Fleetcoms upgrading

Thursday, 18 February, 2010


Telstra is upgrading its Fleetcoms trunked network - an MPT 1327 network - and replacing the existing switching infrastructure with new Tait nodes.

Fleetcoms provides virtual Australia-wide coverage to two-way radio users working in utilities, government and general business sectors. The network features 105 base station sites throughout Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and NSW.

This upgrade will see Tait supply five new nodes to complement the existing five nodes on the Victoria StateNet Mobile Radio (SMR) network to enable the network to support 624 channels.

The company has already provided the TaitNet MPT 1327 trunked SMR network, which features 118 sites and 569 channels. The centrepiece of Tait’s solution for the SMR trunked network upgrade is the gateway interface built between the Nokia Actionet and TaitNet MPT 1327 trunked radio networks.
