EF Johnson Technologies to Showcase New P25 Mobile Radio, Speaker Microphones and Availability of P25 Phase II Software

EF Johnson Technologies will announce a new P25 mobile radio, speaker microphones and the availability of P25 Phase II software as the latest enhancements to the company’s Viking subscriber portfolio during IWCE 2014 this week. The new mobile is called the VM600, which is a single-band TDMA mobile that is capable of P25 Phase I and Phase II operations. Like all Viking subscriber products, the VM600 hardware supports P25 Phase II, and this capability can be activated via a software upgrade that has been available since January. In addition, the VM600 can be integrated into EF Johnson’s Armada fleet-management software, which has received plaudits from the marketplace for its unique approach. EF Johnson also will showcase new speaker microphones for its Viking products.

EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. Wins $4-Million Contract to Deploy Waterbury, Connecticut Radio Communications System

EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a $4-million contract by the City of Waterbury, Connecticut, to deploy the next generation of the city's radio communications system. EFJohnson will provide its ATLAS(TM) P25 Trunked Simulcast System Solution, a complete Land Mobile Radio (LMR) simulcast solution featuring the company's patented, fully distributed architecture for outstanding reliability, resiliency and scalability. The ATLAS P25 Trunked Simulcast Solution is designed to provide customers with the most flexible communications solution in the industry for the lowest cost of ownership. The system's fully distributed architecture allows every simulcast site to control the entire simulcast network, making the system resilient to one or multiple failures across a wide-area network. ATLAS' distributed architecture also eliminates the need for expensive central controllers or master sites, enabling users to deploy a more efficient multi-site simulcast system and allow easy expansion as needs and budgets change. The City of Waterbury's ATLAS P25 system will include three nine-channel, 800 MHz, P25 trunked simulcast sites using EFJohnson's simulcast repeater. The repeater includes the voter comparator and simulcast controller in a single unit reducing spares and operational cost. The use of an integrated simulcast repeater in a distributed architecture eliminates the need for prime and master sites while significantly increasing redundancy and channel uptime. The system will also include 10 StarGate(TM) Dispatch Consoles at the City of Waterbury's dispatch center and four consoles at the new emergency operations center at Fire Station 11. EFJohnson's StarGate consoles feature next-generation graphical user interfaces and superior audio fidelity, which minimize the risk of miscommunication. The user-friendly and highly intuitive display modules improve workflow and require little downtime for operator training. Deployment of Waterbury's ATLAS P25 system is expected to take place in 2013.
