Tait Communications has won a 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, resulting in greater coverage, clearer voice communications and greater security.
Users will also be able to send small files, such as personal identification data, over the network, says Tait.
The network in the initial pilot phase will be implemented on one site, which Tait will oversee with a local partner. It is expected to be operational by August. A full-scale system will then be implemented across several other sites for the Vietnam-wide network.
"The pilot project will allow VMOPS to upgrade its network to digital at a pace that suits their time and budget," says William Phan, Asia country manager for Tait Communications.
The project will directly benefit New Zealand suppliers, of which 256 are based in Christchurch, says James Kyd, Tait chief marketing officer.
