According to a statement, the technology is based on Entel’s AES-256 encrypted E-PoC P1 system and DN495 devices. The new system is anticipated to “reduce operational costs and improve performance by enabling secure connections, allowing teams to work more efficiently and safely.”

The statement continued: “The contract centres around modernising [the] existing communication system, to create a resilient infrastructure that adheres to the Border Force’s data and technology strategies.”

Philip Knight of the Border Force’s detection projects and technology team said: “Border Force’s number one priority is to keep our borders safe and secure. Reliable and secure communication systems are key to creating a resilient infrastructure for our frontline teams.”

Entel Global Product Manager, Steve Mulka, said:Entel understands a PoC system must be as robust as a traditional two-way radio system. Our E-PoC service was able to meet the precise needs of Border Force, using Tassta’s PoC software, four-network UK roaming, dual-profile, SIMs with European wide coverage.
