Police service in Australia were reliant upon analogue voice radio services to support vehicle dispatch and requests for checking details related to persons, vehicles, drivers, and locations. The voice radio network was often congested, thereby limiting timely access to critical information that could be vital to the officer's safety. To master these problems they deployed IBM. Victoria Police partnered with Motorola and IBM to roll out the end-to-end Mobile Data Network. IBM, its long-term IT services provider, designed, implemented and supports the MDN integration of existing state databases in a manner that gives MDN users secure access to these databases from their Mobile Data Terminals. IBM Global Business Services provided project management and integration design services.
