Simoco Wireless Solutions has signed an agreement to implement the first phase of a multi-phase project to provide Jamaica Public Service – Jamaica’s sole distributor of electricity – with a new Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) network. The upgrade, which will see JPS transition from an existing analog network to Simoco Xd, a DMR Tier III trunked network, will cover over 25 sites across the Island. In addition to providing advanced voice communication capabilities and improved audio quality, the new infrastructure will also be used to for data transmission. This includes new telemetry and SCADA capabilities, provided by Simoco’s Pulse technology. Simoco will be providing full systems integration, working with JPS to bring together its 700 Series of Portable and Mobile Radios, its Simoco Pulse AIR Pro Data Modems and additional technologies, including microwave backhaul communication services.
During the project, Simoco will also be providing Catalyst Communication Technologies integration and console solutions to ensure integration between JPS’ existing analog network and DMR during the transition phases.
