Sepura TETRA radios enabled the smooth running of the 2009 Mediterranean Games which took place in Pescara, Italy, from 25 June to 5 July, 2009. The radios were supplied to the event's organising committee by GEG SRL, one of Sepura's Italian partners.

The Mediterranean Games, organised every four years, stand as the greatest sporting event of the Mediterranean region, attracting the participation of the maritime countries where Europe, Africa and Asia meet. This year athletes from 23 countries competed in 28 sports.

Sepura hand-held radios were an integral part of a digital communication solution delivered by GEG in the record time of just one week! The solution, which included a TETRA infrastructure and a geo-localisation system, provided complete coverage to the extensive area in which all the sport competitions took place.

Sepura radios' in-built and highly-sensitive GPS device allowed the event's organisers and support personnel to be precisely tracked and appropriately deployed for each task whenever and wherever requirements arose.

This is not Sepura's first involvement in this event; its radios were also used at the XV Mediterranean Games which took place in Almeria, Spain in 2005. The radios were used by the municipal police in charge of the Games' security.

"Selecting Sepura radios gave the Mediterranean Games' organisers everything they needed, from good support and reliability through to secure communications," commented Walter Gotti, Managing Director for GEG. Gotti continued: "Once again, thanks to Sepura radios, GEG succeeded in securing such a prestigious contract for this high profile European sport event."

"Events of this scale depend on effective, reliable and secure communications between all parties and Sepura has once again demonstrated its undisputed expertise in this field," said Emanuele Algieri, Regional Sales Director for Sepura.
