Danish Public Safety users praise Sepura radios
Public Safety organisations used Sepura TETRA radios at Landsstaevne, Denmark’s largest sporting event. The radios were part of the TETRA communications solution deployed by TetraStar, the largest Danish TETRA infrastructure provider whose network covers approximately 75% of the country.
Landsstaevne, which takes place every 4 years, was held between the 29th June and the 2nd July 2006. This year over 25,000 athletes from all over Denmark met and competed in the southern Danish city of Haderslev. The event’s opening ceremony was attended by the Danish Royal Family.
Sepura hand-held radios were successfully used by the organisations involved in the safety management of the event including first aid, security and event co-ordination. These groups used Sepura digital radios to direct overall activities in a smooth and seamless manner.
Jrgen Brodersen, Managing Director for TetraStar said: “TETRA technology ensured the smooth running of Landsstaevne 2006. Every evening for five days the national Danish TV transmitted for over 1 and half hours from the event. Everyone I have spoken to is positively impressed with Sepura radios – police, first aid and rescue services were extremely impressed with the radios’ eyes-free usability and sound quality”. Mr Brodersen went on to add: “We registered circa 10,000 group calls during the event and had no faults at all. The busiest hours registered approximately 200 group calls per hour. First aid was the major user with over 1,000 calls. The first aid hospital counted over 250 calls”.
Kenneth Hubner, Regional Director for Sepura commented: “We are confident that TetraStar and Sepura’s combined solution, already proven very successful in previous major projects, will reinforce the quality of TETRA to Public Safety organisations in Denmark”.
