Turkish National Police selects NEC and Teksam to provide a fully integrated national telecommunication solution

PRESS RELEASE: The Turkish National Police has selected NEC and its local business partner Teksam to provide the complete communications infrastructure and related solutions for its National Police network. Covering around 1300 police stations nationwide, the solution is based on NEC’s UNIVERGE SV9100 platform, which was selected as preferred product by the Police because of its advanced and secure networking and centralized management capabilities.

The project will be rolled out in three phases and is scheduled to be finalized before the end of 2015.

Teksam, leading provider of integrated communication solutions in Turkey and business partner of NEC, will install the complete network that spans 63 large cities and 1222 remote towns. The complete infrastructure and connectivity includes besides the SV9100 communication servers also a fully integrated centralized management system.

Thorough selection process

After a thorough selection process the Turkish Police selected NEC communication servers and Teksam to provide the solution. Important selection criteria for the Turkish Police were that:

– The solution should be based on advanced IP technology and ensure remote site redundancy.

– The vendor needs to be leading technology partner, with a track record across the globe.

– The local partner needs to have a strong presence and proven expertise in large projects.

Teksam has already, as part of an earlier project, equipped the Turkish Police with communication systems for 240 police stations, as well as with 60 emergency call centers for the nation’s 112 (locally 155) service.

Prestigious project

“During the investigation it became very clear that NEC and their Turkey based partner Teksam were the perfect fit.

Cem Lokcu, Managing Director at Teksam adds: “You can imagine how proud I am on this partnership with the Turkish National Police. I am thrilled to extend the leading position we have in IT & Communications in Turkey with professional implementation of this prestigious project”.
