IRVING, Texas, Aug. 14 EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EFJI) announced today that it will highlight several new products for first responders at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials annual conference and exposition, August 16 - 19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"We are introducing two innovative system solutions - Hybrid IP25(TM) and IP25 Freedom Tracker(TM) - that will provide outstanding system coverage and cost effectiveness. Hybrid IP25 is the first true hybrid Project 25 trunked and conventional network, in which first responders will be able to operate and interoperate between the conventional and trunked systems. IP25 Freedom Tracker will enable seamless roaming across radio systems without missing a call," said Michael Jalbert, president and chief executive officer of EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. "Hybrid IP25 eliminates the need for dispatchers to manually patch calls between the two systems. Our hybrid radio system is based on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) which enables it to gracefully scale to accommodate future expansions. A hybrid system is the most cost-effective way to provide wide area coverage and innovative features such as roaming and mobility, which are normally only found on trunked systems that cost millions of dollars more. Hybrid IP25 and IP25 Freedom Tracker are our newest system offerings, and expand upon our commitment to both trunked and conventional Project 25 infrastructure systems."
Jalbert added, "We are also introducing a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) option for our ES Series Portable and Mobile Radios. This TDMA option will provide first responders with a migration path to the next phase in interoperability."
In addition, the Company will present the "Convergence of video, voice, and data in public safety" education session on Tuesday, August 18 from 4:15 to 5:15 P.M., the speaker is David Lukeson, director of systems.
