Multi-Band, Multi-Carrier, High-Speed Fusion-LTE Meets the Need for Mobile Broadband Communications in a Variety of Field Application Settings

CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has announced that its high-performance Fusion™-LTE 4G router platform now supports European network LTE frequency bands and is commercially available throughout Europe for use in public safety, transportation, rail and other mission-critical applications.

The Fusion-LTE 4G router operates on the latest 4G cellular services, giving users unparalleled communications throughput and reduced latency for data-intensive applications ranging from streaming video, vehicle area network, reliable and positive control, comprehensive data record access, intelligent dispatch and work flow, and more. In addition, the Fusion LTE router can operate on two independent 4G networks, enabling multi-carrier access and user-defined failover criteria to improve communications reliability. In the absence of 4G coverage, Fusion automatically falls back to 3G or 2G operation depending on the best available network.

Embedded Wi-Fi® and Ethernet connectivity allow the Fusion-LTE 4G router to function as a communications hub in the field, connecting multiple devices such as laptops, tablets, video cameras and other peripheral equipment locally, to enable sharing of files, images and other vital data with the business operations center over LTE networks. Onboard precision GPS capability facilitates an array of mobile communications and navigation services to meet additional field requirements.

"Fusion-LTE's rich feature set and broadband speed enables our customers throughout the European Union and other regions to access today's high-speed, high-data networks, while future-proofing their communications systems in preparation for data requirements yet unknown. CalAmp's versatile dual network capable Fusion-LTE router will facilitate a variety of mission-critical, fixed-remote and mobile applications in Europe," said Mike Zachan, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp's Wireless Networks business.
