Radio supplier Sepura and their Dutch TETRA partner Abiom have won multiple agreements to refresh the nationwide deployment of TETRA mobile and hand-portable radios as used by the Dutch Police. The firms have been awarded every one of the recent tenders for the provision of critical communications.
Abiom has already deployed a number of radios; over 57,000 hand-portable terminals for use by operational users besides nearly 10,000 SRG3900 mobiles radios for public safety vehicles in the Netherland’s regional police forces. Abiom was also awarded the contract to supply forces with over 400 specialist Intrinsically-Safe radios, as used by emergency responders on hazardous sites.
Together the contracts account for a refresh of the total operational stock of Dutch National Police TETRA radio terminals. The contracts also include the accessories, so that the radios can be set up in a way to maximise each user’s operational capability, such as access to functions and audio clarity, the product firms add.
Gary Maughan, Regional Director for North Central Europe at Sepura said: “The radios share a common user interface, ensuring that we can offer our customers a seamless transition to their new devices while minimising officer training.”
Sepura adds that its solution closely matched each tender requirement. This included Sepura’s RSM audio accessory for the hand portable radio, in-country technical support and repair facilities and a five year warranty on devices. Visit www.sepura.com.
Other users include mountain and sea rescue, lifeguards, ambulance workers; and the Met Police.
