The Solution

Tasmania Fire Service

Using a combination of IPR100 (single port) and IPR400 (four port) RoIP interfaces, the fire service was able to connect their analogue radios across an existing IP network. By doing so they have significantly reduced their running costs by removing the expensive radio links and have greatly increased the flexibility of their network.

Furthermore, the interconnections between the radios and the control room have become more reliable since they form part of a mesh IP network.


Ready for Action

By utilising the power of Radio over IP, the Tasmania Fire Service is better prepared to support the radio network’s demands now and in the future.
