Sepura SC20 portables obtain Airwave approval

Sepura’s flagship series of hand-portable radios, the SC20, has been approved for use on Airwave, the UK emergency services network.

“The SC20 radios have been designed to provide a smarter user experience,” said Mark Barnby, Sepura’s head of product management for devices.

“Class 3 high-power RF transmission, coupled with exceptional receive sensitivity, gives the SC20 series extended operational range, stretching coverage into areas and buildings where it was not possible before,” he added.

Barnby said the SC20’s high-speed, second data-bearer option places it in a unique position, providing the potential to offer capabilities not before associated with a TETRA device, such as over-the-air programming via Wi-Fi, control of a body-worn camera or tethering to a smartphone or tablet device by Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

“This is coupled with an extended applications capability that puts real back-office intelligence into the hands of the Airwave user,” he said.

“We are delighted that these revolutionary radios are now available to the UK’s public safety users,” said Gary Maughan, Sepura’s regional director UK&I.

“The ability to utilise narrowband data applications, extended coverage, superior audio and exceptional toughness of the SC20 series will drive efficiency and enhance the experience and evolving communications requirements of the UK’s public safety users during the transition to ESN [Emergency Services Network].”
