The Utah Communications Authority (UCA) has awarded L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) a contract to provide an advanced statewide public safety network for multiple agencies and emergency responders in Utah, the company said.
UCA is an independent state agency that manages emergency 911 and interagency communications at the state, regional, local and tribal levels across Utah. L3Harris will replace UCA´s legacy radio system with a new end-to-end L3Harris P25 Phase 2 digital network that will double the capacity and increase the range of a decades-old legacy network.
The new L3Harris system will support upgraded multiband P25 radios and Symphony™ command center dispatch consoles that together enable multiple mission-critical user groups including law enforcement, public safety, utilities and public works, and other government agencies to more seamlessly communicate via voice and data.
L3Harris´ planned upgrades to the statewide network will streamline UCA´s access to the nationwide public safety broadband network, supporting their mission to coordinate with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).
