Metropolitan Police Service Invests in Sepura TETRA Terminals in Refresh
Wednesday, March 13, 2019 | Comments

The Metropolitan Police Service selected Sepura’s SC2 series of TETRA terminals to replace its existing fleet in an agreement forming one of the largest single orders ever received by the U.K.-based TETRA device manufacturer.

The decision to purchase Sepura terminals was taken after an extensive trial with the devices across numerous sites with varied teams within the force. The fleet will comprise both Sepura’s SC20 and SC21 terminals. The choice of terminal will be available to officers dependent on their operational requirement. This flexibility will be supported by a common user interface across devices ensuring that users will be familiar immediately with their allocated terminal.

A bespoke software release was developed to deliver specific functionality, supporting the operational performance of the Metropolitan Police. With future innovation through the AppSPACE software environment, the new terminals will help to drive operational efficiencies.

The fleet will number more than 32,000 terminals from the SC2 series and SRG3900 mobile series, supplemented by Sepura’s range of audio accessories. These will be deployed throughout 2019, with the first devices going live in May and all devices operational by December.

“The outstanding feedback from the Metropolitan Police trial users was that the SC20 and SC21 devices were significant upgrades on their existing terminals, with improved audio and an intuitive user interface allowing officers to use the terminal quickly with minimum expense on training,” said Gary Maughan, regional director for Sepura U.K. and Ireland. “By taking the time to understand the force requirements, we were able to deploy innovative solutions that will enhance forcewide operations and TETRA fleet maintenance. We look forward to working closely with the MPS to deploy the devices and further support their communication requirements.”
