Erie County Selects $16M EF Johnson P25 Phase 2 Network
Wednesday, August 17, 2016 | Comments

EF Johnson Technologies signed a $16.1 million contract with Erie County, Pennsylvania, to deliver a secure Project 25 (P25) Phase 2 communications system, new radio fleet, dispatch consoles and long-term support services to upgrade and manage its radio network.

"I'm very proud of the progress we've made so far on this system and where it will take us," said County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper. "In the end, it will protect not only every first responder, but every person the first responders are trying to help."

The network will service all Erie County residents and first responders, including fire, police, medical and emergency management personnel. The solution includes a 21-site, two-cell, six-channel P25 UHF Phase 2 trunked simulcast system and 25 Zetron dispatch consoles at three dispatch centers. Erie County's fleet of radios will be replaced with Kenwood Viking P25 portable and mobile radios enabled with noise cancellation and commanded by fleet management software, including wireless elite battery management.

MCM Consulting Group was the consultant overseeing the evaluation and award.
