Frequentis Awarded NG 9-1-1 Contract for Maryland State Police (7/30/12)
After a competitive procurement spanning two years, the Maryland Department of State Police (MDSP) received contract approval for a multiyear Frequentis Protect next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) call-taking solution.
With a total term value of $7.1 million, MDSP and Frequentis will conduct a systematic and phased rollout of the platform, transitioning the state police and its partner stakeholders to an NG-ready environment. The 22 barrack upgrade will benefit Governor Martin O’Malley’s strategic public-safety initiative for interoperability. The solution embraces the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) i3 architecture.
The solution will also help the state achieve another of the Governor’s initiatives of transitioning to the One-Maryland Broadband Network. Use of networkMD, the fiber backbone being deployed and managed by Maryland Department of Information Technology (DoIT) will provide a more efficient and cost-effective means of serving the state’s communications needs.
“Frequentis worked with us and all the stakeholders through what was a very detailed and diligent procurement process, proving to all that we not only made the best technology decision but an excellent partner investment,” said Michael Roosa, Maryland State Police CIO. “Frequentis brings us a technology advantage, which will bring our barracks to the future of how emergency communications and information exchanges will occur.”
