TESSCO Technologies Incorporated
(NASDAQ:TESS), a leading value-added distributor and solutions provider for the
wireless industry, today announced it has secured the entire first year production
capacity for CommScope’s new public safety product. CommScope’s Bi-Directional
Amplifier addresses a key need for reliable, cost-effective public safety
State and local building authorities
are increasingly mandating public safety wireless systems for new and even
existing commercial structures. To ensure that emergency responders have continuous
communication, these systems must meet strict criteria for continuous operation
during fires, floods and other emergencies. However, as non-commercial systems
they provide no direct return on investment, therefore building owners seek
simple and cost-effective solutions.
The CommScope Bi-Directional Amplifier
has been designed from the ground up to meet this need. As a repeater-based
solution, it takes signals over the air and thus requires a minimal footprint within
the building. It comes in a range of frequency band and power options, supports
battery backup, and is fully compliant with relevant National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA)
standards. It is software upgradeable.
