Sepura secures new contract with Catalonia police
Acisa, Sepura’s official distributor in Spain, has won a contract in a competitive tender to supply TETRA hand-held and vehicle radios to the police force in the Catalonia region through the Catalua Department of Home Affairs.
This latest order follows a previous contract that was well received by the users, and consolidates Acisa’s and Sepura’s prime position in Spain’s TETRA market.
The contract follows the decision in 2005 by the Catalua Autonomous Government to switch from TETRAPOL to the TETRA network to equip Mossos d’Esquadra, the Barcelona region’s elite police force.
This migration of the digital infrastructure was planned in phases, and the 2007 round of contracts for the Mossos Police Project is for SRG3500 in-vehicle radios (all with Gateway/Repeater) and SRH3800 sGPSTMhand-held radios (all with Repeater functionality).
Emanuele Algieri, Southern Europe Sales Director, highlighted the sales win, saying: “This contract confirms the dedication and total focus of Acisa and Sepura in Spain’s competitive TETRA market.
“Our customer appreciated the technical support coupled with the enhanced performance of Sepura radios. Not only are the products robust and easy to use, their innovative technology gives police the ultimate communication tools to combat crime and to ensure an efficient service to the community.”
These innovations include:
GPS module within the radios to track the location of all police personnel and vehicles.
Air and end-to-end encryption to ensure maximum security.
Continuous communication even in network blackspots thanks to Gateway/Repeater functionality.
