As part of the Hytera group, Sepura was present at the exhibition to showcase its latest Tetra handheld radios, like SC20 which combines mission critical TETRA voice and data with a second high-speed data bearer and the lightweight SC21, the next-generation high-performance smart TETRA hand-held radio with crystal-clear audio and extended coverage as well as a highly usable keypad and large sunlight-visible screen. SC21 offers all the benefits of a small, lightweight radio with no compromise on functionality or performance.

Sepura also demonstrated the flexibility of its TETRA range, by showcasing two Short Data Applications (SDA) developed by one of its channel partners.
