California County Selects EFJohnson P25 System
Friday, August 13, 2021 | Comments

EF Johnson Technologies received a $28 million contract from Santa Barbara County, California, to replace its existing radio communications system.

The county's existing public-safety radio system was at end of life and used technology that had become obsolete. EFJohnson will provide the county with a modern KENWOOD ATLAS Project 25 (P25) trunked and conventional simulcast system solution featuring a fully distributed architecture for outstanding reliability, resiliency and scalability. The solution will be further bolstered by the KENWOOD Viking P25 subscriber radio solution for county first responders and other radio users.

The ATLAS P25 trunked simulcast solution provides Santa Barbara County with the most modern and flexible communications solution in the industry, known for its disaster resiliency and self-healing capabilities. The system uses EFJohnson’s unique and patented Latitude technology based on a fully distributed architecture, making the system resilient to one or multiple failures across a wide-area network. The Latitude technology also eliminates the need for expensive central controllers or master sites, enabling users to deploy a more efficient multi-site simulcast system allowing for seamless expansion as needs and budgets change.

"We are proud to partner with the county of Santa Barbara to provide its public-safety agencies a robust and scalable radio system that will meet the County's current and future communication needs," said EFJohnson President and CEO Duane Anderson. “We are confident that our ATLAS P25 system solution will allow seamless communication between County departments and partner agencies and enable emergency responders to perform their mission-critical duties successfully.”

The new public-safety-grade radio system will provide unified communications to agencies across the county to include law enforcement, fire departments, public works and parks departments along with many other county agencies. The KENWOOD Viking radio solution includes multiband and multimode products that help provide seamless interoperability to first responders in their daily operations.
