Sepura wins major Brazilian airport deal
Cambridge UK communications technology business Sepura has secured a significant deal with a leading South American airport operator.
The company has been chosen to provide 3,200 TETRA hand-portable radios for São Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport, Brazil.
Sepura will supply the radios as part of a prestigious contract to replace the airport’s existing analogue communications system, awarded to solutions partner Alcon Engenharia.
The new digital network will provide voice and data services for staff across the airport, including airline personnel, maintenance, cleaning, security and emergency services.
A suite of applications will optimise processes such as logistics control, team allocation, positioning, image push and radio registration, promoting efficiency across the site.
The airport is consistently ranked as one of the busiest in Latin America, transporting almost 39 million passengers in 2015 alone.
“We’re extremely pleased to be working with Alcon on this prestigious contract, providing communication for one of Brazil’s most important airports,” said Marcelo Bellatini, business development manager for Sepura.
“Sepura technology empowers airport personnel with mission-critical voice and data services, promoting safety and efficiency of operations.”
