In a deal worth UKP5m to Unisys UK Ltd, Scotland Yard has upgraded its four-processor Unisys 1100/64 system to an eight-processor complex composed of two Unisys 2200/404 systems, and has also ordered a 2200/403 for the Metropolitan Police Training School at Hendon, a 2200/401 for development work, four DCP/15 distributed communications processors, as well as the subsystems, software, and services to implement the systems: the 1100/64 system mainly processes the data from 999 emergency calls made by the public, but also supports the Special Operations Room which monitors large public events in the capital; the current system supports over 600 terminals and the new 2200/404 complex will be ready in the next few months, thereby upgrading the Yard’s processing capacity enabling it to gain faster terminal responses for police work.
