Telstra upgrades fleetcoms network

Wednesday, 02 December, 2009

Telstra will upgrade its national fleetcoms trunked radio network, enhancing the quality and reliability of the service.

Telstra Product Management Executive Director Philip Jones said the trunked radio services remain a vital part of the communication operations for many government and commercial users.

The utility is upgrading the fleetcoms network using Tait Communications. The upgrade will replace the existing switching infrastructure with new Tait nodes, bringing fleetcoms in line with the upgraded Victorian StateNet Mobile Radio (SMR) network.

In addition to the fleetcoms upgrade, Telstra is extending the support available for government and commercial users on the Victorian SMR. Fleetcoms and the SMR will now operate on the same upgraded network core.

This upgrade will give users improved operational effectiveness and an extended support period.

The fleetcoms network is based on the open standard MPT1327 that remains the platform for a large number of new radio networks around the world. This allows users to choose from a large number of terminal options available from many different vendors.
