Swedish deal for Sepura
Södertörn’s fire defence association has upgraded its TETRA digital radios for use on the Swedish Rakel network to Sepura terminals, thanks to Sepura’s partner in Sweden, Swedish Radio Supply.
Södertörn has responsibility for the Botkyrka, Ekerö, Haninge, Huddinge, Nacka, Nykvarn, Nynäshamn, Salem, Södertälje and Tyresö municipalities. In total these areas cover over 600,000 residents, protected by 21 fire stations manned by over 500 employees.
Södertörn Fire Department also runs the rescue centre for the entire Stockholm County which is responsible for preparing resources and leading rescue operations.
Having joined the RAKEL network in 2012, Södertörn already had TETRA digital radios in place but recognised the need to upgrade to superior audio quality and more powerful receive functionality to achieve better range.
