NZ Police extend Dimension Data partnership

02 Nov 16

The NZ Police have extended its contract with Dimension Data to provide its communication channels.

Dimension Data is responsible for the day-to-day management of the mission critical unified communications infrastructure used by the organisation. The New Zealand Police manages more than 770,000 emergency calls a year.

As part of the partnership between the two, Dimension Data provides New Zealand Police with all of the physical phones, the network they run on and the ongoing support and management to make sure all calls are made and received seamlessly.

They also ensure the phone system is integrated with other communications channels including email.

Dimension Data New Zealand CEO Jo Healey says Dimension Data is extremely proud to support the New Zealand Police in their mission-critical unified communications infrastructure.  

“The work we do with New Zealand Police is continuing to deliver excellent results,” she says.

The announcement of the extended partnership builds on the work Dimension Data is already doing with New Zealand Police across networking and other key programmes of work.

According to New Zealand Police Network operations manager Michael Perring, the partnership successfully ensures the organisation’s key communications infrastructure is well-managed, highly available at all times, and delivered under a tight operating cost model.

“We are incredibly pleased with the support services that Dimension Data provide to our critical network,” Perring says.
