XO Communications notified COIRS that they will be performing upgrades to the network switches that support our radio system between Saturday 07/18 @ 23:00 and Sunday 07/19 @ 06:00. There will be at least one connectivity interruption of up to 15 minutes during this time frame that will cause the system to go into site trunking. Dispatchers will need to be ready to use back up radios/walkies during this outage. Field units may receive the “SITE TRUNKING” notice on their radios, but can continue to operate on their normal talk-groups.
If you have any questions/concerns about the outages, please contact Jay Somerville
