Commdex Designs Microwave Network for Large Statewide Communications Project in Tennessee

Norcross,  GA, July 24th, 2012 – Commdex, a wireless systems integration firm, has been selected to design a statewide microwave network to support the convergence of multiple networks within the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP). This state-of-the-art network will improve communications, efficiency, and emergency readiness of public safety agencies in Tennessee and with agencies in surrounding states.

The statewide microwave network deployment is broken into two phases and will enable broader communication access from Memphis to the Tri-Cities, as well as disparate locations throughout Tennessee. The new radio system, with its improved coverage and interoperability capabilities, will provide excellent support to state troopers, making them more efficient, secure, and safe.

Commdex has performed a variety of microwave engineering services throughout Phase I, and will assist in the design, staging, integration, testing, and implementation of the final microwave solution, which is expected to occur in August 2014. This microwave network will serve as the backbone to the statewide, interoperable communications system and is vital for stronger, more secure and better communications in both daily operations and emergency situations.

The new system will solve communications issues that have plagued Tennessee for many years. “The lack of an adequate and reliable communication system has been an issue for our agency for decades,” THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. “We were unable to share vital voice or data information via radio with our neighboring jurisdictions in daily operations or emergency response situations. The new system will enhance the ability of troopers to perform critical duties across the state.”

The first phase of the State of Tennessee Highway Patrol project is expected to be completed in July 2013.
