For many public safety agencies, operating on limited resources and having to manage radio systems can be a challenge. The agency described in this real-life case study faced this exact problem when they had to connect multiple public safety departments across the city. The department decided to tackle the problem by implementing interoperability into their statewide P25 Phase 2 Network with a Tait DMR T3 system. As a result of this successful implementation, they were able to improve communication between first responder teams across the city. This case study will discuss the key issues that had to be addressed by the department, as well as provide an overview of the solution. Finally, it will shed light on how their system enabled them to overcome the communication challenges they were facing and meet their ultimate objectives of efficient inter-agency collaboration and improved response times. Additionally, the capability to expand their system and adding further capacity without vendor lock-in is only the start of their journey.
