April 23,2012 –Gatineau, Canada (Techreleased) – Cassidian Communications, an EADS company, today announced that it has received a contract amendment to expand its existing digital, trunked P25 Land Mobile Radio (LMR) network for public safety communications with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in the province of Ontario, Canada.
The existing CORP25 system, which was the first installation in the RCMP’s new Central Region Operation Communication System, was initially deployed in 2010 across a 360-kilometer corridor to successfully support the G8 and G20 Summits in Ontario, Canada. This next phase of the planned roll-out provides full coverage for RCMP members engaged in security, protection and law enforcement in the “O” Division.
The CORP25 system is the industry’s only true non-proprietary P25 solution. One hundred percent standards-compliant, the interoperable CORP25 solution supports multi-vendor deployments—a requirement of the RCMP at the onset of the project. Multi-vendor systems allow a customer to combine the CORP25 infrastructure with best-in-class radios, consoles and other vendor components to deploy a world-class solution that meets the needs of its users at the lowest cost of ownership.
“We are pleased to be awarded this expansion contract with the RCMP,” said Francois Begaud, chief operating officer for the Cassidian Communications land mobile radio business. “It is a further testament to our experience and expertise in digital, trunked LMR technology. We will continue to provide flexible, non-proprietary radio solutions that enable competitive procurements and offer the highest quality at the best price.”
