As part of the NSW Telco Authority’s Critical Communication Enhancement Program (CCEP), NEC Australia will deliver wireless backhaul technology, professional services, network management systems and ongoing support.

The program represents the first step in the NSW Government’s Operational Communications Strategy, which seeks to provide better coverage and service to essential services agencies.

NEC’s agreement includes around-the-clock helpdesk support and advanced logistics services from its Australian technical service centres.

The first phase of its contribution is part of the CCEP Pilot Project covering 25 sites in NSW’s northwest region, and using NEC’s iPASOLINK VRultra-compact microwave communications system and (UNMS) network management system to facilitate interconnectivity of sites.

“The agreement with the NSW Telco Authority under the ITS 2573 scheme is another example of NEC’s leadership and expertise to provide mission-critical wireless solutions that will enable the NSW Government to build a secure and resilient critical communication infrastructure for incident first responders,” said Andy Hurt, director of sales and solutions at NEC Australia.

The government’s 2016/17 Budget allocated $63 million to the first year of the CCEP.
