Critical communications solutions provider Tait Communications is to demonstrate its ‘pathway to digital radio’ at the PMR Expo in Cologne (26-28 November 2013) with the introduction of its quad mode terminals: the TP9300 and TM9300 (below).
“The Tait 9300 gives our clients a clear and easy pathway to a digital solution because they can operate in analogue conventional, MPT1327, DMR Tier 2 and DMR Tier 3 modes,” explained Jamie Bishop, regional marketing manager for Tait Communications.
“What this means for our clients is that if they are running an analogue system today, they can use our terminals and get many of the benefits that typically only come with a full digital solution. Then, when they choose to migrate to digital, a simple software update is all that’s required to fully-enable the terminals. No-one else in the market can offer this kind of choice and flexibility.”
As well as giving analogue users a simple migration path to digital, the Tait solution enables DMR tier 2 users to move easily to an open standards-based DMR Tier 3 trunked digital radio solution, when combined with the Tait TN9300 DMR network architecture.
Tait is demonstrating its DMR Tier 2 capability using its quad mode TP9300 and TM9300 terminals at the PMR Expo; the terminals feature superior Tait industrial design, IP67 military standards, built-in Bluetooth, ‘man down’ capability and GPS.
“Whether it’s because of timing, budgets, regulatory conditions or spectrum allocation, many organizations have been unable to opt for a digital solution,” said Bishop. “Our demonstrations at PMR Expo will show that these things are no longer a barrier – there’s a digital-ready solution available today from Tait that protects your long-term investment while retaining flexibility and choice.
“We understand our clients need tailored solutions, which is why we’re committed to open standards; this approach means we can create communications solutions that integrate best to deliver the critical outcomes that matter to them.”
“Our clients protect communities, power cities, move citizens, harness resources and save lives all over the world. We work with them to create, support and unify the critical communication solutions they depend on to do their jobs.”
Bishop continued: “Digital wireless communication forms the central nervous system of everything we do. Around this resilient, robust core we design, develop, manufacture, test, deploy, support and manage innovative communication environments for organizations that have to put their total trust in the systems and people they work with.
“We’ve worked hard to develop genuine insight into our clients’ worlds, and have pursued engineering, operational and services excellence for more than 40 years. This understanding, and our belief in championing open-standards technology, means we can give our clients the best possible choice and value to achieve the human outcomes they’re driven by.
“We’re not simply aligned with our clients; we’re devoted to their cause. Tait Communications’ sole dividend receiving shareholder is a charitable trust which shares the company’s operating profits across several donation and investment streams responsible for research and development, regional reinvestment and education. This rare model means clients can rely on Tait Communications to be an independent long-term player in the critical communications industry and to continue to play its role of ‘open-standards champion,” concluded Bishop.
