Secure Mobile Communication System Test Successful

-- Staff Writer

Sources within the Governor-General's office have informed the Provisional Post that the new 'mobile-hot-line' system for use by the Governor-General and the High Commissioners has been successfully tested.

According to well placed sources the new communication system uses commercially available off -the-shelf software to convert lap-tops and other mobile computers into communication centres. The system was tested during the build-up to the recent hurricane, with the Governor-General contacting His Excellency the High Commissioner to Her Majesty's Province of Alberta.

The systems provides protected (though not secure) multi-party audio and video connections.

The Government has already announced plans to establish similar connections with the Earl of Rum, and leaders of the League of Small States.
