Miami Beach picks Harris to modernize public safety radio network

Miami Beach has selected Florida-based Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) to modernize its critical communications network — transitioning it from a legacy analog radio system to a new digital network that provides increased reliability and functionality for 1,000-plus first responders, the company said.

Miami Beach joins other South Florida communities — including Aventura, Coral Gables, the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County — that have chosen Harris´ advanced technology to connect its first responders.

Harris will provide an end-to-end digital solution that delivers unified, interoperable communications for voice, data and applications across multiple agencies, and simplifies complex dispatch center operations. The four-site simulcast system will include a VIDA® network solution; SymphonyTM command center dispatch consoles; XL-200P multiband P25 radios; and the BeOn® mobile Push-to-Talk application.
