The Mississippi Wireless Information Network (MSWIN) was designed with a simple, straightforward objective: Get the right information to the right people, in the right place, at the right time. With this objective in mind, the MSWIN system is a robust architecture with disaster recovery features that will provide reliable communications under extreme conditions such as hurricanes, ice storms, and floods.
MSWIN is a P-25 700 MHz LMR public safety communication system which is designed to provide 97% mobile area coverage statewide via multiple sites. MSWIN is the only statewide interoperable emergency communication voice and data network available for use by both state and local public safety entities. MSWIN is designed to allow any manufacturer’s P-25 compliant radios to operate on the system. This type of system offers the following benefits:
- The ability to coordinate communications with other agencies or jurisdictions.
- The ability to purchase radios from more than one vendor.
- The ability to share resources to enhance communications and control costs.
MSWIN serves the State of Mississippi by providing reliable redundant communications for our state’s first responders. The MSWIN System consists of over 144 tower sites and a point-to-point microwave backhaul network. MSWIN is monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days per year to ensure that it is available at all times.
The WCC staff is highly trained and dedicated to ensuring the system is available every second of every day. Mutual aid/interoperability talkgroups are inserted in all MSWIN subscriber radios to ensure optimum statewide interoperability.
