Frequentis was selected for phase two of the modernisation and standardisation of control centre technology (Program MVL) for the police in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). NRW police selected the Frequentis multimedia communication platform, 3020 LifeX, to meet the requirements for future emergency call and broadband radio communications.
Phase one of the modernisation project was carried out by Thales Deutschland GmbH. To prepare for future multimedia emergency call and broadband radio communications, the NRW police selected Frequentis AG for the continuation of the modernisation. The intensive and successful cooperation between Frequentis and Thales over the last two years – as well Frequentis’ previous success completing the project “digital radio concentrator” – convinced the NRW police that Frequentis was a reliable technology partner.
NRW is the largest police organisation in Germany, covering 50 police authorities which ensure the protection and security of a population of approximately 18 million. To cope with this challenging task, and to live up to its self-acclaimed title as the most innovative police force in Germany, the NRW police relies on forward-thinking technologies for state-of-the-art control centre solutions that will meet future demands of the service.
Phase two of the program MVL includes 50 police control centres with approximately 400 operator working positions. In the future, these will be hosted in a virtual cloud-based solution available in five networked technical centers across the region. The Frequentis multimedia communication platform, 3020 LifeX, will ensure efficient emergency call handling and operation on the public safety digital radio network as well as the interconnection of both channels.
“We are very proud to be able to continue to work with, and deepen, our long-term cooperation with the North Rhine-Westphalia Police Department, helping them to achieve their goals for innovation. We see this customer as a very important strategic partner.” Norbert Haslacher, CEO Frequentis AG.
