Cassidian P25 Land Mobile Network Completes System Acceptance at Buncombe County, N.C.
State-of-the-art CORP25 system takes the county to the next level of public safety communications
Cassidian Communications, an EADS North America company, has announced acceptance of its CORP25 digital, trunked P25 Land Mobile Radio (LMR) network, by Buncombe County, N.C. for enhanced public safety communications and response. Covering a 660 square-mile area between the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains, including the city of Asheville, this new, 12-site network enables secure, reliable radio communication for the county’s first responders, as well as government and public works users.
Selected to replace Buncombe County’s aging radio system, the CORP25 solution includes infrastructure, design, engineering, installation, long-term managed services, and 24/7 maintenance and support. As a truly open, P25 standards compliant solution, Cassidian Communications’ CORP25 made it possible for the county to utilize competitive procurements for its mobile and portable radios as well as other key network elements. This “unbundled” approach allowed the county to reduce the total cost of ownership, increasing the overall economic value of the new network.
“CORP25 delivers the improved spectral efficiency, increased capacity, enhanced coverage and interoperability necessary to support our deputies in the field,” said Sheriff Van Duncan, Buncombe County. “In addition, this IP-based network will evolve with us as our needs change, keeping the county safely on the front edge of mission critical communications.”
