Taipei City Police Department Deploys
KENWOOD’s NX-5000 Series, P25 Mission-critical Two-way Radios,
Featuring EF Johnson’s ATLAS® System
JVCKENWOOD and its mission-critical P25 specialist, EF Johnson Technologies, have won a contract to deliver a P25 system solution – including radios and support services – to the Taipei City Police Department. This marks the first time that JVCKENWOOD and its affiliate EF Johnson have teamed up to secure a major contract.
Taipei has a population of 2.7 million; Taipei City PD operates 14 precincts and 94 police stations over an area of 270 square kilometers. For its scale alone this represents a considerable challenge in terms of radio communications. The solution is a cutting-edge P25 system that will improve coverage and provide secure, reliable city-wide communications.
P25 is a suite of standards developed to ensure interoperability among public safety agencies – including law enforcement, fire departments and EMS. The feature-packed NX-5000 Series and the ATLAS solution are designed to answer the demanding requirements of today’s mission-critical users, and offer KENWOOD’s renowned quality and first-class reliability, even when used in demanding environments.
Over the four-year phased migration, Taipei City PD will replace their obsolete EDACS system with an 8-site NX-5000 P25 trunked, multi-cast ATLAS® system. The package includes:
- 7,000 NX-5000 radios with AES encryption
- ATLAS® P25 system
- 9 StarGate® dispatch consoles
By investing in P25 technology, Taipei City PD has a future-proof system. They will benefit from greater choice and enjoy all the benefits of a solution that meets the complex needs of law enforcement in Taipei.
