The Government Wireless Network will revolutionise the way frontline police, fire and ambulance personnel communicate. The Queensland Government has contracted Telstra to deliver the radiocommunications network under a 15-year managed service arrangement.
Queensland has adopted Project 25 Phase 2 technology for the network, but its innovative application of the technology in an operational environment has achieved a new Australian standard in coverage and in-building penetration, interoperability and encryption.
The technology solution was driven by the operational and business requirements of the public safety agencies. The result is a fault-tolerant network that ensures the highest levels of radio network availability, reliability and security.
