The Munich undergound rail network has deployed around 1,800 TETRA radios, supplied by Sepura
According to a statement released by the company, the roll-out - which involves its SC20 model - has taken place as part of Stadwerke München’s “major project” to renew its radio system.
The deployment has taken place in collaboration with Sepura’s regional partner Selectric. It’s managing director, Hendrik Pieper, said: “Sepura products are known around the world as tough and reliable.
“We have achieved success in the world’s largest TETRA market by combining [these] with outstanding customer service to users in public safety and commercial organisations throughout the country. We look forward to continuing to support these customers in the future.”
Selectric also supplied microphones and charging pods “specially developed to user specifications” to the project, as well as managing the integration of TETRA into the existing control centre.
Hooman Safaie, Sepura regional sales director, said: “We have [reached] the landmark figure of half a million radios deployed in Germany. We are increasingly seeing commercial organisations with mission critical needs such as Stadwerke München adopting Sepura radios. We look forward to continuing to provide German users with first class communication solutions for many years to come.”
The full transition of the radios into active operation is expected at the end of this year.
