Teltronic Successful at International Critical Communication Awards


SIRCE, the integrated radio critical communication system of Rio de Janeiro, has been awarded Best Use of Control Room Systems at the International Critical Communication Awards.

The SIRCE solution, provided by Teltronic, part of the Sepura Group, will play a vital role in communications at the Rio Olympics, supporting more than 18,000 police radios.

Base stations with up to 12 TETRA transceivers will support high traffic loads throughout the event; a CeCoCo Control Centre will support more than 100 dispatch operators; and Teltronic’s Synchronous Data Manager application will pare down the GPS refresh time in AVL applications.

The communication solution was also a finalist in the ‘Best use of TETRA for Public Safety’, ‘Green Technology’ and ‘Excellence in Radio Sites and Services’ categories.

"This victory shows that Rio de Janeiro has one of the most modern and intelligent integrated critical communications systems in the world, enabling uninterrupted contact in case of emergency," said security secretary Jose Mariano Beltrame.

Superintendent of critical communications at the Security Secretariat of the State, Colonel Alexandre Corval, commented: "We are extremely happy to have chosen Teltronic. The company has been a trustworthy partner to our public safety agencies for over ten years. They have exceeded our expectations in terms of technical development, quality of deployment and, above all, their dedication to customer service.

"We are confident that this extension to the existing Teltronic TETRA system will optimise our mission critical communications, enhancing the security of both visitors and employees throughout Rio 2016."
