Hytera has opened a permanent office and centre of competence in Lima, Peru, following strong sales of TETRA and DMR two-way radio equipment in the region. The office, which opened yesterday (4 September 2014) also houses a centre of competence focusing on the TETRA and DMR two-way radio standards.
The company said that a variety of new projects and signs of further demand for two-way radio products within the Latin American market revealed the need for further specialised support in that area. After successfully gaining entry to markets in both the public and private sector, Hytera has now strengthened its sales, project management and technical efforts in Peru within the new office.
In Latin America, Hytera Communications (the parent company headquartered in Shenzhen, China) and Hytera Mobilfunk (the German subsidiary providing the TETRA centre of competence) and its partners have positioned themselves as the leading provider for TETRA/TEDS and DMR digital communications systems, according to the company.
The company went on to say in a statement that customers in public safety, public transport and utilities have especially profited from the latest generation of Hytera’s ACCESSNET-T IP TETRA technology.
Mission critical customers, including different ministries and governmental organisations in Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Peru, Brazil and Argentina, have all improved their communication systems by using Hytera TETRA and DMR digital communications solutions.
Matthias Klausing, chief executive officer of Hytera Mobilfunk, said: “ We are very pleased to open an office in such a rapidly growing market like Peru. The past successes, especially in Peru, have shown an ongoing demand for mission critical communications. To have a task force on site that can react fast and reliably is the best way to support our customers in Latin America.”
