AT CCW, Sepura announced the release of new versions of its STP9000 series of TETRA hand-portables, and the SRG3900 mobile radios in the 344-400MHz band, which is used in China and the 800MHz band for use in North and South America, Asia and Australia.
Mark Barnby, senior product manager for Sepura, commented: ‘The 344-400MHz and the 800MHz markets are both very important to Sepura. With the delivery of the new variants of our TETRA hand-portable, the STP9000 and the TETRA gateway, the SRG3900, we are gearing up for expansion within the North American marketplace, and are also consolidating our position in Australia, China and Brazil.’
Sepura took the opportunity at CCW to announce the verification of its next generation terminal and infrastructure platforms, including multi-protocol capability conforming to ETSI PMR and 3GPP standards.
The move is seen by Sepura as an important milestone in its capacity to deliver future mission critical voice and data application solutions utilising both narrowband and broadband spectrum.
Sepura also launched a new colour handset based console, the HBC2, which has been designed to operate in the harshest working environments. It features an ergonomic design, exceptional audio and high resolution colour display and combines the functionality of a traditional radio console with a telephone handset.
The HBC2 shares a common control layout and user interface with Sepura’s STP9000 hand-held, STP8X intrinsically safe series and SRG3900 radio terminals, enabling users to switch easily between radios and virtually eliminating the need for retraining.
