Denver Public Works Taps Mountain Secure Systems for Traffic Control Radios

When it comes to traffic control in and around Denver, radios are a part so extensive that it will likely surprise many. Recently, Denver Public Works announced plans to turn to Mountain Secure Systems in the provision of these radios, and Mountain Secure Systems has some rather impressive models to offer up for Denver's traffic management.

Specifically, Mountain Secure Systems is set to bring in the 900 MHz Summit line for Denver Public Works, and the Summit line has a lot going for it. Summit radios are geared to provide point-to-point coverage, as well as point-to-multipoint and even wireless mesh networks in 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz and the licensed 4.9 GHz band. From there, a variety of optional features are available, including end-to-end encryption systems and 802.11n MIMO technology, which allows connection speeds of up to 150 Mbps. Even better, the Summit line comes with a two-year warranty, and the ability to be configured in a variety of ways to best fit the situation.

Since Mountain Secure Systems is widely regarded as a top-notch provider of rugged electronics, it makes them an excellent fit in terms of providing material geared for heavy use outdoors, which is just what a traffic system would need. The General Manager of Mountain Secure Systems, Ken Dickson, elaborated on why Mountain Secure Systems continued to be the best choice for Denver Public Works—they've actually worked together previously—thanks to the excellent track record of the Summit Series. Additionally, Mountain Secure Systems has also provided wireless radios for the Chicago Police Department, a major coup given that they run one of the largest broadband wireless video surveillance systems in the United States.

Keeping traffic properly regulated is an important part of any municipality's normal operations, and as such, having the right tools on hand to do the job is every bit as important. Mountain Secure Systems' combination of an extended warranty, durable products, and a made-in-the-USA stance is likely a huge help for places like Denver Public Works when it comes to considering just who should be supplying the material that keeps traffic flowing smoothly. Mountain Secure Systems' previous successes are also likely helpful, and prove that they know what they're doing when it comes to keeping the public safe and moving along readily.
