The Tasmanian government has unveiled its new Triple Zero emergency response platform, built and implemented by NEC Australia.
NEC provided its UNIVERGE SV9500 technology to replace a Telstra analogue telephony service that was scheduled for decommissioning earlier in 2019.
The UNIVERGE SV9500 is a communications server for enterprises and larger organisations, which supports voice, unified communications and collaboration, unified messaging and mobility needs. The server is suitable for geographically-distributed agencies that require a choice of deployment options.
As part of the deal, NEC also partners with Tasmania’s Department of Police, Fire and Emergency (DPFEM) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
“NEC Australia is proud to be a partner in such as crucial project. There can be few things more important that a government can provide its citizens than a reliable triple zero service,” NEC Australia managing director Mitsuhiro Murooka said.
“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.”
NEC said it will retain ownership of all hardware and software, and will also manage the system for five years.
