The project would include development of a state-of-the-art digital trunked radio system. The proposed project is fundamentally an infrastructure, a collection of radio sites located throughout Niagara County interconnected by a network, monitored and controlled by one or more operations centers.
The network would consist of a number of antennas collocated on existing telecommunications towers and/or sited on new towers constructed at locations yet to be determined. Additionally, one or more operations centers will be constructed and/or sited in existing facilities.
