All three zones are connected by a microwave backbone so that all communications can have access to any site in the system provided. They have sufficient permissions in the network controllers.
Regional network operation centers are located in Chattanooga, Nashville and Jackson. They give the State of Tennessee technicians' visibility of all network assets and can act as a backup to each other should a network operations center be offline. The network is also monitored by Motorola Solutions in their system support center by trained operators to detect any issues that may occur no matter when it happens.
TACN provides mobile coverage at 97 percent reliability over most of the entire State of Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. Enhanced portable coverage is required around major cities and where local governments have joined with the state in providing that for their operations.
The Tennessee Valley Regional Communications System covers more than a dozen counties in northern Georgia and southeastern Tennessee. Local officials obtained more than $20 million in federal grants to fund the new Project 25 digital radio system. The regional network operates on both the 700MHz and 800MHz radio bands. This allows all public safety first responders to intercommunicate with each other on a common interoperable platform during local emergencies or widespread disasters. The system has now officially become part of the State of Tennessee's Advanced Communications Network (TACN). In Tennessee, Anderson, Blount, Bradley, Hamilton, Knox, Loudon, McMinn, Meigs, Rhea and Roane counties are utilizing the system. In Georgia, Catoosa, Dade and Walker counties are utilizing the system.
Whether you simply need new radios, console additions or tower sites, joining the network is easy.
With infrastructure maintenance and software upgrades included, your agency can take advantage of the most efficient and cost-effective P25 system without having to worry about the complexity of new technology.
