CalAmp Launches Fusion-LTE 4G Broadband Router Platform for Industrial and Smart Grid Applications

OXNARD, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2012) - CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has introduced the high-performance, multi-band Fusion-LTE 4G router platform to enable broadband communications for industrial, Smart Grid and other mission-critical applications.

The Fusion-LTE operates on the latest 4G cellular networks, giving users unparalleled communications speed and throughput for data-intensive applications. In the absence of 4G coverage, the auto-adapting device will fall back to 3G performance. This new broadband router provides wireless data connectivity in bands 13, 14 and 17 at 4G speeds over both public and private LTE networks with applications supported over CalAmp's COLT cloud-based enterprise server platform. Embedded Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS capability afford users the option of mobile communications and navigation services to meet additional field requirements.

"As we enter the era of 'The Internet of Things,' where nearly every object and device can be connected, Fusion-LTE's broadband speeds will allow our customers to future proof their communications systems in preparation for data requirements yet unknown. In particular, Fusion-LTE will help make possible a variety of mission-critical, fixed-remote and mobile applications within our target markets," said Mike Zachan, General Manager of CalAmp's Wireless Networks business.

The Fusion-LTE can be seen at CalAmp's booth #1720 at the DistribuTECH conference in San Antonio, Texas, January 24-26. CalAmp expects to begin shipping the Fusion-LTE wireless broadband router in the first calendar quarter of 2012.
