Fayette County Prepares for the Most Extreme Conditions with New ATLAS® P25 Phase 2 System with Latitude™ Technology

Fayette County, GA selects JVCKENWOOD to deliver a resilient, reliable, proven and cost-effective P25 Phase 2 system solution for its public safety agencies.

When the Fayette County system reached end-of-life, the County aimed to implement a modern system solution that first responders could rely on. The Fayette County Evaluation Committee, comprising a cross-functional group of public safety stakeholders, unanimously selected JVCKENWOOD as their vendor of choice.

“We needed a reliable system to give the County the flexibility to expand over time. We were impressed with the performance of the ATLAS P25 system in Puerto Rico during Hurricanes Irma and Maria and we recognized that JVCKENWOOD offers the best communication solution for Fayette County,” explains Steve Rapson, Fayette County Manager.

The ATLAS P25 solution includes:

  • 10  Site, 8-channel, 800 MHz trunked simulcast ATLAS P25 Phase 2 system
  • 800 MHz conventional analog simulcast system
  • Multiple StarGate® dispatch consoles
  • ATLAS ISSI gateway for seamless interoperability  
  • KENWOOD Viking® subscribers with advanced P25 data applications  
  • Full turnkey services for system implementation and ongoing maintenance

 “Our commitment to our customers is to provide mission-critical communication solutions that make safe simple. We’re delighted to partner with Fayette County. With patented ATLAS Latitude technology, the proposed Fayette County system design eliminates the core problems of traditional land mobile radio systems. Leveraging an end-to-end IP distributed architecture, the ATLAS system is the most fault-tolerant simulcast system on the market today,” says John Suzuki, EFJohnson President and CEO.
