Hytera and Sepura, part of the Hytera Group and a market leader in TETRA radio technology, have showcased their cutting-edge PMR communications solutions at Comms Connect Melbourne in Australia on November 21-22.

 This is the second consecutive year that the company – as platinum sponsor – has represented the largest presence at the exhibition.

During the exhibition, Hytera has demonstrated its convergent solution along with a series of new products, including: PDC680, the new generation of Hytera multi-mode advanced radio which will be released in the second quarter next year; PNC550, a smart PoC terminal integrating smart phone and professional Push-to-talk Over Cellular (PoC) function with 5-inch HD screen; VM550, a pocket-size body worn camera weighing just 145g - making it the ideal companion for evidence collection, and a PoC dispatch application connect with PoC terminals. “The PMR industry is undergoing rapid evolution, and Hytera continues to demonstrate leadership in incorporating new technologies and compelling features in order to deliver more effective solutions for our customers”, said Terry Feng, General Manager of Hytera Australia.

TETRA specialist, Sepura, launched a new version of its groundbreaking, lightweight SC21 terminal which operates in the 402-470MHz band. The SC21 is a smart TETRA radio, designed to be small and lightweight but with no compromise on robustness or audio quality. This SC21, and other SC2 Series radios enabled Sepura to demonstrate innovative data applications that enhance the communications and operations of organizations which employ these devices. Examples of these apps include Bluetooth-enabled functionality to monitor, for example, user wellbeing, and the timely exchange of critical data such as weather reports, which can be vital in a hazardous mining or outdoor environment.

“Sepura continues to innovate to bring greater benefit to our users who depend on our products to keep their organizations communicating. Our TETRA portfolio continues to expand to the benefit of our customers”, said Terence Ledger, Sales and Marketing Director of Sepura.
