Chambry latest in France to move to Sepura
23rd December 2008– Chambry, capital of the Savoy region in the French Alps, is to equip its police with Sepura’s STP8000 TETRA radio.
In an order secured by SYSOCO, Sepura’s partner in France, Chambry follows the lead of many other towns and cities which have chosen Sepura radios for their mission critical communications.
Rugged and durable, the STP8000’s high transmitter power extends network coverage in this mountainous terrain, where lower powered radios could struggle. This, together with very high audio output, provides exceptionally clear reception.
The municipality’s police needed a system that is secure from the risk of eavesdropping and provides easy to use radios, and after extensive testing chose Sepura’s market-leading radios to achieve these objectives.
The municipal bus, water and refuse departments already use Sepura radios, and now all the municipal agencies will be able to communicate effectively on one shared radio network.
Pierre Letta, Marketing Director for SYSOCO, said: “This is yet another example of varying services within a town or city taking advantage of the TETRA network, to provide communications that enable increased efficiency.”
Richard Redgrave, Sepura’s Regional Director, added: “As well as being yet another municipal police force to order Sepura radios, it highlights the strong appeal of the STP8000 radio which will ensure uninterrupted coverage in this mountain region.”
