Related Information

DoITT operates several radio systems, including a P25 trunked radio system with simulcast cells in the UHF T-Band and 800 MHz bands. DoITT has completed the first phase of its P25 Interoperable Communications Network (NYCICN). This new standards based platform enables users to operate on the next generation network, providing higher levels of interoperability and better quality communications. Current users of the system include DoITT, FDNY, NYC Office of Emergency Management’s Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), New York State DHSES, Sanitation, Parks and Recreation, and the Taxi and Limousine Commission.

This system consists of multiple simulcast cells and features Motorola's Dynamic Dual Mode (DDM) operation with 2-slot TDMA. Most users will operate in TDMA mode, with fallback to FDMA available on certain talkgroups.

Initial agencies are utilizing over 1,000 subscriber radios, with a capability of supporting between 3,000 to 5,000 radios. This system also provides for surge capacity by other users, such as the State’s Division of Military and Naval Affairs. This is especially beneficial during large scale events, such as a hurricane.
