Nevada awards Harris $108M contract to provide shared public safety radio system
The Nevada Shared Radio System has awarded Harris Corporation a $108M contract to provide a critical communications network that increases coverage, reliability, interoperability and functionality for more than 16,000 users across 90 agencies. Nevada Department of Transportation, NV Energy and Washoe County will transition from a Harris EDACS system to a new statewide Harris P25 Phase 2 digital network. The system is designed to allow law enforcement, public safety workers, utility workers, public works and others to communicate across agencies on a statewide basis. Harris will provide an end-to-end 126-site multicast/simulcast system, including a Voice, Interoperability, Data and Access converged and integrated service platform; SymphonyTM command center dispatch consoles; XL-200P full-spectrum, LTE-capable, multiband P25 radios; and the BeOn mobile Push-to-Talk application for integration of narrowband and broadband solutions.
