Spanish Police Force Deploys Sepura TETRA Radios
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 | Comments

Sepura partners Zenon Digital Radio and Adesal Telecom provided the Onda City Council in Spain with new TETRA digital radios for its police force.

Onda is a town in Valencia, eastern Spain, with more than 25,000 inhabitants. The city council wanted to facilitate and accelerate the work of the local police and improve efficiency.

The move to digital connected the force to COMDES, the digital communications network offered by the Generalitat Valenciana to all organizations and fleets providing crime prevention and rescue services. This network uses TETRA technology, which avoids network saturation during emergencies and provides security.

"This government not only cares about providing local agents with all the necessary safeguards for their security, we also provide the right resources to improve and facilitate their work, to enable them to serve the citizens more efficiently,” said Local Police Councillor Mari Carmen Aguilella.

Miguel Ángel Izquierdo, commissioner of the Onda Local Police, said each agent will have a personal radio and a secure network that will never fail to work in case of emergency, which was an issue with the old analog terminals. Izquierdo said that the new system will facilitate cost reductions and improve the operations of the police force through the use of shared control centers with other security and emergency bodies.

“The new telecommunication devices allow for interacting with other security forces as the situation requires, which ultimately benefits the work of the police,” he said.
