Brazilian State Selects Sepura Radios to Help with Border Security
Wednesday, March 24, 2021 | Comments

The Brazilian state of Mato Grosso deployed a multi-agency communications solution using Sepura’s SC20 TETRA radios to support security operations on the border with neighboring Bolivia.

The solution enables coordination between the Border Task Force, Military and Civilian Police forces, the Military Fire Department and other supporting agencies. The solution is an extension of the TETRA network currently in operation in the Brazilian state, built on infrastructure provided by Teltronic. The Sepura SC20 radios interact with Teltronic’s control CeCoCo NG center solution, ensuring that operations can be seamlessly coordinated and information shared between the various operational teams.

The SC20 provides users with a powerful TETRA communications device with loud, clear audio and a robust design to withstand repeated rough treatment in tough environments. The SC20 also benefits from advanced connectivity options, allowing links to data sources and improving the situational awareness of both control room staff and field officers. The radio’s large screen ensures that images and text-based messages can be clearly read in varying light conditions, adding another element to the team’s ability to communicate.

The border between Brazil and Bolivia is characterized by a changing landscape, from dense rainforest to urban developments. The SC20 is equally at home in either, as it benefits from water porting technology, meaning that even in torrential downpours or areas with significant moisture, the radio will maintain outstanding service. Meanwhile, its loud audio and flexible set of audio accessories mean that voice communications will be heard even in noisy environments. In addition its extended range ensures that communications are maintained, whether based in remote areas with undulating terrain or in high rise urban areas.

“The SC20 is a trusted device for public-safety officers around the world,” said Terence Ledger, worldwide sales director at Sepura. “We have seen many organizations adopt the radio to maintain the advantage of TETRA networks and benefit from a market-leading tough, powerful radio. We are delighted to support police in Mato Grosso state and throughout Brazil with their operations and look forward to working with them to extend their communications solutions in the future.”
