No surprise the county went with Harris. It's a bit ironic that the current Harris system never worked as advertised, as stated in the article, but the telecommunications geniuses here went right back for more. Hopefully the taxpayers will get what we paid for this time around.
I would love to see the other manufactures submissions to the original RFP.
Why the county didn't go P25 originally is beyond me. It would have opened up competition, extended the useful life of the system, enhanced interop with surrounding counties and saved money. Instead we bought a multi million dollar, proprietary system that for all intent and purpose is obsolete and unserviceable not 10 years after commissioning.
