EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. Announces New Products at APCO 2008
Company introduces 4.9 GHz access point for public safety and participates in ISSI demonstration
Irving, TX — EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: EFJI) announced today that it will be introducing a 4.9 GHz access point for public safety at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) Conference and Expo August 3 – 7 at the Kansas City Convention Center.
“Public safety agencies are driving the demand for licensed spectrum and broadband products that operate in the 4.9 GHz band,” said Michael Jalbert, president and chief executive officer of EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. “The new 4.9 GHz option for our field-proven broadband products builds upon our mission to provide the most secure, comprehensive solutions for the public safety market. EF Johnson Technologies designs integrated communications solutions – including P25 interoperable radios – and now enhances its offering with encrypted wireless broadband products that meet the rigorous, real-time data and video needs of today’s first responders.”
In addition, the company will participate in the Project 25 Inter RF-Sub-system Interface (ISSI) Multi-Vendor Interoperability Demonstration during the show. “ISSI is a milestone in wireline interoperability,” Jalbert said, “The P25 ISSI interface will enable two or more disparate, trunked, P25 networks to be connected at the network layer. It will provide roaming across multiple networks while enabling dispatchers to monitor operations and communicate with users outside of their coverage areas. Our participation further demonstrates our commitment to developing interoperable communications solutions to the latest standards.”
