Fire Service to ditch paging system

Fire Service to ditch paging system

The New Zealand Fire Service (NZFS) wants to replace its paging system with a cellular network. According to tender documents released this week, the NZFS’ network paging system is not reaching all fire-fighters and does not offer full coverage.

The NZFS operates three communications centres in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Use of cellular voice services is limited to ad-hoc calls for management and administration.

However, it does have a CDMA and GSM based network for the majority of its cellular voice and mobile data and would like to improve this system.

NZFS is also interested in automatic vehicle location and location based services. These services may be integrated into the communications centres or regional stations.

The cellular hardware will have to withstand rigorous use.

The deadline for replies is Monday, June 29. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 26296.
