Midlothian Joins Fort Worth Regional Radio System
Wednesday, October 04, 2017 | Comments

Midlothian, Texas, joined the Fort Worth Regional Radio System (FWRRS), allowing the town’s first responders to use the network’s first response communications, video surveillance, EMS traffic signaling and data communications capabilities.

The network, which is a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network, allows agencies in the greater Dallas, Forth Worth and Arlington metroplex to access and share network resources.

The hybrid fiber and wireless network extends to eight counties and is used by municipalities including Fort Worth, Crowley, Forest Hill, Haltom City, Kennedale, Lakeside, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Westover Hills and Westworth Village. More than 120 agencies use the network.

Scientel Solutions and Motorola Solutions designed and implemented the network and continue to provide support for it.

“Living in a safe and healthy and vibrant environment is what the human spirit yearns for,” said Trevor Belcher, executive vice president, Scientel Solutions. “It sits at the pinnacle of what both elected and appointed servants strive to deliver to their constituents. This can only be delivered when agencies collaborate in the deepest integrated fashion possible, and this network platform demonstrates that achievement in a profound way.”
