Ericsson to Provide Transmission Network to New Zealand Police
Posted on 21-Mar-2006 07:46. | Tags Filed under: News.

Ericsson has signed its longest technology contract with New Zealand Police. The 21-year supply and support agreement, exclusive to Ericsson, will provide MINI-LINK microwave radio systems, transmission products and support, to help the police
build its own internal nationwide communication network.

The network will provide high-speed communications to police radio sites and police stations. Thanks to high-capacity radios and smart traffic nodes incorporating the latest technology, the new network will carry both voice and data traffic on a self-sufficient IP network.

Richard Harkett, New Zealand Police Manager, Radio says: "Ericsson was chosen for the deal because of its extensive global expertise, local knowledge and proven performance. Its solutions are reliable and they meet our precise requirements."

Ericsson's ongoing work with the police includes the supply of key mobile security software, Ericsson Mobile Corporate Access, which the police will use in its project to turn police cars into mobile police stations.

Ericsson has also completed the upgrade of the New Zealand Police's current telephony platform in its rural areas to Ericsson IP telephony. Three thousand IP phones are installed to provide a more cost effective and efficient service. The Police will upgrade the remaining 6,500 Ericsson phones to IP telephony phones using the new server based platform MX-ONE.
