Hungary chooses Sepura radios for its Public Safety users
The Hungarian government has chosen Sepura TETRA radios to operate on the country’s national public safety network.
In November 2005 the Hungarian government signed a 10 year agreement (from 2007 to 2017) for the use of TETRA services. The total capacity of the system allows for over 42,000 public safety users. In December 2006 the government signed frame contract for the phase two delivery of TETRA terminals, which may reach in total up to 28,000 terminals.
Sepura will supply SRH3800 sGPS™ hand-held radios with fully-integrated and ultra-sensitive GPS receiver, the most consistently accurate on the market today. This provides precise positioning, even in built-up locations where other GPS devices struggle, enabling the location of public safety users to be tracked at all times, in particular when responding to emergency calls. The Hungarian government has also chosen Sepura’s SRG3500 Gateway. Sepura’s mobile gateway gives improved access to the TETRA network in areas of poor reception by forming a bridge between the trunked network and individual hand-held radios.
Kenneth Hubner, Regional Sales Director for Sepura said: “We are proud to have been selected by the Hungarian government; it is indeed an extremely significant endorsement for Sepura. This is the biggest single contract for TETRA terminals ever signed in Central Eastern Europe, and it also demonstrates and reinforces the importance of separating the procurement of the network from the terminals. By procuring separately, as it has long been the market norm, Hungarian public safety users have ensured a wider terminal offering to choose from, including not only hand-portables, but gateways and other specialist terminals”.
