Frequentis Equips Co-Located Control Rooms in Norway
Tuesday, July 03, 2018 | Comments

Frequentis announced it is equipping co-located police and fire control rooms in Norway. Ski, the fourth co-located control center, officially opened in March.

The Norwegian police reform has been in the process of integrating 27 police districts into 12 for the past two years and co-locating fire control centers as part of restructuring to create a more efficient emergency response. The control center in Ski, in Øst (East) police district in Norway, is the fourth to be successfully co-located and was officially opened by the Minister of Justice at the end of March.

Frequentis previously equipped all 27 legacy police districts in Norway with its integrated command and control system (ICCS), as part of the Norwegian public-safety network project, Nødnett. In 2016 it received a change order to equip the 12 newly combined districts with new ICCS systems. Frequentis has also delivered new ICCS systems for the fire agencies that will be co-located in those police districts and will continue to do so for the remaining locations as they are ready.

Experience from the already co-located emergency response centers has shown that co-location allows increased professionalism that benefits the population, Frequentis said.

“Being selected to carry out these important changes highlights the trust that the agencies have in us but also the satisfaction they had in our initial installation,” said Oliver Ossege, Nødnett key account manager and managing director of Frequentis Norway. “By co-locating both the police and fire control rooms and uniting a number of police districts, emergency response units can enhance their situational awareness and information sharing.”

Nødnett is the Norwegian emergency public-safety network, a TETRA based digital radio network built specifically for police, health and fire and rescue services. The Frequentis subsidiary in Norway was initially founded in April 2014 to look after the Nødnett account partnership. Frequentis Norway also undertakes sales and customer support activities for a wide customer base within the public-safety domain, as well as coordinating all Norway-related business activities.
