Sepura DMR technology reaches Mongolia

Cambridge, 1st July 2015 – The Municipality of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, has selected Sepura DMR technology for its public safety organisations. This contract was achieved in conjunction with Global Telecom, Sepura’s channel partner in Mongolia.

Sepura’s DMR solution will replace the municipality’s legacy analogue system whilst running alongside an existing TETRA infrastructure supplied by Teltronic (a Sepura Group company) in 2010. This new system meets the important objective of the municipal organisation’s major initiative to address and improve risk prevention and disaster management in the Mongolian capital.

Sepura’s channel partner, Global Telecom, a highly specialised systems integrator, will oversee the migration from analogue to digital communications for the entire municipality; it will be responsible for the complete installation and deployment of the new system and will deliver training to the public safety user teams operating in the Mongolian capital.

Batgerel Chuluunnast, General Manager for Global Telecom, commented: “The superior quality of Sepura radios, the high levels of support provided throughout the bidding process and the extensive product portfolio presented, were instrumental in securing this prestigious contract. Sepura radios will be beneficial to users operating in the city’s noisy streets thanks to their crystal-clear audio and will allow clear and uninterrupted communication which is a vital requirement in emergency situations”.

Nash Chou, Business Development Manager for Sepura said: “This is our first DMR success in Mongolia and we are delighted to be able to share it with Global Telecom. I believe that the strength of our offering, together with our impressive track record with municipality organisations around the world, have been contributing factors to this impressive achievement”.

Ulaanbaatar is the capital and the largest city of Mongolia with a population of over 1.3 million; it is an independent municipality and is not part of any province. Located in north central Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar is the cultural, industrial and financial heart of the country. It is the centre of Mongolia’s road network and is connected by rail to both the Trans-Siberian Railway and the Chinese railway system.
