BGA was retained by the City of Fort Worth to provide a public safety wireless communications master plan for the City and surrounding region which resulted in a P25 upgrade contract with the City’s technology vendor.
BGA subsequently served as the quality assurance monitor and engineering advisor for the system implementation. The network consists of a six site, 20 channel simulcast network which utilizes a dual system overlay concept for a total of 40 simulcast channels. The system currently serves over 30,000 subscriber units including 60 external public safety agencies. While providing the required capacity for existing Police, Fire, and Emergency Management personnel, the network was sized to support anticipated growth through 2029 as well as expanded coverage and direct interoperability with several local interoperability partners.
