Introducing TasGRN

Introducing the Tasmanian Government Radio Network (TasGRN). A single, unified, and digitally encrypted, Government Radio Network to service the radio communication needs of Tasmania's emergency services, land management and electricity industries.

Network Features

TasGRN is a digital, whole-of-government P25 Land Mobile Radio network. This technology delivers public safety grade functionality and standards used for emergency services communications around the world.

Advanced Encryption

Sophisticated encryption technology encodes communication at the time of transmission, meaning that only authorised users with the correct encryption key can receive the message.

Coverage & Capacity

TasGRN will deliver improved network coverage and capacity to users across the state. Users within coverage areas will be able to reliably communicate clearly across vast distances.


As a whole-of-government radio network, TasGRN supports interoperability between User Organisations when operations or incidents require communication between agencies.

User Benefits

TasGRN offers users a range of benefits to facilitate mission-critical voice communications in a variety of environments and emergencies.



Any transmission that is intercepted by a device without the correct encryption key will be indecipherable.

Audio Quality

As a digital network, audio quality is less impacted by distance or signal strength when compared to analogue.

Location Services

If configured to do so, radio aerials have the capability to detect and transmit their GPS location.

Emergency / Duress

Each radio features a dedicated emergency or duress button which means help can quickly be dispatched.

Status Messaging

Users can send Status Messages to the relevant communications centre to report on current position or activity.

Managed Service

24x7 support from our Service Provider and their partners as part of a fully managed service.
