The Bavarian Police and the Bavarian Red Cross used Sepura TETRA terminals during the recent G7 summit held in Schloss Elmau, Krün, Bavaria, Germany on 7–8 June 2015. During the conference almost 18,000 TETRA radios were used on a daily basis.
This annual summit, the highest profile global conference, brings together the heads of state from the countries which make up the G7 group. In order to run successfully and guarantee the maximum levels of security and safety for the VIP delegates and their teams, this conference needs secure and flawless communications.
The emergency services organisations deployed for the event used the German public safety TETRA network for their communications using infrastructure supplied by Airbus Defence & Space, which also equipped the security forces at the venue with a customised secure TETRA system for the event.
Hooman Safaie, country manager for Sepura in Germany: “Police forces in Bavaria - Sepura users since 2009 - are very familiar with our technology. We can say with confidence that the secure and reliable communications provided by Sepura TETRA radios enabled the smooth running of the summit.”
Safaie continued: “Just six years after market entry, Sepura is now the leading supplier of TETRA radios to the German public safety sector with over 300,000 radios shipped to date. Today over 50% of BOS-net (German public safety network) users trust Sepura technology and this is testament to the strong and successful relationship between Sepura and our longstanding channel partner Selectric.”
