Global P25 Systems Number 2,350
Monday, September 09, 2019 | Comments

The Project 25 Technology Interest Group (PTIG) announced 2,350 Project 25 (P25) trunked and conventional systems in countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

The list of global P25 networks, last updated in 2017, now includes 1,016 P25 trunked systems and 1,334 conventional networks. There were 193 new P25 trunked systems identified since the last update.

Another trend includes a migration from P25 Phase 1 to Phase 2 systems. P25 Phase 1 systems decreased from 728 to 652 systems, while Phase 2 systems were up from 188 to 363 known systems.

In addition, 93 P25 systems have been merged or consolidated into larger regional or statewide P25 systems and are no longer listed as stand-alone systems. The total with consolidations removed is up 100 systems from the 2017 list.

Public safety remains the primary user type with Department of Defense (DoD) and federal agencies being the other primary user groups. Additional P25 systems were recognized for public works, utilities, corrections (nonfederal), business, airport/transportation and universities. Thirty-seven statewide P25 trunking systems are listed.

800 MHz continued to be the most-used frequency band for P25, followed by UHF low band (380 – 420 MHz) and 700 MHz.

The lists were updated in June. Trunked systems are here, and conventional systems are here.

It is quite interesting. The continent of Africa does not exist. Although we have P25 systems in West Africa they are not mentioned. Maybe it is an embarrassment to the P25 association that there are networks in Africa.

Dear Sir

Request you to cover the Indian market too and add to the P25 trunked and conventional coveted list.

Leon and Vilas
At PTIG we remain keenly interested in learning about P25 systems oustside of the USA. I know our international listing is incomplete for many regions of the world. Please send me any information you have on your P25 systems, and I will gratefully update our list.

My email is: Thank you.
