TeliaSonera signs agreement with National Police Board

TeliaSonera signs agreement with National Police Board The National Swedish Police Board (Rikspolisstyrelsen) has commissioned TeliaSonera Sweden to build the new communications platform DART2 for the Swedish police force. The agreement, signed between the National Swedish Police Board and TeliaSonera Sweden, is estimated to be worth between SEK 200 million and SEK 250 million. The agreement is valid for a three-year period and the National Swedish Police Board has the option to extend the agreement on an annual basis, although not longer than to April 30, 2010. DART 2 will be used to link communication systems for data, radio, telephony, video and alarm handling at more than 500 police stations in Sweden. The platform is to be implemented by April 2006 at the latest. "Functionality and high security are decisive when we select communication solutions and we put extremely tough demands on our suppliers," says Paul Bärlund, IT manager for the National Swedish Police Board. "Telia showed that it was capable of meeting our stringent requirements - that's why we chose them." "Our solution will give Sweden's police force a modern communications platform that can grow with the task and become an effective tool for police operations for many years to come," says Anders Gylder, head of the Large Corporate Customers Segment at TeliaSonera Sweden. According to the terms of the agreement, Telia will assume completely responsibility for the functionality of the platform. The solution is based on TeliaSonera's datacom service TeliaSonera DataNet International (DNI) and will be supplemented with other standard services from Telia's range of offerings, such as TeliaSonera HomeRun (mobile broadband) and Telia Mobile OnLine (GPRS and 3G) for mobile data traffic, enabling the police to also gain access to their operating systems when they are not at their police stations. The agreement also gives the police the possibility to use video conferencing to increase the efficiency of their operations.
