Sepura reaches Peru
Lima, Peru’s capital city has chosen Sepura TETRA radio terminals for use in the municipality of Surco, its cultural and historic centre. The radios will operate on digital infrastructure supplied by Thales that will later be extended to a larger system that will include all of Lima’s other nineteen municipalities. The Lima-based systems integrator Mastercom will carry out the implementation of the project for Surco.
Sepura will supply SRH3800 sGPS™ hand-held radios. The terminals’ fully integrated and ultra-sensitive GPS device will provide accurate location of personnel even in built-up areas and inside most buildings, thus improving resource management and users’ safety.
Javier Snchez Benalcazar, Managing Director for Grupo Mastercom commented, “We were particularly impressed with Sepura’s commercial and technical post-sales support. Sepura answered all our queries in record time making us forget that they were on the other side of the Atlantic! In addition, such high levels of support enabled the fast rollout of the system, which allowed us to meet our customer’s tight deadlines. This is the first digital trunked system to be installed in Peru in six years. The fast turnaround time of approximately one month from order to shipment was a great way to close 2006”!
Tim Mills, Regional Sales Director for Sepura said, “This is another important win for Sepura in Latin America and further evidences our strong commitment to the region. Today we are active in a variety of significant projects in the continent, with our radios now in use in Argentina, Panama, Brazil and Mexico. TETRA’s adoption in Latin America is accelerating strongly and at Sepura we look forward to playing a significant part in this acceleration.”
