Brevard County Public Safety Radio System
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 completed by the end of 2018.
The current system includes eight sites, two Integrated Multisite Console Controllers (IMC) sustaining 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.
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 .
