Tasmania Fire Service Connects Radio Network over IP
The Tasmania Fire Service operates over 230 fire brigades across the state of Tasmania and its islands. Facing regular fire danger, as demonstrated by the devastating fires at the beginning of this year, the service required a reliable and efficient means of connecting their radio repeater sites statewide.

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.
