The Metropolitan Police Service Chooses FREQUENTIS to Prepare MPS for Adoption of the Emergency Services Network

On 23 December 2015, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), in partnership with the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), signed a contract with Frequentis which will lead the way in ensuring the MPS is ready to adopt the Emergency Services Network (ESN) and transition to use between mid 2017 and 2020, ensuring interconnection for the period of the handover.

The Home Office is responsible for replacing the current communications network across the UK with a next generation communica-tions system that will provide coverage for all three emergency services (police, fire, and ambulance) and other public safety users. ESN will provide critical voice and broadband data services with appro-priate coverage, public safety functionality as well as appropriate security, resilience and availability.
