Finnish govt to put broadband system for public institutional communications out to tender

Thursday 17 January 2019 | 16:16 CET | News
The Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications said State Security Networks (Erillisverkot) will arrange a competitive tendering among commercial telecom providers for the operation of broadband communications. This will enable the transfer of video images, for example, to make incident awareness more accurate and improve authorities' response. Initially, it will operate alongside the existing system, the Authority Radio Network, which will be phased out once the new service is fully operational.
