Motorola, Partners Modernize Polish Prison Service’s Communications
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 | Comments

The Polish Prison Service selected Motorola Solutions’ local partners Aksel and Siltec in a tender by the Polish Prison Service to fulfill a public contract to modernize its communications system.

Under the contract, all penal institutions in Poland will be equipped with MOTOTRBO Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) technology to replace the prison service’s analog radio infrastructure with a proven digital radio communications solution. The experienced consortium will modernize the public-safety radio communications systems according to the Programme for the Modernisation of the Prison Service in 2017-2020 Act, which became law in 2016.

The modernization project represents an important milestone in the deployment of the digital radio communications system for the Polish Prison Service. Within the framework of the project, the consortium of Aksel and Siltec will deliver MOTOTRBO digital radio technology from including DM4600e base stations, DP4601e portables, DM4601e mobile two-way radios and SLR5500 repeaters. The new system will also include ConSEL dispatching software to manage the system.

The next-generation technology provides improved quality, reliability and coverage, as well as secure encryption of voice communications in prison facilities and convoy vehicles. The GPS tracking function also has crucial functions allowing increased levels of security for officers operating at penal institutions — a crucial element for localizing the position of convoy vehicles or officers in prison facilities. The mission-critical communications system can be expanded for future interoperability with other public-safety agencies and organizations in Poland.

“The DMR tender award in Poland reinforces our position as a trusted market and technology leader in providing mission-critical communications solutions together with our longstanding local partners,” adds Viv Francis, vice president, channel sales EMEA at Motorola Solutions. “The transformation of the analog radio system to the latest digital radio standard means a fundamental qualitative change and improvement in the communications of the Polish Prison Service — today and in the future.”

The complete modernization of the Polish Prison Service radio system to become a fully functional, next-generation DMR system will be finalized in 2020.
