Tait Communications, the critical communication solutions provider, has announced that its DMR Tier 3 offering now supports Zetron dispatch solutions.
Engineered in partnership with Zetron, and designed to work with Zetron’s Acom Advanced Communication and MAX Dispatch systems, it is the first console interface able to connect to a standards-based DMR Tier III trunked network.
‘This is all about offering our customers greater choice,’ said Trevor Laughton, chief technology officer at Tait Communications. ‘It also demonstrates our genuine and ongoing commitment to providing open standards-based solutions that unlock enduring value for our customers through compatibility with a variety of vendors.’
As Category 1 DMR Association members, Tait and Zetron are both working on the Applications Interface Specification (AIS) that defines the standard for interfacing with conventional and trunked networks that are DMR standards-based.
‘We are very pleased that this partnership with Tait has produced a DMR interface that will expand customers’ flexibility and options,’ said Kathy Broadwell, Zetron vice president of product management. ‘Because the new interface works with Zetron’s Acom and MAX Dispatch systems, we are now able to offer DMR-based solutions that support small to large organizations in a wide variety of markets.’
Tait DMR includes integrated location services, network management with a seamless migration pathway. The company says its DMR solutions allow organizations to minimize costs and increase return on investment while operating a highly resilient, consolidated voice-and-data network.
By implementing a digital communication network based on DMR open standards, organizations can avoid being locked in to a single vendor. As a result, they can leverage better value through multi-vendor solutions and be assured of interoperability with equipment and infrastructure sourced from other DMR-compliant suppliers, according to Tait.
