STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson has signed its longest technology contract ever with New Zealand Police. The 21-year supply and support agreement, exclusive to Ericsson, will provide MINI-LINK microwave radio systems, transmission products and support, to help the police build its own internal nationwide communication network.

The network will provide high-speed communications to police radio sites and police stations. Thanks to high-capacity radios and smart traffic nodes incorporating the latest technology, the new network will efficiently carry both voice and data traffic on a self-sufficient IP network.

Richard Harkett, New Zealand Police Manager, Radio says: "Ericsson was chosen for the deal because of its extensive global expertise, local knowledge and proven performance. Its solutions are reliable and they meet our precise requirements."

Lars Lönnstig, Sales Vice President, Ericsson Business Unit Transport and Transmission, says: "Ericsson is pleased to be able to extend its already long-standing relationship with the police. We have been working with the police since the early 80s. Ericsson is very proud to provide expertise and support to an organisation whose core value is to ensure public safety."
