Tait Communications has chalked up a string of international deals this year, and the latest is a contract with Costa Rica’s largest electric utility company, Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE).
Headquartered in San José, ICE is a state-owned company that also provides fixed-line and mobile telephony, internet and data communications services throughout Costa Rica.
ICE personnel will be using Christchurch-designed and manufactured Tait equipment when installing and repairing electricity and telecommunications networks, providing more than 1,800 portable and mobile digital radios to its workforce.
Last year, military police fighting organised crime in the Brazilian state of Paraná selected hi-tech digital mobile radios designed and built by Tait.
