The eastern end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula consists of three counties - Chippewa. Chippewa country needed to improve public safety communication and they wanted to achieve economies of scale. To accommodate additional call volume from the other two counties, Chippewa County needed to replace its existing dispatch system with a solution that delivered more bandwidth. To master these needs Chippewa chose Motorola. Chippewa County selected a Motorola PTP 49600 wireless Ethernet bridge, utilizing the 4.9 GHz licensed public safety spectrum. The system consists of an MCC 7500 series console and a 4.9 GHz Point-to-Point wireless Ethernet Bridge for connectivity to a gateway to the MPSCS network.
