TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2013) -  Cassidian Communications, an EADS North America company, will exhibit at the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) 2013 Conference & Expo in Charlotte, N.C. on June 15-20. Demonstrations of its complete suite of public safety communications solutions will take place in booth #302.

The value of these integrated solutions is embodied in the popular "call-to-car" demonstration, which showcases Cassidian Communications' NG9-1-1 call taking solutions interworking with its LTE devices and applications to deliver integrated voice, data and video communications from the initial 9-1-1 call to the response in the field.

"NENA is our opportunity to show the many ways in which our teams are continually working to enable public safety providers to do their indispensable jobs better, faster and more efficiently," said Bob Freinberg, CEO of Cassidian Communications. "Because of the countless, long-lasting relationships we have with the attendees of NENA conferences, the annual event has become a reunion of sorts for us."
