We are excited to announce that Valid8.com has joined the Project 25 Technology Interest Group (PTIG) as a corporate member. Membership will provide Valid8.com the opportunity to work with like-minded individuals and companies with the advancement of digital communications technology represented by Project 25 industry standards.
As a longstanding member of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), Valid8.com has seen the importance of communications technology to public safety. By formalizing our relationship as a member of the P25 Interest Group, Valid8.com will continue to assist in ensuring interoperability of systems and resources during critical events.
Established in 1989 as a joint venture of various national and federal agencies and groups, the Project 25 Interest Group’s mission is, “To advance the design, manufacture, evolution, and effective use of technologies defined in the P25 standardization process. Most importantly, our mission is to give our members the opportunity to participate directly in decisions that will impact the future of critical communications systems being deployed for the continuing safety of our community’s citizens.”
PTIG’s goal is to create a digital radio standard for public safety that uses the radio spectrum efficiently, is inter-operable, can be provided by multiple vendors and is easy to use.
Valid8.com is eager to work more closely with PTIG through our industry leading performance, conformance and load testing capabilities. One area of value is the inter-RF subsystem interface (ISSI), where the current testing process is costly and time-consuming. To properly test ISSI, the tester must take the radio to each site and perform testing. He or she must then travel to subsequent locations to perform the testing. This process can take weeks and tie up resources. This type of testing is especially cost prohibitive to smaller manufacturers.
Valid8.com delivers solutions available today to streamline this test process. The test is easy to use, cost effective, and already proven. Valid8.com was pleased to demonstrate this at the most recent Project 25 advisory panel.
When disaster strikes, different agencies and levels of government rush in to help. They fight fires, chase criminals, and dig through rubble to save lives. They know the the value of teams working in a coordinated effort. We are excited to be a part of this important group.
