Mission critical communications device provider Sepura and broadband MCX solutions enabler Softil jointly announce that Softil’s Mission Critical Push-to Talk, Data and Video (MCX) Software Development Kit (SDK) has been adopted by Sepura to support its Android OS-based broadband vehicle and handheld communication devices and applications.

The announcement underlines Sepura’s continued commitment to provide interoperable communications solutions to meet the needs of mission and business critical users. Leveraging both narrowband and broadband technologies, Sepura’s broadband vehicle and handheld solutions combine the robust mission critical communications provided by TETRA, with the rich communications offered by MCX technology. First responders in blue light organisations and users in commercial and business-critical environments, such as mining and transportation, will be the first to benefit.

Sepura’s broadband devices support Mission Critical Voice (MCPTT) and data (MCData) features. Built on the Android operating system, the devices provide compatibility with a wide range of applications which have been designed to run on existing Android smartphones and tablets. Sepura has chosen to add MCX capabilities as part of the device’s firmware which is the only way to guarantee full utilisation of the device’s powerful hardware capabilities. This, in turn, dramatically enhances the user experience and delivers exceptional performance and stringent adherence to standard and service provider-specific KPIs.
