DMR for public safety.
NZ firm to unveil DMR Tier 3 solution
Dubai, April 30, 2012
New Zealand company Tait Communications will launch one of the first implementations of DMR Tier 3 standard, the latest digital technology defined for mission-critical applications, at the upcoming APCO Global Congress 2012 in Dubai.
Tait will present its new digital radio platform, including high-performance base stations, repeaters, portables and mobiles during the event to be held from May 1 to 3 at the InterContinental Dubai Festival City.
Tait DMR solutions are designed to improve the safety and efficiency of organizations with operational and mission-critical communications needs by providing extensive data capabilities combined with clear digital voice communications and multi-vendor interoperability, to ensure continuity of supply options for customers.
“The Tait DMR solution will include Tait designed terminals, infrastructure and applications. This digital radio platform will provide a stress-free migration path via triple-mode terminals, which support DMR, MPT 1327 and analog FM functionality,” explained Monique Princen, Tait Solutions marketing manager.
“At Tait, we are committed to offering open standards-based radio systems and our DMR solution is designed to be fully compliant with ETSI-defined Digital Mobile Radio standards, including the interfaces for dispatchers, location services and other applications,” she added.
Steve Jones, New Zealand Trade Commissioner to the Middle East and Consul General in Dubai, said Tait was a global leader in innovative communication solutions that help utilities and public safety organizations to keep the lights on and communities safe.
Tait DMR solutions, which will be available from the second half, will offer integrated location services and Network Management, while future software upgrades will provide data services, Over-The-Air Programming, encryption and security features.
Russell Watson, Tait marketing manager said public safety organisations and end users have different needs and expectations, and a single technology might not be the right answer.
“By combining narrowband and broadband networks we can obtain significant benefits including the ability of those within the field and within the command and control structure, to reliably combine voice with other information,” he added.
The 2012 Congress is aimed at displaying the latest innovations and thinking in public safety communications and create a venue for global counterparts to network and learn.-TradeArabia News Service
