Kiwi suppliers set to benefit following Christchurch win in Southeast Asia

28 Mar 2014

Tait Communications has been successful in Southeast Asia by winning a contract to design and develop the pilot phase of an upgrade to the Vietnam Traffic Police radio network.

Terms of the deal will see the company deliver the initial Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 3 trunked system for the Vietnam Ministry of Public Security’s (VMOPS) Traffic Police.

VMOPS plans to eventually replace the country’s ageing analogue network with a private digital trunked system, resulting in greater coverage, clearer voice communications and greater security.

Users will also be able to send small files, such as personal identification data, over the network.

Tait already has a presence in Vietnam, having worked with VMOPS on a fire-fighting communications project.

“Asia-Pacific is an important region for Tait and we continue to make excellent progress in the region with projects like this one in Vietnam,” says James Kyd, Chief Marketing Officer, Tait.

“We pride ourselves on delivering solutions that public safety users can rely on and services that add real value for our clients.

“Our clients make up a global community of agencies that allow Tait to succeed across competitive international markets and return valuable export dollars to New Zealand.

“This translates into real benefits for our New Zealand suppliers - 256 of which are based right here in Christchurch.”

The network in the initial pilot phase will be implemented on one site, which Tait will oversee with a local partner, and is expected to be operational by August 2014. A full-scale system will then be implemented across several other sites for the Vietnam-wide network.

“We are delighted to build our relationship with VMOPS and provide them with a quality communications solution they can depend on,” adds William Phan, Asia Country Manager, Tait.

“The pilot project will allow VMOPS to upgrade its network to digital at a pace that suits their time and budget.”
