Magdalene to provide Essential support to Tait for Entropia Digital.

Magdalene are working with strategic partner Tait to provide support and implementation services for the new Entropia Digital service for Greater London. Tait will provide 24/7 technical support via Magdalene’s network operations centre and service support through their UK wide support teams under the Tait Service Advantage programme.

Entropia Digital has signed a long term agreement with critical communications systems provider Tait Communications to provide a DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) network covering Greater London, along with terminals and technical support.

Entropia’s CEO, Philip Vercruysse said Tait’s proven track record in deploying large scale networks and its willingness and ability to adapt made Tait a perfect partner for this new strategic relationship. “The relationship between Entropia and Tait goes back many years and we share similar origins,” said Vercruysse. “Tait has significant experience and credibility in mission critical wide area networks, so we’re very comfortable in choosing them as our partners for this significant new venture. What’s even more important to us is the fact that Tait has listened to what we need and tailored the solution to our precise requirements. That kind of agility and adaptability is a rare thing.”

Entropia will deploy 980 channels infrastructure to provide coverage in Greater London for thousands of users of portables and mobiles. The network roll-out will commence in London before expanding to the South East and other key metropolitan areas such as Birmingham and Manchester. In addition to high redundancy mission critical infrastructure and terminals, Tait will provide technical support through its UK services partner, Magdalene, giving Entropia peace of mind as it adopts the wide area platform for the first time.

“We are very pleased to be able to support Tait with this exciting new project. The Entropia service will bring new and innovative PMR services to the capital. Our nationwide services mean that we will be able to support Entopia’s expansion plans across the UK.” said Keith Lamport, Magdalene Sales Director.
