Mercer County Awards Contract to Cassidian Communications

Cassidian Communications, an EADS North America company, announces today that it has finalized an agreement with Mercer County (NJ) to provide a digital, trunked P25 Land Mobile Radio (LMR) system for public safety communications. Selected to replace the county’s existing mission critical radio system, the simulcast CORP25 solution includes hardware, software, system engineering, installation, optimization and onsite maintenance.

The standards-based CORP25 radio solution will provide full interoperability between the law enforcement, fire and emergency medical responders operating across 12 of the townships and boroughs in the 226-square-mile county. The new system also will greatly improve the coverage, performance and reliability of radio communications for first responders throughout the county.

The industry’s only true non-proprietary P25 solution, the CORP25 system has an open design that enables full interoperability and supports true choice, allowing agencies to select best-in-class components from a number of different vendors. This flexible approach enables competitive purchasing, and lets customers build their networks with the best equipment for the best price, ultimately lowering the total cost of network ownership. The IP-based CORP25 radio solution also enables easy network management and cost-effective migration to future applications and services.

“We are excited to bring a fresh new business model and state-of-the-art P25 communications solution to Mercer County,” said Rich Cagle, vice president of sales, Cassidian Communications Land Mobile Radio. “The combination of our experience in P25 LMR technology, with the flexibility of our open, standards-based CORP25 system, will provide the county with the interoperability, performance and freedom of choice needed to ensure the safety of its first responders and taxpayers. With a sense of urgency and immense responsibility, we are listening to the public safety community and delivering on their vision–increase technology and decrease cost. Mercer County is a great example of this.”

Cassidian Communications continues to serve clients ranging from public safety operations to Fortune 1000 corporations to federal agencies. Collectively, the company has more than 40 years of experience deploying 9-1-1- call processing solutions, notification solutions and first-responder digital trunked radio networks.
