Harris Corporation has introduced additional enhancements and services to its expanding portfolio of converged solutions that further extend its industry leadership in converged LTE/Land Mobile Radio technologies.

The announcement was made at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference October 7-9 in Orlando (Booth #1501).

The portfolio enhancements include:

  • LTE broadband capabilities for Harris Unified Vehicle, powered by Tait: enables first responders to deploy a vehicular-area-network on the move, with certification on major U.S. carriers anticipated by the end of 2018.
  • New XL portable radio family software release: includes multiple user interface improvements that simplify navigation and adds P25 standard Tier 2 GPS messages for location services.
  • Broadband managed services for LTE-enabled devices: offers public safety agencies affordable converged devices and easy-to-deploy data services through nationwide LTE carriers, including broadband data that can be shared with users and a cloud-based management portal to view key information and manage data, reducing overall data costs for the customer.
  • Infrastructure managed services: maximizes customer investments through preventative maintenance, system upgrades, information assurance updates and cybersecurity scans. The program can be tailored for a system’s specific needs, offering three different tiers of service and a long-term lifecycle maintenance option.

In addition to the new offerings and expanded portfolio, the Harris booth #1501 will feature demonstrations of Harris’ interoperable and future-ready solutions that help users gather data from the edge, improve situational awareness and stay connected to mission-critical applications.
