|Includes: CalAmp Corp. (CAMP)

CalAmp, a leading provider of wireless products, services, and solutions, has won a contract from the Erie County, Pennsylvania Department of Public Safety to install a cutting edge mobile data network for law enforcement and fire services. To be completed within a year, the contract includes seven base stations and more than 100 mobile radios.

The project award includes system engineering, implementation, and project management services during all phases of the program, as well as technical support following system deployment.

Several of CalAmp's most advanced technologies will be used in the deployment of their latest generation native-IP mobile data communications system, including Paragon4 base stations and Gemini3 agile dual-band mobile modems. Furthermore, CalAmp's proprietary Parallel Decode technology will allow for in-motion, high-speed mobile data delivery across 1,500 square miles in Erie County.

The Erie County project will provide a significant technological upgrade over the existing private radio network that was installed by CalAmp nearly 12 years ago.

Erie County Director of Public Safety Todd Geers explained, "When it came time to expand our emergency services communications network and increase its functionality, we turned to CalAmp once again for a reliable mobile data technology solution that can grow to meet our future needs as well."

Mike Zachan, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp's Wireless Networks business, expressed his pleasure with the project, saying, "We are gratified that Erie County has again selected CalAmp for its mobile communications network. Our versatile Paragon/Gemini Agile Dual-Band IP mobile network meets today's mission-critical requirements with a robust, wide-area mobile data solution. It also lays the foundation for future network enhancements, such as 4G broadband communications, that will help ensure that the 280,000-plus residents of Erie County get the emergency service they need, at the critical times when they need it the most."
