Question increasingly doubtful

There has been no official word out of New York state, but itís becoming
increasingly doubtful that the first phase of the statewide wireless network
(SWN) built by Tyco Electronics Wireless Systems (formerly M/A-COM) passed the
system integration tests that were completed on Nov. 21.

Question IL officials blind side?

AURORA -- Last month, city leaders selected the Virginia-based M/A-Com company to build the city's new $16 million public safety communications system, which they hope to have ready when the new police station opens in January of 2010.

But some of those same leaders now say they wish they had been better informed about M/A-Com's track record in New York before voting on the project, which would replace the current police, fire and emergency management radio system.

M/A-Com, a division of Tyco Electronics, was contracted in 2005 to build a $2 billion statewide wireless network in New York. The first phase of that network was meant to cover two western New York counties and was to be completed by December 2006.

Thumbs up terminate the contract

ALBANY, N.Y. (January 15, 2009) - The New York State Chief Information
Officer and Office for Technology (CIO/OFT) today announced that M/A-COM Inc., the
vendor awarded the contract to build the statewide wireless network (SWN),
has failed to deliver a satisfactory and acceptable public safety
communications network and is in default of the contract. As a result, the State has
exercised its right tofor cause and presented a demand
notice for the payment of a $50 Million Standby Letter of Credit to the State
(SLOC) without delay.
