Florida-based Harris Corporation has been selected by Miami Beach to modernize its critical communications network – transitioning it from a legacy analog radio system to a new digital network that provides increased reliability and functionality for 1,000-plus first responders.

Miami Beach joins other South Florida communities, which includes Aventura, Coral Gables, the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County, all whom have chosen Harris’ advanced technology to connect its first responders.

Harris will provide an end-to-end digital solution that delivers unified, interoperable communications for voice, data and applications across multiple agencies, and simplifies complex dispatch center operations.

“We are honored to partner with Harris to provide excellent public service and safety to all who live, work and play in our vibrant, tropical, historic community,” said Melissa Berthier, Miami Beach Office of Communications.
