Lower Saxony police upgrade control centre comms

Police and local authorities in Lower Saxony, Germany, represented by the Central Police Directorate (ZPD), have commissioned Frequentis to supply its multimedia communication solution 3020 LifeX. The implementation of this system across eight control centres, one alternate control centre and one test system will take place in three phases, establishing a statewide standard for the control centre communication system within an IP-based system environment in Lower Saxony.

The existing Frequentis Integrated Command and Control Solution (ICCS 3020), in operation for more than 10 years, will be replaced by the next generation of Frequentis communication systems. Furthermore, it will realise the operational system interconnection of the control centres and enable interaction in case of overload or failure.

“Over the course of modernising the police and cooperative control centres in Lower Saxony, one of the main requirements, among other things, was updating the communication system,” said Marc Stothfang, Project Lead, Operations Control System Lower Saxony (ELS NI).

“Against the background of many years of good experience with the predecessor system, Frequentis ICCS 3020, in the state, the special challenges with regard to a long-term migration phase from the old to the new system, as well as the fulfilment of future multimedia communication requirements, we opted for the Frequentis successor system, 3020 LifeX.

“With this, Lower Saxony has a reliable communication system with almost identical and extensive functional features at its disposal at all times, even during parallel operation, which provides the control centres with maximum technical performance, especially in view of the current security situation.”

“The decision of the state of Lower Saxony to choose the Frequentis state-of-the-art LifeX multimedia communication system for its modernisation confirms the innovative approach we have taken during the development,” added Robert Nitsch, Frequentis Vice President Public Safety. “The longstanding partnership between the state of Lower Saxony and Frequentis will be continued and together we will provide the control centre operations with further new functions to meet future requirements.”
