Motorola Solutions will deploy Australia’s largest integrated digital radio network as part of a state-wide emergency services network for Western Australian government.

The five-year, $AU40 million contract is part of a three part project tender that was issued by the Western Australian Government earlier this year.

Construction will commence in early 2012. Once complete, the network will be valued at more than $AU120 million and become one of the largest networks of its kind in geographic footprint.

Motorola secured the competitive tender to rollout the Community Safety Network project which will enable key public safety agencies including the Western Australia Police (WAPOL), Department of Corrective Services (DCS) and Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA), to communicate across a single integrated and multi-jurisdictional network for the first time.

“The new network reaffirms our commitment to equip our officers with the most resilient and advanced communication system possible and is particularly significant as it will enable police, fire and corrective service officers to communicate seamlessly across a single network for the first time, helping them enhance the safety of every person in Western Australia.” Western Australia Police Service, Deputy Commissioner, Chris Dawson said.

Motorola Solutions will also provide more than 3,250 new two-way radios for use across the three agencies, upgrade the existing Police Metropolitan Radio Network central core, and extend the digital encrypted system technology across more than 200 radio sites state-wide.

Dawson added that the network implantation would be a significant win for rural and regional communities, who do not have the appropriate communication tools at present. ®
