New York County Selects Federal Engineering for Network Review
Monday, September 10, 2018 | Comments

Tioga County, New York, selected Federal Engineering to provide technical assistance and develop recommendations to improve the county’s wireless public-safety infrastructure.

“Tioga County worked with a radio consultant in 2011,” said Mike Simmons, Tioga County project manager for radio communications systems enhancement. “Despite making some upgrades to infrastructure and equipment, the county continues to experience system performance issues, specifically in coverage, capacity, interoperability and paging/alerting, and has turned to Federal Engineering to help resolve these problems.”

Federal Engineering will review the system analyses, needs assessments and requirement definition reports from the county’s previous study. The firm will then conduct investigations and recommend replacement, modification or expansion as necessary to achieve acceptable mobile and portable radio coverage throughout the county.

“Because of FE’s extensive experience and background, we are confident they can resolve our issues,” said Simmons.

“Clearly, the county does not need another study that falls shorts of their needs,” said Scott Wiggins, vice president of Federal Engineering. “This project must hit the mark and deliver practical solutions that are affordable.”

Federal Engineering will use a toolset that accurately models radio network performance to assess the Tioga County network and determine performance gaps. The firm will then host a hands-on session that will allow county participants to view current system coverage and immediately see the impacts of adding and/or deleting transmitter sites.
