Sepura wins another airport contract in India
13th August 2008 – Sepura has won a further contract in India at the new Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, to supply TETRA radios for secure voice and data communications.
Hyderabad is the only international airport in India’s fourth largest state of Andhra Pradesh,which has a population of 75 million.
This order follows a recent sales win at Bangalore, another of the sub-continent’s new, purpose-built airports. Both contracts were secured by Nokia Siemens Networks, a Sepura partner and distributor in India.
Most services within the airport will benefit, such as baggage handling, fuel supply, maintenance, catering, immigration, customs and security. The radioswillalsointegrate with other IT and communication systems within the airport.
The contract providesSepura’sSRH3500 Hand-held and SRM3500 Vehicle radios. The 10watts of transmitter power from the SRM3500 extends the range of coverage when airport vehicles need to go beyond the far reaches of the airport.
Kevin Graham, Regional Sales Director for Sepura in Asia Pacific, said: “This business win in India emphasises the continuing growth of Sepura in the sub-continent, and once again reflects our outstanding track-record in supplying airports around the world.”
Lorenz Millinger, of Nokia Siemens Networks, said: “We have used Sepura radios successfully in many different situations across the world and they meet all the criteria needed in fulfilling the demanding requirements of such an advanced airport.”
