The Brevard County 800 MHz Public Safety Radio System was built in 1990 as a four-multisite EDACS trunked system. 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 to a three-cell simulcast system configuration. The two primary simulcast cells were completed in May 2016. The third simulcast cell, dedicated to the beach area, will be implemented by the end of 2016.
The current system includes seven sites, two Integrated Multisite Console Controllers (IMC) sustaining 42 consoles and wide-area communication, as well as IP gateways and VIDA Switch for future migration to Project 25 standards. It utilizes Harris Corporation technology, supports 70 county and local agencies, and provides interoperability with the State of Florida Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS) and Florida Region 5.
