METHODOLOGIES

Defence required a trusted and experienced Video Communications and Collaboration partner who could consult, design, install, manage and support all VC&C equipment in a secure environment.  Defence required a range of insdustry led but security focused solutions including designs and flexible support services to ensure operational costs were predictable and controlled.

 

This included the ability to provide a dedicated Videoconferencing Network Operations Centre (VNOC) that would support the Department during business hours for domsetic business use and 24 x 7 services to all Government deployed capabilities. The deployed systems include mission critical systems that support the Australian Government activities within the Middle Eastern Area of Operations (MEAO).

 

The VNOC support capability maintains standard hours to provide a cost effective ad-hoc and scheduled 24×7 support service to over 1000 sites nationally and internationaly. The VNOC needed to be able to support both ISDN and IP video networks as well as cater for fixed and deployable technologies.

 

CitadelTech provides its clients with the entire end to end solution. Audio Visual is the significant factor to a seamless VC&C solution. The audio visual supports the VC&C solution by providing the components to display the video or content, to hear the audio, and to ensure the system is running as a unified solution. CitadelTech designs take the complexities out of technology, allowing our clients to fulfil business objectives without being distracted by the technology.

CITADEL TECH'S ANSWER

CitadelTech was engaged by Telstra as the preferred VC&C technology partner to design, implement and manage the solution. CitadelTech has procurement strategies through the relevant Government panels and sole-source arrangements to meet Defence requirements since 1997.

 

CitadelTech designed a solution to supply visual collaboration and communication technology and services including consultancy, technology, implementation, maintenance, help desk support and managed services (including a dedicated VNOC) to over 1000 sites nationally.

 

CitadelTech has been operating Australia’s most secured and sensitive VNOC since 1997 in support of the entire Department of Defence and other Security focused Government departments for all of its deployed operations. Citadel Technology Solutions has the only ITIL aligned VNOC in Australia that supports ISDN and IP video networks in multiple Classified Security environments.

 

As Telstra’s VC&C technology partner, CitadelTech has maintained a continuous and sole supplier relationship with Telstra for the design, supply, and implementation of various technology and operational enhancements to the DSVE network.

 

KPI’s in this 24x7x365 mission-critical environment are naturally stringent and ServicePoint has always maintained mission critical capabilities in support of Government operational requirements.. During the last 15+ years, CitadelTech has received numerous letters of commendation from senior ranking Defence personnel for services provided during mission critical events, and commendation for our high-quality of services provided at all times.

OUTCOMES

Reduced operational costs through access to flexible service support hours to support Defence in mission critical situations.

 

CitadelTech is also a member of the Defence Industry Support Program (DISP) and has maintained compliancy for the past 15 years. The DISP requirement has allowed us to provide sufficiently security cleared and briefed personnel to meet the Australian Government’s Operational requriements.
