Sepura is showcasing its new Over the Air Programming (OTAP) capability at Critical Communications World in Kuala Lumpur.
Developed to support easier management and upgrade of TETRA radio fleets, Over the Air Programming enables remote updates and upgrades of software and features on Sepura’s latest SC Series of radios through Wi-Fi connectivity.
Fleet Managers face logistical headaches having to collect radios back from sites to install radio upgrades in the traditional way. Enabling operational teams to save time, reduce costs, and keep radios in service through automatic re-programming, Sepura OTAP can deliver significant operational savings.
Utilising the Wi-Fi found in the newly launched SCG22 mobile terminal and the SC20 and SC21 hand-portable radios, alongside Sepura
Radio Manager 2, additional features or AppSPACE apps can now be downloaded and installed to radios, without the need for taking radios out of service.
Phil Woodley, Sepura Head of TETRA products said “Sepura Over the Air Programming, is future proofing TETRA devices, enabling updates to be delivered in the field, through secure connection to Wi-Fi. Secure authentication and full encryption ensure radios are never compromised and can remain fully operational and working optimally.”
