Brazilian success for Sepura and Teltronic’s partnership
The Secretary of Public Safety of the Brazilian State of Bahia has chosen a Teltronic NEBULA TETRA System for the state’s secure communications requirements. The contract awarded to Teltronic includes the supply of over 2000 Sepura hand-held TETRA radios.
The network will offer powerful, advanced voice and data communication services to the Public Safety organisations of the Brazilian north-eastern state. It will be operated and managed directly by the headquarters unit of Bahia’s Public Safety department.
Civil and Scientific Police Forces, the Military and the Fire Brigades will share the network which covers a vast geographic area. This territory includes the capital city Salvador, with over the 3-million people, the city of Feira de Santana and the BR-30 highway which runs between the two cities.
Bahia’s Public Safety organisations will use Sepura TETRA radios which will enable the users to transmit both voice and data in addition to GPS-based vehicle and hand-held terminal location data. The radios will also be used for handling incidents, statistics generation and call transfers to the existing telephone call centres.
Jens Thostrup, International Sales Director for Sepura commented This success in Brazil is significant for Sepura and Teltronic. Latin America is fast adopting TETRA and as such is a strategically important market for both organisations.”
