Kordia Solutions to extend mobile jamming services in prisons

The NSW Department of Justice has awarded Kordia Solutions two contracts to jam mobile services in prisons at a cost of $9.6 million.

Kordia Solutions will be upgrading the current technology at the Lithgow Prison (which is a two-year contract) and installing and testing a new system that at Goulburn Prison (which is a three-year contract).

Lithgow, until now, has been the only Australian prison to have mobile phone signal jamming. Kordia Solutions, with the help of ACMA granting them exemption to the law of jamming mobile services, and the Lithgow Prison have been trialling this system since 2013.

With the success of this trial, ACMA has now granted approval for the service to be trialled at Goulburn. Introducing this type of technology is assisting Correctional Services tackle the issue of contraband being smuggled in to prisons. Since the trial at Lithgow Prison, there has been a decrease in mobile phone seizures.
