Georgia city awards $7.7M contract to RF Communications

Rochester Business Journal
November 13, 2012

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has been awarded a nearly $7.7 million contract with the city of Macon, Ga., to support the city’s police and fire departments, along with the Bibb County sheriff’s office.

The contract includes providing nearly 700 radios, along with modems.

“Modernization of our legacy communications system called for a cutting-edge yet standards-based system to deliver necessary voice and data capability and true interoperability to our first responders,” said Dale Walker, Macon’s chief administrative officer, in a statement. “The Harris solution proved to be the most fault tolerant option to give Macon’s public safety agencies the reliability, connectivity and functionality they need.”

RF Communications employs some 2,300 workers.
