ICIS Nears Complete Migration To P-25
June 1, 2014
23 of the ICIS system’s 26 wide area repeater sites have been successfully migrated to the APCO Project-25 Standard for full interoperability. Partial funding has been obtained for one of the three remaining sites and the agency is actively pursuing grant opportunities needed to complete the remaining two. Once accomplished, ICIS will shine as a single-platform, state-of-the-art regional radio system that essentially blankets the entirety of Los Angeles County with public safety grade land-mobile radio (LMR) services.
