Volvo has chosen Sepura TETRA radios for its Göteborg factory.
The TETRA communications system will be implemented for the Göteborg plant’s production and maintenance departments, replacing the existing communication platform, which had been in place since 1987. The plant has around 55,000 employees and current production capacity is 70–80 cars an hour.
The approved radio products comprise Sepura’s hand-held, mobile and gateway terminals.
The Swedish National Police Board has selected Sepura as the exclusive supplier of TETRA radio equipment that the Swedish Police will use on RAKEL, Sweden’s new national TETRA radio network.
Swedish authorities decided that Sepura’s hand-held, vehicle and gateway radios were the only products to have passed the extensive public tender test procedures for the RAKEL network.
The Swedish National Police will use over 10,000 terminals in the first phases of the national rollout, starting in April, when RAKEL goes live. RAKEL replaces the country’s ageing analogue radio infrastructure and all of Sweden's emergency services will migrate to it over the next two to four years.
As part of this agreement, a full package of installation, support and training services will also be delivered by Sepura.
