IT solutions and services provider NEC Australia has secured a $39 million deal for transforming the WAN, LAN and IP telephony environments for the WA Police Force.

A statement from the company said the new network and IP telephony solution would offer much more bandwidth and end-to-end encryption.

Apart from these, a hosted Cisco IP telephony service will be set up across WA to ensure reliable communications for all officers.

More than 200 police sites will be covered over the next 12 months, with the operation taking place across 2.5 million square kilometres.

“These new GovNext-ICT services are the foundation of our digital policing capabilities in direct alignment with our vision to continue as an exceptional Police Force for our community, said Andrew Cann, chief information officer of the WA Police Force.

“Additionally, the very fundamental principles of GovNext driving the best outcomes for the state are being demonstrated with this contract.”

“The GovNext initiative is all about providing WA government agencies with the underlying ICT infrastructure to better deliver services to the community,” said Greg Italiano, CIO of the WA Government.

“The GovNext solution being deployed by NEC for WA Police Force will provide the network and communications services to support the future operational needs of the WA Police Force.

“This is consistent with the outcomes GovNext is delivering across a range of other agencies.”

“NEC has a strong pedigree in solutions for emergency services across Australia and the world and we are delighted to be working with WA Police on this important initiative,” said Marcus Ashby, state manager, NEC Western Australia.

“To be trusted with the transformation of one of the state’s most important networks that will ultimately lead to a safer Western Australia is something everyone at NEC and our partner community are very proud of.

“Our company motto globally is ‘orchestrating a brighter world’, so there is no better example of that than what we are doing here with WA Police for all the citizens of WA.”
