Motorola Signs $100M Deal with Australian Ambulance Service for Managed Services
Thursday, December 17, 2020 | Comments

Motorola Solutions extended its agreement to provide the Victorian government with a dedicated emergency data communications managed service for use by Ambulance Victoria.

Known as the Mobile Data Network (MDN), the network was the first emergency communications network to be procured under a build, own and operate public-private services model in Australia. It was first deployed in 2005 and provides secure mission-critical data communications for Ambulance Victoria, primarily across the greater Melbourne metropolitan region, to support the service’s ambulance dispatch capabilities.

Under the extended agreement, Motorola Solutions will keep Ambulance Victoria at the forefront of innovation by integrating a number of its technologies within a single platform. This will ensure the state’s paramedics receive the right information at the right time so they can deliver better care and outcomes for all patients.

The extended contract with the state of Victoria is valued at approximately AUD$100 million, and ensures continuity of MDN services until 2025 with options to extend for a further two years.

Con Balaskas, managing director, Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, said the mission-critical service supports Ambulance Victoria in providing safe, high-quality, timely and expert care for all of its patients.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with the Victorian government and Ambulance Victoria as well as supporting the state’s paramedics in delivering their lifesaving daily work,” Balaskas said.
