Brevard County Public Safety Radio System
The Brevard County 800 MHz Public Safety Radio System was built in 1990 as a four multisite Enhanced Digital Access Communication System (EDACS). As technology evolved and the urban surface boundary expanded, enhancement of the radio system was imperative. In 2013, Emergency Management
received funding to expand and improve the radio system. The current system includes nine sites in a three-cell simulcast configuration, two Integrated Multisite Console Controllers (IMC) sustaining wide-area communication, as well as a Voice, Interoperability, Data and Access (VIDA) core for future migration to the Project 25 standards. It utilizes Harris Corporation technology,
supports county and local agencies, and provides interoperability with the State of Florida Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS) and Florida Region 5.
The radio system is managed by the Emergency Management 800 MHz Public Safety Radio System Group.
Brevard County adopted a Wireless Telecommunications Master Plan in 2015 as part of its effort to minimize tower proliferation by increasing collocation opportunities and maximizing the use of County-owned lands.
If you would like to collocate or request the need of a new tower on a County-owned property, please email your request to the Emergency Management 800 MHz Public Safety Radio System Group.
