Commdex has been awarded a major subcontract to provide microwave engineering & construction services in Isle of Wight County, VA.
Online PR News – 26-January-2017 – Atlanta, Georgia – Commdex, a wireless systems integration firm, has been awarded a major contract to provide microwave engineering and construction services as part of an effort to build a new public safety radio system for Isle of Wight County, Virginia. The new system will improve communications, efficiency, and emergency readiness for critical agencies countywide. It will replace the county’s out-of-date system, allowing dispatchers and first responders to quickly relay information and coordinate effective responses to keep the public safe in emergency situations.
The new 800MHz public safety radio system will address the coverage and quality issues that have plagued the county for many years. At an Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors meeting in December 2014, County Officials released examples of poor 911 radio calls to show the current radio system as insufficient for public safety use and the danger it posed to first responders and the general public.
Commdex will perform a variety of microwave engineering services, and will supply microwave design, installation and configuration services to provide connectivity for multiple sites to the Isle of Wight radio system. This microwave infrastructure will serve as the backbone to the county-wide, interoperable communications system and is vital for stronger, more secure and better communications in both daily operations and emergency situations. Commdex will also manage construction activities and oversee site development, deliver architecture and engineering services, and ensure that the project is executed on time through project scheduling activities.
According to Commdex President, Prince Niyyar, “Commdex is proud to partner with Motorola Solutions to implement the latest microwave networking technology in their new, state-of-the-art radio system for the public safety officials of Isle of Wight County.” Niyyar continued, “Our mission is to help our customers save lives, and Commdex is honored to play a role in deploying a critical communications solution that will successfully support these agencies for years to come.”
