Sapura operates the Government Integrated Radio Network (GIRN) which utilises some 600 TETRA base stations to serve more than 40,000 Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) users in 16 agencies throughout Malaysia. With technology central to Sapura’s six key business areas, the company’s unwavering commitment to R&D, innovation and building capability has enabled it to be globally competitive in the provision of secured communications solutions for the security enforcement and defence industry, as well as across commercial vertical markets such as oil and gas, railway, manufacturing and aviation.
Mohd Zarif Hashim, Sapura Group COO said: “CCW is the established annual showcase for the latest developments in critical communications, and the platform for shaping the future of this market. As official Host Operator, we are delighted to welcome the event and all attendees to Malaysia, and to demonstrate the strengths of our region to the critical communications world.”
