Tait Electronics (Aust) Pty Ltd

Tuesday, 19 May, 2015

Tait Communications has announced it will continue to provide critical communications support to long-standing customer Transport for London (TfL) for the next five years, having been awarded a multimillion-dollar contract extension.

TfL’s bus network, one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive urban transport systems, uses Tait’s TaitNet MPT trunked solution to help transport millions of passengers per day across the UK’s busy capital.

The extended contract will see Tait provide continued service and maintenance of the network in partnership with prime contractor Trapeze Switzerland and UK-based network support provider Magdalene.

The new contract extension will enable TfL to extend the life of its ‘iBus’ radio system to ensure maximum return on investment in its wider network.

Hans van der Linde, regional general manager of Tait Europe, said that Tait’s ability to deliver cutting-edge solutions and 24/7 support to customers helps secure ongoing projects with customers such as TfL.

“The contract with TfL is a great example of Tait’s ability to provide value to its customers through strong, long-term partnerships. Working closely with Trapeze and Magdalene has allowed us to continue to provide services tailored to our customers’ needs.”

As part of the original contract with TfL, signed in 2005, the TaitNet system was customised to integrate the Trapeze ITS dispatch equipment and TM8200 mobiles with the ‘iBus’ onboard bus computer, ensuring optimal voice communications between dispatchers and bus drivers.
