DTS is the Technology Service Provider for the Executive Branch of the State of Utah. The Agency provides a broad range of services for government agencies throughout the state. For more information on DTS Products and Services, click the links on the left.
DTS Solutions Delivery has been working with the Finance staff to produce a new on-line Billing page. This page will allow users to go to one location to find Billing information. In addition to this new Billing 'portal', customers will be able to access all of their telecommunications charges via an on-line lookup screen. To view this new functionality, just go to billing.dts.utah.gov.
The State of Utah is now on the newest mainframe technology. The IBM z10 business class processor replaced the aging Z900 mainframe processor in Salt Lake and the Z800 processor in Richfield. The new technology will result in significant cost saving for the State. Congratulations to the mainframe team for the excellent work.
DTS operates a State Wide Area Network (WAN), a gateway to the Internet, State services and applications. The Wide Area Network functions as a private fault tolerant network, connecting government agencies with enterprise-wide, intra-state network services. DTS recently completed a 20 site project to enhance bandwidth services by replacing serial T-1 connections with Ethernet services. The improved bandwidth provides increased speeds capacities 6-20x greater than the speed of a regular T-1 (1.544 Mbps). The service upgrade allows for future bandwidth capacities and increased speeds. More…
As the number of online applications brings government services ever more available to the public and as data growth increases storage requirements, server proliferation has put a strain on limited data center resources. Simply put, costs to support online services have skyrocketed. In an effort to better utilize our data center space and curb rising costs, DTS is moving toward both blade servers and virtual servers. DET has deployed three IBM BladeCenters each holding 14 blade servers. These servers use approximately half the rack space and energy consumption of equivalent rack-mounted servers. DET also has 42 virtual servers being hosted on three physical servers with room to grow. These blade and virtual technologies provide redundant support and save energy, physical space, and administration time. As DTS continues to grow and optimize its resources, emphasis will continue to be placed on making our data infrastructure ‘green’ as we strive to deliver new and expanded services to the citizens of Utah.

DTS recognizes the importance of emerging technologies related to the implementation of critical public safety communications networks, including P25 and Radio over IP (RoIP). State and federal standards for public safety networks require a migration to IP based infrastructure in support of new operational objectives and criteria. The State of Utah, in partnership with the Utah Communications Agency Network, Salt Lake City, and other local public safety jurisdictions plan to implement an IP based controller into the statewide radio interoperability network before September 2010. The Motorola 7.x Central Controller product will enhance statewide communications interoperability and provide the following benefits:
A significant potential to reduce ongoing costs, related to the inter-connectivity between remote base stations and the central controller using standards based IP networking. Existing connectivity on the statewide interoperability network uses dedicated circuit based technology.
IP based infrastructure establishes a common platform for inter-connectivity between disparate systems. Statewide interoperability is currently limited by regional zone restrictions inherent in currently deployed systems.
The Motorola 7.x controller supports conventional analog and trunked channel sharing on the same radio network. The 7.x controller also supports P25 digital voice communications and high speed data on the same Radio over IP (RoIP) network.
The Motorola 7.x controller supports the increasing data centric requirements of mission critical public safety operations. More…
