CCW 2016: Sepura secures TETRA contracts in Latin America

Sepura has picked up two contracts in Latin America. It has one for the State Government of Amapá, Brazil, which has chosen Sepura to provide a critical communications solution for its Police and Emergency Services. It has a second contract in Mexico to supply a complete voice communication system for Line 3 of the Guadalajara Metro.

The solution for Amapá will provide secure voice and data services for public safety agencies throughout the state capital of Macapá and comprises a Nebula TETRA network, eight base stations and 300 radios – a combination of STP9000, STP8X and SRG3900. 

Ademir Borges, Sepura’s sales manager for the region, said: “Our solutions are the choice of countless public safety organisations worldwide. I am confident that this investment will improve the quality and reliability of communications, reinforcing the efforts of police and emergency services in the area.”

Gastão Valente Calandrini, Amapá’s Secretary of Justice and Public Safety, commented: “After thorough assessment, it became clear that Sepura’s proposal was an excellent – and cost-effective – match for our operational requirements.

“This new digital TETRA system will significantly enhance critical communications for our public safety agencies, contributing to quicker response times and an improved service for the people of Amapá.”

Guadalajara Metro Line 3

Teltronic, part of the Sepura Group, has been chosen by Alstom to supply a complete voice communication system for Line 3 of the Guadalajara Metro – a brand new line, currently under construction.

The 21.4km line will cross the full length of the city and will link 18 stations with a combination of underground and elevated running.

The Teltronic solution will consist of Nebula TETRA infrastructure, a CeCoCo control centre, 18 RTP-603 on-board units, 18 SRG3900 mobile radios and 100 STP9000 hand-portables and will provide communications between all staff on Line 3, including drivers, maintenance and security staff, inspectors and the control centre.

“This prestigious win builds on our strong working relationship with Alstom, proven over many previous projects,” said Felipe Sanjuan Pasamar, business development director for Teltronic.

“Our cutting-edge solution leverages the power of TETRA technology to overcome a number of technical challenges – due to a combination of underground and elevated running – addressing the daily operational requirements of Guadalajara Metro and making a vital contribution to the safe transportation of millions of passengers."
