Christchurch-based Tait Communications has won a contract from listed Wellington telco TeamTalk to build a new nationwide tier-3 digital mobile radio network. 

TeamTalk said the investment will enable it to continue to deliver mission-critical communications to its customers, as well as to offer new services and increase revenue by expanding into the conventional radio market.

The new digital platform will open up new opportunities including the capability to interconnect different networks.

“Changes within the health and safety legislation along with the findings from the reviews following the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes mean many organisations are now considering diversity across their communications portfolio and mobile radio is critical in providing this service," TeamTalk chief executive Andrew Miller said.

“Whilst a new digital network is exciting, it is the roadmap of further integrated services that will be released over the next few years that really excites us about this investment."

Miller said the partnership with Tait Communications and other integrators will allow TeamTalk to be at the forefront of new developments and enable New Zealand to gain access to  leading technologies and solutions.

“Tait were selected following a robust RFP [tender] process including trials and interoperability testing as well as evaluation of different migration strategies," he said.

The selection of Tait reinvigorates a long partnership going back decades. TeamTalk already has the largest Tait network in the world.

Trevor Laughton, general manager of Tait New Zealand, said New Zealand's business community will now have an opportunity to realise the potential of a nationwide modern digital mobile radio network for voice and data.

"Tait is committed to the success of this investment and the agreement reflects that commitment," he said.
