Under the agreement NEC’s UNIVERGE SV9500 technology has been deployed, with the Tasmanian Government to use the technology for the Departments of Police, Fire and Emergency (DPFEM) and Health and Human Services (DHHS).
According to NEC its platform is reliable, scalable, adaptable and easy-to-manage and providing “robust, feature-rich, highly flexible communications, perfect for geographically-distributed agencies requiring a choice of deployment options”.
“Our experience in transitioning and supporting mission critical emergency systems is second to none. This is backed by the business’ dominance in supporting in the same emergency services sectors the South Australian, Victorian and Northern Territory Governments.”
NEC Australia’s managing director Mitsuhiro Murooka emphasised the importance of this “cutting-edge technology” for all Tasmanians.
“NEC Australia is proud to be a partner in such as crucial project,” he said.
“There can be few things more important that a government can provide its citizens than a reliable triple zero service.”
“NEC is respected the world over for our innovation and reliability in IT service delivery and we are pleased to have been able to cooperate with the Tasmanian government in delivering the latest technology for this potentially lifesaving service.”
