Tait wins contract for radio network upgrade

The initial pilot phase for the Vietnam traffic police will be implemented on one site and is expected to be operational by August 2014.

Tait Communications has won a contract to design and develop the pilot phase of an upgrade to the Vietnam traffic police radio network.

The company will deliver the initial digital mobile radio (DMR) Tier 3 trunked system for the Vietnam ministry of public security’s (VMOPS) traffic police.

VMOPS plans to eventually replace the country’s ageing analogue network with a private digital trunked system.

The network in the initial pilot phase will be implemented on one site, which Tait will oversee with a local partner, and is expected to be operational by August 2014. A full-scale system will then be implemented across several other sites for the Vietnam-wide network.

Tait already has a presence in Vietnam, having worked with VMOPS on a fire-fighting communications project.

Tait CMO, James Kyd, said, “Asia-Pacific is an important region for Tait and we continue to make excellent progress in the region with projects like this one in Vietnam.

“Our clients make up a global community of agencies that allow Tait to succeed across competitive international markets and return valuable export dollars to New Zealand.

“This translates into real benefits for our NZ suppliers - 256 of which are based right here in Christchurch.”
