Sepura wins TETRA radio deal for Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport

Sepura’s STP8000 handheld radios chosen for their sound quality, safety and security features

Sepura wins TETRA radio deal for Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport

Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport in France has selected Sepura TETRA terminals for its radio and communication needs following the recent deployment of a new digital communications system that replaced four legacy analogue networks.

Sepura’s STP8000 hand-held radios, together with SYSOCO’s DIGICompact TETRA System and DIGIProtect over TETRA network tracking solutions were chosen to deliver the outdoor and in-indoor radio localisation, real-time guard tour management and man-down capabilities. 

Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport’s technical staff selected the Sepura STP8000 hand held radio because of its superior sound quality – which ensures workers can communicate whatever the background noise – and its robustness. In addition, the radio incorporates important security and safety features such as GPS positioning, an emergency button, and motion sensing technology that generates automatic man-down alerts.

Alongside seamless voice and data communications for operational, public safety and security staff, the new shared TETRA network delivers lone-worker protection thanks to the ability to locate every single terminal operating on the network in real time. To ensure pinpoint in-building accuracy at all times, over 150 radio beacons are being installed across the airport’s indoor areas.

Worker safety was a primary consideration for the airport in choosing its supplier, as the airport has to meet stringent safety standards in a variety of operational environments, including its secured parking areas. 

A part of the airport’s fleet of Sepura STP8000 radios will be used with DIGIBox, a special device developed by SYSOCO incorporating an additional radio location board for indoor tracking and guard tour services.
