French municipal police force chooses Sepura radios
The City of Nmes, in France, has chosen Sepura TETRA terminals for its municipal police force. The TETRA radios will be used within the framework of a digital geo-localisation service implemented by the French company SyS&COM.
In 2003, the City of Nmes implemented a new digital radio communication network based on the TETRA standard. This was driven by two main factors: the need to improve radio communication between city departments and the gradual implementation of new services aimed at improving the job of the city’s administrators and, specifically, user safety. These innovative projects hinged on the highly accurate, sensitive and efficient data transmission provided by the TETRA standard, in particular for applications such as flood monitoring and vehicle location via GPS.
Sepura mobiles and hand-held radios, with their fully integrated and ultra sensitive sGPS, indicate the accurate location of their users even in built-up areas and inside most buildings, thus improving resource management and safety of police officers. Sepura TETRA terminals will also soon be adopted by the department responsible for green spaces and city hygiene.
Richard Redgrave, Regional Sales Director for Sepura, commented “The city of Nmes is an excellent example of innovative management and administration. At Sepura we welcome the opportunity to be a part of initiatives such as these, and are convinced that our radios will improve safety and effectiveness of their users”.
