Agencies looking to upgrade their radio communications network, perhaps because of narrowbanding requirements, may find that they need to opt for a simulcast solution.
There just isn’t the spectrum available, or frequency licenses are too expensive, to implement any other solution. It is estimated that some 30 per cent of public safety networks in the US are simulcast.
P25 digital simulcast networks make using a radio simpler. You can move anywhere within coverage—no action required. The radio just works, letting you get the job done without distractions. No need for the user to change channel, and no risk of ending up on the wrong frequency.
Simulcast networks require additional intelligence, and Tait has built this intelligence directly into its TB9100 base station/repeater, increasing reliability and saving valuable rack space.
