Sepura announced the launch of its new 800MHz radios at the global critical communications event, Comms Connect, Australia.
Sepura’s new STP9000 series of hand portables and the SRG3900 mobile radios in 800MHz have been developed in 800MHz variants to serve customers in emerging markets including North America and Canada, as well as to grow their market share in Australia, Brazil, China, South America and the Asian continent.
Mark Barnby, Senior Product Manager for Sepura explains that the 800MHz market is very important to Sepura. With the delivery of the 800MHz variants of both their market-leading TETRA hand portables, the STP9000 and the SRG3900, the company is gearing up for their expansion into North America, while also consolidating their position in major emerging markets such as Australia, Brazil and China.
Sepura’s 800MHz STP9000 series
The 800MHz STP9000 series is designed to operate in extremely challenging environments, and incorporates all of the market-leading attributes of Sepura’s flagship STP8000 series hand portables. Additionally, the hand portable includes a new generation of highly sensitive GPS with ‘predictive ephemeris’, plus an evolved, more intuitive user interface, improved full duplex audio and battery performance, and a whole new level of robustness inherited from the development of Sepura’s state-of-the-art STP8X Intrinsically Safe TETRA radio.
The new 800MHz STP9000 series radios are all IP67 rated and boast a contemporary and cutting-edge look. The 800MHz STP9000 series’ GPS capability permits the tracking of personnel, even when deployed in environments where other TETRA GPS solutions fail.
Its design retains 100% compatibility with existing STP8000 accessories and software, allowing re-use of existing investment and minimising the total cost of ownership. Training costs are also reduced with current users finding the radios’ evolved UI familiar while new recruits will find it equally intuitive.
Sepura’s 800MHz SRG3900 series
The 800MHz SRG3900 mobile radios are designed to meet the needs of demanding users within the transport, utility and public safety markets looking for a powerful feature-rich TETRA mobile with flexible installation options, making it suitable for use in cars, trucks, mobile and fixed control rooms, motorcycles, aircraft and even boats and trains.
The release of the new 800MHz SRG3900 demonstrates Sepura’s continued investment in the 800MHz band. The new 800MHz SRG3900 inherits all of the market-leading attributes of its predecessor, such as dual remote console support for maximum flexibility in use, a powerful 10W RF power rating and full gateway and repeater functionality to keep the user connected even in the most challenging of environments.
