Christchurch-headquartered Tait Communications' latest coup is a deal to upgrade the communications system used by Taiwan's largest electricity supplier and grid operator.
Taiwan Power Company (Taipower), which has more than 12.5 million customers, will gradually migrate to a TaitNet P25 digital conventional system over the next five years with an eye to future-proofing the reliability of its voice radio network.
"Taipower plays a critical role in the lives of millions of Taiwanese people and we’re delighted they’ve chosen Tait to help them improve the resiliency and efficiency of their operations,” said James Kyd, chief marketing officer for Tait Communications.
P25 is an internationally recognised open standard for the manufacture of digital two-way wireless communications.
