Cambridge tech opens up Mongolia
Digital radio technology from Cambridge-based Sepura is being utilised in the capital of Mongolia.
The Municipality of Ulaanbaatar has chosen Sepura DMR technology for its public safety organisations. The contract was achieved in conjunction with Global Telecom, Sepura's channel partner in Mongolia, and is the Cambridge company’s first contract in the territory.
Sepura’s digital solution will replace the municipality’s legacy analogue system whilst running alongside an existing TETRA infrastructure that was supplied by Teltronic – now a Sepura group company – five years ago.
The new system meets the important objective of the municipal organisation’s major initiative to address and improve risk prevention and disaster management in the Mongolian capital.
Sepura’s channel partner, Global Telecom will oversee the migration from analogue to digital communications for the entire municipality; it will be responsible for the complete installation and deployment of the new system and deliver training to the public safety user teams operating in the city.
Ulaanbaatar is the largest city of Mongolia with a population of over 1.3 million; located in north central Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar is the cultural, industrial and financial heart of the country.
It is the centre of Mongolia's road network and is connected by rail to both the Trans-Siberian Railway and the Chinese railway system.
Batgerel Chuluunnast, general manager for Global Telecom, said: “Sepura radios will be beneficial to users operating in the city's noisy streets thanks to their crystal-clear audio and will allow clear and uninterrupted communication which is a vital requirement in emergency situations.”
