L3Harris Wins Statewide P25 Phase 2 Contract in Utah
Monday, September 23, 2019 | Comments

The Utah Communications Authority (UCA) awarded L3Harris Technologies a contract to provide a statewide Project 25 (P25) Phase 2 public-safety network for multiple agencies and emergency responders in Utah.

UCA is an independent state agency that manages emergency 9-1-1 and interagency communications at the state, regional, local and tribal levels across Utah. L3Harris will replace UCA’s legacy radio system with a new end-to-end digital network that will double the capacity and increase the range.

“The state of Utah looks forward to bringing L3Harris on board to provide a public-safety network for our first responders and agencies," said Utah Gov. Gary Herbert. “We are confident this development will make it easier for our public-safety professionals to do their jobs well and quickly."

The new system will support upgraded multiband P25 radios and dispatch consoles that will support law enforcement, public safety, utilities and public works, and other government agencies to more seamlessly communicate via voice and data. The planned upgrades to the statewide network will streamline UCA’s access to the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) network, a statement said.

“L3Harris brought new ideas and fresh thinking to the UCA, demonstrating how new technologies can deliver significant benefits in terms of cost, capability and reliability,” said Nino DiCosmo, president, L3Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. “Our contract with UCA establishes new relationships with the many agencies supported by the UCA and further expands our public-safety communications footprint in the state of Utah and the western region of the United States.”
