Harris Trunked Infrastructure Achieves P25 Phase 2 Compliance
Friday, October 12, 2018 | Comments

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) declared Harris’ MASTR V P25 base station compliant under the updated requirements of the Project 25 (P25) Compliance Assessment Program (CAP), including P25 Phase 2 TDMA operation.

The MASTR V base station was designed specifically for mission-critical applications and provides secure P25 Phases 1 and 2 trunked and conventional interoperable communications on a secure and scalable IP network. P25 CAP ensures LMR equipment complies with standards for interoperability and performance as determined by formal, independent testing in DHS-recognized P25 CAP laboratories.

Congress directed the creation of the P25 CAP in 2005 as a partnership between the DHS Office of Interoperability and Compatibility, industry and the emergency response community. The program’s initial focus was on the Common Air Interface — which MASTR V supports — allowing for over-the-air (OTA) compatibility between radios and base station equipment.

“Harris has achieved an important milestone with the successful declaration of compliance — among the first in the industry for Phase 2 — of our MASTR V P25 trunked infrastructure from the DHS P25 CAP,” said Nino DiCosmo, president Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. “Harris is committed to the P25 Compliance Assessment Program because our customers value products that are built on open standards.”
