Harris Wins Contract to Upgrade Nevada System to P25 Phase 2
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 | Comments

The Nevada Shared Radio System (NSRS) awarded Harris a $108 million contract to provide a critical communications network that increases coverage, reliability, interoperability and functionality for more than 16,000 users across 90 agencies.

Nevada Department of Transportation, Nevada Energy and Washoe County will transition from a Harris EDACS system to a new statewide Harris Project 25 (P25) Phase 2 digital network. The system is designed to allow law enforcement, public-safety workers, utility workers, public works and others to communicate across agencies on a statewide basis.

Harris will provide an end-to-end 126-site multicast/simulcast system, including a Voice, Interoperability, Data and Access (VIDA) converged and integrated service platform; command center dispatch consoles; Long Term Evolution (LTE)-capable, multiband P25 radios; and a mobile push-to-talk (PTT) application for integration of narrowband and broadband solutions.

“This extends a 20-plus-year partnership with Nevada Shared Radio System providing mission-critical communications capabilities for its users across the state,” said Nino DiCosmo, president, Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. “This is truly a public-private partnership, and we look forward to providing the essential connectivity that will enable Nevada’s first responders to serve their communities.”
