Stanislaus County and City of Modesto select Tait Communications
Stanislaus County and the City of Modesto have selected Tait Communications to implement a 700/800 MHz P25 trunked simulcast radio network for multiple emergency response agencies in a central California county.
Tait was awarded the project to design and implement the Tait 9400 core P25 Phase 2 TDMA-capable network as part of a multi-phase regional interoperable communications project. five-site, five-channel system and provide support services to enable a smooth installation.
Stanislaus Regional 9-1-1 Communications Manager Kurt Kline says the digital trunked radio solution will provide more efficient communications to first responders.
“It also gives us a long-term path to expand our communications as needed, and to take us to P25 Phase 2 when the time is right.”
“The Tait 9400 portfolio will give the county’s responders a path to P25 Phase 2 in time for relevant narrowbanding mandates and also provide access to a new suite of communications features.”
In 2007, Stanislaus County selected a TaitNet P25 digital conventional network solution after local officials identified a critical need to improve communications and, most importantly, enhance interoperability among agencies.
In 2008, Stanislaus County, through a RFP process, hired MACRO Corp. to perform a countywide communications study. In their report they recommended a county wide 700-800 MHz P25 Linear Simulcast Trunking System to provide communications for all public agencies within Stanislaus County.
In 2012 RFP responses for the project were evaluated by an evaluation committee consisting of members from Modesto Regional Fire Authority, Stanislaus Regional 9-1-1, City of Ceres, City of Turlock and City of Modesto.
