Incorporating Oregon’s community, small business and environmental values, the Oregon Department of Transportation’s State Radio Project
has four primary goals:
Repair or replace critical components of Oregon’s deteriorating state radio network and extend the useful life of the existing Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon State Police wireless communications systems.
Comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s deadline to transition state radios from wideband to narrowband transmission by Jan. 1, 2013, and position for future narrowbanding requirements.
Consolidate the ODOT and OSP wireless communications systems into a single unit and allow for shared efficiencies and integration between the four existing state systems.
Provide limited, local interoperability for public safety agencies and lay the foundation for expanded and improved interoperability in the future.
