Sepura SC21 radio approved for Airwave Network

Airwave and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) have approved the Sepura SC21 hand-portable radio for use on the UK’s Airwave Network.

It is the second terminal in Sepura’s SC2 Series to receive network approval, joining the SC20 as an advanced solution for mission-critical voice and data communications.

The SC21 is the latest terminal in the TETRA range that Sepura supplies to UK mission-critical users and provides a number of benefits to support operational staff. Chief amongst these is the ability to support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, futureproofing the device to support operations during the transition to ESN.

“The SC21 has been designed with the user in mind; it is rugged, user-friendly and flexible. Despite its small size and light weight it can still host one of the largest screens on a TETRA device, providing visibility in all lighting conditions,” said Sepura Head of Products — TETRA Devices Phil Woodley.

“The advanced design of the SC21 offers support for additional data bearers and provides an audio capability that is the best available to TETRA users, coupled with an additional 4 dB of sensitivity and Class 3 RF power to maximise coverage even in enclosed locations.”

The small, lightweight design of the SC21 combined with a specifically designed short antenna means it can be worn comfortably on the shoulder or hidden unobtrusively for covert operations. The choice of user interface can be configured to replicate that of currently deployed radios, minimising training requirements and user confusion while operating under pressure.

Between them the SC2 series hand-portables enhance the user experience by enabling data sharing through narrowband data applications and providing superior audio even in extreme weather conditions. As the UK continues to move towards ESN, these devices provide cutting-edge technology for today’s mission-critical users.
