Mississippi Wireless Information Network

BGA was engaged by the State of Mississippi through the Mississippi Department of Transportation to help acquire and implement a statewide mobile radio communications system. A detailed and comprehensive RFP was coupled with an acquisition strategy that led to a phased statewide project scalable to available funding. As a result the state executed a contract for a P25, 700 MHz trunked radio system comprised of 135 remote radio sites, 14 major dispatch locations, and a loop protected, route redundant digital microwave transport network. The network was completed and fully operational in 2014 and now supports over 22,000 radio subscribers.
