Expanding on a long-standing relationship with Sepura and Northcom, the new agreement will provide Norway's front-line field officers with the choice of Sepura’s SC20 and SC21 handheld radios, while fleet vehicles and control rooms will be equipped with Sepura’s SCG22 mobile radio.
As well as radios, the agreement also includes the purchase of audio and power accessories, service agreements, product training, and support with programming and maintenance over an initial four-year period.
“Reliable communications in all situations and all kind of weather is imperative to the Norwegian Police. Northcom has worked extensively with the customer to ensure the SC Series radios are the ideal solution to match their communication needs. We are delighted they have put their trust in Northcom to supply the radios, accessories and key support services.”Gjermund Torp, Key Account Manager, Northcom
Police IT Unit (PIT) Delivery Area Manager Stian Kaasa, responsible for the agreement for PIT, said “The agreement is the result of the close working relationship between the product and procurement experts within the PIT and strong engagement from user representatives from across the country.”
Norwegian Police have been long-term users of Sepura TETRA radios since purchasing their first devices in 2013. As Sergei Yarushin, Business Development Manager, Nordics at Sepura commented; “Sepura is proud of our long working relationship with both Northcom and the Norwegian Police. We are delighted to continue to serve the customer for the next four years, supporting the vital work the Police do across Norway.”
The new agreement confirms Sepura’s status as a key TETRA radio provider not only to Norwegian Police but also to the wider emergency services in Norway.
