Tait Communications has won a contract to upgrade the communications system for emergency services in Otsego County, New York.

The contract, worth approximately US$3 million, is for a Quasi-Sync (QS2) simulcast system that will provide emergency services with county-wide coverage.

Otsego County will replace the Fire Department’s aged low-band VHF conventional network and upgrade the existing VHF conventional network used for law enforcement in order to provide improved coverage at an affordable price.

The new emergency communications network will operate on UHF for fire services and high-band VHF for law enforcement. The system will also provide a simulcast VHF fire paging channel.

“The Tait Quasi-Sync system is perfect for public safety agencies who want to improve coverage without the high ongoing price tags for maintenance and software upgrades associated with other radio solutions. It’s flexible, easy to use and delivers excellent voice quality, which is the ideal solution for Otsego County,” says Paul Bannister, business development manager, Tait Communications.

James Powers, Otsego County Public Safety Committee board member, said that the increased radio coverage provided by the Tait system will enhance safety for front-line staff, the local community and the many tourists who visit the county annually.

“We’re happy to be working with Tait. They have listened to what we wanted, understood our challenges and presented a solution that is built around quality products, that meets our requirements and fits within our budget,” said Powers.
