Harris and the state of Maine Office of Information Technology announced the full deployment of the Project 25 (P25) VHF statewide digital radio system, Maine State Communications Network (MSCommNet).

The state's new public-safety communications network, featuring 40 transmit-and-receive sites, including seven solar-powered sites and seven dispatch centers, provides statewide communications interoperability for more than 2,000 agency users, including state police, forest rangers, game wardens, correctional officers, marine patrol personnel and other agencies. MSCommNet also provides for interoperability with all county and local public-safety agencies.

State users report improved voice clarity and coverage across the state using Harris portable and mobile radios, including the Unity XG-100.

“The MSCommNet network provides unprecedented improvements to enhance the effectiveness of Maine’s law enforcement and state agency teams,” said Greg McNeal, chief technology officer, state of Maine Office of Information Technology. “Our customers are extremely satisfied with the quality and the increased radio coverage Harris has delivered. With MSCommNet, our state agencies, no matter where in the field they are working, are connected.”

The MSCommNet system deployment resulted from joint efforts by Maine’s Office of Information Technology; departments of Public Safety, Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Corrections, Marine Resources, Conservation and Maine Emergency Management Agency; and local, county and federal governments.
