TeamTalk selects Tait for DMR network
TeamTalk Limited, a publicly listed telecommunications services provider and the largest provider of commercial mobile radio communications services and solutions throughout New Zealand, has chosen Tait Communications to supply and build its new nationwide Tier III Digital Mobile Radio network.
“Changes within the Health and Safety legislation along with the findings from the reviews following the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes mean many organisations are now considering diversity across their communications portfolio and mobile radio is critical in providing this service,” said TeamTalk Chief Executive Andrew Miller.
This investment will enable TeamTalk to continue to deliver mission-critical communications to its customers, as well as offering new services and solutions that will enable the company to grow its revenues by reaching into the conventional radio market.
This is a market in which TeamTalk has traditionally not competed, but the new digital platform will open up new opportunities including the capability to interconnect different networks.
“Whilst a new digital network is exciting, it is the roadmap of further integrated services that will be released over the next few years that really excites us about this investment,” Miller said.
“Our partnership with Tait Communications and other integrators will allow us to be at the forefront of new developments and enable New Zealand to gain access to these leading technologies and solutions quickly.
Miller said that Tait was selected following a robust RFP process including trials and interoperability testing, as well as evaluation of different migration strategies.
“Tait Communications is extremely happy to again be working with TeamTalk and that New Zealand’s business community will now have an opportunity to realise the potential of a nationwide modern digital mobile radio network for voice and data,” said Trevor Laughton, GM of Tait New Zealand.
“Tait is committed to the success of this investment and the agreement reflects that commitment.”
