Bermuda Releases RFP for New Public-Safety Radio System
Friday, October 13, 2017 | Comments

The government of Bermuda released a request for proposals (RFP) for a public-safety radio system.

The existing radio systems operated by Bermuda public sector bodies were implemented more than 20 years ago and have become technologically obsolete, the RFP said. The RFP encompasses a “turnkey” project to provide the Ministry of National Security (MoNS) with a new digital trunked radio system. Turnkey is defined as providing all necessary design, hardware, software, interfaces, project management, documentation, installation/engineering and training services that meet requirements and performance standards for one price.

The new specifications call for the selected vendor to guarantee 95 percent coverage over all of Bermuda, which could mean more sites across Bermuda. They also require interoperability between users, which in many cases, is not possible because of the various radio systems in use. The new radio system will integrate all of the island's radio users on a common platform.

The primary objectives of the procurement are to replace obsolete radio equipment, provide a common technology platform between all users on Bermuda, provide the capability to transmit and receive data that can be interfaced into existing and future planned data networks, and improve radio coverage and performance of all public-safety and government radio users.

Proposals are due Nov. 29. More information is available here.
