CalAmp Announces the Viper-200 IP Router for Licensed 200 MHz Spectrum

OXNARD, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) -  CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless communication solutions, today announced the availability of the Viper-200, a leading edge wireless Ethernet/IP router and bridge for high speed, high-power licensed operations in the 216 to 222 MHz band. The 200 MHz spectrum is prized for its long-range and interference-free communications in SmartGrid, Smart Field and SCADA applications. 

The Viper-200 significantly advances the state-of-the-art in industrial-grade licensed networking solutions, with power output to 10 watts, data rates up to 128 kbps and full router and bridge capability. Viper-200 also sets new standards for wireless security. In addition to a Radius client, this radio offers protocols such as AES 128, 192 and 256-bit encryption in a CalAmp-designed cryptographic module that has been built to meet requirements in the NIST FIPS 140-2 standard.

Like existing Viper models in the VHF, UHF and 900 MHz bands, the Viper-200 supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint network configuration options and offers single radio store-and-forward operation. This permits network designers to create multi-hop peer-to-peer-like architectures that significantly reduce the need for, and cost of, additional wireless infrastructure.

"Our radios are designed for maximum deployment flexibility," stated Rick Nozel, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for CalAmp. "The Viper-200 continues this tradition with unparalleled industrial RF networking features. This radio addresses range, coverage and reliability -- all familiar shortcomings associated with unlicensed communications in challenging terrain and dense RF environments. With the Viper-200, engineers, integrators and end users now have deployment options that were unthinkable even a few years ago."
