Munich underground landmark for Sepura radio
Cambridge CommsTech company Sepura has deployed its 500,000th TETRA radio in Germany, with the landmark device being put to work on the Munich city underground rail network.
Stadwerke München has been running a major project to renew the radio system in the network. As part of this solution, network managers have selected Sepura – through its German partners SELECTRIC Nachrichten-Systeme GmbH – to provide a fleet of over 1,800 SC20 TETRA radios and accessories for the new network.
Hendrik Pieper, Managing Director at SELECTRIC, has worked with Sepura since the manufacturer first entered the German market.
He said: “Sepura products are known around the world as tough and reliable. We have achieved success in the world’s largest TETRA market by combining Sepura products with outstanding customer service to users in public safety and commercial organisations throughout the country. We look forward to continuing to support these customers in the future.”
As well as the Sepura handheld radios, SELECTRIC’s winning response included fist microphones and charging pods specially developed to customer specifications for use in the vehicles.
SELECTRIC also managed the integration of the TETRA communication network into the existing control centre, programmed the Sepura TETRA radios, provided training for radio users and guided the deployment with extensive technical support. The full transition into active operation is expected at the end of 2023.
Hooman Safaie, Regional Sales Director at Sepura said: “We are proud to reach the landmark figure of half a million radios deployed in Germany.
“We are increasingly seeing commercial organisations with mission critical needs such as Stadwerke München adopting Sepura radios and benefiting from the proven, robust design and flexible features that can be built around their operational needs.”
