Improving communications at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency

Capita Secure Information Solutions (Capita) has implemented a complete integrated communications solution (ICCS) for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) while maintaining the operational viability of the MCA’s mission-critical services.

Capita visited and investigated a large number of MCA sites as part of the design and specification stage of the proposed solution. The design included 19 ICCS, 400 base stations nationwide and 120 control room desks. The Capita ICCS incorporates Windows NT and TCP/IP servers and analogue/digital (TETRA) radio interfaces.
