Oct 18, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
CalAmp, a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has announced a partnership with General Dynamics, or GD, Broadband to provide customized versions of CalAmp's multi-carrier broadband routers for use with GD Broadband LTE communications systems supporting public safety, defense and industrial applications.
"GD Broadband products and technologies can be found in public safety networks worldwide," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. "The addition of the CalAmp routers to the company's product portfolio ensures that our customers receive high-quality, cost-effective product options for their 4G/LTE network projects."
The first product under the agreement is CalAmp's Fusion-LTE broadband router, which operates on the latest 4G cellular networks and provides users with high-speed communications for data-intensive applications. The multi-mode broadband router provides wireless data connectivity at 4G speeds in band 13 and 17 LTE networks.
In addition, GD Broadband will offer band 12 and band 20 variants to enable access to privately licensed networks serving oil and gas, energy, utilities, public safety, defense and other high-end industrial applications. To ensure reliable connectivity, the multi-radio version of Fusion automatically falls back to 3G performance when 4G networks are unavailable.
"The versatility of our Fusion broadband router enables a wide range of mission-critical applications for GD Broadband infrastructure customers, providing exceptional performance with highly reliable network connectivity. CalAmp's multi-carrier solution allows GD Broadband customers to connect to both private and public LTE networks with a single device platform," said Mike Zachan, General Manager of CalAmp's Wireless Networks business.
