New Jersey Transit Signs 3-Year TETRA Network Maintenance Agreement
Wednesday, September 04, 2019 | Comments

New Jersey Transit (NJT), the largest statewide transit agency in the United States, entered into a maintenance contract with PowerTrunk for an additional three years.

The new maintenance contract includes 24x7 support services, remote preventive maintenance and on-site preventive maintenance, with the aim of ensuring the system’s availability remains above 99.999% of the time. NJ Transit also participates in the maintenance by providing Tier 1 support with backing by PowerTrunk.

Deployed in 2013 and serving three light rail lines and more than 4,000 buses, the NJ Transit network was the first TETRA deployment in the United States. NJT’s TETRA network coverage spans to all its bus routes and light rail lines in New Jersey.

Through this contract, PowerTrunk continues serving NJT to maintain its TETRA network, comprising infrastructure and various dispatching platforms equipped with geographic information system (GIS) and AVL capabilities.

“During the six years the system has been operated by NJT, it’s proven capable of meeting the users’ requirements and has become a showcase in the North American market proving that high-performance voice and data LMR networks with mission-critical capabilities are possible. The increasing number of our customers in the U.S. and Canada has already caused a paradigm change in the field of data-centric LMR networks in North America,” said PowerTrunk CEO Jose Martin.
