Tait Communications has won a contract to upgrade and manage Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) digital mobile radio communications system as the Australian city readies itself for the G20 Leaders Summit later this year.
The communications system upgrade will see the company deliver support and maintenance services throughout the project as well as designing, deploying and supporting a digital mobile radio network.
James Kyd, Tait Chief Marketing Officer, says the contract win to upgrade the network and provide full managed services is indicative of the way the New Zealand communications technology exporter is now working in close partnership with its clients on a long-term basis.
“Tait has a global reputation for innovative digital mobile radio networks, and this will certainly open up a world of possibilities for the future of the airport’s communications, but we’re really thrilled to be able to demonstrate our expertise in providing full managed services," he says.
“Our clients are now looking to us to provide the expertise to not only design and install their communications systems but to manage and support them as well.
"Managed services is a key part of our growth strategy and will enable us to deliver increased value to clients, internationally and domestically, on a long-term basis.
“At this critical time, when the world’s eyes will be on Brisbane, Tait will be working hard behind the scenes to ensure that the BAC communications systems are running 24x7, allowing BAC to focus on managing and growing its core business.”
It is expected that the G20 Leaders Summit will bring around 4,000 international delegates and 3,000 domestic and international media to Brisbane in November later this year.
Tait is well-known for supplying radio communications solutions to public safety agencies, utilities and transportation agencies including Air France, London Bus and British Columbia Rail.
