutions."
About 9,100 users currently subscribe to the MSWIN network, including the Mississippi National Guard, Highway Safety Patrol, Department of Transportation, Department of Corrections, and a number of other public safety and state government agencies.
Tait, a long-time advocate of open-standards communications, was one of the inaugural land mobile radio manufacturers to participate in the P25 Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP)—a voluntary program that allows P25 equipment suppliers to formally demonstrate that products meet stringent P25 standards for interoperability. Tait operates a P25 CAP laboratory recognized by the U.S. Federal Government from its Americas headquarters in Houston, Texas.
“Tait is delighted to now be a certified provider to the MSWIN network and its users, and we look forward to working closely with Mississippi public safety agencies to provide high-quality, competitively priced infrastructure, terminals, applications and service solutions,” concludes Steve.
