|Harris Corp. lands contract with State of Oregon|
The Harris Corp. has been selected by the State of Oregon as the radio system and service provider for the Oregon Wireless Interoperability Network (OWIN) program. The state selected Harris' P25 solution to support the communication needs and requirements and to improve voice and data interoperability among local, county, state, tribal and federal agencies.
The OWIN system will also include Unity mobile and portable radios to provide multiband capabilities in a single radio unit. OWIN follows a mandate from the Oregon State Legislature to consolidate the radio networks currently operated independently by the Oregon Department of Transportation, State Police, Forestry Department and Oregon Department of Corrections. A statewide "network of systems" will be created for mission-critical, interoperable, public safety communications. Local firefighters, police officers and emergency medical responders will be able to use the enhanced system in addition to their own radio systems.
