Tait Communications has secured another international deal, this time with the state of Mississippi for the Christchurch company’s digital radios to be used on its network.
Its National Guard, Highway Safety Patrol and the Department of Corrections will be able to choose Tait P25 digital portable and mobile radios, which are designed and manufactured in New Zealand. P25 is an international open standard for the manufacturing of interoperable digital two-way wireless communication also used by New Zealand police.
The Mississippi Wireless Information Network is used by approximately 9,100 public safety and state government agency personnel.
Frank Owen, managing director at Tait Communications, said the company had enjoyed seen strong growth in the last two years in the US and approximately 30 percent of our export demand was from the Americas.
"“This is another example of a specialist public safety communications solution delivered by Tait," he said.
“Our expertise and investment in research and development is paying dividends for Tait, our customers and the community, as we continue our significant growth in an intensely competitive global industry."
It follows Tait becoming the first additional P25 solutions provider to be deemed fit to operate on the New South Wales government radio network.
