The article focuses on the commitment made by Tyco Electronics M/A-COM president Chuck Dougherty that his company will fix problems in the first phase of the land mobile radio (LMR) network before New York conducts another test of the system in October 2008. The company was deemed by the state as being in default on its $2 billion contract to build a statewide LMR network. Among the system performance problems found in July were handoffs between vehicular repeaters and network towers, emergency-call function and network downtime.
