Harris Corp. has secured a contract to supply 900 mobile digital radios to Rockwall County, Texas in support of the jurisdiction’s efforts to update its radio platform for public safety operations.
The contract is for the second phase of the APCO P25 project and covers the Harris-built XL-200P LTE-based radio, Symphony dispatch console platform and BeOn mobile application for push-to-talk communications, Harris said Wednesday.
The company will also provide a National Fire Protection Agency standard-compliant fire alert system through its alliance with Westnet.
The updated radio system will work to support over 600 users from the county’s five cities.
Harold Eavenson, a sheriff at Rockwall County, said the updated radio system aims to meet the communication needs of the county’s first responders.
