Westell introduces Public Safety signal boosters listed to the UL 2524 standard
- Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL) announced today the release of its new Enhanced Public Safety Class B Signal Booster products tested and listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory to the new UL 2524 Standard, In-building 2-Way Emergency Radio Communication Enhancement Systems. Westell’s distributor partners are accepting orders for immediate availability.
Building owners, first responders and building inspectors across the country have recognized the critical importance of reliable two-way indoor communications for emergency responders including Fire, Police and EMS. Modern energy efficient building materials can block almost all of the RF signal from outdoor transmitters resulting in unreliable public safety signal coverage in these buildings.
“Our extensive knowledge and customer research with integrators and AHJ’s (Authorities Having Jurisdiction) enabled us to develop what we believe is the easiest to design, deploy, and optimize signal boosters available on the market today, which are also among the first signal boosters listed to the UL 2524 standard,” said J. J. Swartwood, Sr. Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
