The Santee Cooper 900MHz trunking system replacement project continues to progress on schedule and under budget. The system consists of geographically redundant switching centers with 65 radio sites and 35 dispatch console positions. Functional and coverage testing was successfully completed and the system is now fully operational.
The State of Michigan continues the life cycle remediation project as Phase IV is now underway. The first three phases covered 90% of Michigan’s land area, but Phase IV will be challenging as it involves the heavy populated areas in southeast Michigan. It’s always difficult when upgrading a fully operational network that serves over 89,000 public safety practitioners and 1,650 agencies, but the Michigan team is moving forward, building on the successes from earlier phases.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is now fully operational on the new statewide P25 LMR system called the Tennessee Advanced Communications Network (TACN). TACN continues to expand as other state agencies, such as Departments of Transportation and Health, and local government partners are added to the system.
