On November 18, 1993, the Volusia County Council approved a competitively
solicited contract with Ericsson Inc., now Harris Corporation (Harris), for the
purchase and implementation of an 800 MHz Public Safety Radio System. System
reliability and performance has been achieved over the years through a continuous
system maintenance program, addition of tower sites to improve coverage, and
periodic system component and technology updates.
The County of Volusia’s (County) legacy radio system is approaching its “end of
{{Tracker _Phase2}}
life” with factory equipment support ending in December of 2017. The local
maintenance provider will continue to support the system for two to three additional
years, parts availability permitting. The County recognizes that although radio
system components can, and often do, continue to operate beyond published “end
of life” dates, there are a number of associated risks. The County believes the
technology upgrade has been pushed out as long as safely possible to gain the full
life of the existing technology and investment, and to provide agencies time to plan
and budget for associated costs. With this in mind, the County has initiated planning
and budgeting for radio system upgrades, which will incorporate standards based
P25 radio system technology, to ensure that the radio system has the ability to meet
the changing requirements of public safety first responders in the future. The P25
radio system implementation is expected to take two to three years, with first
responders migrating within the first 12 to 18 months, followed by non-public
safety system users. The P25 system implementation will include integration of
key system features between the legacy EDACS system and the P25 system during
the migration.
The goal is to implement a P25 Phase 2 radio system to support public safety in
Volusia County and to significantly simplify and improve communications during
mutual aid emergencies. Within the Department of Homeland Security’s Florida
Region 5, Lake, Orange, Seminole, Osceola, and Martin counties have
implemented or are implementing P25 systems. Flagler and Brevard counties are
currently planning to migrate to a P25 radio system technology.
