Miami Beach goes with Harris P25
Miami Beach municipality in Florida has commissioned Harris Corporation to upgrade its critical communications network from a legacy analog system to a new P25 digital network, for use by its 1000-plus first responders.
The solution will deliver interoperable communications for voice, data and applications across multiple agencies, and simplify dispatch centre operations.
The four-site simulcast system will include a VIDA network, Symphony command centre dispatch consoles, XL-200P multiband P25 radios and the BeOn mobile Push-to-Talk application.
“We are honoured to partner with Harris to provide excellent public service and safety to all who live, work and play in our vibrant, tropical, historic community,” said Melissa Berthier, Miami Beach Office of Communications.
“This selection shows Miami Beach values Harris’s P25 technology and the seamless interoperability that we will provide the city,” said Nino DiCosmo, president, Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications.
Other South Florida communities to have chosen Harris radio systems for their first responders are Aventura, Coral Gables, the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County.
The US Navy has chosen Unisys to supply its software for mission-critical communications.
