Cayman Islands Deploys New P25 Network
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | Comments

The Ministry of Home Affairs of Cayman Islands signed a contract with Motorola Solutions to renew the government’s radio system with a Project 25 (P25) system with coverage throughout the country, including waterways for maritime units, helping improving its public-safety agencies’ response to emergencies.

The country’s previous radio system is being upgraded with the next generation of APX radios and P25 infrastructure. This upgrade brings new capabilities, such as GPS tracking, text messages, and secure and encrypted communications.

The mission-critical communications system includes broadband push-to-talk (PTT) interoperability and allows interoperable emergency communications between multiple agencies. About 62,000 inhabitants of the Cayman Islands will have a more effective response to their emergencies with the implementation of the system that will allow public-safety personnel to deliver a faster response to the community, a statement said.

“Whether it is a scheduled event or an unexpected disaster, the system will enable a high standard of communications among stakeholder agencies within our public safety and national security framework and deliver the information required to coordinate a safe and effective response,” said Tara Rivers, minister for home affairs.
