Cassidian Communications completed an agreement to supply the city of Westminster, Colo., with a digital, trunked Project 25 (P25) radio system for public-safety communications. Cassidian Communications will provide the city with a two-site, 10-channel 800 MHz network, including hardware, software, system engineering, installation and maintenance.

The open, standards-compliant network will replace the aging network currently used by Westminster’s police and fire agencies. It will allow personnel from the city’s police and fire departments to communicate with each other, as well as with responders on other P25 networks in nearby municipalities. The network will also provide the city with improved coverage and increased capacity. The system is scheduled to be live by the end of 2013.
“Having used Cassidian Communications’ 9-1-1 call-taking equipment inside our emergency call center for over 13 years, we are very familiar with the quality of their public-safety communications solutions,” said Russ Bowers, public-safety communications administrator for the city of Westminster. “We are confident that the new radio system will perform with the same reliability and efficiency we have come to expect from the company.”
The contract is Cassidian’s first P25 network in Colorado. Westminster is located between Denver and Boulder and is home to more than 107,000 residents and 3,000 businesses.
