The Nevada Shared Radio System (NSRS) has awarded Harris Corporation a $108 MIO contract to provide a critical communications network that increases coverage, reliability, interoperability & functionality for more than 16K users across 90 agencies.

Nevada Department of Transportation, NV Energy and Washoe County will transition from a Harris EDACS system to a new statewide Harris P25 Phase 2 digital network. The system is designed to allow law enforcement, public safety workers, utility workers, public works and others to communicate across agencies on a statewide basis.

Harris will provide an end-to-end 126-site multicast/simulcast system, including a Voice, Interoperability, Data and Access (VIDA®) converged and integrated service platform; SymphonyTM command center dispatch consoles; XL-200P full-spectrum, LTE-capable, multiband P25 radios; and the BeOn® mobile Push-to-Talk application for integration of narrowband and broadband solutions.

“This extends a 20-plus-year partnership with Nevada Shared Radio System providing mission-critical communications capabilities for its users across the state,” said Nino DiCosmo, president, Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. “This is truly a public-private partnership, and we look forward to providing the essential connectivity that will enable Nevada’s first responders to serve their communities.”
