Australia’s Vertel Deploys DMR Tier 3 Commercial Network
Telecommunications and network services provider Vertel is building Australia's first national Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 3 network. Vertel selected Tait infrastructure to establish a multivendor ecosystem for the benefit of the network’s customers.
Tait Communications was selected to provide Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 3 network infrastructure to Vertel, a commercial operator in Australia.
Vertel operates TaitNet MPT 1327 trunked networks in five states in Australia and is committed to providing customers with innovation in digital voice and data communications, easy migration and the freedom of choice that a multivendor open standard provides. Vertel evaluated various digital technologies and selected DMR Tier 3 digital trunking to provide these benefits.
Tait will work with Vertel to create a multivendor ecosystem of compatible radios and applications to connect to the national DMR Tier 3 network, a statement said. The first phase of the network will be live in early 2015 and will use 10 sites to connect Newcastle through Sydney to Wollongong and the surrounding areas. This will grow to a national network of more than 50 sites in future phases.
