NSW Police outsources network support to NEC
- 09 October, 2012 16:14
The NSW Police Force has engaged NEC to supply network support and maintenance under a multi-million, three-year contract.
NSW Police has outsourced management of its multi-vendor voice and data systems across more than 500 urban and regional stations in NSW, including its corporate offices in Sydney and Parramatta.
The contact covers the department’s phones, PABX units, the Genesys call centre system, Cisco call manager software, as well as Cisco switches, routers, firewalls, wireless LAN and IP networks.
The agreement will help improve the reliability of the NSW Police’s network and provide greater support to its mission-critical operations communications and information infrastructure.
This is the key for ensuring reliable, continuous and effective customer services for NSW Police’s core communications functions, including managing incoming emergency calls from the public, NEC said in a statement.
NSW Police’s network will be monitored from NEC’s Australia-based network operations centre.

Moving to a Private Cloud? Infrastructure Really Matters!
The Cloud isn’t about locality. It is about quality of service delivery, cost, and whether the services consumed satisfy our objectives. For the enterprise, you need to select the right QoS to mitigate the inherent risks or you face the problem of losing data and the ability to execute operationally. Read on.
Endpoint Security and Virtualisation
Besides form factor, virtual systems are not really that different than physical systems. They both use the same operating systems and applications. They both present users with computing resources such as RAM and hard drives. Consequently, the ability to exploit vulnerabilities in a physical environment will present a significant threat to virtualised environments as well. This paper examines the different endpoint security methods for virtualised environments and presents how Endpoint Protection security provides optimal performance, protection and manageability.
