Mexico police overhaul critical communications infrastructure

Mexico City Police is overhauling its critical communications infrastructure in a bid to improve audio quality and reliability during mission-critical operations.

Many of the city’s 46,000 officers will soon be using the Sepura SC20 and STP9200 TETRA radios, with a further batch of 3000 devices to be deployed later this year.

Jorge Morera, Commercial Director of Sepura’s Mexico partner, Jomtel, said he was excited to see the technology being used in operations such general police work, custom checks, border patrols and city security.

“This is the first TETRA radio solution deployed by Mexico City Police, proof of the continuing demand for … TETRA technology,” he said.

“We have no doubt that the Sepura radios will expand the capabilities of the police teams in their mission-critical operations.”

Tim Mills, Sales Director for South America at Sepura, said there was even further scope for the technology to be deployed throughout the country’s police forces and that he expected demand to increase in the coming months and years.

“There is significant potential in Mexico to continue to develop the TETRA business for municipalities and other police organisations,” he said.

"We look forward to working with Jomtel to assist further forces to implement Sepura TETRA solutions.”
