State of Arkansas Wireless Information Network

The Arkansas Department of Information Systems contracted with BGA to provide strategic planning for the development of a wireless communications plan for 16 state agencies. The resulting plan provided a recommendation to leverage existing state assets in the deployment of a statewide system. The plan was endorsed by the Governor and resulted in a vendor contract for a system upgrade from a proprietary analog 800 MHz system to a P25, 700/800 MHz digital trunking system with over 102 sites and now over 18,000 state, county, and federal subscribers. BGA continues to provide technical and project management support as requested for system expansion and upgrades.
