Germany adopts Sepura TETRA radios

Over 400,000 Sepura TETRA radios have now been delivered to BDBOS users in 11 German states.

To support these devices, more than half of the installed base has now agreed long-term software maintenance contracts with Sepura and its partners in Germany, SELECTRIC, ensuring that users get maximum benefit from their Sepura devices.

Due to the gradual rollout of TETRA terminals by different federal states over time, Germany’s emergency services have at any one time a range of Sepura terminal and software versions. Regular firmware updates are essential to ensure the continued effectiveness of their wireless communications. The new maintenance contracts cover existing software as well as future BDBOS IOP upgrade requirements to support enriched radio software, ensuring the requirements of German BOS users will always be met.

Sepura will provide German customers with fit-for-purpose radios and accessories, working closely with its partners and end users to develop the latest capabilities to meet their needs. The introduction of the Sepura SC2 series to the market helps to facilitate quick and cost-efficient hardware upgrades, enabling accessory re-use from previous Sepura radios and adoption to the latest TETRA radio features.

“We are very pleased to continue cooperation with Sepura and to deliver to German BOS users the latest in TETRA technology. This is a testament to the high-quality standards we set for working with our long-time customers to deliver products and services that meet their high standards,” said Hendrik Pieper, Managing Director of SELECTRIC.

“We are successfully delivering innovative products and highly specialised solutions and have supplied 400,000 Sepura BOS devices in 11 federal states supporting the security forces in their daily work. We continue to work alongside our customers to provide them with tailor-made solutions now and in the future,” said Hooman Safaie, Regional Director Germany at Sepura.
