Italian job for Sepura
Cambridge radio technology business Sepura has completed Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) interoperability testing with the Italian organisations Selex ES – a Finmeccanica company – and Radio Activity srl.
The DMR Association has awarded the Interoperability (IOP) Certificates following formal verified testing of Sepura DMR Tier 2 terminal with Tier 2 infrastructure from the established DMR infrastructure manufacturers.
Chris D’Aguiar, commercial VP for Sepura said: “These achievements further validate our long-standing commitment to provide customers with genuine, proven open-standards solutions. Organisations and personnel who depend on critical communications to carry out their work safely and efficiently, can be assured that Sepura DMR Tier 2 equipment is fully interoperable with equally certified equipment from other vendors.”
Peter Hudson, senior product manager for Sepura added: “Sepura is committed to open-standards technology and our DMR solution is no exception. Our DMR offering is built on our proven track record of product design and has been designed to be fully compliant with the Digital Mobile Radio open standards defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
“At Sepura we have always been committed to IOP - our TETRA radios operate on all infrastructures from all suppliers. We are one of the few digital communications suppliers to have a deep understanding of IOP and are committed to extending our impressive interoperability track record achieved in TETRA to our entire DMR product portfolio.”
Sepura radios are the only TETRA terminals approved for use on all European Public Safety Networks, including: Airwave (Great Britain), VIRVE (Finland), C2000 (Netherlands), A.S.T.R.I.D (Belgium), RAKEL (Sweden), RESCAT (Spain), GIRN (Malaysia) and BDBOS (Germany) and TETRA networks in Australia and Latin America.
