City of Waterbury Selects EFJohnson to Deploy Next Generation Communications System

Waterbury, Conn. has awarded a $4-million contract to EFJohnson to deploy the next generation of the city's radio communications system. EFJohnson will provide the city with its ATLAS™ P25 Trunked Simulcast System Solution, a complete Land Mobile Radio (LMR) simulcast solution featuring a patented, fully distributed architecture for outstanding reliability, resiliency and scalability.

The ATLAS P25 Trunked Simulcast Solution is designed to provide customers with the most flexible communications solution in the industry for the lowest cost of ownership. The system's fully distributed architecture allows every simulcast site to control the entire network, making the system resilient to one or multiple failures across a wide-area network. ATLAS' distributed architecture also eliminates the need for expensive central controllers or master sites, enabling users to deploy a more efficient multi-site simulcast system and allow easy expansion as needs and budgets change.

The City of Waterbury's ATLAS P25 system will include three nine-channel, 800 MHz, P25 trunked simulcast sites using EFJohnson's simulcast repeater. The repeater includes the voter comparator and simulcast controller in a single unit, reducing spares and operational cost. The use of an integrated simulcast repeater in a distributed architecture eliminates the need for prime and master sites while significantly increasing redundancy and channel uptime. The system will also include 10 StarGate™ Dispatch Consoles at the City of Waterbury's dispatch center and four consoles at the new emergency operations center at Fire Station 11. EFJohnson's StarGate consoles feature next-generation graphical user interfaces and superior audio fidelity, which minimize the risk of miscommunication. The user-friendly and highly intuitive display modules improve workflow and require little downtime for operator training.


Deployment of Waterbury's ATLAS P25 system is expected to take place in 2013.
