Arqiva launches next generation Police Mobile Data Solution
- Seamless access to national and local data resources for police officers out on the street
- End-to-end, fully managed data solution helps to meet increasing demands for visibility, efficiency and effectiveness
- Flexible solution tailored to individual force requirements
Arqiva’s Public Safety division today announced the launch of its Police Mobile Data Solution. The fully managed, scalable and secure solution enables a seamless data flow between the control room and police officers meaning that officers can perform essential data operations, such as confirming suspect details and vehicle number recognition, without having to return to the station. By enabling officers to stay out in the street, Arqiva’s solution allows police forces to maximise their efficiency and meet the increasing demands for greater visibility and effectiveness.
Arqiva’s Police Mobile Data Solution works by interfacing with national and local databases, such as the Police National Computer and Command & Control. Designed in conjunction with mobile data specialists Detica, the solution runs on any mobile device, including Mobile Data Terminals, Tablet PCs or PDAs. The fully scalable solution is capable of supporting multiple devices and is designed to work across all the available air interfaces – Airwave, GPRS, 3G, BT Transcomm and Wi-Fi – formatting the data to maximise the potential of the device and selecting the best network to support the data application.
Peter Harris, mobile data product manager at Arqiva commented, “Arqiva has worked in partnership with UK police forces for many years and the Police Mobile Data Solution has been designed with a clear understanding of the needs of modern policing. We have designed the solution to allow further applications to be added, meaning we can tailor the solution to each individual police force and can adapt it as new user requirements are introduced. This is the first of the next generation of mobile data solutions, designed around real police requirements and is fully capable of supporting the UK’s police forces as they move into the future.”
