Sepura provides SC20 series to 19,000 end users in public safety organisation


Sepura PLC (LSE: SEPU, "the Group"), a leading global provider of critical communications solutions, has been selected by a large continental European public safety organisation to provide 19,000 SC20 series hand-portable radios.  They are Wi-Fi enabled and ready to transmit and receive high speed data in a similar way to smartphones.


Submersible, waterproof, salt-resistant and dustproof, the SC20 series also boasts market-leading IP66, IP67 and IP68 environmental protection ratings and an easy-clean design, which allows it to be rinsed in running water.


Gary Aitkenhead, Sepura's VP Devices, commented:


"The contract builds on our well-established strength in public safety - a market in which we have long held a world-leading position.  It also marks a step forward in TETRA communications for the public safety organisation.  


"The ability to utilise data applications so end-users can send and receive data, as they do with their smartphones, is a key new development.  Along with the extended coverage and exceptional toughness, the SC20 series will drive efficiency, future-proofing the customer's investment while helping to meet their evolving communications requirements in the digital age.


"Its unique water-porting technology, combined with 2W audio output, ensures clarity of communications - even in harsh conditions. It also provides capabilities never before associated with a TETRA device, including over-the-air programming via Wi-Fi, control of a body-worn camera, or tethering to a smartphone or tablet device by Bluetooth or Wi-Fi."
